Frank N. Stein

The delightful poster to the right was created to advertise a recent presentation of mine.

What might that green monster represent? The user experience created by your company? The user experience personnel in your company who complain that they want to play a bigger role in your company than you created for them to play? Other personnel in your company who won't let you, the user experience practitioner, play the role that you want to play in your company? ???

The painting actually, in theory, depicts me in a past life -- Frank N. Stein, the creation of Maddy the Mad Scientist, the wonderful 9-year-old artist in a past life. But I like the metaphorical interpretations, such as those referenced above.

(The "N" stands for Nigel.)
