IA: I have become the poster child for bringing the body back into work. It’s really important. I’ve had a sta nding desk for years and I’m also a proponent of walking meetings, because there is a strong correla- tion between cognition and movement. We’re more creative when we move. When my desig ners are presenting mockups here at Udacity, we could just project the screens on the wall and sit around and talk about them. Instead, we tape printouts of the screens on the wall, and ask everyone to stand up and come look at them. When people are more actively engaged, when they get their body involved, it sparks a different kind of brain activity. A lot of research has shown that you build rela- tionships differently with someone you’re walking with than with someone you’re sitting beside in a conference room, particularly if you’re both looking at a screen. Out walking, you’re exploring the world together, encountering new experiences together. I’ve worked in some walking wastelands in Silicon Valley—no sidewalk, no scenery—so sometimes we would just do some laps around a local department store to get the blood moving. RF: Both of you have children. There has been lots of discussion about whether children spend too much time looking at screens and engaging in social media in unhealthy ways. What are your thoughts? AB: I don’t think having a good childhood a nd spending time on screens is mutually exclusive. I spent a fair amount of time on screens as a child, and for the most part I think I turned out okay. Parents have always needed to take a strong interest in what their children are doing, and the same applies here. If their digital world is a strange black box to you, you can’t be very helpful.
