I often hear people talking about Twitter as a necessary evil. They've heard it's great for telling people about their product and hearing customer feedback but they just don't get why on earth people actually enjoy using this service.
This is your class if you want to learn about using Twitter to connect with people who share your passions, as well as fill your timeline with conversation and links that inspire and inform. You want to build a community that allows you to network, talk and learn from people close to home and all over the world.

Come to class with a wifi-enabled laptop, tablet or phone with a Twitter client or web-browser pre-installed. Please have a Twitter account that has a photo and description already started.

Mair Dundon has explored many aspects of the computer world in the past 26 years. Her work has allowed her to interact with companies large and small doing interactive prototyping, user research, and programming along with interaction and product design. She started her life as a generalist with a strong background in psychology, science and art and continued her explorations with 14-years as a college-level instructor in-person and online at schools all over the SF Bay Area, and as a speaker and author on prototyping, product development and experience design.
Currently, she uses her passion for connective, natural and organic technology to inspire and ground her consulting practice in native mobile, touch-based software and product design. She also consults with several startups on lean UX and iterative product development, helping them come up with experimental frameworks and evaluation criteria for smart, focused prototyping and user testing cycles. To keep her skills relevant and nimble, Mair has begun research and development on her own products that allow training to recognize and shift out of fight, flight and freeze responses in our lives.
She discovered Twitter a bit later than some and was delighted to find that it was an amazing place for an introvert to get to know people in the UX and design communities. You can read about her discoveries on her quietAction blog. She finds her Twitter community to be the most interactive, humorous and inspiring group of humans that anyone could ever desire.
