In the realm of big little problems, my DC barber of the last 7 years, Mr. Duvall was not at his usual perch at “The Hair Company”. And worse, the folks who were the barber shop were not very helpful telling me what happened. Luckily I was able to track him down and got a cut. All is well.
For those searching for Mr. Duvall, you can contact him at 202-289-0647, he’s taking appointments. And his email is dhairco1 <at> yahoo <dot> com.
A bit dated, but here’s my blog post last month on my experience on Kickstarter. My reward for this piece has been an ongoing stream of pitches from Kickstarter entrepreneurs!.
Had a great conversation with the online news site eMedia Vitals. This interview is turning out to be really useful for us in explaining what WaPo Labs does.
Here’s a good excerpt:
The design meets Ravindran’s objective of a “tuning” option that doesn’t overburden users who want to customize their experience but is also easily ignored by users who want the stories selected for them.
“We’re OK with 95% of users never utilizing tuning if they don’t want to,” he explained. “But it’s there if someone really wants it. You need a strong implicit experience for the lightly engaged, but you need to give an escape outlet when they want to engage more heavily.”
Thanks to the site for talking to us at such depth!
