@melizaho Nah you’ve got a long way to go :)
@melizaho That’s near my house, so yes we have reception here :) Have a lovely break Mel!
@nksyr You too mate. Have a lovely break with fam.
So good to be home and away from the routine for 16 days. Happy holidays!
Nike ad marathon (again.) I LOVE their ads.
@rungta You held it still and let it flow. Technically + aesthetically well made. Just don’t shy away from face shots :) More characters.
@grahamrb Ah yes, spam filtering is definitely worse.
@grahamrb gmail bugging you that much? What’s your biggest gripe about it?
@rashmiswamy Wishing you well in your new direction! It’ll be daunting at first but worth it in the end.
@grahamrb Can’t wait.
@established1987 Have the best trip mate. Come back safe.
@rungta To the spectacular Kangra fort?! So jealous.
@miranjdesign Nice work with resset.in! Especially liking the photography and navigation.
Overheard, “Helvetica is boring.” Tempted to say, “No, you are.” Trying to be creative in all the wrong things…
@plujambio Thanks Pablo. Helps knowing others feel the same way.
I often think about going back to Architecture school.
@xAbhishek Nice vocals. He’s got potential.
@rashmiswamy Isn’t it beautiful? The whole soundtrack is AMAZING.
@rungta And tighter leading with Helvetica instead of that Arial thing.
@adriancb URL? Where are you these days mate?
@rungta Well done! Your photo makes that cover.
@dkeeghan But not on a touch screen of iPhone’s dimensions. Every corner is reachable with the thumb, unlike today’s widescreen touch phones
@naomieve I’d get the Asus Transformer Prime for its badass name.
I’ll never ever take the Monash freeway in peak hour again. Not even when it looks fast – there is no such thing on M1.
@dkeeghan The four uniform buttons you speak of is the optimum density for touch screens of that dimension. I’d patent it if it was 2007.
<3 [thenicestpla...theinter.net](http://thenicestplaceontheinter.net "http://thenicestplaceontheinter.net")[+]
@established1987 Ninja by night.
@souvikdg Beautiful qawwal. Witnessing it live must’ve been something.
@rungta Sounds like a perfect Saturday. How was Purana Qila?
@oddysee Not even close to finishing it.
@oddysee Great line. Are you up to the third book already?
@deanfra ‘Happy recursing’
@vladzz You should still be able to get it swapped at an Apple store. Home button stuff, especially.
My gripe with Google+ is the plus. It’s just not natural. Who says “I will plus 1 this”? Pity, because it’s functionally a great product.
@rashmiswamy Colouring is always a good thing.
@twitDaveO Nope. Updated like a dream.
@deanfra It was like that for me yesterday. You must’ve just missed the incident. They need way more buses and sooner.
@deanfra I gave up and drove to the Glen Waverley line. M1 was a shocker though.
@rashmiswamy Cant wait for next month’s streaming.
I don’t believe it. A second person struck by a train on the Cranbourne line in two days.
@AronBury Congrats on launching your app.
Watching The Namesake and yearning to see the Taj Mahal again.
@juleshughan There will be a test at the end.
@juleshughan Still quarter of the way, but I’ll power through the next few.
@andrewlitvak Of course. But the artist must create with the intent of story telling, one that the audience can relate to.
If a photograph doesn’t tell a (personal) story, I’m simply not interested. Same goes for any art form.
@andrewlitvak You sound like the (troll)face of Melbourne.
Melbourne, can you not rain in peak hour? Thanks.
@gary_hustwit Will Urbanized screen in Australia? Can’t wait!
So the book confirms Jobs battling cancer right through from 2004. Note how these were also his most inventive years, with iPhone and iPad.
@amandamli That’s a bargain! Thinking about it again.
@carlalindarte Would love to renovate Batman. Do you think we could put it on Diners? ;)
@grahamrb Wowzy that’s an upgrade all right.
@grahamrb lol what have you done?!
@emlaurajackson Missing InDesign and you :( :(
@miranjdesign nice work guys. Looks great.
@andrewlitvak Likewise mate. Pity it was a quick one but next Friday!
Don’t mind an extra long commute when I’m this productive. Maybe I shouldn’t get off the train at all.
