I’m speaking @ the Dallas Digital Summit tomorrow

December 3, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Tomorrow I will be speaking at the Dallas Digital Summit in the User Experience & Design track @ 4:10.



I’ll be speaking about Lean UX (and related topics) – dubbed: Fail Fast, Learn Fast, Move Fast: My UX journey to move faster. I’ll post my slides right after the talk (because you know I’ll be editing them until I’m on stage ;-)

The tickets are currently sold out, but if you’re there be sure to say hello! And if you’re not, you can follow along #DDSum12.

LTE made me do it…

December 1, 2012 at 10:17 pm

I was wondering if LTE on the iPhone 5 would change my mobile internet consumption habits. Here in the Dallas area I’ve seen speeds that just about equal my Verizon Fios service. And the below was without Facetime being enabled (still hoping it will come to grandfathered plans!).

I’m wondering what has changed? I can view more, faster? Not as timid about watching streaming videos on the go? Whatever it is, I’d be surprised as iPhone 5 usage goes up, the LTE network doesn’t start to drag. Guess we’ll see how it fares in Austin during SXSW next year :-)

Game On! Gamification @ Big Design 2011

Game On Blog Post

I’m a little behind on this, but it’s always interesting to look back. In 2011 I gave a talk to a couple local groups and at the Big Design Conference on Gamification. We were hot off the heals of SXSW, where we had a great many talks, startups, and guests from the gaming world. But after more than a year, it’s still gaining ground, and we’ve yet to see the hockey stick growth in adoption – but I think it’s still coming.

I’m thinking this should be my new profile pic…

It captures my love of legos. And my hair.

Thanks @JuleeDyer!

Europe – planes, trains, and no automobiles

August 15, 2012 at 10:00 am

I was recently able to spend three weeks in Europe – two weeks working in London, and one week traveling to Brussels and Amsterdam. I haven’t had a lot of long work engagements outside the states, but it really helps get a more global view, and in my case, getting some insights around our international audience.

Going back to travel

May 2, 2012 at 9:28 am

When starting at GameStop towards the end of 2010 I posted about all the reasons I was interested in getting into gaming – and while being in the middle of it all at GameStop has been fun, I’ve decided to go back to my first love… Travel.

Will Fragmented Content Experiences Change your Home?

April 13, 2012 at 11:30 am

When you think about how people were entertained in their homes in the past, they would usually crowd around a radio or TV – which would be located at some central point in the home. Recently this has changed – with powerful, smaller, connected devices we’re able to fragment this experience. You have a home where everyone is on a different shared device, being more selective about the content they’re consuming – video, websites, games – all up to the individual, but still connected to their circles of family and friends.

Sound knowledgeable about moving your iOS app to Android in around 10 minutes

April 1, 2012 at 11:33 pm

As Android gains ground, iOS may not be enough for some brands. And with limited budgets and development constraints, sometimes you can’t give your app the full “Android Treatment” it should deserve. I’ve put together a mini guide to go over some common ways to get your iOS app over to Android, while keeping it consistent (mostly) with today’s Android patterns.

I think AT&T is trying to break up with me

February 17, 2012 at 5:45 am

A good number of people I know have gotten “the text message”. You know, the one that tells you – “Hey you, quit hogging all the bandwidth, why don’t you use more Wi-Fi and stay out of my yard”. Yes, I love to be told by a company that I’m using their services, which I pay for, so much I need to be punished.
