the last quarter flew by — I was mostly working on finishing documentations of various projects (which you'll see below), and recovering from a busy summer.
I didn't have much time or brain-space for any serious side-projects. I noodled a bit more on the shape grammar stuff (putting a pin in it for now), and hacked together a MIDI CC looper for my Norns, so I can record and replay knob movements for more organically sounding modulations.
Also, I guess I'm on Mastodon now: @email@example.com
This quarter has been filled with a lot of Programmable Ink things:
Finally, I wrote a long article documenting my research into end-user-programmable UI-builder at Glide, which includes a live version of the prototype — go check it out. If you want to see it in action with additional commentary, I recorded a short informal demo in the last newsletter issue.
After four years at Ink&Switch, two of them as a Principal Investigator, I want to turn the dial from pure research, to more industry-oriented work.
My main interest lays in the space of no/low/future-of coding tools, and end-user programming. I believe that there's a ton of untapped potential in computing, and that a lot of it is limited by (broadly understood) interfaces.
I specialize in solving complex design problems, and approaching them from both engineering, and end-user perspectives. I know how to lead a team, and I'm most interested in an IC role — not looking to become a manager.
