My name is Tim, I'm currently a fourth year at the University of Washington studying Interaction Design & Computer Science.

I don't like to confuse movement with progress, but I only found that out after a lot of movement. I enjoy purposeful design, genuine people, deep conversations around the fireplace, immersive and cohesive experiences. Technology is my preferred design medium. Feel free to reach me through anything listed below.
Could we create a conversational UI that seeks to learn everything that you know?
I've been thinking a lot about how we digest information, and how we learn better with incremental knowledge absorption. I remember being filled with a lot of random facts as a kid, but nowadays I find myself struggling to remember the artists of my fav songs. I think this is partially due to how we digest information, and its availability. Anyways, after watching how Bill Gates remembers what he reads and I was reminded of what computer scientists call "rubber ducking". What if we could interact with something a little smarter than a rubber duck to help us solidify what we learn. What if it was a conversational UI that incrementally got "smarter" as we learned more.
Would it help us retain information better? Would we have a better understanding of what we know? Would we be learn how to be more patient?
Just watched an episode of yappie despite prior aversions to (bleh) Wong Fu Films. But I was surprised and a little shook. Was I seeking to be a young asian professional? Stable job, loves basketball, boring? I think there's value in some of those things, and we asians-americans are in an interesting spot here. Do we choose to play things "safe" and satisfied, or do we pursue our dreams without reservation?
