I write and speak about the future of product design as a discipline, how to organize a team around design, and how we apply these ideas at Quora.
I’m also interested in games, the frameworks utilized by game design, the emerging world of competitive video games, and tournament design.
A few more scraps from other interests and pasts.
A touch more detail about me.
- I reside in San Jose, California with my lovely wife and son.
- I currently run the design team at Quora. Clients and past employers include The Colbert Report, EtherPad, Earwolf, Disqus, Sandwich Video, The City of New York, Photojojo, McSweeney’s, Fluther, and Mission Pie.
- Around 2010 I ran a studio with my friend Tag called Sleepover, focusing on boutique and experimental online publishing.
- One time I accidentally sparked a small subculture of people tweeting as Pokémon.
