Dan Rather Lecture at UT

Last week, I attended the Liz Carpenter lecture at University of Texas, Austin, with Dan Rather. It was a delightful, informative, and humbling evening. Check it out below:

Hi! I’m Sam Kapila. I’m a designer and educator living in Austin, TX. I write and speak about Responsive Web Design, Diversity and Inclusion in Tech, and design research and process.

I’m currently the Director of Academic Operations and Diversity at The Iron Yard and looking for opportunities starting October 2017. I’m the Tech Ladies City Organizer for Austin. I’m a former contributor to a monthly column for net magazine print and online, and share my thoughts on the web in the documentary, What Comes Next Is The Future.

I make a lot of playlists and travel a lot. I cook and dine out and photograph it all. I grew up on the Dutch island of Curaçao, and lived in India, Florida, Greece, and South Carolina.
