Welcome!

The main thing here is my blog, where I’ve been writing on experience design, technology and anything else that interests me since June 2000.

Previously this was named Blackbeltjones, and was known principally as a repository of writing about interaction design and the internet, but as I got older and the subject matter got wider, that became constraining – hence Magical Nihilism.

All the stuff from the ‘blackbeltjones-era’ is here, tagged and bagged…

During the last thirteen years, I’ve worked with some amazing people and been involved in the birth of the biggest news and information sites in the UK and the world, including the BAFTA award winning BBC News Onlinemore of which here.

Up until 2007 I worked for Nokia Design, looking after the user-experience for Nokia Nseries, based out of the UK. The potential of mobile and ubiquitous technology is still a huge fascination for me. Through teaching and competition/theory work, I am exploring how digital design is permeating and affecting the environment.

I was one of the co-founders and lead designer of Dopplr.com, a service for intelligent travel, and was one of the principals at BERG, a design and invention company. I’m now at Google in NYC.
