Everyone is doing the whole AMA (Ask Me Anything) thing, so I thought I’d join in. I’m now on Ask.fm, and you can “AMA” here: http://ask.fm/JosephcDickerson

Some of my answers so far:

How often do you listen to the radio? What is your favorite radio station? The voices in my head usually drown out the signal. I thought the tinfoil would help, but, alas…

Shall we look for love, wait for love or forget totally about it? You should look for love in all the wrong places, get addicted to it, have the look of love, and then ask our friends, “what about love?”

What magazines do you read? Wired, Popular Mechanics, Consumer Reports, Women’s Day.

Do you prefer to be alone or around people? I like to be around people who are alone.

What makes a person “good”? The amount of seasoning applied and being cooked at the proper temperature… Oh, wait, I think you were asking about something else.

Get my book UX 101 as a free download!

After getting a lot of feedback (some good, some bad – all helpful) I have made some revisions to UX 101 and have finished up a second edition of the book. The new edition will soon be available on Amazon (in paperback and on the kindle) but, hey… Why wait? I have decided to make it available as a FREE download for any and all interested parties.

The key reason I wrote UX 101 was to provide guidance and education to newcomers interested in user experience, and the best way to get that information in thier hands is to give it away (though you can still buy a print copy if you’d like, of course).

You can download an optimized PDF of the book here, and I hope you like it!

Recently took a lunch break from work to go visit the Toonseum Museum in downtown Pittsburgh – They have displays on comic books, cartoons and comic strips as well as wall where artists who have visited add their sketches and signatures. Their current featured exhibit is on Big Little Books, with a lot of original art from some famous names. Here’s some pics:
