Des Traynor: Communication and Content in Web Software

Web software is a gamble. Especially for start-ups who raise millions of dollars, all in the hope that they'll somehow motivate people to find them, interact, contribute and most importantly stick around for a few years. It's a high stakes game. On one hand there are apps like Color, Wave, Buzz, which couldn't motivate even the most die hard of users to regularly update. On the other hand there is Facebook/Twitter/Instagram with millions of users adding content every minute.

Joshua Sin: What Would Nature Do?

Nature has survived the past 3.5 billion years on Earth. It’s been mastering and fine-tuning itself to create conditions conducive to life. It has a strategy and a system that constantly adapts and evolves. It’s obviously doing something right.

What if we can solve problems like nature? Our processes and systems could self-organize, optimize rather than maximize, and be locally attuned and responsive.

Julie Baher: Why Is No One Using Your Product?

It’s easy to get caught up in the detailed design of a product, but sometimes you need to step back and look at whether people are really adopting your product. This talk will describe how we’ve leveraged Roger’s Diffusion of Innovation model and concepts from Geoffrey Moore’s Crossing the Chasm to craft a research plan that examines the “adaptability” of products.

Matt Nish-Lapidus: Ritual in Interaction Design

Ritual has always played an important part in our lives. How do designers tap into the desire for ritual to enhance engagement with products and services? This presentation will ask more questions than it answers in an attempt to start a dialog around the topic within our community. What is it about ritual that is so attractive? How does it manifest in consumer products? When can things become too easy, so easy that they loose their appeal? Is ritual at odds with usability?

Matt Morphett & Shane Morris: Switching On My Ears

Designing a hand-held device presents a number of challenges. Designing that device for use by folks with impaired physical abilities introduces another layer of complexity. Ensuring that the experience is appropriate for an audience from five year-old kids to ninety five year-old retirees controlling one of their senses is just downright difficult.

Kel Smith: Innovations in Accessibility

Despite our growing potential to augment human capability through technology, the innovation curve sometimes leaves behind people who could most benefit. We’ll call this group the “digital outcasts” (a term introduced by researchers from the University of Sussex), and they ironically reside at the epicenter of today’s most exciting developments.

Katey Deeny & Søren Muus: Celsius vs Fahrenheit - Degrees of Difference Between EU and US IxD

This presentation aims to identify and explain differences (and similarities) between how interaction design is practiced in the US and Europe. While Europeans have a rich depth of shared cultural references to draw upon amongst narrow groups, Americans tend to share broader, yet more fleeting, contemporary popular references. Shared references shape how mental models are formed, therefore these differences have an effect on how we create and communicate, ultimately influencing the design process as a whole.
