Designing Mystery: Mystery vs Magic - Anticipation vs Wow.

I have read with interest the thread on Exploring the Magic of Design
(http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=46102) and thought I'd start a
related thread on mystery by posting a link to a blog post...


I'd be interested in responses to this post from other fields of
interaction design.

I have been running closed workshops on Designing Mystery since 2002
and have only r

Dear CEO:


Recently there have been a number of threads about how to present the
argument for UX design to a company. In response I have put together the
following outline for a presentation. What improvements can you add?

User Experience Design is an enormous opportunity for our company. It will
allow us to be more competitive and more profitable. With the right strategy

Five Lenses: Towards a Toolkit for Interaction Design

Well, I am not sure how valuable such very abstract essays are. It sure
doesn't help most practitioners in their daily work. I'd even doubt that the
'theorists' have much to gain from this essay. A lot of this kind of
'de-constructionistic theories' (not sure of that is proper English...:-)
lead to a 'analytic view on (a part of) the world' and they are only in some
cases useful for the 'construction' of new things in the world of
'interaction design'.

In other words, what is the problem that this essay addresses? That there
isn't a unified theory for interaction design? Do we need one?

"Narcissism of small difference"

So what's the idea behind ''Massive Change'' [1]?

Bruce Mau: There's a design revolution coming out of North America. It dares
to imagine the welfare of the entire human race.

You mean, like the iPod?

Bruce Mau: No. It's not interesting to me. One of the most important things
we did was take the visual out of design.


Let's hear it from the Canadians, anyone seen it yet? Posturing?
