As someone who designs products for a living, Kathy Sierra has been really instrumental in my continuing education of product design. Kathy has written a number of training books for O’Reilly and used to run a product design blog called “Creating Passionate Users”
Helping users “kick ass” has been my adopted mantra and I have Kathy to thank for that.
About a year ago, Kathy stopped blogging. I won’t talk about it here, but you can read about it on her site.
I really miss Kathy’s help in creating kick ass web sites so I was pretty happy to see this interview.
Here is a video interview from the recent Tools of Change conference. While the focus of the conference is publishing, this video serves as a great overview of Kathy’s studies and writings.
