David Weinberger

The Web was social before it had social networking software. It just hadn’t yet evolved a pervasive layer of software specifically designed to help us be social. a new class of application, unsurprisingly called “social software.” But what sort of sociality were we looking for? That was the theme of Clay Shirky ’s 2003 keynote at the ETech conference, the most important gathering of Web developers of its time.

Anticipating the Next Wave of Experience Design

John Hagel

Experience design has emerged in part as a response to this growing need we all have.   It is no longer enough to design products and services so that they have aesthetic appeal and perform well.    We are on the cusp of another major shift in the focus of experience design, one that moves far beyond the impact of individual products and services. The design challenge becomes how to design experiences that maximize flow.

[liveblog] Judith Donath on designing for sociality (“Social Machines”)

David Weinberger

Judith Donath is giving a book talk to launch The Social Machine. I read it this weekend and it is a rich work that explores the ways in which good design can improve our online sociality. Judith begins by saying that the theme of the book is the importance of online social interaction and designing for it. Our interfaces may look sophisticated but they’re primitive when it comes to enabling social interaction. It slowed down a lot of social design.

The Future IMS Learning Design

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. I have been looking at the world of social networking, and my mind is moving away from the model where we are the experts and package the knowledge and sequence it. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it.
