David Pogue, the Yahoo Tech commentator, PBS NOVA host, and prolific tech author, brought me in to whiteboard his review of the latest version of Photoshop for a video on Yahoo Tech.
We had a great time making this. Hope you enjoy it!
And for those curious about David, he’s great to work with. Funny, relaxed, but focused on doing great work. Thanks to David and his awesome Yahoo Tech video team for tapping me for this project!

It was an honor to support the NYC portion of NASA’s International Space Apps Challenge hackathon. Here are some pics of the event and my visual capture of the final project pitches.

I’m looking forward to being back at NASA’s Space Apps Challenge, where people pitch in to create better ways of doing stuff in space and on earth, hackathon style. I’ll be turning the final project pitches into full color illustrated murals in real time.
The Space Apps Challenge is very special, and and all the more so in NYC, which will be the media center for the global event which unfolds in cities on every continent the weekend of April 12-13. The Space Apps Challenge is open to all, from hardcore engineers to kids. It is free, and based on my experience last year, it brings out the best in the funny species which we belong to. To learn more and register, visit the Space Apps site.
Had a great time leading this workshop along with Jonas Milder at University of the Arts in Philadelphia for Sophomore Industrial Design students. Great enthusiasm, observations, and externalized thought from our participants. The students have been observing documenting people’s routines in everyday settings. In the process, students have identified unmet needs. Now they are going to start designing and fabricating things to address those unmet needs. Can’t wait to see what they come up with!
