This was a talk I gave at Bennington College that introduced to the faculty and student body who I was and what made me tick. In it, I talk a little about some of my recent work, as well as introduce the Insight-Decision-Action design model as it applied to interface design, as well as more general domains...like life.
Seeing how I was one of the very first fellows in a very new (and at the time) relatively undefined CAPA initiative, the very first Q&A question I got, and from a student, was "So what the hell is a CAPA Fellow and what are you doing here?" Totally unprepared and on the spot, I scanned the room and made eye contact with Liz Coleman, who introduced me and was sitting off to the side in the audience. She simply stared at me, with nary a cue. Caught completely off guard, my unprepared response to this loaded question was, "Well, we'll see." And that was that.
