Mediachest
One of my longstanding wishes has been for a personal lending library system. Not sure how well it works, but Mediachest, mentioned on BoingBoing today, is one of the first online efforts I've heard of. I'm curious to see how...

Always design a thing by considering it in its next larger context - a chair in a room, a room in a house, a house in an environment, an environment in a city plan. Eliel Saarinen...



Information Visualization as Artistic Practice
I wasn't able to take any of Golan Levin's classes this semester, as I'd originally hoped, but Jesse is. He points out the website for the class, which has a nice listing of information visualization projects. Jesse's project sounds illuminating...



Wiki Advice Wanted
I'm looking to install a wiki platform for use in classes. Can anyone make some recommendations? Ease of use, ease of installation, and visual presentation are probably the most important factors, though there are others I'm probably missing. Suggestions would...



NYT Magazine Article on Teen Blogging
After interviewing a number of first year undergrads about their use of IM and blogs last semester, this article definitely echoed some of the things I heard......



Happy New Year
Hey all, hope everyone has a happy new year. I'm in NYC right now through the 6th, then in Boston through the 10th - drop me an email if you're around and want to get together. I've got some stuff...



Tang!
Went to a lecture by John Tang on awareness and interactions. There's a short overview of his recent work here. Quite nice, really. Very much in line with the stuff I've been researching for my thesis. Other thesis news: next...



Sociable Media Group Weblog
Sociable Thinking is the new weblog from the crew in the Sociable Media Group at the MIT Media Lab. My friend Scott pointed me to it. I worked with Scott as well as Fernanda this summer, and they were gracious...



Spring Schedule
Some bright CMU student whipped together a webapp for visualizing class schedules, so here's what I'm signed up for in the spring. Scroll down and click on the links to read the course descriptions. Because I'll also be taking Thesis...



Quote
Good design means not leaving traces of the designer and not overworking the design. If you overdo the design it will touch the beholder's consciousness. I think that when people and things are within the boundaries of consciousness they are...



The Hub
Congrats to Molly on her launch of The Hub, which looks to be an excellent weblog and design resource guide! The weblog has some nice coverage of the conference right now, and it looks like Anne, Fabio, and Molly have...



Live Video from Ivrea Conference
If you like your interaction design theory pronounced with a healthy Italian accent, you might want to check out the video stream [windows media format] from the Symposium on Foundations of Interaction Design, being held at Ivrea today and tomorrow....



Kids Today
I just read a funny email off a distribution list for the school of Design. It's from an undergrad, and he's proposing a no-holds-barred Pictionary match between the Industrial Design and Communication Design majors. Ah, those crazy kids. As you'd...



In the Outback, Tracking the Elusive Concept
Concepts whose meaning, importance to my thesis, and previous usage and development across an array of disparate academic communities has vexed and perplexed over the last few weeks: Presence Social Presence Awareness Connection Intimacy Expression Self-Presentation Relationship Dealing with them...



Other CMU bloggers
Dan Saffer is doing a nice job writing about our program. Wish I'd done the same. His posts on what is an art and what is a product are key to understanding the way we think about Design (yes, big...
