The big idea from the Nudgestock 2018 conference was to make small changes for big effects.
There were nine speakers, but a few more were referenced so, I took notes on 13 total.
Here were my favorite parts:
- Caroline Webb uses behavioral economics on herself. This never occurred to me.
- Rory Sutherland noted why the replicability crisis/circus isn’t a problem, at least for him.
- Nicholas Christakis and Albert-László Barabási gave fascinating talks about networks, and how we interact. Barabási also shared the insight for why the Kevin Bacon game works.
- Mark Brooks talked about dating fast and slow.
- Steve Krug made me laugh. For context, his book is titled, “Don’t Make Me Think.”
- Tricia Wang talked about Nokia vs iPhone and big data vs thick data.
- Bent Flyvbjerg talked about megaprojects and the planning fallacy.
