Mucking about in Stanford’s web space, you run across the most unexpected things. Today I found a site called Jonathan Korman – Designer, which is an interview of Jonathan, complete with video, done by Michael Thompson (who I assume is a student at Stanford).
Have I told you about my new found interest in Design Management? No? Well, I am now…
The Design Management Institute looks like a tasty source for information on the subject. The DMI Publications area has lots of downloadable articles and some are even free (most cost a small fee for non-members).
Are any brad lauster (dot com) readers members of the DMI? I’m thinking about joining, so I’d like to hear from you.
If you’re like me – a Bay-Arean without a car – you’ll dig the TakeTransit Trip Planner.
It seems to be broken a lot, but when it works, it’s pretty good. I used it last Friday to figure out how to get from Palo Alto to the Pittsburg/Bay Point BART station so I could meet some friends for a weekend of camping.
Thanks to Challis for letting me know that issue 5 of Loop. the AIGA Journal of Interaction Design Education in now online. Yay!
Tom Kelley, general manager of Ideo, whom I swear I saw riding a bike on Bryant St. in Palo Alto earlier this week, will appear on TechTV, in a spot called, “Innovate for a Better World“.
Broadcast times are available if you follow the link.
[ Note from April 2003: Found this post saved as a draft in Movable Type. Not sure why I never posted it before, so I’m doing it now. ]
Found via Instapundit: Happy Fun Pundit’s review of the “Consumer Broadband and Digital Television Promotion Act”
This is just awful! Please urge your representatives in congress to oppose this bill.
Read the letter I sent by clicking MORE.
The Stanford Report is running a short story about a decanting cradle designed for a 27 liter bottle of wine from the Charles Krug winery. There is also a short video of the students at work. Neat!

Now that I live in Palo Alto, I keep bumping into the sort of people I consider super stars, so I’ve decided to keep track of my encounters with my new “Palo Alto Sightings” category.
For example, a couple months ago I saw Alan Cooper while grocery shopping. Then, last week I saw Sue Cooper downtown. This morning I saw Nick Ragouzis (at least I think it was him, I didn’t have time to stop). And last but not least, I bumped into Steve Perlman this evening at a local sushi place.
The article is pretty weak, but the image at the beginning of the BBC’s “Web design ’causes confusion’” is great!
Of course, the solution to this problem is to hire an Information Architect. Duh!
