“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

Today Johnny Holland says Goodbye and I am sad & grateful

Today Johnny Holland, the amazing Interaction Design online magazine says goodbye.

This news makes me feel both sad and grateful. Johnny Holland (JH) has been a rare place that allowed me to include my voice where other magazines rejected the types of topics I was interested in discussing: esoteric, foundational, semantic, über-theoretical, etc. As a multi-contributor (I lost count) I got to work with two amazing souls, Vicky and Jeroen. Their guidance, patience and care as editors and publishers was astounding. They were passionate, caring, determined and focused when it came to JH and I have the utmost respect for the community of writers they built.

Then there are the over 150 Johnnies out there and all of our readers. You have constantly challenged me, inspired me, and taught me and this community will need to find a new outlet for our energies and passions.

Johnny, I understand that your time has come, but I don’t have to be happy about it.

I know that I will miss JohnnyHolland.org very much and I am very sorry to see her go.

Thanx for the memories! (cognitive sparks, and emotional spikes).
