Up and Away

Up

This morning I took delivery of a piece of tech that promises to help me ‘Know Myself’ and ‘Live Better’. The Jawbone UP – is a band that you wear around your wrist that measures things like the quality of your sleep and the number of steps you take in a day. I’ve heard mixed reviews, but I’m willing to give it a shot.

I’m the kind of guy that looks forward to the day when I can have a chip in my arm that tracks my fitness and let’s me pay for lunch without having to grab my wallet, so this is a start.

With the new addition of the UP to my life, it felt like the right time to push the ‘publish button’ on this blog. I’ve been writing for a few month’s but haven’t hit go. I just did.

I spend my time designing and making things or talking to people who design and make things. Posts will be popping up every now and then. Common post tags are likely to be: <User Interface> <Tech> <Biz> <Travel> <Ideas> <MVP> <UX> <Design>.

For those interested, the sign up process for UP was really great. I only grabbed a couple of screen shots (see below), sorry. The UI is flat-ish and nice. I’ll let you know if I find it useful.

Thanks to @smithjw for the UP. (I owe you some cash).
