9rules Design Taught At Michigan State University

I spend at least 30-40 minutes a day going through all the 9rules referrer logs, Technorati links, Google hits, etc., and the other day I came across something that really knocked me back into my seat.

An upper-level web design class at Michigan State University has the design of 9rules on its curriculum, and one of the assignments was for students to write on the class weblog what they thought of our layout, colors, typography, etc. Since v2.0 is just around the corner, it was fantastic (and a bit refreshing!) to read what real users think.

After chatting with the professor a bit, he invited me to be a guest author on the blog and answer some student questions. I started it off with a quick bio, so let’s see how many people laugh at the fact I was still in college about 8 months ago 🙂
