Jan Chipchase, a colleague of mine in user-research at Nokia has started a new blog called ‘Future Perfect’, wherein he posts snippets of his experiences travelling the globe studying the use of technology.

Jan has a great eye for the unexpected detail in the everyday, which makes him fantastic to work with as a designer, and will be fabulous to read has his blog develops.

From this post on the culture of mobile phone repair shops in India (where he took the excellent photo above):

“a lot of the hyperbole surrounding western hacker culture makes me smile compared to what these guys are doing day in day out.”
