a few observations

I just finished the second pair of weeks as part of the firm Tangible. Things have really started to pick up. In the last two weeks, I have put together 4 project proposals, met with 3 potential clients in person and 2 by phone. I have had lunches and coffees with a couple of developers and a couple of interaction designers and with my partners. I have spent hours on the phone and sending emails with my partners. I signed up for Yahoo!’s Hack Day. I gave a brown-bag talk in San Diego and today I received the contract from O’Reilly for our book.

It has been ages since I have felt so energized by my work and the profession of user experience design. I have so much to do, so many really cool opportunities in the works. I feel like a kid in the candy store who doesn’t know what to do first or where to focus. I start really working on my first design project next week. I have started writing the book…
