What Kevin is doing now
I’m currently in Wellington, New Zealand working on:
- Subform, a CAD-inspired UI design tool that I’m building with @ryanlucas
- Finda, a recognition-based, information-dense computer interface to end the tyranny of GUI windows, tabs, and useless hierarchy
I’m currently not working on (but may pick up later):
- Designing a workshop: I decided to postpone a summer 2017 build to focus on Subform
- Speaking at conferences: After 20+ talks across 8 countries, I’m taking a break
- Artisanal cell phone: I have a working prototype, but am currently stuck on aesthetic challenges
