Design Management Institute

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.

TakeTransit Trip Planner

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.

New category: Palo Alto Sightings

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.

One Media back online

Well, it appears the magazine, “One – Design Matters,” is still defunct (I’ll see if Selena can get the inside scoop for me), but after a long hiatus, the One Media website is back online.

Check it out for some tasty design goodness!

Oh – as a result of this find, I updated this post.
