Simple Script

http://vimeo.com/2480904 I wrote the simple script below and once my friend recorded the audio he changed a few words to make it funnier. The script is short and simple. Short sentences that guide the call dialogue and asks most of the questions since its voice activated, we have to ask the questions not the callers. We have to anticipate the caller’s answers in order for the voice activated system to work. Check out the video to see. If the caller says something that we don’t put into the system then the call will hang up. I can help with the anticipated answers.

Below is the flyer I made in order to get callers for the script

I posted the flyers everywhere and caught people taking the numbers.




Half the World Will Use a Mobile Phone by 2009

Half the World Will Use a Mobile Phone by 2009


A new market study from Portio Research predicts that 50% of the world’s population will be using a mobile phone by the end of 2009, and Africa now boasts the fastest growth rate in the world, forecast to add 265 million new mobile subscribers over the next 6 years. Among the top 25 growth markets ranking list (2006-2011) there are a few surprises. India wins the top spot, just ahead of China, and almost equally in 3rd place are Brazil, Indonesia and Nigeria, but the real surprises start in 6th place with the US mobile market tipped to grow by almost 66 million net additions from the start of 2006 to the end of 2011.

google_ad_slot = “4227093338”;
google_ad_width = 300;
google_ad_height = 250;


This puts volume growth in the USA ahead of fast developing markets such as Pakistan, Mexico and the Ukraine. Russia is positioned lower than some may expect, in 11th place, below Iran and Bangladesh, while Japan appears in 18th place, with a predicted 14 million net subscriber additions by 2011, surprisingly placing above South Africa and Venezuela.

While Western Europe and the US will see 50%+ subscriber penetration of 3G by 2011, the Asia Pacific region will see only 35%, albeit with 1.06 billion subscribers by 2011, making this the largest regional 3G market in the world.

The number of mobile subscribers worldwide reached over 2 billion by the end of 2005, and is predicted to rise to 3.96 billion by 2011. The Asia Pacific Region will account for 50% of the total number of subscribers worldwide by the end of this decade with a staggering 1.067 billion subscribers shared between China and India alone, the world’s two biggest mobile markets.”

A very interesting talk by Jan Chipchase

Jan Chipchase

Tiger.Blam. 5th November 2008 presentation at the Morgan Stanley Auditorium hosted by Frog Design & the Interaction Design Association at the NYC hosted by Robert Fabricant.

Jan currently conducts research for Nokia Design and runs user studies and develops new applications, services and products that, if done right will be used 3 to 15 years from now. He use to be a Principal Researcher in the Nokia Research Center, Tokyo. Now Jan specializes in taking teams of concept/industrial designers, psychologists, usability experts, sociologists, and ethnographers into the field and.  “The tough part of the job is in using the data to inform, inspire and affect how my colleagues think and what they do, and in turning research into core intellectual property that underpins the future business” (http://www.janchipchase.com/about).

Future Perfect is about the collision of people, society and technology, drawing on issues related to the design research that I conduct on behalf of my employer – Nokia. “Jan Chipchase


Prettie and Aussim’s future co-workers

Since Prettie Reddy and Aussim Bhutt work at a call center I realized that they need more co-workers to make up an office full of call operators therefore I created a few more characters and asked some friends to draw what they might look like. Here’s what we came up with…

We used napkins and colorful markers to create the potential characters

Prettie Reddy (is a Dentist), Rick Shaw (cab driver), Para Salin (future political candidate), Ophelia Payne (Teacher based on SNL character called Debbie Downer), Doug Graves (works at a mortuary), Bud Wieser (Bartender), and Iona Stonehouse (Soccer Mom)

I got my inspiration from this site that has a ton more names with double meanings (http://www.bored.com/namehumor/)

Techno Textiles 2 – lecture by Marie O’Mahony

The advent of new and advanced technologies has had a dramatic impact on the world of textiles. Its influence can be seen in every area from fashion and product design to art and architecture. Highly engineered fibers and fabrics are allowing new structures to be produced with enhanced performance characteristics. New surface treatments are transforming the appearance, aesthetic and performance of fabrics. Digital advances are changing both the appearance and viewpoint of textiles, while new developments in electronics have opened up whole new areas of interactive art and design. The outcome is that we are seeing not only textile artists and designers reassessing fabric, but product designers, engineers and architects have come to regard the material in a new light.

Marie O’Mahony is an independent textile and technology consultant based in London. Her clients range from NIKE to Arts Council England to Zaha M Hadid and Hussein Chalayan. She has curated numerous exhibitions, including The Fabric of Fashion for the British Council and her books include TechnoTextiles, SportsTech and Cyborg – The Man Machine. Her most recent book titled TechnoTextiles 2 (coauthor) was published by Thames and Hudson last year. During August 2006 she is a visiting lecturer at UNSW COFA conducting workshops on ‘Camouflage’. Her visit to UNSW is supported by the Ove Arup Foundation.