@established1987 About bloody time. Welcome to iOS :)
@xAbhishek Bittersweet, and it still hurts.
Still coming to terms with the loss of a design leader and how I’ll ever look up to another in the same way. #ripstevejobs
@zaana Aww, cute! As long as the paper pile wasn’t too heavy for him.
Annual re-watching of Richard Attenborough’s ‘Gandhi’ on this birthday of the Mahatma.
@miranjdesign Have you guys come across any good algorithms (or node/js tools) for twitter friendly unique ID generation? GUIDS are too long
@ohnoir OMG, Jo Bhi Main!
@andrewlitvak Liar :)
@andrewlitvak Umm, who confronted who, and accused of what? Anything to stop you trolling (but clearly it didn’t work ;)
My post-holiday brain keeps calculating spend in foreign currency: 90 baht for a cup of coffee?!
@amandamli It was a week full of adventure with so many stories. Will fill you in later. Hope to catch you in Sydney next week!
@rungta Awesome! Good week for music.
@CorrinaLiao Haha, for good reason :)
@emlaurajackson Missed you too! (But not the work.) Thanks for my time off :)
@twitDaveO Found the best place for local Pad Thai at Karon Beach. I could never get sick of it!
@zaana Thanks, yep I’m so relaxed right now. Bummed I missed your last day but you’re always welcome back :)
Back to reality after an incredible time in Thailand exploring islands, beaches, coral reefs, jungles, caves and fresh local cuisine.
Thrilled with @vignelli’s 1000 followers milestone. Curating is painstaking work, but it’s been an honour, and I’ve learnt so much.
@rungta nice tumblr yo.
@amandamli Definitely on my list now that you approve. Did you have to wait long at lunch?
@zaana It was great having you there! Glad you got home at a somewhat reasonable hour :)
@zaana Thanks again for giving us a hand. Hope your trip back home wasn’t too late.
@amandamli Glad it worked out :) Leon says sorry too. We’ll find time tomorrow, somehow.
@rungta That guy and his ringtone are the coolest to me.
Counting down to Spa 2011. Mixed weather, mixed grid order and Schumy fighting from last like old times should make for a great race. #f1
“Clients are more likely to trust unusual / experimental designs if they participated in them” — Anthony Ditton on co-design #UXAustralia
“Co-designing with clients can fundamentally shift clients’ perspective closer to the user.” — Anthony Ditton #UXAustralia
@oddysee Did they fix it in the end?
Nothing beats freshly squeezed orange juice from Mum’s garden.
@naomieve I can’t wait for season 2 to start!
@oddysee Damn, you must be running very late then :(
Fascinating how centuries old typefaces like Garamond and Bodoni are logotypes for fashion labels and Lady Gaga.
@chrisbride It’s so beautiful. Can’t wait to try it.
@amandamli Great man. Had forgotten what he said about today’s devaluing of ‘designer’ and why he prefers to be called a “Gestalt-Ingenieur”
@Spelter She’s adorable. Dressed so well for the occasion :)
@juleshughan The design studios of Geyer, Lyons and Hassell, Origin Roof Garden, Myer Mural Hall and ANZ. So much to see!
Perfect day for @MelbOpenHouse
@rungta OMG Fatehphur Sikri! Can’t wait for your photos from there.
@naomieve So happy for you and Dave!
@amandamli Looks gorgeous. Hurry up and take a few shots.
People speeding in school zones are the worst kind of douchebags.
@amandamli Had to be quick! It’s not often you fail at fashion :)
@grahamrb Have fun reinstalling WPS :P
@andrewlitvak That’s like Apple banning competing apps from its store, except Google doesn’t cop shit for it.
@force10x You’re at the wrong Sheraton dude. Ask me about the better one next time.
@amandamli Such a good deal! I’m seriously thinking about it.
@carlalindarte Those aren’t too bad.
QR codes are ugly. I can’t imagine them everywhere unless they’re very small and very subtle.
@grahamrb Couple of times is ok :p I’m expecting it to happen way more for me.
@grahamrb hehe, took me a couple of days too but now I love it.
The new iCal is a joke, right Apple?
