I started a new blog and maintain Bits of HCI archived as a memory of the time of my doctoral studies. Please, visit delightfuldesign.zone. I have moved to San Francisco after 8 years of living in the Midwest. I miss the gorgeous Fall leaves and fresh snow hit by light but I am also happy […]
I opened my Facebook today and found this ad, Isn’t it interesting? I remember to have heard that Facebook is not cool anymore and that basically, it is a platform for old people.
