Path (my company!)
Most of the Time
American history around the time of the Revolution, figuring out how to marry top-down task-based information architecture processes with bottom-up document-based ones, finding a good dentist in
San Francisco Oakland
the user experience (interaction design, information architecture, user
research, etc.), cognitive science, ice cream, films and film theory,
girls, commuter bicycling, coffee, travel, theoretical physics for laypeople,
single malt scotch, fresh salmon nigiri, hanging out, comics formalism,
applied complexity theory, Krispy Kreme donuts.
to see where I wander.

My biz partner Janice's latest piece has been published, "Groundwork for Project Success." I love this piece, because I think the issues at hand here are among *the most important* in any design project, and are often woefully overlooked, as they're not typically considered "design." At Adaptive Path, we stress these early phases in our work, for the simple fact that if you don't get everyone on board from the outset, all the best design efforts in the world will very likely go for naught. These steps provide insurance for success. Because I hate it when designs I'm working on never see the light of day.
