Vincent Vijn Interaction design, research & development

I've built my first website in 1998. Remember Webrings? Java Applets? Guestbooks? Flash intro movies? We had it all - and more. Those were the days 'because we can' was the only reason necessary to add a feature to a website.

Both me and the web have matured quite a bit since then. My personal focus shifted more to the human side of technology (user experience & interaction design) even though I still keep my development skills current.

I still love being on the front and to explore the possibilities of new technologies. Computers show up in more and more places and devices and we need to design meaningful uses for them and discover what the best way is to interact with these devices, so we can get beyond the 'just because we can' phase.