Haven’t used gestures on a desktop as much as I have with Lion. Mission Control and natural scrolling are principally the right way forward.
@amolpradhan I have no idea about the comics, but boy, the title sounds so lame.
Captain America. Seriously?
@rekharach Serves me right :(
Driving in was a bad bad idea. (Detour to nearest station.) #monashfreeway
@established1987 Which font?
@juleshughan It ain’t over yet :)
@emlaurajackson LOL, that pic makes me look sick (no pun).
@emlaurajackson You twittered like twice in one day! Still high on Krispy Kremes?
Describing what I do daily is the hardest thing sometimes.
“How can I discern the bullshitter from the user experience designer? Look at what they say and look at what they did. Then compare.” — @iA
@rungta Woah, this is the most detailed sketch of the old walled city I’ve seen. All over it.
@andrewlitvak Thanks mate :) Should do it again.
@andrewlitvak LOL, but that one was too good to resist :)
@amandamli What a douche.
Banning @juleshughan from saying totes anything at work.
Typesetting with Gravur and Akkurat for a client. Elegant, legible and flexible — just what you’d expect from Swiss/Dutch typographers.
@established1987 Nice work, especially that 2KMINE cover.
@robertsparis Dammit, ok…
@robertsparis You’re here? You’re here!
Good ideas are easily expressed and understood. Bad ideas aren’t.
@xAbhishek I’ve never practically used Front Row. But with iCloud coming, I’d like a similarly integrated view to browse media (like A.TV).
@rungta Random history reads are the best.
@andrewlitvak Shows how important copywriting is! Text is a UI and words need just as much design attention as pixels.
@twitDaveO A rare sighting these days.
@andrewlitvak Now you’re just being Vakscene (Litvak + Obscene)
@andrewlitvak Vakscene or Vakcine?
@yj133 My BB skills are like my Sharepoint skills: awesome.
@manojn I’m on Google+ but their whole invite process is wonky. DM me your gmail.
Google+ could do with better copy: “Click here to +1 this post”??
Baked mushroom with Quinoa… Yum! @ The Vegie Bar http://instagr.am/p/GfShU/
@andrewlitvak hey, I deleted that tweet.
@Svenkle That was quick! It’s a good phone and you can’t complain if it’s free.
@jasehutch Goldman Sachs: http:://gs.com
@established1987 Try webmail as a fallback: mail.deloitte.com.au
I’d follow more people if only they tweeted less. #overload
@helveticade at least it’s not another blue icon.
@juleshughan I’ll try to be early, otherwise I’ll see you at fly home I guess. Have fun at training.
@juleshughan Yep, let’s get coffee first thing tomorrow :)
@force10x Are you still in Sydney?
Well done, Button. Pretty shit, Vettel. #F1
Biased BBC crew just can’t acknowledge the real driver of the race: Schumacher. Flawless racing, Schumy, in a clearly inferior car. #F1
Bloody DRS. #F1
Brilliant move, Schumy! P2. #F1
Schumacher on fire! Rain master. #F1
Two hours of waiting and they’re driving again. No more safety cars, please. #F1
@rashmiswamy Urvasi Urvasi… Classic!
@owenhodda Really good session yesterday mate. Can you post those slides asomewhere? Thanks!
@xAbhishek I’ve seen montiors at data centers showing single terminal views of running log files (‘tail -lf’). But on a personal machine…
@amolpradhan yes, it’s telling you that you’re a storage nerd.
@rungta Awesome! I’m tempted to go.
@amolpradhan stop spamming my tweet stream! I demand that iPad as compensation.
@helveticade Or use it to believe it. I’m glad they’ve figured out the whole experience across iPhone, iPad, aTV and Lion.
@amolpradhan I’ll get you an iPad 2 if you take photos around your work floor ;)
@grahamrb Yeah, we’ll need a long lunch as well. Heaps to talk about after Tuesday I’m sure.
@grahamrb And make MobileMe free.
@grahamrb And over the air, please.
@rashmiswamy What I wouldn’t give to hear ‘Jaa Re Ud Jaa Re’ live. Must’ve been special.
Really concerned for Perez :( #F1
Love Monaco qualifying. #F1
@grahamrb Nice one! I’ve been meaning to get those shoes.
