Week in review

Friday, August 29th, 2008

Some weeks are bigger than others. This week was a big, eventful one with lots of stress, and lots of ego.


  • Appeared in Computerworld NZ (and was on the front cover of the print version)
  • Had an article published about Four essential skills for information architecture by User Interface Engineering
  • Reluctantly resigned from a client gig I’ve been working on for a few months
  • Finished writing my UI13 talk on Design Games
  • Finished a content inventory and web analytics report for a new project
  • Saw a sneak preview of Ruth‘s Web Directions presentation on incorporating accessibility into design (and it’s good)
  • Wrote two blog posts, both of them completely ego-centric
  • Downloaded way too much Culture Club from iTunes, then discovered that I scrobble my playlist to

I can haz beer now?

Workshops galore (with discount codes)

Oh no – looking at it like that – I think I need to go do some writing!
