  18. design is not linear
  19. problem solving is squiggly
  20. How I work now... - get a multidisciplinary team quickly. - sketch to HTML, stay out of photoshop - real content, prototype/testing content- multiple prototypes (test lots of ideas, don’t commit) - quickly test both qualitative and ‘active’ use - let stakeholders ‘touch’ your ideas - iterate, the more quickly to learn more. - only document what you really need to.
  21. prototyping beats abstraction
  22. Be making,not documenting what does it feel like?
  23. Don’t work alone a small, co-located team is best -you (UX/IA)- 1 or 2 FE Developers (UX Developers?) - Content Prototyper - BA / Project Mgr - Visual/Graphic Designer - 1 or two Back End Dev
