Dan Gillmor has posted his often incoherent, but thoroughly interesting notes on New Paradigms in Using Computers day at IBM’s Almaden Research Center.
Several of the links in his notes are things I’ve previously linked to on brad lauster (dot com), but some of them are new.
One of the links (to Rich Gold’s web site) is pretty interesting, though his assessment that a designer’s primary concern is whether or not the thing is cool makes me think he (Gold) doesn’t have a clue about what designers do (despite his claim to be one).
It looks like Aza Raskin, Jef Raskin’s son, has put up a project on SourceForge called Jef Raskin’s Humane Environment.
I’m pretty sure this is the project Raskin demo’d at Stanford last year…I swear I wrote that up, but I can’t find it anywhere, so sorry, no link love for you.
[Update: 1:30 pm]
I just found this entry which is a review of Jef’s talk from BayCHI-East. I still can’t find my write up from this talk he gave at Stanford, last October. I’ll keep looking…
Hi again! Still moving forward with the re-design. Thanks for your comments!
This post is really just to try out the Trackback feature. This post should ping Christina, Joshua and the MT Trackback blog.
Here goes nothin’!
There’s nothing like redesigning your website out in the open, where everyone can see your mistakes as you make them.
Please bear with me as I get down to business.
Oh! And if you see something you like, let me know!
I had another “Palo Alto Sighting” yesterday. This time it was Sara Little Turnbull.
Sara, if you aren’t aware, is director of the Process of Change, Innovation and Design Laboratory at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business.
You can read more about her on the Corporate Design Foundation website.
