Microblogging

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

On occasion there’s something on my mind but it’s not quite worth the effort of crafting one of the perfect jewels of deathless prose that you, dear reader, are accustomed to finding on this here blog. In days past you would have been mercifully spared such ephemera. No longer. In the sidebar you can now peruse my twitter stream. One keystroke and something under a hundred and forty characters later, there it is. Of necessity more tightly phrased than this – and that’s the point. I like twittering, but I love reading my incoming feed.

Local knowledge

So – looking into the Design Creativity Workshop to be held at this year’s Design Computing and Cognition conference, I notice that the information is on the web page of my CCS colleague Yukari Nagai, who is also on the program committee. Her research into design creativity is of course all deeply relevant to me.

I am reminded that I’m surrounded at CCS by a fascinating group of researchers and practitioners. So since I have a lot of reading to do, I’ve decided to start at home.

Blogging, context and purpose

Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

There is no point, for me, in sitting down expressly to blog. Certainly there are things that I’ve been thinking about which I’d like to express, but I prefer to write illustratively. I need context and examples. Instead, I’m going to try blogging in context. The next action, therefore, is to do something. See you after that.
