Weekly inspiration – 7th July 2006
Here are some of the things we’ve paid attention to this week:
If you haven’t seen Sir Ken Robinson’s speech at TED about creativity in education, you should. This is probably the most inspiring thing I’ve seen and heard in a very long time – and it got me thinking about applying for being present at TED 2008 (well, considering TED 2007 has sold out already). Seriously, go watch the video.
Donna Maurer has an eye-opening post on “Things you should know before working with me“. Hear, hear – couldn’t have said it better myself.
Dan Saffer, senior interaction designer at Adaptive Path has a book coming out in the beginning of August called “Designing for Interaction“. Pay attention to this one if you work in the field. And speaking of Adaptive Path, their User Experience Week is going to be in Washington from the 14th to the 17th August, and I sure as hell wish I could be there.
User Experience Design (the blog) has a great post about Day in the Life scenarios with a series of interview questions to ask in evaluating use of an application – this is something we’ll be doing for the products we’re about to launch (particularly GoPlan).
