Scott Jenson 'From Apple, Symbian to Google - Exploring the World of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS)'
Play • 35 min

I caught up Scott Jenson recently - Scott refers to himself as a battle scarred veteran of the software industry. 

He has been doing user interface design and strategic planning for over 30 years. He worked at Apple on System 7, Newton, and the Apple Human Interface guidelines. He was UX director of Symbian, VP of product design for Cognima, managed mobile UX for Google and was a creative director at frog design in San Francisco.

Scott returned to Google in 2013 to lead the Physical Web project and research future Android UX concepts. In 2021, Scott left Google to explore life outside.

In this episode we drill into Scott’s focus at the moment, Design within FOSS (free and open source software). We plan on recording two episodes, so this is Part 1. Part 2 will follow in early 2023.
