Blogging About Bathrooms
This week I’m participating in the annual Bathroom Blogfest, joining up with 22 other bloggers from around the globe write about the importance of bathrooms in the customer experience. Why bathrooms?
Because bathrooms express cultural and design values loud and clear. Nobody wants a bad bathroom experience (insert shudder here.) When bathroom design doesn’t support user needs...

Why I love my completely inefficient bathroom
The Home Bathroom
I recently moved, and now I have a new bathroom. It’s completely new…new construction, new fixtures, and as a result…new habits. I have to say, the master bath has “wow” factor. I also have to say that it’s very clear that it was designed with a total disregard of efficiency and usability. And yet, I love it. How can that be? Read more...

There are a lot of great cultural indicators and collaborative spaces in the Adaptive Path office. But my favorite is still the bathrooms. Bathrooms as culture? As collaborations? Um...huh? Read more...

Bathroom Blogfest '07: My Favorite Ladiesroom Around Des Moines
Why? Because they have clean, roomy facilities - and plenty of them. I’ve never seen a waiting line there! The stalls are stocked with ample supplies and there are hooks and shelves for your belongings. There’s a lounge to relax in and make a free local phone call. There’s a separate ...

Bathroom Blogfest '07: What About Those Sprayers?

Review: Restrooms in Iowa

Knowing where to go if about town and suddenly feeling the necessity of a restroom stop is important. I appreciate being able to make use of facilities if I have an hour walk ahead of me. In the heat of summer this information is...

My Greatest Accomplishment Last Year

I know I should probably have on my list of accomplishments for last year things like - established a wiki for class, answered reference questions via facebook, revolutionized the way graduate students are tracking new research by demonstrating RSS feeds. But no. Really, my greatest accomplishment (with most of the credit to Isabel) was getting shelves installed on the back of stall doors in the women's bathroom...

Just say NO to hand dryers

When it comes to women's bathrooms, I do know more than my boss, who is a man. Interestingly I rarely disagree with him about facilities - because he's usually right and I'm usually wrong. But when it comes to women's bathrooms - I am the expert....

I think a man designed this

This is the sink in the women's bathroom of the new Gleason Library. At first I thought "yeah". The gunky pink soap will go directly into the sink rather than on the counter like it does in all the other bathrooms. ...
