All the discussion about "great designers" that we had a couple of weeks ago left me dissatisfied. Rather than just throwing out names that I thought were good or great, I wanted to put some meat on those bones, some rigour to the process. It wasn't hard to do. And I found the results startling.

A year ago I received a Kindle Fire for my birthday. I hadn’t asked for one and in a lot of ways I really didn’t want one, but I toyed with it a bit and realized that I kind of liked it. It was quicker to get web access on it than it was my laptop, was more mobile and generally lasted longer on a battery. Over a six week period it grew to be a pretty big presence in my life, and my traditional e-ink Kindle was more or less set aside. I pull...
