Between the stock market roller coaster, BART's brush with the first amendment, and the nine Cooper proposals in the SXSW panel picker, we had a pretty busy week.

  • Kendra led a vibrant session of our Visual Interface Design session Monday and Tuesday. Get your spot in September 13-16 Interaction Design session soon as seats are filling fast.
  • We held our first office hours with the teams at Rock Health.
  • It's always nice to receive a mention in an app review; our work with TaskRabbit on their app moved someone to compliment the UI on iPhone app reviews "It's very rare that a user interface actually impresses me, but the TaskRabbit iPhone app managed to do just that."

Also interesting: Smashing Magazine's compilation of UI tools is a gold mine. Jeff Bezos has been busy designing airbags for phones. And, inspiration for anyone who likes Magnum PI, sandwiches and waterfalls.

Finally, we bid a fond farewell to our amazing interns, Mo and Brendan, as they return for the final sessions of their masters programs at the IIT and Carnegie Mellon. You'll be seeing these guys around; they are 100% amazing! interns.png
