So New: In Which Dale Herigstad Speaks at Ball State (31 of 90)

On Tuesday night, Dale Herigstad came to Ball State University as part of the Letterman Speaker Series. (Here he’s decked out in his best Neo-Preacher Future Man outfit, which rocked.)

The series, which brought in Twitter co-founder Biz Stone, is one of the coolest parts of my job.

As it turns out, Herigstad – the chief creative officer of Schematic – is friends with Katz, my friend from Sheffield, England who is staying with me this week. So we – along with the dean and associate dean of my college – grabbed a bite to ea at Amazing Joe’s before his presentation.

Herigstad is on the cutting edge of interface design. Which may sound a bit dull. Except interface design is pretty much at the heart of everything in a digital, networked age. (Check out Keiichi Matsuda’s website to see exactly what I’m talking about.)

So, you know, just another night in Muncie, Indiana.
