Thinking and making; your vision and theirs
"Feels like everyone I talk to at the moment working within the digital realm is concerned with the same thing in different forms. Some people want to ‘make things’ other people already count themselves as ‘makers’. Some people are ‘crafting’ and a few people out there admit to ‘hobbies’. Some people want to get into small scale ‘manufacture’. It all seems to’ve happened over the past few years, this need to produce something physical.

I’m starting to think what people are really after is some form of control over their own output."

Creation and consumption
"There's a pretty common argument in tech that though of course there are billions more smartphones than PCs, and will be many more still, smartphones are not really the next computing platform, just a computing platform, because smartphones (and the tablets that derive from them) are only used for consumption where PCs are used for creation. You might look at your smartphone a lot, but once you need to create, you'll go back to a PC.

There are two pretty basic problems with this line of thinking. First, the idea that you cannot create on a smartphone or tablet assumes both that the software on the new device doesn't change and that the nature of the work won't change. Neither are good assumptions. "

White Balance for Common Streetlights - Shutters in the Night
Streetlights are the driving force behind nighttime street scenes and how they make us feel. The way streetlights spread their light, the shadows they cast, and the colors they bring out affect everything else nearby, setting the tone of the scene.

Design with Intent Toolkit
"There's a huge opportunity for design for behaviour change to address social and environmental issues where people's behaviour is important, but as yet little in the way of a guide for designers and other stakeholders, bringing together knowledge and examples from different disciplines, and drawing parallels which can allow concepts to be usefully transposed."
