Strengthening the connections
Usually, I take time off for the end-of-year holidays. Not this year. Besides client work, I’m also busy preparing the classes I’ll start teaching soon at CCA.
In addition to the systems studio class I taught last spring, I’ll also be co-teaching a prototyping studio to the same cohort. For the students, it’ll be an excellent opportunity to put into practice the theory they’ll pick up in the systems class. It’ll also be a lot of fun for me since we’ll be messing around with Arduino, sensors, projection mapping, and a host of other fun technologies.
In addition to teaching, I have several other things in progress. I’m preparing a keynote for World IA Day Switzerland in February, a couple of new workshops and presentations, new blog posts, and other cool projects that aren’t quite ready to see the light yet. 2019 is lining up to be another busy year!
My career thus far has given me the opportunity to pursue various things that have interested me. Sometimes these interests have been rather disparate, the connections between them tenuous. But as Charles Eames said, “Eventually everything connects — people, objects, ideas. The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se.”
My goal for next year is to strengthen the connections, including the connections with the people in my life. That, of course, includes you. Thank you for allowing me in your inbox. I wish you the very best for next year and look forward to continuing to share with you in this information environment.
