    handful of receipts 27 January 2006 Dan Leave a comment Final Thought 2005 While doing some end of the year archiving of old emails I was startled when I came across some from Jef Raskin one of the designers of the original Macintosh and author of The Humane Interface I was surprised because Jef died this February and although I was sad at the time I had sort of forgotten about it Although I never met Jef The Humane Interface was the first interaction design book I ever read and it changed the way I thought about computers Although I still don t agree with everything he said wrote he made me and many others believe that interfaces could be better that we can think differently about our relationship with the computer I still believe that and although Jef is now gone the work goes on See you in 2006 30 December 2005 Dan Leave a comment 9 11 Year Four If you ve forgotten what that day was like read the thread that was happening on Fark at the time Chilling even after the horror that was Hurricane Katrina Osama bin Laden is still at large and three thousand people remain dead and unavenged Remember My 9 11 Years One Two and Three Remembrances 11 September 2005 Dan 1 Comment What s Your Adjective When ABC anchorman Peter Jennings died this past weekend a ridiculous amount of obituaries and tributes New York Times Washington Post Financial Times AP CBS News and a host of others all used one word to describe him urbane Despite the obvious plagiarizing it s a good word and one that aptly described my favorite news anchor What cool word would you like to see in your obituary Mine s erudite 9 August 2005 Dan 4 Comments A Stranger in My Own City The last time I really lived in San Francisco was in 1988 when I was 18 Quite a bit has happened since then to both me and the city It s strangely familiar but more strange than familiar I remember the general areas of the city but not the street names or how to get there Some shops and restaurants I knew years ago are still here but in some cases entire blocks have literally vanished buried under new condos or malls As with anything new or renewed everything makes an impression sometimes false sometimes true I m hyperaware of things that long term residents probably don t even think about the numerous chains of grocery stores the amazing proliferation of yoga studios almost one per block or so it seems the staggering number of homeless on the streets the multicultural stew of a population the great food at even modest restaurants and the dogs dogs everywhere and welcomed We went to open a bank account today and even the bank had a dog bowl and doggie treats While I hate the disorientation and awkwardness that comes with not knowing where the

  • Does Marshall McLuhan Still Matter?
    filled with bad puns and quotes from Shakespeare and Joyce to prove his points He s not a fan of television and god knows what he would make of the web He saw electronic media as the end of civilization and of the printed word Satan is a great electrical engineer he noted And although he invented the term global village he certainly doesn t seem like he wants to live there In short I don t know what to make of his work He could simply be one of those seminal figures who turned a critical eye on something overlooked in his case television and went on to influence other critics Maybe he s the Velvet Underground or Big Star of media theorists Or maybe just maybe he was wrong about a lot of things Electronic media like what you are reading now hasn t destroyed the world or the printed word The global village Probably a good thing Television Awesome The most damning piece of evidence The Wikipedia articles around McLuhan do a better more concise job of explaining his theories than he does As for me I d rather watch TV Originally posted at Wednesday December 19 2007 Comments 6 Trackback 0 Previous Entry Awesome End of Year Conference Discounts If you want to see yours truly in the flesh talking about interaction design and the like here are some conferences you should register for and get a cheap rate Recent Entries This RSS Feed Has Changed Five Things I m Thinking About How to Program a Conference Why I ll Never Write Fiction Again 50 Before 50 Thoughts on my 40 Before 40 List Designing Devices Albums of the Year 2009 Top 25 Albums of The Decade 2000 2009 Designing for Interaction 2 Archives September 2010
