  3. The Future of Noise

    In the last German election, every major party had a policy on dealing with noise pollution. Increasing urbanisation and automation look like making the future an increasingly rowdy place.

  4. Designing with Sensors

    How do we utilize sensor and user data to create experiences in the digital world? We all know that smart devices have sensors, but how can we use this as a resource to acquire information about the user and his environment? And how can we use this information to design a better user experience that is both unobtrusive and transparent? The simple answer: we create adaptive systems.

    Join speaker Avi Itzkovitch to discover core concepts for utilizing smart device technologies and sensor data in order to understand context, and add “adaptive thinking” to the UX professional’s toolset when designing experiences. In his presentation, Avi will demonstrate the importance of context when designing adaptive experiences, give ideas on how to design adaptive systems, and most important, inspire designers to think how smart devices and context-aware applications can enhance the user experience with adaptivity.

  6. Freelancers: You’re Five Products Away From Freedom

    If you’re a freelancer, you know that your existence comes down to chasing after lots of client engagements, projects, gigs, whatever you want to call them. If you stop working for any reason (illness, travel, you just want or need a break) then the income stops. Adding products to the mix can be a really great way to add small (but potentially large!) streams of income that you can count on month after month. I’ll talk about using your talents and strengths to create products (ebooks, themes/templates, photography/artwork, plugins/apps, membership sites) that will appeal to an audience and generate sales. Remember, even if you only create a $100/week product, it only takes 5 or 6 of those to really start making a big difference in the way you work and live. This isn’t about creating a "four hour workweek" or some other hyped BS, this is about creating repeatable, realistic income streams.

  10. Annie Leonard: The Story Of The Story Of Stuff

    When you look at a chair what do you see? Perhaps you see a chair. What does Annie Leonard see? "It looks like mahogany or teak I wonder if it came from Indonesia or Malaysia I wonder if the Penang people got kicked off it looks like it’s PVC it could be leaching phthalates those endocrine disruptors there could be flame retardants— " Whew.

    Leonard’s friends told her she needed to lighten up. So the fast–talking environmental activist made a cartoon. "The Story of Stuff" is a critique of the materials economy. It explains where our stuff comes from, where it goes once we trash it, and argues we’re buying too much, trashing the planet, and making ourselves unhappy. Leonard estimates the video has been viewed 10 million times. It’s shown in classrooms around the United States, to the dismay of Glenn Beck.

    Annie Leonard spoke in her hometown, Seattle, at Town Hall on March 24, 2010. University Bookstore and the Town Hall Center for Civic Life sponsored the event.
