Yesterday, my girlfriend and I decided to venture out into the thunderstorms to find something to eat. We ended up at Del Taco since my girlfriend wanted mexican and had never been there. I had been there before, but it’s been a long time.
As soon as we walk in, we notice that there is absolutely no one in there besides the staff. As we approach the ordering counter, this very hyper teenage cashier points at me and says “Dude, I love your shirt!” I had to look down because I forgot what shirt I was wearing. At first I thought I was wearing my Firefox logo t-shit because all the young kids comment on it, but it was instead my Bob Marley t-shirt. I reply, “Thanks dude!”. We proceed to order 6 $1 classic tacos, at which point the cashier replies “Or, for the same price, you can get 12 mini tacos.” The he points at me and says “I’m just thinking like a stoner dude! That’s what I would do”. So I reply, “we’ll take the 6 $1 classic tacos please.” I couldn’t believe he did this right in front of his manager and the rest of the crew, who were just standing there waiting for the order to give them something to do.

Last month I was fortunate enough to attended the inaugural Artifact Conference in Austin, Texas. Artifact is “a two-day, single-track conference for DESIGNERS adapting to the challenge of designing for a MULTI-DEVICE world”. That description was exactly what I was looking for while preparing myself to dive into the world of Responsive Web Design.
It all started with Jennifer Robbins having an idea for a pow-wow to discuss a new workflow for a multi-device web, since our old processes and workflows are no longer cutting it. She tweeted about it and Christopher Schmitt from Environment for Humans obliged within two minutes. Thank you both!
@jenville I’m in!
