I am delighted to announce that, as of Monday, June 30, I will be free.

Free to leave the house every day of the week, all day, if I wish. Free to commute, perhaps to a co-working space that I have yet to choose. Free to work at the Harold Washington Library in the city for the day if I darn well feel like it. Free to find a rooftop bar for the afternoon.

You see, I finally got motivated (and a little chided by Jessi) to find a dedicated dog walk/play/sitting service that can help with them during the week. I no longer need to get home every day by at least 1 or 2pm to take care of them. They start Monday.

To my friends and local peers: bring on your occasional lunch engagements, your spontaneous evening shenanigans, and your meet ‘n greets. Oh, and your co-op recommendations too.

My schedule, as they say, is open.

Why ‘Intuitive’ Interface Is A Myth

http://www.fastcodesign.com/1672172/why-intuitive-interface-is-a-myth

Old piece, but good food for thought.

Think about it: all of Apple’s original iPhone ads were basically instructional videos. That wasn’t an accident. No one knew what pinch-to-zoom meant or had the inclination to try it until Apple showed us.

Just like no one knew how to use a mouse until they were taught.

But you *can* lay a foundation, a framework. Teach people a few touch gestures, make sure your community is on board. *Then* it becomes natural to try new gestures like tap-and-hold just to see what happens.
