💥 UpLevel and PowerUp with top Ux & Design tips, insights, actionables, inspiring talks, events & more 🖖 Curated by @jdallcaps

A lot has been happening in the last 2 weeks, as it always does everyday around the world. Bob Dylan won the Nobel for literature and set off celebrations and critiques. Author Hari Kunzru called it the “lamest Nobel win since they gave it to Obama for not being Bush”. However, Google seems to have got away with designing an iPhone impersonator. Interestingly the company also unveiled its VR cradle, “aimed at supporting its ‘Daydream’ layer for standardising VR across the Android ecosystem.”

From big announcements to little local things—
In a first, I gave Ux PowerUp (and its readers, you) a break last week. Partly because we were gearing to open up registrations for DesignUp - the 1st Design-For-Startups conference. And 5 days later, we are 76% sold out! I look forward to meeting many of you in mid-November. 
In the meantime, here’s the interesting and actionable from the last 2 weeks…
