The last few months have been particularly busy and, now that Interaction 11 is over with, I finally have a small chance to note what has been going on.
- Taught a semester-long module in service design on the MFA Interaction Design course at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, along with my lovely co-teacher Phi Hong Ha
- Still on the teaching theme, begun what is still an ongoing relationship as thesis advisor to two of those students, Katie Koch and Mike Katayama, both of whom will graduate later this year
- Wrote another article for Interactions magazine, on the whole solitude meme
- Gave an interview on the same topic to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s “Sparks” radio program that was broadcast in February of this year
- Ran a workshop in Toronto, replaced a passport in Ottawa, went back to Ottawa to get another visa (there’s a Canadian theme emerging here)
- Covered Kicker’s wonderful Device Design Day for Core77
- Helped to organise and run the aforementioned just wrapped Interaction 11
…and finally, I also – most recently of all – made a very happy jump to land at Method in San Francisco as a director of user experience.
