Living in Information
talk – 15 min | Feb 8 – 12:25
As our societies move critical functions online, interaction designers need to create information environments that stand the test of time.
Digital systems — such as Facebook, Wikipedia, and your bank’s website — are more than products or tools: They create contexts that change the way we interact, think, understand, and act. In many ways, they function like places. This presentation gives designers of such “information environments” conceptual tools to help them created products and services that better serve our needs.
