2 Years of Marriage
May marks the two year mark of Meg's and my marriage. Last year we celebrated in Asheville, North Carolina, one of our favorite places on earth. Where will we go this year?
Meg's brother, my brother-in-law, is getting married in Houston, so we'll be back in Texas for a few days to celebrate.
Megan and are going to Wales for The Do Lectures. You should come too!
3 Years in Cincy
July marks 3 years living in the Queen City. Frankly, a city I never expected to live in, but that has proved to be a wonderful place to call home.
I am teaching a course on user centered design at the University of Cincinnati (DAAP) starting in August and ending in December. I look forward to teaching again. In particular, I'm interested in exploring the differences between empathy and compassion as it relates to the user centered design process. Empathy has become quite the buzz word, but I'm learning compassion is a more powerful and appropriate ambition.
It's that time again. The weather is cooler, the leaves are begin to change, and the sweet sweet smell of camp fire fills the air.
Still not a big fan.
Try to embrace it this year. Time to buy some boots and gloves.
Somewhere between Christmas and New Year's is my birthday.
