Can Human-Centered Design 'Fix' Humanitarian Aid?

This is a very interesting article or interview. Anway, It's what inCompass, my workplace, is doing now. My colleague wrote in her post on Google+ that "Nice to read how other people explain and talk about what we do :) ". To me, I feel the same. I've been partly involve with Human Center Design research methodology for 6 months now. It's been a great experience to design something with and for our end-users, Cambodians. inCompass is the first Innovation Lab that use HCD methodology in Cambodia.  

Read this to find out more about what inCompass as well as HCD researchers are doing. Find out how effective and efficient HCD in the design industry is.

PchumBen

It's been a while I haven't written anything on this blog. So now it's time to write it again.

At my workplace it seems so quiet because everyone is having holidays and we are going to have one week off for "Ancestors' Day" or "PchumBen". One of my colleague, Vishal, will go to Thailand. Miriam will go to Vietnam. Some are staying in Phnom Penh with great plan. However, le me haven't decided yet.

I don't think it is a good time to go out when I have injuries with my hand during my fieldwork last last week. It's a small cut with blood flowing as hell and a big disaster. My worst experience working at the field. I got two stitches on my wrist. My colleague, Vishal, paid $10 for that. My director paid $150 for that broken glass slide door. Damn slippery! Bad bathroom experience. :( Actually, this should be written in a separate post. But, yeah! Who cares?

Since 13-10-15, Just remove one last stitch last night.

I'm thinking of doing some polishes with my novel writing or hanging out with my gf. Or maybe spending some solid and useful time learning about HCD. That's how I'm going to spend my holidays. How about yours? Wish everyone a safe and happy trip during PchumBen Days. :D
