Norman is a very private human being (hence no birthplace, for example), but this piece, written by him, is excellent.
I've retired four times: first from the University of California, San Diego (where I was founder and chair of the department of Cognitive Science); then from Northwestern University, where I was a professor of Computer Science and Design, co-directing the MMM dual degree program between the School of Engineering and the Kellogg School of Management, a program that gave students both an MBA and engineering degree, with the focus on design and operation; the third retirement was as a trustee of the Institute of Design, Illinois Institute of technology (Chicago); and the fourth was as an active member of my company, the Nielsen Norman group (I have been given the title of "emeritus" at all four places.) And, as the opening sentence of this biography suggests, I'm back at UC San Diego, but I have given word that I am stepping down from the Directorship of the Design Lab at the end of the 2019-2020 Academic year, so starting July 1, 2020, i can concentrate upon my projects and writing. (A new book? Wait and see.)
