Design Thinking and The Black Swan

Design thinking is about creating a narrative of activity, or of
modeling a behavior and designing solutions that will ensure the
expected or anticipated behavior. We typically find ourselves telling
a story of how someone experiences or interacts with a physical device
or service. Much of what design encompasses is narrative.

I have recently been reading The Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb
and the implications this has on design thinking is striking.

XBox 360: Project Natal. Reactions?

Just watched the Microsoft Press Conference at E3. Anyone have
thoughts on Project Natal?

I hope this extension of the XBox experience is affordable when it
hits the streets--the potential of gesture-based, motion/voice-sensing
play entering millions of homes worldwide is something to celebrate.

Reading group for Social Network theory?

Would anybody be interested in starting a reading group in the bay area on Social Networking theory? I've been reading a lot about it lately and would like to get some discussions going to better understand it....Lately I've reading Six Degrees by Duncan J. Watts.

I was thinking about starting something in either Berkeley or SF.
