Daniel Steinberg: A Time Lapse Look at Swift

In this very entertaining talk, Daniel Steinberg reflects on Swift’s first two years and how the community reacted to it. The main takeaway for me is that we as a community would do well to strive for less drama and take more time to pause, reflect, and empathize. (Duh!)

I love the pacing of this talk. Daniel controls the audience’s reaction through well-timed pauses and slide transitions. Saying nothing can be way more powerful than repeating what’s already on your slides.
