I’m an experience designer, researcher and strategist @yiibu. I'm also a writer and closet anthropologist exploring how culture, institutions, and economics shape the development and use of technologies.
Themes of research include mobile-only business models in emerging economies; the interplay of native and web technologies; the evolution of storytelling in an age of distributed experiences; and the design of adaptive and anticipatory services.
I hold workshops, speak at design and technology focused conferences around the world, and regularly publish my thinking in presentations. If you only have time to read one, I highly recommend The Emerging Global Web.
I'm also experimenting with interesting ways to tell speculative stories about today and tomorrow's world.
