new year, new role, new blog


I have started anew and am now blogging over here....

Zero One


The Zero One festival is this week taking over San Jose. A Gallery Crawl happens on the 8th and all the museums and galleries are open with events and installations as part of the festival. The show my sister curated...

The fuss over tagging


Tagging seems to be as much of a "HOT" thing in the web world right now as Web 2.0. I know we are doing a lot of thinking about tagging here at work - especially in the context of nailing...



Reading Peterme's post about being without a tribe struck a nerve with me. I have been feeling like I am ungrounded lately. Several years ago it was super clear. Being very involved in getting Boxes and Arrows off the ground,...

On the nature of Identity


I have been thinking about Identity a lot lately. One of the things my team thinks about in relation to the Yahoo! Network is identity and how a person is represented across the websites. It got me thinking back to...



I have been so slack. I thought when I revived this site that I would have things to say but I am sooo busy at work it is hard to sustain the interest after hours. I am however hiring -...

Josef Muller Brockmann


This great flash site of Josef Muller Brockman posters shares some of the highlights of a current gallery show in Dublin. Brockman is one of the great poster designers from the Swiss school of design....

Summit Interview


I forgot to mention that the folks at AOL interviewed me at the summit and you can get the podcast of it at iTunes. I talk about the Yahoo! Network Map that we had in the poster sessions and the...

Recovering from the Summit


Got back from the IA Summit around 2am last night. A 4 hour flight delay. But I am jazzed. I had a great time and feel reinvigorated for what I do and for all the cool work. All my pics...

eTech this week


Bill Scott - who works with me at Yahoo! on the Pattern Library inititatives - represented Yahoo! at eTech this week and gave the Yahoo! keynote. From what I hear, he gave a great talk that really drove home...

IA Summit


I will be attending the IA Summit at the end of this month - this will be my 5th one. BranchLogic and my team at Yahoo! collaborated on a project last year that will be presented in the Poster sessions....

Yahoo! Interaction Pattern Library


The reaction to the recently launched Yahoo! Pattern Library and the UI Code Library has been amazing. When we (Matt Leacock, Chanel Wheeler and myself) presented last year at the IA Summit we were asked by a lot of people...

Just Launched


So today we took a huge step to contributing to the collective knowledge base and released to the public (with Creative Commons license) our very own Pattern Library and UI Interface Code Library. We have worked really hard to take...

Resurrected from the deep


I have decided to bring Design Writings back. Since I am no longer editing Boxes and Arrows, I thought I might occassionally have something to say. So here I am, back in the world and hope that folks find their...

DesignWritings Retirement?


As I am sure you have noticed by now, I am not keeping DesignWritings up very well lately. My photographic life, my job and Boxes and Arrows, as well as some recent health issues, have left me little time to...
