Last week, the IDSA Connecting Congress was held in San Francisco. My good friend Gary was in town for it, so we got a chance to catch up, and go to some parties together with friends. And we caught a great lecture by Alan Wexler (unrelated to the conference). Coincidentally, we’d seen him lecture at Cranbrook, about 10 years ago, and it was interesting to see how his work has evolved since then. I really admire his devotion to a design process he’s developed, no matter how unusual the results. His process has some relationship to the scientific method, and he’s very rigorous about his explorations.

Jason and I went to the San Francisco Zoo for the first time last weekend. We were lucky to catch both the big cats and the grizzlies eating their lunch. One grizzly wanted seconds.
