    Great talk - articulated many aspects of design choices that many of us make on a subconscious level that we should be thinking more actively about...

    I really enjoyed Jon Sandruck's presentation. He provided a lot of food for thought and he offered suggested reading material that backed up his perspective on design and how our human brains respond consciously and unconsciously. I also appreciate LevelTen for hosting and always providing an atmosphere for easy sharing.

    Enjoyed it very much, Jon. You also answered an unasked question I had about why, when you go to http://www.cardsagainsthumanity.com/ they have an amazon button and don't sell the game and do the fulfillment themselves. Thanks!

    Thank you, everyone who came out. I hope everyone had as good a time as I did, and took something away that they can use in their day-to-day.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