@grahamrb Remember when that someone had a handful of those peas on Odyssey and literally fell over? Crazy things those wasabis.
@established1987 Maybe the end of world thing starts with emails not working.
If you need an ‘about’ page to explain what your app does, you blew it.
@andrewlitvak I’m sure you have a stash of those ringtones, but no thanks.
Purchased my first Kindle single. So damn easy to setup and sync purchases across devices. Amazon just gets it.
@adriancb Sounds good mate. Can we do 9:15? Have a bunch of meetings right after.
David Coulthard is so full of shit. Has he forgotten the early years of Schumacher in a not so competitive Ferrari. #F1
@miranjdesign Ah, makes sense now. Looks great!
@miranjdesign Steve said that about your creation?
@rungta I’m still deciding between CouchDB and MongoDB; leaning toward Mongo for now. Totally sold on Node.js though - actively developing.
@naomieve Yay! I hope he’s in good shape. Em got really excited and told me before I even got to checking Twitter.
@jwswj Know what you mean. Node.js project all day for me.
@grahamrb Will give the app a go this weekend.
@grahamrb nice one! Where did you cycle to?
@emlaurajackson Spice Market was awesome tonight. Check it out if you’re still in the city.
@rungta Nice work, especially with the one on your B&P about page.
@owenhodda Designing is a verb that should stand on its own. The misunderstanding is our profession’s failure to convey what design entails.
@amandamli That’s great, and I fully support the process being taught. I merely wish “design” weren’t reduced to a noun.
My take on “design thinking” is that designing IS thinking.
@rungta The best race in a long while.
Webber gets on the podium! From 18th! Incredible racing. #F1
@grahamrb That would work, or some other biometric check like a fancy home button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner. One day…
@grahamrb Haha, but Apple would surely rely on motion and spatial analysis from that video camera.
I hope Apple’s working on facial recognition for its front facing camera so I don’t have to enter my bloody passcode every time.
@naomieve What channel was TNG on? What time? I had no idea.
@grahamrb Loving Tweetbot sick.
@rashmiswamy Just beautiful. Wish I’d caught this before my bed time :)
@rungta Not more than what’s already on YouTube. His recordings are rare, but I’d recommend the music of any student of Allauddin Khan.
@rungta Great way to end the weekend Love that performance.
Thrilling start to the Malaysian Grand Prix. Haven’t seen such a clean, close start like this in a while. Bring on the rain! #F1
@oddysee WOW, I’m sold.
@established1987 Can you tell me when it stops playing? That’s when I head back.
@deanfrancis And “jWeb 2.0” in a few years time.
@deanfrancis Quick, before the media conjures up a buzz word!
@rungta Awesome, especially Japan’s.
@shiidii Death Rally’s on iPhone?! I used to love that game.
@rekharach Did it hurt? I’m having mine tomorrow.
@rekharach That’s sad.
@c0uP Haha, I know what you mean. My heart sunk when Sachin got out, but it was great to see the team play a measured game and win in style.
Mum’s gardening tip no. 2: “Weeds are like bad friends. Get rid of them before they spoil the good ones.”
Mum on watering our plants: “They can’t talk, but you can see they’re happy now.”
@oddysee Not sure who, but I hope we see more streams like this.
@rashmiswamy that’s so awesome! Says a lot when the likes of Gruber and Sandwich like it.
P2 from the Senna Stand @ Australian F1 Grand Prix 2011 http://instagr.am/p/Cg_Qv/
@grahamrb Incredible. I hope it’s true.
@oddysee Definitely Reeder and iBooks, but also try DropBox, SimpleNote, NYTimes, BBCNews, TED, IMDB, GarageBand, Marvel, and maybe Pages.
@oddysee must’ve been a bargain. Happy iPading.
@rashmiswamy I keep reading Instapaper as Instagram, but yes I heart them both.
@oddysee Worth a look, then worth contrasting it with the DJ store right next to it. Look for what you might think is trendy vs. timeless.
@deanfrancis Exactly. A sense of timelessness, please.
@deanfrancis Dating quickly is precisely the consequence. Leave trendiness to fashion, not in Architecture which’ll be around for years.
