Now this is the sort of word that a smart girl who's good with words knows how to spell in Grade 2. She knows it's at the end of the sheet of words that's like the eye test at the doctor's. At a certain time each term, every student is required to go and sit with the teacher to take her eye test. "Dog, Mule, Bread." ... "Horticulture, Ambivalent, Idiosyncrasy." The smart girl who's good with words can make it to the end.
The smart girl who's good with words is friends with all her classmates. She knows all of them, and tries to befriend anyone new. There is one boy in the class who likes the way she shears (it's 'shares', but thanks! she thinks) and tells her so in one of those classroom exercises where everyone has to write one nice thing about five fellow students. It's OK because it's anonymous.
I'm an Australian designer who specialises in digital and cultural work. Most of my career thus far has been on the web, but I'm excited that it's starting to creep out into the real world.
I am the founder of Museum in a Box, making interactive museum objects with simple, fun tech, for wide-as-possible distribution, and I own a company called Good, Form & Spectacle, making design in service to cultural heritage for clients like The British Museum, MoMA, and the Wellcome Trust.
