My way homeBen

Mon, 26 May 2008 13:06:43 +0000

I started a new engagement today, which is nothing really new. But today for one reason or another I found myself much liking the way I went home. I found myself thinking, I wonder what all my friends think or see on their ways home. What do they see, what do they go past, what’s […](image)

Is User Centred Design only for software?Ben

Mon, 19 May 2008 14:08:49 +0000

I had a conversation today, which was I interesting and enlightening. We were talking about User Centred Design, and the person I was talking to, let’s call him “Bob”, was all fixated on how UCD was born from the IT age. I of course argued to the contrary and being an Industrial Designer (actual buttons […](image)

Bad designs, were they really all that bad?BenBarcamp presentation

Well today is the first Barcamp in Canberra and it’s shaping up to be a blast. To follow what’s happening at the event, you can follow on twitter by adding @barcampcanberra. At this event along side a gamut of much more fantastic presenters than I, have played my part and put together a little something […](image)

What the heck ever happened to the 90’s?Ben

Wed, 09 Apr 2008 06:10:08 +0000

I remember being a senior designer for a company (who shall remain unamed) with a friend of mine James Peek (sparkos.com) doing all sorts of design work but mainly for online sites. Back then, 100kb was considered big for a site, and even deal breaking if you were the Government. Nowadays, I’m willing to bet […](image)

Why isn’t Government adopting social software?Ben

Tue, 15 Jan 2008 12:54:44 +0000

Just quickly picking up on posts from two people who I hold in regard in the matter of social networking. From my perspective, which I’ll say right now has little to do with social networking applications, but more to do with enabling change to new concepts within the Federal Government… I both agree and disagree […](image)

Bloggin the personal stuff.BenWhere she used to livemy new pony

Sun, 02 Dec 2007 22:19:17 +0000

Well! I don’t normally post about my personal things, but this is a little something close to my heart. A few weeks ago I was visiting some friends and next door to them, was this little brumby pony, at best 12 hands high (or about shoulder height to the average human). Sadly, she had been […](image)

Design Authority – Part twoBenYour Design is AUTHORISED!!!

Enterprise Human Factors…001Ben

Tue, 13 Nov 2007 12:16:17 +0000

There’s a lot of talk I come across from some very very clever people in the UX, UCD, BA, WebTech spaces that revolves around doing user centred work. Including user centred work and themes during the software delivery lifecycle (SDLC) is a great thing. I’ve been involved in many key works doing exactly that, right […](image)
