Hi Rob, sorry I missed this. I also missed you guys at the last mixer--maybe next time. My webpage by the way is http://tammy.jarocki.org, I'm an Illustrator and graphic designer (oh, and a chemist by day, these days it pays the bills)
Hi Rob. GLG is like a matchmaker for groups that need some type of expert consultant (typically investment institutions) and experts.
Smart energy apps, to me, are a new genre of interfaces that mostly don't exist yet, but seem inevitable. Concepts like the smart-grid rely on a great deal of consumer comprehension and interaction with things like daily fluctuations in the electricity market. The fact that brand new concepts like this are being introduced along with new platforms and hardware for the purpose of saving the planet/economy is very exciting to me and I'm looking for people to talk to about ideas.
It's my new consultancy - just getting started as an independent user experience architect and project leader. I have a couple of clients and now that SXSW is over, I should be able to scrape together the time to get a website started :).
