Tonight I have the chance to revisit this amazing talk I listen to at UX week 2012, form Dr. Genevieve Bell. A few brain storming points that resonate with me:
Lots of open ended question in the post, and I would love to know what’s your thoughts of what the future can be. Thanks for reading. =)
Genevieve Bell | UX research at Intel
My take away: I often think the most important design input material are user filed research and user behavior analytics. But what I learn from Gene is “history” could be such an inspiring design input, that UX people can look at their products in the perspective of continues evolving human history.
Jensen Harris | The Story of Windows 8
My take away: Jensen the creator of office ribbon, come back to talk about how Windows was designed. I find fascinating about how much detail was put into crafting it, as well as how big an organizational change Microsoft have to make in order to accomplish Windows 8
Austin Kleon | Steal Like An Artist
My take away: Just a super inspiring story of how a artist grow into his possibility, by the influence of the great ones before.
Jennifer Pahlka | Citizen Experience: Designing a New Relationship with Government
My take away: Famous lady from Code for America. I think LinkedIn could actually be big part of the city improvement.
Bill McIntyre | Toy Inventing in the 21st Century: Hard Plastic vs. the Attention Economy
My take away: Love this talk, Bill is not a designer, but a toy inventor! He walks through what’s the challenge of toy industry suffering from the growth of mobile gaming and TV game. And you can clearly sees the kid inside Bill. =)
Rob Maigret | Cars, Castles, and Spas
My take away: Steve Johnson, this talk is for you, watch it! Design head of Disney Digital, Rob talk about his experience of purchasing Porch, and he observe, analyze every user interaction point. Very funny talk.
Veronica Erb | How and Why to Start Sketchnoting
My take away: People who love doodling, this talk will give you some nice tips on how to make this skill a useful tool.
Designer Bill Moggride just pass away few days ago. He is the designer of the 1st laptop, co-founder of IDEO, author of Designing Interaction
I do have the honor to sit in Bill’s classroom when I was studying IIT ID. And I will miss Bill so much. The memory is still fresh, sitting in his classroom is always fascinating, even in the year 2007, he still insist to teach by pen and paper and project his drawing in real time on the projector. He IS the living body of empathy and humanity. I remember in one design class we are designing a ID card swiping reader (using our school own ID card). In the brainstorming I step out of the room alone and taking my ID card to experiment how different angle and distance will trigger the reader. Bill just stand beside me and look at me doing it. With full curiosity in his eye and no interference. Still too much to remember about Bill. Best wishes to Bill’s family.
So here you go!
