Stefan Sagmeister's list: Things I have learned in my life so far.

 

Complaining is silly. Either act or forget.

Thinking life will be better in the future is stupid. I have to live now.

Being not truthful works against me.

Helping other people helps me.

Organizing a charity group is surprisingly easy.

Everything I do always comes back to me.

Drugs feel great in the beginning and become a drag later on.

Over time I get used to everything and start taking it for granted.

Money does not make me happy.

Traveling alone is helpful for a new perspective on life.

Assuming is stifling.

Keeping a diary supports my personal development.

Trying to look good limits my life.

Worrying solves nothing.

Material luxuries are best enjoyed in small doses.

Having guts always works out for me.

This drunk girl was trying to "save" Ze Frank from an interesting conversation with two of the other conference panelists. She slurred in my ear, "I was trying to save his ass."

 

I said, "Wait, what? Trying to save 'HSAS'?"

 

She didn't get it.

From Stefan Sagmeister's presentation... a design project (I believe done by a student) that made him happy. They put blank speech bubbles on public signs and posters, and went back later to photograph the results. I suppose no one can resist the lure of the speech bubble.

John Hockenberry asks Ze Frank a few follow-up questions after his panel.

I helped Vincent track down David Carson.

Pam was a former board member in AIGA Houston while she was living here. It's great to see friends again! One benefit of these large national conferences.

Removing the lid from each of these bottles "releases" different bits of music from a jazz trio. The one Hiroshi Ishii built for his mother announced the weather for her area. For example, birds chirping meant the weather would be nice.

Pam and Ally, both former Portfolio Center Grads and former Houstonians now partner together in their new firm.

Marc English mingles with some ladies during the Thursday night design exhibition happy hour.

Two former UT Austin Design Professors: Henk Van Assen (now at Yale) and Katie Salen (now at Parsons).

Robin Tooms (AIGA Houston President) and James Craig (AIGA Austin Web).

The Summer Shack in Boston was a local joint near the conference... Reasonable prices and they served your food with wax paper underneath to help catch the grease.

Lella and Massimo Vignelli gave, quite possibly, the worst presentation I've ever seen. Neither looked up from the podium or varied from a monotone delivery, and she looked as though she might fall asleep during his speech. It was so bad, that I honestly can't remember a word of what they said.

One of the MIT Media Lab projects: the IO Brush has a small camera and light in the bristles that "samples" a paint selection for you to use on the digital canvas.

On Thursday morning, Sappi Paper sponsored a trip to the New England Aquarium.

Audiopad: A project from the MIT media lab showcase.

 

The table is filled with magnetic sensors that detect the position of the tokens. A mirror-reflected projector overlays the physical interface. There are various applications for the interface, but this one is an audio mixer.

 

The large round token in the middle represents the microphone, each of the smaller round tokens are audio tracks. The proximity of each track to the microphone affects the track's volume. The modifer key (4-point star) affects properties of each of the tracks such as filter effects or variations of the instrument..
