  1. 149- Of Mice And Men | 99% Invisible

    If you are looking at a computer screen, your right hand is probably resting on a mouse. To the left of that mouse (or above, if you’re on a laptop) is your keyboard. As you work on the computer, your right hand moves back and forth from keyboard to mouse. You can’t do everything you need to do on a computer without constantly moving between input devices.

    There is another way.

    A device called a “keyset” could help us navigate virtual environments without moving your hands back and forth. With the mouse in your right hand, the keyset would occupy your left hand. Its five buttons resembled piano keys.

    Doug Engelbart invented the keyset in the 1960s. Engelbart was also the person who invented the mouse.

    • Thinking "outside in" using customer insights to innovate
    • Speaking with "one voice" despite having many stakeholders
    • Defining the core essence of the product you’re bringing to life
    • Building outward from this center point
    • Committing to greatness and making the time
    • Understanding when to putt and when to drive the ball forward

  6. Sandi Wassmer — Inclusive design is for everyone

    Inclusive Design is currently the domain of people who design physical things, like product designers and architects, but Sandi Wassmer is firm in her belief that Inclusive Design applied in the online environment just makes sense.

    The principles of Inclusive Design encompass so many of the practices, principles and guide lines that web designers are already using – Accessibility, Usability, User Centric Design, Progressive Enhancement and User Experience – but unlike each of these dis­crete practices, Inclusive Design gives desigers the ability to offer choice, as a single design solu tion will never accommodate all users.

    Sandi will talk about how the principles of Inclusive Design can be easily adopted by web designers right now. By the end of the session you’ll have the frame work for becoming an inclusion activist!
