Geekiness and life on the third coast

SxSW Day 1


Today was an easy day I only attended two sessions:

The first was on design with Christina Wodtke of Elegant Hack. She was excellent and I have a lot of ideas now to help with an app I’ve been stuck on.

She recommends:
The Art of Game Design

The second was with Jason Silva of Jason Silva

He recommended several books:
Natural Born Cyborgs
Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid
What Technology Wants
The Denial of Death
What the Dormouse Said: How the Sixties Counterculture Shaped the Personal Computer Industry

I’ve read Godel and What Technology wants, both were excellent, I’m looking forward to reading the others.
