Marginalia Search

"…a search engine, designed to help you find what you didn't even know you were looking for. If you search for "Plato", you might for example end up at the Canterbury Tales. Go looking for the Canterbury Tales, and you may stumble upon Neil Gaiman's blog. If you are looking for fact, this is almost certainly the wrong tool. If you are looking for serendipity, you're on the right track. When was the last time you just stumbled onto something interesting, by the way?"

User research resources

"…the most effective surveys are kept short, stay focused on one topic, and contain a mix of closed- and open-ended questions. If a survey has too many closed-ended questions, you may not gather enough context. If it has too many open-ended questions, your participants may tire and abandon it completely."

Beyond 800 Words: Prototyping New Story Formats for News

"News on the internet is largely served up as 500 to 800-word articles - a legacy of newspapers. Although the digital article has been enhanced and improved with new technologies, it still works on the assumption that 'one size fits all'. BBC R&D is developing new story formats for news that are more effective than conventional video or article formats. I have written elsewhere about the current landscape of digital news. We think there might be better things."

How voicebots lighten our cognitive load

"We recently partnered with Mindshare Futures and J. Walter Thompson Innovation Group for their Speak Easy research project to answer that very question.
