I’m getting closer to knowing, for sure, where I want to take my career. As I think about it, I keep coming back to a need I have to make peoples’ lives better. I suppose that’s a pretty broad statement, but regardless of whether that means making life easier, helping people feel more empowered or simply making the world a more beautiful place, the statement still rings true.

Hmmm…that doesn’t narrow it down much, does it?

In addition to looking for a new job, I’m also considering a return to academia. I’ve spoken about this, briefly, with tpodd. He’s been working on a survey of graduate programs in the domain of human-computer interaction.

In the off-chance that this will expedite his work: please send me your grad school recommendations.

Personal pontification...
