“And that’s what I think the magic ingredient is, the secret sauce, is can you invoke wonder. Wonder is honest, it’s completely innocent. It can’t be artificially evoked. For me, there’s no greater ability than the gift of another human being giving you that feeling — to hold them still just for a brief moment in their day and have them surrender to wonder. When...

a little note to my entrepreneur self
Things I’ve learned and gone through by being an Entrepreneur. 1. Learning to HUSTLE! This word got stuck in my mind after Tina Roth Eisenberg(Swiss-Miss) talked at our Entrepreneurial Design class and has continued to echo throughout the whole process. This “work ethic” got Metro Fitter to be connected to Thrillist, got my blog post to be reblogged over 1000 times, got me to...

pieratt: You have an inherent need to solve problems, visually and conceptually. There is enormous value in this, but you may be misplacing your talents. The internet, at this time in history, is the greatest client assignment of all time. The Western world is porting itself over to the web in mind and…
Have you ever seen a subway station in New York with all these discarded MetroCards on the floor like this photo? Okay, maybe not this bad, but I definitely have seen a station floors with lots of discarded MetroCards. So My teammate Myn Kang and I decided to tackle this problem while we do our $1000 final project for our Entrepreneurial Design class. Before I lived in New York, whenever I...
so many interesting things, and now what?
I don’t know if it’s just me or not, but I get really excited about learning about human psychology. I took a intro psychology in undergrad once, and it was all about neurobiology, which made psychology really unattractive to me. It was interesting, but I was more interested in learning the reason behind all the human behaviors and less interested in what each brain parts do. Earlier...
This post is such a long overdue, but here it is. This is the Part 2 of Meeting Chris Poole. One really important idea that I took away from talking to Chris is that enforcing positivity is the most important job that the designer and the people who run a community site must do. One question that I was dying to ask Chris was, who will act responsively when you are anonymous? I always believed...

jsbthesis: Data and Social, these are the two things I am interested in out of many other things.

Metro Fitter: Final round of prototyping and the...
So today, we did our final round of prototyping. We finally found the right material. With this material, it’s matte, and we can print with laser printers, which was a very important thing. When we made the earlier prototypes, the material required for us to use inkjet printer, and the material was glossy. It was problematic because even after the ink was dried, it was a bit sticky and was...

Metro Fitter introduces a new way to enjoy daily commute by personalizing the Metrocard with your Instagram pictures. My teammate, Myn Kang and I came up with this idea of Metro Fitter, which is an adhesive layer that goes on top of the metrocard with Instagram pictures or design images printed. Metrocard is a great souvenir for the tourists, but for New Yorkers, it is something that they can...
Meeting with Chris Poole Pt. 1
I had a chance to have a chat with Chris Poole, the founder of Canvas and 4Chan on a thursday afternoon. Instead of meeting him at a cafe, I visited the office of Canvas on the 19th street with two lemonades. I was introduced to Chris over an email through Christina , one of our Entrepreneurial Design teachers. I asked Chris if we can have a chat, and he said “sure.” Good start. The...

About a week ago, I wrote a blog post called Going from ‘greed is good’ to ‘greed for good” on the role of an innovator based on Fast Company’s interview with Vijay V.

Going from 'greed is good' to 'greed for good.'
I read an interesting article of FastCo.’s interview with Vijay Vaitheeswaran, an award winning correspondent for The Economist, who has recently wrote a book called Need, Speed and Greed: How the New Rules of Innovation Can Transform Businesses, Propel Nations to Greatness and Tame the World’s Most Wicked Problems. He touched upon many different topics, from education, capitalism, to...
Why do people love social network?
My curiosity towards social network and the psychology behind the minds of people who love using social networks has grown since I became an avid(considering my past usage) user of twitter. There is one thing I found out about the relationship between different personality types and social networks. On social networks, the introversion and extroversion rule does not apply. I got to talk to...
Side effect of social networking
So why would an innocuous thing like making a cell phone call make a person less giving? The researchers think it has to do with feelings of social connectedness. All humans have a fundamental need to connect with others — but once that need is met, say by using a cell phone, it naturally reduces our inclination to feel empathy or engage in helping behavior toward others. “The cell phone...

Working on an ipad app redesign
For our entrepreneurial design course, I have to spend at least 60 minutes acting as a worker. I decided to do it on 99designs.com. I looked through a different categories of works. I wanted to make something that can be printable, so my first choice was invitation design category. I browsed through the list, but didn’t see anything I liked. So I moved on to logo design, then I didn’t...
