I am in the process of reviving an old hobby with a big bang. I used to play and run role playing games, especially of the sci-fi genre. After a decade of a hiatus, I’m back with an apetite. I’m in the process of writing my own game, the Edgerunner RPG and running alpha tests. Check it out.
I'm trying to set up a new Q&A site about Product design on StackExchange. StackExchange provides the infrastructure for community owned Q&A websites, and they ask for a number of people to start following it before they launch a topic site in earnest. I started the one for Product design. Now it is in need of a kick start. Why don't you come in and give it a push. Join and start following, contribute to the example questions, share it with fellow industrial designers so that we have a nice system to share our know how.
Since December 2009, I have been working together with Ms. İdil Tunga, an incredibly fast-learning young lady who is a veteran of Umeå like myself. Since she came in, she sprouted a deeply growing talent in sound design, and went through the task of designing sounds in two sizable projects all by herself. Two makes a team. Wow!
Going back to Umeå for the 20th anniversary of Designhögskolan to reconnect with friends and colleagues. I will be out of office between December 2-9 2009
Going to New Zealand to spend a week at the Victoria University of Wellington — School of Design and I will hopefully return with interesting news.
