Code for America Summit 2016 – IDEO workshop

My first foray into the Code for America Summit!

To be honest, I expected something different from a “How might we?” session, which I’ve done before (and with IDEO to boot, at Stanford Medicine X), but really, any opportunity to work with IDEO folks is always inspiring. I’m endlessly impressed at how they’re effortlessly creative, and effectively facilitate without putting attention onto themselves. They make other people creative by encouraging them, which isn’t a flashy skill. Unless you’ve tried it before and know how difficult it is!

It’s something I feel I can hone better, which is why I take any opportunity to help mentor newbies at design workshops like this. Practice makes perfect! Or at least, gets me comfortable enough to not freak out when I’m doing it, hah.

Onto the live-tweets!
