A talk by ifenn at Midwest UX 2011

About the Talk

Born in Valdosta, Georgia, William Melvin "Bill" Hicks was a stand-up comedian, philosopher and a satirist. Widely recognised as one of the world’s greatest stand-up comedians, his premature death aged 32 in 1994 left a legacy that continues to this day.

In this entertaining lightning talk, former comedy producer Ian Fenn will demonstrate what UX designers can learn from Bill’s approach, beginning with his much-revered honesty.

The talk will unite UX professionals in laughter but also encourage them to look to other creative and skilled disciplines for inspiration. At its heart, the talk will impart key guiding principles that should serve them well throughout their work.

Parental guidance is advised.
