  1. dConstruct 2015: Chris Noessel

    This one gets super-nerdy. Jeremy and Chris geek out about interfaces in science fiction films, from Logan’s Run to Iron Man, applying the principle of apologetics along the way. To kick off, Chris humours Jeremy’s crackpot theory about the Star Wars universe, and to wrap up, Chris unveils a very special event taking place the evening before dConstruct.

    In his day job at Cooper, Christopher designs products and services for a variety of domains, including health, financial, and consumer; as well as teaching, speaking, and evangelising design internationally. Prior experience includes developing kiosks for museums, helping to visualise the future of counter-terrorism, building prototypes of coming technologies for Microsoft, and designing telehealth.

    His spidey-sense goes off semi-randomly, leading him to speak about a range of things including interactive narrative, ethnographic user research, interaction design, sex-related technologies, free-range learning, generative randomness, and designing for the future.

    He is co-author of Make It So: Interaction Design Lessons from Science Fiction (Rosenfeld Media 2012), and the force behind the blog

  4. Seth Godin: The New Face Of Publishing

    There are some people who just get what’s going on: faster, more accurately, and more cogently than the rest of us. Seth Godin is one of those people. A legend on the ‘net, Seth authored the most popular e-book ever written (“Unleashing The Idea Virus“) and commands speaker’s fees that run into telephone numbers.

    For Radio Litopia, however, Seth’s fee is… simply your attention.

    This is one of those shows that you’ll want to listen to many times. The wisdom is intense and the conclusions devastating. Interviewed by Litopia’s Peter Cox and Jamie Mollart, this session with Seth must count as one of our best, and most important, shows ever.
