Documenting the conflict between good intents and bad outcomes.

Hey you! :)
I’m trying out a new platform for delivering both musings, personal events and the very best of the content I share on various platforms. So if you truly don’t want to miss my favorite links then yes, this is still the newsletter you want to stay with.

Business & Personal
  • My UX Podcast co-host James and I will be at Interact London October 18-19 to cover the conference and interview speakers, among them Lou Rosenfeld, Pamela Pavliscak and Sarah Doody.
  • I’ll be speaking at the Swedish public sector conference Webbdagarna Offentlig sektor on October 25 about the work processes that helped us build a national online platform for therapy, psychoeducation and rehabilitation.
  • My puppy is now 4 months old! I really hit the breaks in August when my family welcomed home a french bulldog puppy who just completely stole our hearts. Currently I’m working half-time from home until she’s old enough for doggie care.
You know you want a pic of her! She has her own Instagram account too:
Getting a tummy rub. Favorite thing in the world!
  • On World Usability Day, November 10, I will be doing a pretty deep, personal talk (at STIMDI’s event) on design ethics and my journey from junior designer to where I am today. The working title - translated - is My user, my human, my mistake.
  • Two weeks ago I did a talk about content-first design and content prototypes (In Swedish). Let me know if that’s something you might be interested in watching.
  • I am gradually signing up more coaching clients. Turns out that the Internet is actually a great place for selling your services. Who knew?
  • Work on my book is also going forward but slowly because… puppy! But you can sign up for updates on the book website: UX Sidekick.
I’ll let you get on with your work now. Or… maybe not. Below are some of my favorite links from the past week. I think you’ll find them to your liking.
Be good and remember to keep moving!
