Paddle like the devil

Sunday, August 30, 2009

One of my favourite quotes is from the 1978 movie Convoy, with the one and only Kris Kristofferson. Kristofferson, playing a trucker nicknamed Rubber Duck, mentions:

See, my daddy always told me to be just like a duck. Stay smooth on the surface and paddle like the devil underneath!
Well, that's exactly how things are going with this project. The UX Storytellers are still in silent mode, though this blog is of course live and public. There is no tweeting, marketing or facebook announcing going on.

But under the hood, there is a lot happening. To this day, a great number of outstanding ladies and gentlemen have committed themselves to contributing a story to the UX Storytellers project. We have many book authors, a few professors, many founders and managing directors, lots of senior user experience designers, architects and strategists. We have many famous UX Bloggers and some creative directors on the list. We have senior information architects and UX evangelists.

The feedback we are getting is awesome.

There are still some of you out there who are thinking about whether to join this UX adventure or not. Some of my emails remain unanswered. I hope you read this and join our project soon. It would be terrific to have you on board, too.
