Getting around / by Dan Lockton

The TAXI Design network has syndicated* my post on the Nicostopper for its very interesting 'The Driver Speaks' strand of articles - perhaps not the most obvious choice of articles to choose, but I suppose it was relatively short and to-the-point compared with much on this blog. I should probably consider actually submitting some articles to TAXI directly rather than being entirely passive about it all. Jeremy Schnitker of SoloGig News has also interviewed me about freelance work - bless him, he makes me sound a lot more successful than I really am! SoloGig News is a great site with some fascinating interviews and other information for independent practitioners - as described on the site, "news you can use for the ever-growing freelance set."

A note about the future

For the last couple of months, alongside some hectic work for clients, I've been putting together a proposal for postgraduate (i.e. PhD) research which involves both environmentally sensitive design and architectures of control. Nothing is certain at this stage but as soon as there's something to report, I will of course blog the details. This could be a very exciting direction in which to head; there may be, indeed, a major road ahead.

*Note that the blockquotes in the original post have been removed without being replaced by any other formatting, so some of the quotes appear as if they're part of my prose. Also, I'm not Steffen Jahn (if only I were...), nor in fact, Dan Stockton, but those are minor quibbles!
