A visual record of things I heart.
Vuja De: Seeing things for the first time although they’ve been there all along. Also known as an awakening, “aha moment”, Helen Keller moment.
I love the idea of prescribing custom audio recognition to materials, in the way you imagine they should sound.
This is a good day…email for Swing HRD has been sent.
Designers are an odd lot: creative, moody, pensive, thoughtful, weird. But the one characteristic that separates designers from others is action. They make stuff that didn’t exist before. They take the idea living deep inside their head and pull it out, realizing it in a drawing, prototype, or product. Unlike most people, they don’t just think about it. They don’t just brainstorm. They don’t just imagine something better and then talk themselves out of it. Instead, they act.
They are, in the words of T.E. Lawrence, dreamers of day.
“All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds Awake to find that it was vanity; But the dreamers of day are dangerous men. That they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it possible.”
T. E. Lawrence (aka Lawrence of Arabia)
The iPad is an intensely personal device. In its design intent it is, truly, much more like a “big iPhone” than a “small laptop”. The iPad isn’t something you pass around. It’s not really designed to be a “resource” that many people take advantage of. It’s designed to be owned, configured to your taste, invested in and curated.
First call with iPhone 4. Sigh.
