Check out the deck that Leslie and I presented at Intel’s “Be Social” conference last week. It’s a great deck that addresses some big principles that it’s important to remind yourself on while working with social design. At almost 25,000 views already it seems to have struck a chord with at least a few people. Check out more about it on the JESS3 blog.
It doesn’t have all the answers, but it’s a good list of questions to consider if you’re in this line of work.
A special thanks to everyone at Intel for such a great conference!
It’s already over 14,000 views in 6 days since it went live, and I’m proud of it. It’s always tough to tackle an abstract subject like encouraging better thinking about how to create interactive and shareable experiences online and through social platforms, and even more so when most of the audience speaks English as a second language. This presentation was extremely well received, and I hope to continue spreading these ideas into the future… starting now, with this embed! :)
As always – love to hear your feedback. Try me here: @supnah on Twitter.
Oh, what a cruel fate!!! Hilarious, and perhaps even tongue-in-cheek review of “Beastly” in the United in-flight magazine. Penny Arcade already said everything there is to say about the movie itself (I presume), but this just added another layer. Who on earth would want to live there??!?!!!
I’ll be heading to Bilbao to speak at the Nonick Conference next week. Jesse Thomas and I will be representing JESS3 and speaking about the importance of social objects and storytelling in successful social media strategies. Looking forward to jamon, pintxos and tinto.
I bet you keep saying to yourselves that you want to get in on that whole new Kickstarter trend where artists and makers of all types crowdsource the funding of their projects. Sometimes they’re projects that would never otherwise be made, but other times this becomes an investment/lending strategy that alleviates a lot of the pain for smaller and independent artists (like Matt the Electrician).
(1) : effective operation as measured by a comparison of production with cost (as in energy, time, and money)
(2) : the ratio of the useful energy delivered by a dynamic system to the energy supplied to it
Has modern efficiency created the capability to attain levels of perfectionism such that their attainment leads to more hours working than had we not been enabled by the efficiencies to begin with? And is attention to detail in a world of intricacies a new form of artisanship or just the new tediousness of production line work? Continue reading →
Walking around the fish market in Santa Caterina Market, Barcelona, Spain. The variety and availability of such fruits from the sea is impressive. It made me wish I had the time and the kitchen in town to buy some of these things to prepare, but such was not the case for this journey.
Go full screen and 720 HD for any amount of detail. The lighting is better after turning the first corner.
Just back from a couple of weeks in Spain, and here’s a Flickr set of some icons and icon-type thingies that I found during my travels. Some of them strike me as awesome, others as interesting, and still others as just weird. More info on them to come, but here are the pics…
