I had to pause this newsletter for personal reasons and I missed it. Writing these notes became a reflection that calms me and helps me make sure I’m on track.

I could have pushed through to keep the consistency that went on for about 25 weeks. Still, even in my last post I felt my writing wasn’t as clear as I wanted.

To those who subscribed in the meantime, thank you and welcome!


This was on my mind last week, mostly regarding doctors and scientists. There is an evident need to simplify what is published in academic or research papers of any kind. Yet, the people I know who take the role of science communicators are themselves scientists who happen to have a knack for the task.

The same could be said about those who work with cutting edge technology.

If there is a path for others to become science communicators, it is one that may also face the difficulty of joining a very tight network where members all had to go through the same stages of learning and achievement.

On the other hand, there are some AI tools aimed at solving this problem and generating an expected and healthy skepticism by academics and scientist of all areas.

Your tools for this week

Keeping with the topic of simplification:

SciSpace Copilot, is a Chrome extension that gives you simple explanations for jargon, acronyms, and complex paragraphs. All you need to do is highlight them.

TextCraft AI: craft perfect emails with AI. Also a chrome extension.

ScribeHow, Auto-generate step-by-step guides, just by clicking record. Save your team 20+ hours/month vs. video and text tutorials.

Tango, Create stunning how-to guides and embed them directly into the browser for interactive walkthroughs.

UXLx Conference 21 TO 24 MAY 2024 in Lisbon

Communication and User Experience walk side by side. And I see we share the same tools and methods to make sense of who are our publics, how they think, and how to reach them better.

In that area, UXLx is the best conference in Europe, in my opinion. For a better idea on what to expect, here are the notes I took from previous editions.

The conference is organised by Bruno Figueiredo, partner at Xperienz Research and Design.

Bruno is known for is long career in UX and has an uncanny ability to make the conference happen without a glitch.
