Heather Hates Stuff: Standing Still

It's not a secret that I get bored easily. Part of the reason I love digital is because it's always changing; there's always something new to learn. And speaking of learning, I've been doing a lot of that -- somewhat more formally than usual.

Last month, I took an Ideo U course on Insights for Innovation. Naturally I crammed an 8-week curriculum into a weekend, but I got a lot out of it and I now have a lame certificate to prove it.

And this week, I'm attending Vancouver's first Design & Content Conference. Today's topics included super heroes and sexual assault. The programming is... diverse, you could say. I'm pretty into it, and anything else that gets me out of the office and using my brain for something besides writing 17 different subheadline options for a cell phone banner ad.
