“I’m a designer and researcher at IBM’s T. J. Watson Research Center in New York. I’ve been at IBM since June ’97; before that I spent nine years in Apple’s research group. These days I’m interested in making sense of what’s going on on the Internet, and in designing systems that make it possible for large groups of people to interact coherently and productively over networks. More generally, I am interested in topics such as genre theory, pattern languages, urban design, real and virtual communities, everyday routines and rituals, ethnography, geography and the sense of place, and the sociology of human-human interaction, all of which inform my approach to systems design.” Make sure to go to the ‘Professional’ page.
