Experiments in Designing User Interface and Organizational Techniques
I am interested in the human aspects of technology and technique. I firmly believe that technology should enhance the human experience, and should be designed in a user-centric manner. The same goes with business and organizational processes. Here are a few of my more major experiments and thoughts on user interface design and organizational techniques.
Task logs are a time management technique I developed for managing working on projects in time fragments. This technique is based on how operating systems handle switching between tasks and handling interrupts. I discuss my initial experiment in an article, followed by a follow-up on my findings. In summary you record the current task, your next task and any additional notes to help you restart a task quickly. I found this technique handy and helped me to make mental notes when I’m interrupted in a task.
