introducing digitalfacilitation.net

Back in February, my dear friend Fred Lakin gave me a delightful “job warming gift” to celebrate my new post at The Grove: he registered the domain digitalfacilitation.net in my name. Wasn’t that sweet? Then I was so busy settling in that I didn’t get it set up… until this week. Since I’m barely managing […]

iPad as a touchscreen interface for your computer

Yesterday, I did something really wild. My usual computer setup is my laptop with a larger external monitor as a second screen. Yesterday, I added a third monitor to my setup: my iPad. I dragged some application windows onto each of the three monitors. Whoa. I also set them up to mirror each other. Then […]

cleaning chart images in Photoshop

I get asked a lot how to clean up chart pictures in Photoshop, so this post is probably way overdue. I learned this process from David Sibbet and I’m just passing it along. There are lots of other ways to do this; this is just one method, and it happens to use Photoshop. Some of […]

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 […]

glad you asked!

I got a lovely email today from someone who found my visual notes. She had a few questions, and as I started to answer them, I thought, hey, this would make a good blog post, and maybe someone else has the same questions. Does it count as a frequently asked question if someone asks it […]

AirSketch with Zoom

AirSketch, the iPad drawing app that lets people open a page in their web browser to see what you’re drawing as you draw it, has added zoom to the app! This makes it easier to do fine lines and smaller writing. It’s still not perfect; the text is a little fuzzy, and it doesn’t seem […]

vote for my SXSW panel!

The inimitable Fred Lakin has proposed a panel for SXSW 2011 on “live visual blogging,” which is pretty much what it sounds like: live blogging, but with pictures. I’m one of the panelists, along with really amazing folks like David Sibbet (@davidsibbet), Sunni Brown (@sunnibrown), Dave Gray (@davegray), and of course Fred (@fredlakin, who needs […]

visual recording on the iPad, illustrated

This week I’ll be giving a talk at IFVP 2010 on visual recording with the iPad. While I was preparing my notes, I discovered how easy it is to make Quicktime movies of your notes with the Brushes app, so I made a little movie. Then I got carried away narrating it and adding in […]

auctioning my time

Allthis.com has a neat idea: you pick something you like to do, or something you want to sell, and you auction it through their website. The proceeds go to the cause, organization, or charity of your choice. There’s a tiny little listing fee, like a couple of dollars. You get to contribute something other than […]

visual notes on the iPad

Author’s note: I can’t help but be aware that this post rambles a bit. I have inserted handy headers in bold so that you can skip right down to the bits that interest you. Backstory I’m hanging out in YVR, waiting for my very delayed flight back to SFO, and reflecting on the whirlwind that […]
