I was in San Francisco over the weekend and spent part of a day at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). I particularly enjoyed a wonderful exhibit of Frida Kahlo and the time my partner and I spent on a tour with one of the museum’s docents. The docent was very familiar with everything Frida and was a good, inspirational teacher.
I also learned about the museum’s upcoming $555 million expansion project. The project is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2013 with a completion date in 2016. The SFMOMA will close down during some of this time and reopen with not only with a larger footprint but with a lot more modern art.

One of the hallmarks of good user experience is a sense of delight. Here is a story about something that delighted me.
Initially, I was a little sad to see this spork (combined spoon and fork) in my Trader Joe’s salad the other week. Even though I usually use a real fork, this looked sadly mangled. I was glad that it was inside a plastic bag so I wouldn’t have to pick bits of broken plastic out of the food.
