There are few things more annoying than getting sick. That’s why this year I got my flu shot early, washed my hands like crazy, and mastered the art of the smile and nod when meeting new people. Just when I thought I was in the clear, I started to feel symptoms that something wasn’t right. After some internet sleuthing (and self-reflection), I realized I don’t have a cold or the flu…I have Bieber Fever. Bieber Fever has been around for years, but I thought I was immune. Plus, I’ve made Continue Reading

I spent my “Pi Day of the Century” in Austin, Texas at the South by Southwest® Interactive Festival.*  It was my first time speaking at SXSW — and my first time attending!  My talk was “Consumer Data: the Good, the Bad, the Not-So-Ugly.” The discussion started with defining what it means to be a designer. As a designer, we are advocates for the consumer and empathize deeply with them. It is our job to delicately balance the needs of the consumer, the needs of the business, and technical constraints, with Continue Reading

The Royals (E!): It may be terrible or it may be amazing. Either way, it’s the biggest dose of Elizabeth Hurley we’ve gotten since she played a robot that seduced Mike Myers in 1997. Monday, March Continue Reading

One of the greatest things about TiVo is it’s ability to pause a show to give you a glimpse of something you might have otherwise missed. It didn’t take long for show creators to start adding in Easter Eggs that only viewers with this magical ability would be able to find; but in the last few years, some have taken it a bit further. For years, whenever a character in a movie or TV show mentioned a phone number, they used the semi-fictional “555” telephone exchange (with a few, notable exceptions). But Continue Reading
