Hi! Tonight’s panel was fun and went about as well as I expected. I think it was useful for those who attended. Please post a comment if you were there! What’d you think?
Of course, I was as scatter-brained as ever. It became clear, as soon as I opened my mouth, that not having worked on design projects for last couple months was seriously screwing with my ability to focus on the questions as hand.
It was also a bit scary to hear how process-focused the other two panel members were (they were from TiVo and Oracle)…scary because I’m a guy who really likes having a process to follow and I’ve been completely lackadaisical about that lately. I’m now determined to get our group’s processes published and followed for every project.
Here is an updated version of the BayCHI Mentor Panel Poster I put together [pdf, ~330k]. It lists some good books and web sites for you to check out.
