    Phreaking AWESOME!!!  Loved the podcast.  RJ… you hit the nail on the head about UI design and UX as art / beauty… it sells for a reason.  Have you seen Bret Victor’s “Inventing on Principal”?  He’s the guy that designed the UX for the iPad… and he’s moving on to bigger and better things.

    It’s long… but it’s soooo worth it!  Imagine applying his principal to mobile UI/UX design.  We can do better!
