[Video Link to Al Jazeera report] Invisible Children's "Kony 2012" video has been viewed by millions online around the world. By view counts alone, it is now the most viral video in history. It is now the first ever YouTube hit publicly screened in the northern Ugandan town of Lira—and it didn't go so well. The screening was hosted by African Youth Initiative Network (AYINET), an NGO founded by Victor Ochen (LRA abductee turned peacekeeper) menti...

I love President Obama. I do. And when his administration defied the FDA on emergency contraception, I tried to figure out how it might have a been a reasonable thing to do. I tried to cope with his saying that as a father of daughters, he felt it was “common sense” not to make emergency contraception so readily available to his little girls. And now we hear that the President’s call to Sandra Fluke was a lesson for those same little girls. But n...

Scott Henson, "a former journalist turned opposition researcher/political consultant, public policy researcher and blogger," recounts how he was repeatedly stopped and eventually cuffed and detained while walking his granddaughter home through a park in Austin, TX. Henson is white and his granddaughter is black, and the police said that they were responding to a "kidnapping" call. But their response terrified the little girl and humiliated her gr...

I certainly agree it could happen anywhere, though there are places where it is far more likely. One of those being texas. The other being along the south-eastern seaboard.

[Video Link] From H. Hoover at Distriction blog, a little anecdote about a cool interaction that Stephon, a young man who was "born deaf and justifiably proud," had with the president at a recent event: Stephon stood just a few feet away from Barack Obama. The president, busy shaking hands, looked right at him. “It was like he was waiting for me to say something,” he said later. So the 26-year-old Prince George’s Community College student took ...

The internets are all a-flutter with reactions to Kony 2012 , a high-velocity viral fundraising campaign created by the "dream evangelists" at Invisible Children to "raise awareness" about Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony and child soldiers. As noted in a previous post here on Boing Boing, the project has many critics. There is a drinking game, there are epic lolpictorials, and a chorus of idiots on Facebook. The Invisible Children filmmakers have res...

Mark Kersten at Justice in Conflict on the Kony 2012/Invisible Children video everyone's going crazy over today: It is hard to respect any documentary on northern Uganda where a five year-old white boy features more prominently than any northern Ugandan victim or survivor.

Shiny. Want.
My good friend Nick Bowmast has created Mr Tappy, a rather well engineered kit for mounting cameras onto mobile devices and tablets, for the purpose of filming the screens for usability testing. The rig costs $289.00, which isn’t expensive when you consider it’s made from aircraft grade aluminium with stainless steel nuts. This thing is a labour of love. No more faffing around with blu-tack, sticky-tape or Meccano. It’s available for order now, t...

Introduction
I have a background in Interaction Design, User Research, English, Computer Engineering, and the Arts, making me comfortable with multi-disciplinary teams and multiple stakeholders. My strength is in bridging disciplines through effective communication.

Like many in my field, I believe in the power of sketching, whiteboards, and slinkies.
