I, like many of you, was dismayed to wake up and discover that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee. Instead of snarking about it, I'm committing to volunteer and stop him from ever coming near the office of the presidency.

This morning, the American people woke up to discover that a racist, xenophobic, misogynist is the presumptive nominee o…

Hey fans of #StarWars. The scheduled day is fast coming up upon us, but the bad news is that we have not sold the minimum number of tickets! This is an awesome workshop that was sold out in Stockholm and raved about in London, and we’d really like to see it happen here in San Francisco.

We’re making one last big push to try and get the word out, and you can help. Can you share, +1, email, or text friends, nerds, and designers you know who you think might be interested, or who you think would have as great a time as you? Feel free to share the following URL with them.

May the force be with us to bring Redesigning Star Wars to SF on 18 SEP! Please share, as 9 SEP is the do-or-die.

Star Wars was originally released in 1977, long before audiences had the daily deep engagement with computers that we have today, and long before interaction design was its own profession. What was...

The stock market tumble could (and should) call into question the rise of multibillion dollar valuations of private companies.

Alan Rickman is undoubtedly one of the greatest actors I will ever work with. He is also, one of the loyalest and most supportive people I've ever met in the film industry. He was so encouraging of me both on set and in the years post-Potter. I'm pretty sure he came and saw everything I ever did on stage both in London and New York. He didn't have to do that. I know other people who've been friends with him for much much longer than I have and they all say "if you call Alan, it doesn't matter where in the world he is or how busy he is with what he's doing, he'll get back to you within a day".

People create perceptions of actors based on the parts they played so it might surprise some people to learn that contrary to some of the sterner(or downright scary) characters he played, Alan was extremely kind, generous, self-deprecating and funny. And certain things obviously became even funnier when delivered in his unmistakable double-bass.

As an actor he was one of the first of the adults on Potter to treat me like a peer rather than a child. Working with him at such a formative age was incredibly important and I will carry the lessons he taught me for the rest of my life and career. Film sets and theatre stages are all far poorer for the loss of this great actor and man.

How ‘Privilege’ Became a Provocation http://nyti.ms/1K40Ncu
Invoking the word is an acknowledgment of racial and social advantages. But it is also seen as an epithet used to shame.
