Graphic Novel Settings

2007-09-16T09:42:28-08:00

Daniel Clowes, probably still my favorite comics artist, has begun a new story for The New York Times' Funny Pages, Titled Mister Wonderful (PDF). In reading the first installment, I realized the setting was none other than Gaylord's, quite possibly...



Get Satisfaction / Give Satisfaction

2007-09-15T20:44:22-08:00

Congrats to the Satisfaction team for the launch of their new service. (Lane Becker, whom I used to work with, toils there now.) The home page for Satisfaction (which in part looks like this:) I suspect might have been inspired...

The Ghost Map and the inevitability of cities

2006-12-04T22:23:06-08:00

Traveling through Chile and Peru while reading Steven Johnson's The Ghost Map gave me a perspective on the book I would not have gotten had I read it in my comfy confines of the San Francisco Bay Area. Quickly: the...



CHI's Interactions Magazine has turned into a travesty

2006-11-30T17:47:14-08:00

About 5? 6? months ago, I let my membership to ACM's SIGCHI lapse, pretty much for exactly the reasons Todd details in his recent post on the Adaptive Path site. Even though I had not attended a CHI conference since...



Super Quick Book Review - Erik Larson's Thunderstruck

2006-11-28T21:25:34-08:00

Like much of the North American reading population, I enjoyed Erik Larson's Devil in the White City, a book which deftly intertwined the design and development of the 1893 Chicago World's Columbian Exposition (focusing on Daniel Burnham's leadership) and the...



Cusco - The Ruins

2006-11-26T21:46:06-08:00

Somehow, I don't seem to know anyone who has ever been to Cusco. And, to be honest, before planning this trip, I'd never really thought of Cusco, and had no idea really what to expect. Stacy, being an archaeologist, knew...



Chile - Parque Nacional La Campana, and Olmué

2006-11-25T13:07:19-08:00

I realized a couple days before we left on our trip that Stacy and I had planned no outdoorsy excursion while we were in Chile -- though, from what I could tell reading the guidebooks, getting your outdoors on was...



More on Chile - Valparaiso and Viña del Mar

2006-11-25T12:39:52-08:00

When I last wrote, I mentioned we had just arrived in Viña del Mar, a city on the coast of Chile about 90 minutes drive from Santiago. Viña is a perfectly pleasant beach town, pretty much geared toward Chilean tourists...



You don't have our excuse...

2006-11-25T11:37:11-08:00

When Stacy and I planned our Chile and Peru trips, we figured we'd end with a couple days in Lima before returning to the States. We'd heard great things about Lima food, and we found a charming-looking "hostal" in Miraflores,...



Happy Thanksgiving from Cusco!

2006-11-23T14:33:23-08:00

(We actually ate this a couple days ago, but cuy seems about as analogous a "Thanksgiving food" as we will find in Cusco!)...



More from Chile...

2006-11-16T04:59:20-08:00

It's been a while since I've written about our travels in Chile. We're currently in Viña del Mar, a seaside town just north of the more famous Valparaiso. We're staying at the Hotel Monterilla as guests of its owner Jorge...



Adaptive Path's Newest Conference: MX - San Francisco!

2006-11-14T12:16:31-08:00

MX - San Francisco is Adaptive Path's newest event, subtitled "Managing Experience through Creative Leadership." We've set out to plan an event that serves the audience that has grown with Adaptive Path -- those who were practitioners 4-5 years...



Listening to Fernando Flores, Chilean Senator

2006-11-13T14:25:00-08:00

The final speaker of the first day at the Encounter I am attending in Santiago, Chile is Senator Fernando Flores. As that Wikipedia page demonstrates, Flores has been very active in cognition, philosophy, and even human-computer interaction. He has become...



Listen to the sound of my speaking voice...

2006-11-11T11:05:55-08:00

...introducing Day 2 from this most recent Adaptive Path's UX Week, as a podcast from IT Conversations. You can download the presentation deck (PDF). The podcast cuts me off, as I was also introducing Michael Bierut, but you'll see those...
