Eluvium, Information Architecture, Teaching, and a lot more…

interaction design

The last few weeks have been pretty intense for me. My wife and I have been doing a ton of work on our house (painting, new carpet, finishing some renovation projects, etc), which always takes a lot of time.

I’ve been lucky enough to work on a new project for i33, doing information architecture work for a big global company, which is intense, exciting and challenging. Nothing like making calls to Japan and Belgium in the same day! It’s good to be engaged in that work again.

On top of all that, I’ve been teaching a week-long class at Wayne County Community College District, using the Lego Mindstorm NXTs to teach basic engineering and robotics concepts to 1st through 4th graders. It’s been a fun week so far, but I can see why I prefer the middle school and high school levels – the little kids can really be a challenge sometimes!

I’m listening to Eluvium’s “Talk amongst the trees” as I write this, and it’s perfect fuzzy, warm music to have on in the background. Back to the information architecture work!
