Recently, I was invited to introduce the IxDA Dublin Redux for Interaction14. Needless to say 80 slides later, I was finding it hard to encapsulate the best bits of a fantastic conference into 5 minutes, so I did it in 10! I am getting rather used to compressing lots of content into lightning style talks which seems to work in the short attention span society.

Recently, I have become fascinated by the dynamics of the creative process, especially between people. A bi-product of the last few years with my involvement in Graphic Mint and on the IxDA Board has been the sheer about of interactions I have had with hundreds of people revolving around creativity.

I’ve started to open the box over at the Graphic Mind blog, where I just started writing a series of articles relating to effective creative collaboration. It all begins with my first part which is all about open communications

It was fun having to delve into the UX of eCommerce for my talk at NCI on Monday night. Findings from my research underlined the diversity of multiplatform eCommerce and mCommerce options available today.

UX can play a big part in solving many of the problems with selling online be it through helping customers discover the offering in the first place, improving clarity around the description of the benefits and functions of the product or service, and by making the check-out process easy.

Bay Area friends, congratulations on your new Bridge. Cool time-lapse of the new 6.4 Billion Dollar “Bay Bridge”. 6 years of progress in 4 minutes! I have always been very fond of the Bay Bridge. I miss living in the Bay Area when I see this.

Seamus.ws version 3 in Joomla 3 is now live, right here. It was a struggle but we made it. This is where things get interesting.

This is my first post on my new Seamus.ws portfolio website, or Seamus.ws II as I like to call it. So much has evolved with online publishing since my original Seamus.ws portfolio website that I built in Flash back in the early naughties.

I’m using two content management systems: the latest version of Joomla for the portfolio content and the latest version of WordPress, as my preferred choice for blogging. I intend to keep adding functionality, content and even branding as, afterall, we are in the age of the perpetual beta, which is indeed the point of this website – a living, on-going experiment.

I would love to hear your thoughts and feedback as this new chapter begins.
