I sold my beloved 17” MacBook Pro today. She was a gem—beautiful matte screen, smoking fast Intel X25 SSD, and a second hard drive in the optical bay. The man who bought it will no doubt love it as much … Continue reading

60 days of Keynote Kung-Fu

The last 60 days have been a dream. I launched Keynote Kung-Fu with hopes of selling a few copies of my toolkit. I fully expected the splash that it made at the Big Design 2010 conference to come and go. Continue reading

Introducing Trailhead

Welcome to an experiment. My compadre Steve Brewer and I have a long record of designing and building cool things…for other people. So, three weeks ago we said goodnight to our nights and weekends and started building. Trailhead is a … Continue reading

Have your cake and eat it too

I don’t need all the functionality provide by Visual Studio and other Microsoft developer tools. So why deal with all the overhead (and remembering to alt-tab instead of cmd-tab)? Continue reading Outtakes

After weeks of late nights sitting at my computer in the dark, the new finally launched. I have to admit – I was (and am) extremely nervous to touch Blinksale.

Get some Viewzi

If you asked me six months ago what I thought was wrong with search and how could it be improved, I probably would have given you a blank stare.

That was until I met Brandon and the gang at Viewzi. It only took one demo to convince me that they were on to something really special. So, I left my comfy corporate gig in December and joined the team. Continue reading

Becoming A Design Vigilante

At this year’s SXSW, Jason and Rob led a great panel on finding and maintaining inspiration in everyday life. Citing Kevin Cornell, they suggested becoming a design vigilante. “If you love design, take it back!” This idea really resonated with … Continue reading

Moving on…

I suppose it’s the end of an era. Last month I made the difficult decision to leave my position as lead (and only) designer at RadioTime. Despite the building momentum at CES and opportunities to work with companies like Cisco … Continue reading
