Designers often create designs that are impossible for engineers to implement. Rather than wait until engineers have time to implement a design, rapid prototyping tools can demonstrate whether a design works without a lot of effort. In this talk to BayCHI, Kent Brewster of Netflix shares how his prototyping work at Yahoo! and Netflix, then demonstrates how Greasemonkey can be used to create browser-side prototypes in a matter of minutes.
Kent Brewster builds cool new toys at Netflix. Prior to that he was a prototyper, technology evangelist, and pointer-out-of-security-holes at Yahoo!, where he helped to build the Yahoo! Developer Network and take Hack Day on the road. In another life, Kent was a Hugo- and Nebula-nominated science fiction writer, editor, and publisher. He doesn't write much fiction any more, but still thinks that the internet is his generation's revenge for not being allowed to go to the moon.
