Welcome to This Is Altadena, a podcast hosted by the Altadena Libraries, celebrating people's life experiences and stories, and the hidden histories of Altadena, California.
To my knowledge this is the only local area podcast I’ve come across.
I am Martin Fowler: an author, speaker… essentially a loud-mouthed pundit on the topic of software development, primarily for Enterprise Applications. I work for ThoughtWorks, a software delivery company, where I have the exceedingly inappropriate title of "Chief Scientist". I have written half-a-dozen books on software development, including Refactoring, and Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture. I write for and edit the website martinfowler.com.
My main interest is to understand how to design software systems, to maximize how much value development teams can deliver. In doing this I've looked to understand the patterns of good software architecture, and also the processes that support software design. I've become a big fan of agile approaches and the resulting focus on evolutionary software architecture. I don't come up with original ideas, but do a pretty good job of recognizing and packaging the ideas of others, or as Brian Foote describes me: "an intellectual jackal with good taste in carrion".
Interesting writing in general. Considers his site a bliki, which is a portmanteau word that combines blog and wiki.
I really enjoy mixing together toys, art, architecture, and community design. Sometimes, you’ll find me dreaming about the multiverse of magical disciplines, authoring environments, and inter-generational neighborhoods. For most of my days, I feel both exponentially lost and immensely motivated. However, if you know me in real life, you probably won’t spot either on my face, but, you may notice it through my behavior. I enjoy sending out and receiving physical letters, so if you’d like to receive a postcard from me, email me your mailing address at wei at weiweihsu dot com.
I’m a multidisciplinary design and product leader living in sunny Philadelphia, PA.
I’m Senior Design Director at InVision where I lead the Marketing Design team. I’m co-founder and Creative Director of A Book Apart, a boutique publisher of design and UX books with a library of 34 titles and growing—including my own, On Web Typography, and industry-defining titles like Responsive Web Design and Mobile First.
Over the past 18 years I’ve worked at design and web agencies, startups—including two of my own, news and media publishers, and spoken at dozens of conferences to thousands of people around the world.
Previously, I was Design Director at Slate where I lead a company-wide brand and site overhaul. I served as Vice President of AIGA/NY, Executive Design Director at Vox Media, faculty at the MFA Interaction Design program at SVA, and Creative Director for A List Apart, , and Happy Cog. I’ve worked for clients such as AIGA, The Chicago Tribune, Housing Works, PBS, The United Nations, and WordPress.
I have a deep love of learning, teaching, and fostering community around design.
I am the Technical Content Manager at Career Karma, where I lead our tutorials for beginner programmers. I am interested in quantified self and coffee. I'm always up for a chat about these topics.
I love getting email. Send me an email at jamesg [at] jamesg [dot] app if you want to chat.
there is always something that bothers me

I’m a graphic designer doing environmental outreach in the public sector, and a fiction writer and photographer in my personal time. I live in the Seattle area, having moved to Washington state in 2008. I use this blog to explore different productivity techniques, consider my philosophy about creative work, search for balance between my creative work and the rest of my life, serve as an accountability tool and record of what work I do, and give back to the creative community.

Hey there. I’m Theresia Tanzil. Or tre in short.
When I first got to know the internet in the year 2000, I made a commitment to myself: to spend each and every single day to learn as much as I can. Fast forward 20 years – that decision had taken me to very good places.
But from now, I am going to flip the commitment: to spend each and every single day to produce and share what I have learned as much as I can.
This is where I:
- talk to myself. 100% of the stuff I post here is my way of thinking through something.
- share things I am working on, things that interest me, ideas, and musings that I came across as I learn about the world.

And here to find out what I’m currently working on, thinking about, and spending my time.
If you need help or just want to chat about to any of these areas, I am most reachable on Twitter.
Making life memorable. That's it.
