Booting Up

There’s something magical for me about the purr of a game console starting for the first time, the chime of a new computer, the progress bar reaching 99%. It’s one part childlike anticipation – of the new, the different, the better – but one part a recognition of the incredible possibilities afforded us by each generation of devices, software, and services, whether that is the transformative power and portability afforded by our always-connected smartphones or the widespread success of mass political and social movements coordinated by social networks.

There’s this bond we forge with our devices, our favorite apps, our most enjoyable games. They extend our minds, our abilities, our entertainment, and make an irreversible impact on our lives.

My aim is to explore the design, potential, experience, and the ultimate impact of the technologies we see and touch every day, as well as talk about what’s coming next. Hope you enjoy the ride.
