Been enjoying the recent Power of Ten episode featuring @changeist - there's a lot of good stuff being said. I primarily like the idea of 'understanding through narrative' and the reflections made on user centered design.
I've been poking at Scuttlebut a little bit over the past few days, very interesting take on a social system.
