The Death of Usability and Other Peeks at the Future
Recent changes in interactive aren't just variations on the same old themes--they're actually the first signs of a different world. Some of these changes are defensive and reactionary (Agile); some are progressive (the iPad and the App Store); and some are inevitable (the death of usability; the birth of the Age of Abundance). Based on some of the ideas he has encountered during his dissertation research, Troy Winfrey will sketch out some likely paths for user experience in the next five years.
After Troy's talk we'll reserve some time for discussion, and/or time for anyone who's working on a project to bring any questions or problems to the group for brainstorming.
We're working on finding sponsors for upcoming events but in the meantime we would much appreciate a $5 donation to defray refreshment costs.
