Time on my Hands

I had some time on my hands this morning, so I decided to install WideMail. Immediately, I organized a few hundred emails into folders. And I’ve been chipping away at it for ages. It just keeps piling up. Now it seems I finally stand a chance of winning the battle against email! I’ve always been a skeptic, so I’m amazed at how a little thing like interface can make such a difference.

Now I’m also considering Things. I need to find a way to do all the things that I want to do. Such as get more serious about photography, etc etc etc etc etc.

And yes, I need to come up with a better blog title too. Hole in my Head is morbid and lame.

Hi, A Real Human Interface

Just saw our last movie at the Singapore Design Film Festival, Craftwork. Hi, a real human interface, from Multitouch Barcelona, was the best clip of the lot, although I also liked The Art of Drowning and to a lesser extent, the potato one.

We also saw Milton Glaser, Rem Koolhaas, Herb & Dorothy as well as Visual Acoustics. Herb and Dorothy was the most enjoyable followed by a tie between Visual Acoustics and Milton Glaser. Visual Acoustics might have been slightly better because Julius Shulman was so charming and the architecture was awe inspiring. Rem Koolhaas was a bore and I almost fell asleep until I realised that they were speaking in Dutch and I had to stay awake to read the subtitles.
