We all need a break every once in a while. That includes the whiteboard newsletter.
Winter quarter has ended, and spring break is upon us. That means the campus is getting a little quieter. But the d.school is humming. There are changes to the space afoot, and the work of the media design team is beginning to ramp up.
I am on that team.
That's why the whiteboard newsletter is taking a break. I need to begin carving more time into my schedule for my team and the work we seek to do. There's a "slow to respond" message on my inbox, and I am committing to the elimination of as many deadlines as possible to which we haven't commonly agreed.
Now, does that mean the whiteboard is dead? Absolutely not! It remains alive and well. The only change is that the newsletter will no longer be delivered weekly. Instead, it will go out occasionally.
Will we notify you when applications for the fellows program go out? Of course! Will the Twitter and Facebook accounts remain active? You bet. Will I stop writing about what's happening at the d.school or my and others' process? Nope.
It's just the newsletter that, like the cat above, is taking a nap. It's getting a bit quieter, calmer and may roll over and talk in its sleep a bit to keep you up to date on the d.school and its offerings.
Our last weekly delivery will be Friday, March 20. If you have questions please feel free to leave them in the comments.
