Blatent Self Promotion

Couple of items of self-agrandizement:

My wife and I will be teaching a workshop at ENSCI (site in French, in English), a leading industrial design school in Paris, at the beginning of next week. We’ll spend an intensive 2 days with students there teaching them about how design is done on the west coast of the US, which hopefully will be interesting and fun for them. Things like user research, personas, and structured brainstorming are not really taught in France, so it will be interesting to see what their reactions are. I know, tough work, but someone’s got to do it.

Second, frog design has launched a blog, and myself along with about a dozen other frogs will be contributing to it. We’re excited about it, and have been wanting to do it for a while and it’s finally happening. There’s a really interesting mix of people who will be writing on it, so it will be well worth checking out. With luck my posting there won’t affect the blistering pace with which I post here…
