This year at SXSW, I’m talking about an ongoing experiment I’ve been doing here at R/GA for the past year. It’s not an experiment about software or hardware, nor does it involve social networks or mobile apps, it’s an experiment with the brainstorming process.

At the end of 2012, Web Designer magazine asked the R/GA London technology team for our opinion on what would be “hot” for web design in 2013. After a bit of group discussion we put forward 5 things, which ended up being published over a frighteningly large photograph of my head! Those 5 things were […]
Help Xcode 4 help you! Work more efficiently with these tips, focusing more on the code and less on the IDE. Tip #1 Use separate tabs for different tasks (editing source, editing nibs, debugging, building, etc). Cmd+T opens a new tab. Each tab will remember its layout, so you can configure it to fit a […]
After re-acclimating to the unique mixture of highly oxygenated air and cigarette smoke found only in Las Vegas, I joined the melee at the convention center for CES, the largest consumer electronics show on earth.
