new directions

I’m thrilled to announce that this month I began working at The Grove Consultants International (a.k.a. the mothership of visual practice as I know it)! It was one of those moments when a number of different things seem to converge suddenly and then wham! You’re facing in a new direction, seeing new roads in front […]

visiting Adobe

I have to start this off with a little disclaimer: I’m an Adobe fan-girl from way back. I mean way back. Like before Photoshop had layers. Adobe’s apps are robust, capable, flexible, and not buggy. I’m proud of the work I’ve done with them, and like Kathy Sierra says, to turn users into passionate fans, […]

remembering Point Lobos

At the NMC Summer Conference this year, Larry Johnson, Alan Levine and I tried something different: we actually attended a preconference session. Crazy, I know! It was a photography workshop led by Bill Frakes (Sports Illustrated) and Don Henderson (Apple), with Bill Hanson (Apple). The session was planned and organized by Larry and the three […]

shorten those URLs, please

<rant> It’s so handy the way blogging software just creates a unique URL for you. You don’t have to lift a finger! But I’m here with a plea to all bloggers to take a moment, when you post, to create shorter URLs. I’m prompted to make this plea because at the moment I’m working on […]

I <3 Prezi

Keynotes. The final frontier. These are the voyages of the ed tech speaker. Her continuing mission: to explore strange new presentation tools; to seek out new ways to keep her audiences awake; to boldly go where no PowerPoint has gone before. I just finished putting together the presentation on the 2009 Horizon Report that I […]

the great email move

As some are aware from my ecstatic tweeting on the topic, I have switched this week from my PC laptop to a new MacBook Pro as my primary work machine. It’s been about five years since I used a Macintosh as my primary machine and I am, well, falling in love all over again. I […]

why is it so hard to write your own bio?

I’m at it again: updating the bio. I know I do a lot of work. I know a lot of it is interesting and exciting and fun (to me, anyway). So why the heck is it so hard to write it down? Even armed with tips from my colleague Jared Bendis, whose bio-writing skills awe […]

that’s ten minutes I’ll never get back

Disclaimer: I’ve only spent about ten minutes using it so far, so this review is (a) uninformed and (b) very, very subjective. Let’s talk about LinkedIn. I’ve been meaning to get, er, linked in for a while now, but only actually did it this morning after reading Alan’s very appropriately titled post on the topic. […]

there are more things in heaven and earth

I’m deep in research and writing for the Horizon Report, and I am, as always, humbled and amazed by the sheer quantity of stuff that there is in the world, and the sheer number of other people who know a lot about any given bit of it. There are 12 topics on the Short List, […]
