“Innovation has nothing to do with how many R&D dollars you have. When Apple came up with the Mac, IBM was spending at least 100 times more on R&D. It's not about money. It's about the people you have, how you're led, and how much you get it.” - Steve Jobs

Interaction 10 – we owe our debt to SCAD Conferencing

February always comes in like a rocket and leaves even more quickly even on leap years (yes, I know this is not a leap year). For me coming into this February was one of the most crazy of my life (just ask my wife). Being on the ground planning a ...

Leadership is about learning, so much more than teaching

IxDA has been an honor for me to be a leader of since the very first moment I joined the Yahoo group August 2003. It has always been about learning. Whether it was learning about group building from Challis Hodge, speaking from Robert Reimann, teaching from Jared Spool, leading from ...

Interaction — The IxDA Conferences … Maturing 08 > 10

(I started this post over 3 months ago and finished it today. Sorry if it feels a tad disjointed, but I still like it. Hopefully you will gain some inspiration and motivation by it.)

Meet up in Oslo, Norway

So it seems, after the workshop I'm giving in Oslo tomorrow there is going to be a meetup of UXNet folks. The event announcement is in Norwegian, so I'm assuming that I'm the celebrity and not the cuisine. Link to the event. Please RSVP

couple of more From Business to Buttons vids of note

Hi folks, From Business to Buttons is over. It was a GREAT conference. I loved being with a collection of mostly senior level designers predominantly from Northern Europe (especially Sweden). I loved getting a chance to spend some time with amazing American speakers on what felt like a retreat instead of ...

It's ...

What? You aren’t going to “From Business to Buttons”?

Do you live/work in Europe (North America, the Middle East, Asia, Africa or Latin America)? Are you involved in the world of products or services that involve electronics, software or web sites? Do you manage these products, design these products, or otherwise help define what it is they'd do? Then you have to ...

So today I went to http://businesstobuttons.com/ and finally saw the new updated site for this year's conference. There are a few European conferences that year after year get a special mix of presenters and workshop leaders and THIS one always had my attention. More than Shift or Lift, I have ...

I had the honor of having an email interview with the brilliant Will Evans of Semantic Foundry. The fine folks over at JohnnyHolland.org published the interview for us.

My Google Story from Interaction15 Week

Storytelling and Interaction Design – Talk

Here is the talk I gave at From Business to Buttons 2014 this month in Stockholm. It was a wonderfully produced day-long event that left everyone begging for more. This talk is about how Storytelling as a framework for Interaction Design can be very useful not just in explaining design, ...

Re-looking at T-types and collaboration in UX

Rethinking my T-type (maybe even my I-type) against the commodity, firmness, desirability framework ala Vitruvius. I’m pretty much focused on commodity, utility or usefulness. This doesn't mean I don't understand the greater whole that the triumvirate express together so well. It means that my self-admitted mindset and bias focuses my attention ...

Why I create stories as an interaction designer

1. I play act in my mind, in my sketches, in my physical play possibilities where structure doesn't only map against the frame of narrative, but the framework for how we process experiences. 2. The written words and pictures are crafted artifacts from which to evaluate realism of personas (characters); contexts (setting), ...

Thoughts on code, programming, design, production, development, technology and Oh! Design

I apologize for throwing this 4000 word essay out there like this. I thought and thought and just didn't know where else to put it. I hope someone enjoys it. Yesterday a very respected colleague, who I also call friend (not in that Facebook way, but in that pre-Internet kinda-way), wrote ...
