Well,

Last night was an amazing summer time event. We had over 50 people
come to listen to Chris Fahey's talk on interaction design and style.
I particularly loved 2 aspects.

1. That no matter how much we try to avoid style, you are always in some style.
2. That heck, envisioning the style (or look and feel) from the
beginning of a design is not a bad thing. You have it in your head.
Fess up and get it out there.

Lastly, the diagram that he used to distinguish between classic
software business analysis process--waterfall approach--of problem
definition first and only then solution description and implementation
vs. a designer's approach of constantly moving between problem
definition and solution description in an iterative fashion.

It is all great stuff.

I also really appreciated Chris' depth of knowledge of the literature
around style and design and his fantastic PPT style. A great
presentation!

Thanx Chris!
