UX Week 2014 Keynote Josh Clark on the Future of Digital Product Design

Adaptive Path

Josh is the author of the book Tapworthy: Designing Great iPhone Apps, and frequently gives workshops and talks at conferences around the world. In this interview, Josh and I talk about the current trends in digital product design, and where those trends might be heading.

hyper-connected pattern seeking

Harold Jarche

From a recent post by the BBC : Crucial in surviving all of these unpredictable variables is the use of network design tools – software suites that can simulate what happens at the point of disaster. Here is more confirmation that work is learning, and learning is the work.

Designing outside your comfort zone

Adaptive Path

That’s what we tell ourselves because as designers we often rely on tried and tested tools, methods and standards to help us arrive at a solution that should work. They may sound like best practices for just being a good designer, and they are. “Trust the process!”.

Idiots, Networks and Patterns

Harold Jarche

The Physics of Finance: The more chaotic our environment & less control we have, the more we see non-existent simple patterns , or as Valdis Krebs pointed out, seeing fictitious patterns in random data is called “ apophenia &#. Igoe and Mota point out that digital manufacturing is beginning to do to manufacturing what the Internet has done to information-based goods and services. Tweet Here are some interesting things that were shared via Twitter this past week.

Collective intelligence patterns

Clark Quinn

In his presentation on The Landscape of Collective Intelligence, he comes up with four characteristics of design patterns (or genes, as he calls them): What (strategy), Who (staffing), How (structure & process), & Why (incentives/alignment). This is a really nice systematic breakdown into patterns tied to real examples. The implications for informal learning are obvious, I’ll have to think more about formal learning.

How Autism can Influence Design: In conversation with Steve Silberman

Adaptive Path

The book, a sweeping history of autism in both science and society, contains some powerful implications about designing for human cognition and what “normal” really means. What do you think is the future of neurodiversity in design, and in the workplace?

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

David Weinberger

I read it this weekend and it is a rich work that explores the ways in which good design can improve our online sociality. Omitting key information. Judith begins by saying that the theme of the book is the importance of online social interaction and designing for it. She uses a Mark Twain story [" Was the World Made for Man? "] about an oyster’s point of view to remind us that online design isn’t really all that evolved.

How Autism can Influence Design: In conversation with Steve Silberman

Adaptive Path

The book, a sweeping history of autism in both science and society, contains some powerful implications about designing for human cognition and what “normal” really means. From what parents have told me, it’s been really important for them because there’s so much confusing information about autism out there, like is it an epidemic? What do you think is the future of neurodiversity in design, and in the workplace?

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

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. Instead of trying to systematize, to sequence, a more appropriate approach is based around patterns and connections. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it. So, what is the future of learning design?

Edge Perspectives with John Hagel: Retailers and Customers

John Hagel

Almost a decade ago, I detected an intriguing pattern regarding the unbundling and rebundling of firms (purchase unfortunately required). Of course, the pace and trajectory of unbundling (and related rebundling) differs across industries and geographies – the patterns are complex and fractal.

Dimensions of difficulty

Clark Quinn

Addressing complex product complaints can be much more complex. That could be trying to put information into the world if possible. Using our brains for complex pattern matching and decision making is likely better than remembering arbitrary and rote steps. design strategy

leads to questions about designing learning for the future - reference to the old ''cranking ifo into students'' heads diagram - claims about the future: - work at own time, place, etc - computers will revolutionize learning - along came MOOCs - investment in MOOCs: $100M - will take time but will have a major impact - why things will change.

Supporting our Brains

Clark Quinn

One of the ways I’ve been thinking about the role mobile can play in design is thinking about how our brains work, and don’t. Technology, for instance, is bad at pattern-matching and meaning-making, two things we’re really pretty good at. design meta-learning mobil

Three Mobile User Experience Trends to Watch in 2009

Adaptive Path

Design decisions were largely based on product design; user interface was an afterthought. Whether the cleverness of parallax sliding on of the Android G1 UI, the whimsical transitions of the HTC Diamond, or the “gosh that’s cool” response to applications like Koi Pond and Urban Spoon , these interfaces introduced UI design that was clever, creative and intuitive. 2009 will be the year inspired mobile UI design goes mainstream.

Farming the meatware

Euen Semple

When I am asked what the next big thing on the web will be I say patterns. We have increasingly been opening up and sharing stuff, which is in itself useful and interesting, but the real benefits start to come when we make sense of the patterns that this activity shows us. We know that Facebook makes its money out of the information we share and the patterns that that information makes.

Can AI Help Translate Technological Advances into Strategic Advantage?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

This has been a particular issue with information technologies in general, including the Internet and AI. We all thought that the Solow paradox was finally behind us when IT-driven productivity surged between 1996 and 2003.

Avoiding Half-baked Personas

Adaptive Path

In that tension is the power of personas as a design tool but it is also their greatest potential weakness. Too much fiction leads to misguided design. Too little fiction leads to uninspired design. The key to good persona work is understanding the strengths and dangers of intuition at different stages of the research and design process. They are a phase in a process and should never be used to make design decisions.

Has AI (Finally) Reached a Tipping Point?

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

AI suffers from what’s become known as the AI effect : AI is whatever hasn’t been done yet, and as soon as an AI problem is successfully solved, the problem is no longer considered part of AI. “The same pattern will continue in the future,” notes the report. “

Reflections on Storytelling

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In particular, storytelling is widely used in the development of brands for products and services as well as companies. . Our main job was to figure out the business value of the Internet, what we should advise our clients to do and what new products and service needed to get developed.

Initial working on identity

Dave Snowden

One of my best ever Opera experiences was back in 1986 when I went to what looks to have been the only production of Harrison Birtwhistle’s brilliant Mask of Orpheus. Context triggered such as in a crisis where wholly different patterns of expectation and interaction form without design.

Sensemaking and the power of the humanities

Harold Jarche

We can think of sense making as as the exact opposite of algorithmic thinking: it is entirely situated in the concrete, while algorithmic thinking exists in a no-man’s land of information stripped of its specificity. Is Design Thinking actually sensemaking? What is Sensemaking?
