I'm an enthusiastic UX lover, particularly interested in the subjective experiential implications of information technology. What UX is all about? How to design for UX? How to measure it? How to make it a commercial asset? In research, I’m leading a group of Social Technologies, researching how to enhance social interaction with information technology.
