ModevUX Preview: Josh Clark Goes Deep on Human Interaction Design

It’s always awesome to get to chat with Josh Clark.  You might know him from his top selling book, Tapworthy, but Josh is also a veteran lecturer and the driving force behind Global Moxie—a creative agency working with some of today’s biggest industry innovators.

Josh stopped by the Modev podcast for a great chat—that started out about his two upcoming talks happening at ModevUX May 19-20, but quickly turned into a great conversation about the Internet of Things, human interaction design, privacy, and more, including:

Josh’s work redesigning for media giants like Time, AOL, eBay, Entertainment Weekly, and TechCrunch

New digital-meets-physical innovations in healthcare, including his recent work with Asthmapolis

What we mean by passive vs. intentional interaction in design

How we eventually, more intuitively manipulate smart objects from a distance (HINT: it’s about the object, not simply bolting on technology)

Who some of the leaders are in the digital-meets-physical revolution

The ongoing evolution of device-to-device technologies, designing for good, and privacy concerns

What we mean by ‘software is political.’

Give it a listen and let us know what you think! You can get us anytime at

Josh will be leading a 3-hour workshop – Designing for Touch – on May 19 at ModevUX and will be back on May 20 to deliver our closing keynote.
