That brings us to end of #uxaustralia

@docbaty is thanking all the speakers, attendees and reflecting on how wonderful it is to meet new people and catch up with those we don't get to see often. To come and share our thoughts and conversations, experience and stories.
One thing he would like to pick up on is that the conference has touched on a few themes that he's hoping were thought provoking.
For many it may have been challenging.
They speak to some of the issues we need to deal with as a practice.
What they didn't touch on was some of the things we need to deal with as a society.

We have a massive capacity for collective action.

Collectively we have an opportunity to have an enormous impact.

Liz Jackson — Engaging in disability as a creative practice

#UXAustralia #UXA2019 #uxa19
While we're watching this video from this tweet, how does it make you feel?
Maybe you're inspired?
Maybe some faith in humanity?

If your blind you may say this add makes you feel a little different, exploited. But it has no audio. So it's not for them. So who's it for?

.@ivyhornibrook is up and I've missed the title of her talk!

UX Designers have the a huge amount of transferrable skills and would make great product managers

#uxaustralia #uxa19
Last yeah Ivy was having a robust discussion about whether or not Product Managers are just UXers?

So if the roles are so similar why do designers hate it?
Ivy says first look at the calendar.

Being able to immerse in a problem and properly think and synthesise some research, step back and reframe the problem is a struggle as a product manager.

Chris is here to talk to you about something he kind of made up and he wants you to hopefully see something new.

Our keynote speaker is @aral — Small Technology.

We have a problem and that problem is called surveillance capitalism.

It is about the accrual of wealth and the accrual of information.

What happens when those who have wealth invest in surveillance to accrue information to accrue more wealth.
It has created a huge power differential where the wealthy know a lot about you, and you know virtually nothing about them.

Kicking off UX Australia with Uncle Ray Davidson welcoming us to country.

Uncle Ray is reminding us we have one mother, mother earth and she loves us. If you're born on country then you belong to country and you are part of country.

.@docbaty: Almost 10 years to the day the first UX Australia was held. Over that 10 years the nature of the work we do had changed. In the first year it was focussed almost exclusively on web. No mobiles, tablets, services, the way tech integrates into the world around us.
When Steve sits in the audience he's amazed at how these tools and methods are applied today.

He hopes you can find wonderful connections that you can take back to your practice and further develop our industry.
