Bill Buxton's influential "Sketching The User Design" was published earlier this year, encapsulating much of the wisdom he's gained since the days of Xerox Parc through to today, where he is a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research.  Bill has been making significant contributions to the design community for a long time, and now he's helping to foster a design-oriented culture at Microsoft.

Charles Torre of Channel 9 grabbed a camera and walked over to ask Bill what it's like to be a famous designer working at Microsoft.  What's it like to be a change agent here, what are some of the highlights and challenges?  It's an interesting interview, check it out!

And if you're interested in more of the design philosophy that Bill espouses, you'll want to listen to the podcast interview Jon Udell conducted with Bill earlier in the year.  Jon delves into some of the common themes from Bill's popular CHI talks and teases out some of the themes from the book.

Of course, you can always meet Bill directly at any of the design conferences he'll be presenting at -- I counted 6 appearences in the next 2 months, listed on his upcoming events page.
