Presentations started today, and started with some good ones. It’s truly refreshing to see the variety of what others in the program are doing, and the really distinct places that folks are carving out for themselves. Hopefully I’ll be able to do the same.
Lots of usability work today–including a first usability test and a solid evening session to get caught up for tomorrow, when we’ll do paper prototyping. While the project’s all quite top-secret right now, I’m hoping it’ll prove to be helpful, rather than yet something else to bog down. Once our small group got out of the “classroom” setting, we definitely began to fall into some roles, which hadn’t really happened yet. Good to see the group coalescing and starting to cohere (as other groups seem to be having trouble doing so–I just hope I’m not misreading my own peers!)
Tomorrow’s new experience: first Annual Review meeting, about which I’m excited/nervous; despite having had this described to me, and having done what paperwork I can, I can’t really say that I’m absolutely sure what to expect. We shall see if I really can handle “an hour of me.”
And I’ve GOT to work on this presentation…
