It would be a tough task to call out everyone who influenced the thinking expressed here in this book. There's been an endless stream of collaborators, colleagues, instigators, and sounding boards that have helped me understand my own perspective on user experience design. However, for their early insight and influence in my more formative years I would like to thank Wayne Neale, Chris Koch, Corey Bernardo, and Mike Telek.

I would also like to thank Lucas Jordan for helping make this book possible.

Special thanks goes to Lynne Mikel for her unwavering support while this book was being written.