@deanfrancis I like the idea of a light filled atrium, but not their overly postmodern, arbitrary architecture.
The new Myer redevelopment tries to be trendy and interesting in all the wrong things.
@scottreismanis Cracker of an idea! Must give it a try.
@deanfrancis Slick website too. How’s the beer?
@deanfrancis Museo on this beer label works surprisingly well. Nice!
@juleshughan That’s a generous tip.
@deanfrancis Congrats you two! Looks delicious.
@owenhodda Amen to that. People get excited about the medium of SM, but it should be about the message.
If the dickbar’s here to stay, shouldn’t the search bar make way? I doubt search was ever used enough to warrant the top placement.
@andrewlitvak that’s a steal.
@andrewlitvak Or more correctly, actual usage will tell. Also, Kindle is awesome.
@andrewlitvak I won’t be upgrading either, but I still think it’s a game changer with its new performance and battery life.
@andrewlitvak The same was said of the first iPad.
@Leissa Come back to our office then. Promise we won’t shoot you. :)
@adriancb thanks mate :)
@established1987 Woah, something other than sushi? I’ve never seen you eat anything else.
First day of Autumn and I’m freezing already.
Best compliment ever for the @vignelli stream that I maintain: http://twitter.com/#!/ryfernandez/status/41747464360960000
Emotional and speechless after 127 Hours.
@oddysee Assume she can still see a bit?
@rungta The title reminded me of something out of MS Word (WordArt) effects. Pathetic.
@rekharach LOL. Remember when you were once a kid and you always wanted to go to school?
@Leissa Awesome! Had no idea she was touring here.
Sad for Bahrain, but awesome the we get the first F1 race of the year again. Let’s keep it that way, Bernie.
@vladzz It’s publicly known that Telstra tracks its field technicians. They copped negative press initially but stuck with it.
I’ll be generously liking, hearting and favouriting the internet today, because you’re all lovely people.
@oddysee I really hope he’ll be back. He’s one of my favouriites.
@jwswj Congrats mate! All the best in SF.
@oddysee That’s a shocker of an UI. Tell me that’s not how it looks by default?
@rekharach That’s the bridge near Myuna Farm. Heatherton Rd was blocked so I had to go towards Power Rd and saw that.
@deanfrancis Man, that’s close. Can’t take anymore rain.
@deanfrancis Good thing you didn’t stay for drinks! You must’ve caught the train just before the whole network went nuts.
@lokallobaat Thanks Sumit. Hoping so.
@rashmiswamy Yeah it was really bad in parts of Melbourne. Got home finally after 3 hours or so. More heavy rain predicted on the weekend :(
Flash flooding disruptions all over. Two hours on and I’m still trying to get home.
@force10x Send it to me then and I’ll PDF it for you in Keynote.
@force10x Not unless you PDF it first.
@rekharach Oh, that’s no good.
Really feeling for our farmers in North Queensland: http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2011/02/04/3129977.htm
@rekharach Haha, how did the Boss react?
@rekharach You’re going sick on Twitter today. Yay.
@andrewlitvak Vakardi 151?
@dkeeghan In-app purchases via Apple only sounds restrictive at first, but users benefit from a single payment system they are used to.
@rungta The long wait is almost over! The new Ferrari looks the most elegant. Have to see what McLaren produce.
@rekharach Eat something then.
@rashmiswamy Bunch of losers. They’re everywhere, but Bangalore getting worse is especially sad. Hope you’re ok.
@rekharach take a photo!
@grahamrb Yeah, it’s pretty cool, right?
@ohnoir A great loss.
@amolpradhan I concur. We must go back there.
@grahamrb Ooh, can’t wait to try the new filters!
@amolpradhan Oh crap. They’re in risk of taking it already.
@amolpradhan LOL, yes, and bouncers.
Off to the ‘G @ Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) http://instagr.am/p/BAOmP/
@grahamrb So frekin awesome. I could get used to that gesture.
@grahamrb That’s awesome news. Can’t wait for it.
@oddysee Yeah, it’s a nice effect right? And all without flash.
So glad Tweetie 2 is out. My only complaint is with the “New Tweet” action – it deserves more emphasis than being buried under bottom-left.
