Yesterday Detroit welcomed Molly Holzschlag as the inaugural of Rise + Design Detroit in the morning and to give a full talk at Refresh Detroit in the evening. Molly is considered one of the
grandfathers grandmother of the Web. Her talks centered around “From Documents to Apps: Evolving an Open Web”. As an advocate for open standards, she outlined how the open web allows for the empowerment of all individuals via global access. The archive should be up soon on the Refresh Detroit website.
She started her talk with a quote from Hillman Curtis that I am very fond of and wanted to share:
“Be prepared to reinvent yourself. Be prepared to go out on a limb occasionally, and be prepared to do the things that you feel strongly about”
