I’ve been involved in online adventures since the mid-nineties, and I have managed a wide range of web sites, from ultra-secure financial networks to loud and colorful blues club sites. I am a project manager by trade, but enjoy the social implications of the Internet. Actually, more than just “enjoy the social implications of the Internet” – I think the Internet and associated technology is causing and/or enabling a hugely radical and positive shift in human communication, commerce, creativity, economics, education and personal fulfillment – and it’s a fascinating to be a part of it. In the past I had a recipe blog, but it was hacked and died and I’m still sad about it. Figuring out how to restore the backup is on my to-do list. I have a tumbler blog that I update with nature photos from my newish (Android) phone and silly haiku just because it’s so easy, and I am addicted to Pinterest. I have a real life too, the usual suburban mom (2 teenagers) stuff. My contributions to this blog will be a blend of my observations and ponderings as a ux project manager and someone fascinated by the Web and its impact on the world.

They claim that Pinterest owes its addictive nature to a combination of Design (simple and clean, image-heavy, hidden action buttons), Critical Mass (satisfaction of the urge to hoard images and […]
