What's Moah up to these days?

I’m helping Alex Moore of Baydin to design a really awesome Email Game. It’s meant to help people who are not good with email but want to get better. It’s designed to make email less painful and more fun for people. It’s meant to help people (like me) who haven’t developed a good discipline to deal with the inbox overflow. It’s currently in Alpha and we’re getting great feedback and surprising emotional response to the game from our alpha testers. If you are one of those daring souls that love to play with pre-release software, follow @emailgame on twitter and let us know there. We will dm you with a link in a week or two.

Recap from Product Camp Boston

03.11.09 Posted in General, Technology, Tool, UI by

Check out the Flickr group to see pictures. The organizers led by C Todd Lombardo did an amazing job with the event and I am grateful for all their hard work.

I figured I should note down the books, tools and links that were flying around during the event for posterity sake.
