I’ve been reflecting on the inaugural Open Science Cafe. In case you missed it, Ali Albiani, a soon-to-be-graduate in art and design, developed an interactive event that featured Steve Duenes, graphics director at The New York Times: “How to use data and design to tell stories” on May 9, 2014. It was a big hit!

Open Science Cafe: “How to use data and design to tell stories” with Steve Duenes, graphics director at The New York Times
“When something is new to us, we treat it as an experience. We feel that our senses are awake and clear. We are alive.” —Jasper Johns
This quote reflects the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity I had leading Open Science Café on Friday, May 9th 2014: “How to use data and design to tell stories” with Steve Duenes, graphics director at The New York Times.
Even though May 9th is a while away, Ali and I are excited for the Open Science Cafe Event featuring New York Times Graphics Director, Steve Duenes. We are so excited that we have been working on some fun Vine videos in preparation for the event.
Ali Albiani describes herself as a left-handed graphic designer and adventurer who lives life to the fullest. She’s a senior studying Art+Design with a concentration in graphic design. Her passions include “incorporating design in combination with technology, science, startups, fine art and Spanish.” She’s also the leader of our first Open Science Cafe!
Some of the best ideas are born under pressure.
That’s certainly true with Cal Poly 24-hour Hackathon participants Jack Maize, Ali Albiani and Kevin DeBoer, who won an award for best library app. Jack, Ali and Kevin are the minds behind the app concept Fish Bowl, which allows users to reserve Kennedy Library’s fish bowls, the collaborative study rooms on the second floor.
