Hi Debbie,

Just curious -- will we be getting to hear more Design Matters in 2008?

Thanks, and happy new year!

Lewis Black does this great bit about how traveling the world gives us better perspective on who we are as a nation. Having pride in our individual cities is all we have left because the face of our nation has been tarnished. I pray that in the new year we repair some of the damage our current administration has applied.

New Year's Eve is a great day to feel alive and celebrate our lives with others. Let our love reach those who believe we have no heart.

Hi Aaron--
I will be back on Jan 18th, with Chip Kidd--he will be playing music and reading from his new book. I will be announcing the rest of the line-up very very soon.

Thanks so much and Happy New Year!

Hi Debbie

How are you? I am writing in to extend my warm wishes of a blessed new year to you. After my tenure at TAXI Design Network as an Editor, I am currently providing marketing and business development consultation for National University of Singapore's design & technology company, Genometri Pte Ltd.

It is great to be speaking to you again.

I am writing in for a product review on your site. Reviews and testimonial done by Layers magazine, Photoshop for Dummies, etc:

The product, GenoPal™ from Genometri Pte Ltd is a convenient color selection software that helps designers such as yourself, select Natural colors that are comfortable for the eyes or colors that we humans were evolved to see. It achieves this by using patent pending perceptual color selection technology which selects colors according to humans' perceptive abilities rather than R, G, B values invented by color scientist.

GenoPal has enjoyed 2 million downloads since its release in June 2006.

If interested and agreeable, I will be providing you the serial number for your perusal and review expertise. I would be able to give 5 of your designers free licenses upon review, as my thank you and a little gift from me.

Let me know your thoughts. Have a nice day.

It is a spin off from National University of Singapore and is funded by NVS (NUS Venture Support), SEEDS (Govt. of Singapore) and private investors.
