  • IDEO cards... haven't really used them. I have opened them up a few times but I haven't integrated them into design crits. Just haven't.

Bigger Bookcase

I finally got a bigger bookcase for my office. I still have books on the floor and double stacked on the bottom row (and even books behind them)... time to start giving them away.
