I’ve submitted two talks to SXSW 2009:

  • Designing for Sign-Up
    This talk is for anybody who has ever had the problem of getting people to sign up for their web application. I got frustrated trying to find good resources on how to do this effectively that I decided to write it up myself.
  • Managing Your Online Identity Outside the Walled Garden
    This is a copanel with fellow Newburyporter John Eckman, who knows this stuff cold. We’ll be focusing on those tools that exist outside of walled gardens that help rather than hinder you in sharing your identity.

I was also invited to speak on a panel: The Problem with Design Research with Robert Hoekman, Jr. and Jared Spool, in which we’re going to be talking about when design research actually gets in the way…but we’ll each be taking different viewpoints so as to keep it interesting.

If these talks sound interesting to you, please let the SXSW folks know by voting for them or leaving a comment, as part of the way that SXSW filters through so many submissions is by aggregating public feedback.

See you in Austin!

Hi there. So...I'm trying an experiment. I'm experimenting with product design and growth hacking strategies on a new project called What to Wear. It's a super simple service that sends you a daily email containing clothing recommendations based on the weather. My focus is to make it really useful, and it's free to sign up. Let me know what you think!
