  1. Cennydd Bowles, Context, Bloody Context - Mobilism 2013, Day 1, Afternoon, Speaker 6

    If you’ve been in the mobile field for a while, you’re sick of context debates. Sure, they all start innocently, but soon enough they collapse into a sad tangle of metaphysics ("But what IS context anyway?"), lazy stereotypes, and implausible scenarios involving public transport. So let’s try a fresh approach. Dictionary definitions and "it depends" generalizations are hereby banned. Let’s talk details. We’ll discuss whether context even matters in modern web design, ways to find out how people will use your product, design principles for different situations, and why we’ve been looking at the whole thing upside-down anyway.

  2. Stephen Hay – Maintaining Simplicity – beyond tellerrand Düsseldorf 2014

    Stephen is one of the most calm and nice people. besides speaking, he also organizes events like CSSday or mobilism together with Krijn and PPK. In 2014 I was able to get him from Amsterdam to Düsseldorf to give a fantastic talk. Title: “Maintaining Simplicity” Description: ———————- Everyone talks about the benefits of simplicity. Yet many of us end up adding a heavy amount of complexity to inherently simple things. In fact, many web designers and developers end up spending significant amounts of project time undoing problems caused by complexities added early in the design process. In effect, we often ruin the things we build during the process of building them, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In this session, Stephen looks at how and why we complicate things, and then looks at how an exaggerated application of progressive enhancement can help us maintain simplicity and increase value for the people using the things we make. ———————- Watch this little video to get an impression how beyond tellerrand events look like: vimeo.com/69823900 MORE INFORMATION Talk & speaker bio: 2014.beyondtellerrand.com/speakers/stephen-hay/ beyond tellerrand: beyondtellerrand.com/ twitter.com/btconf

  3. The Absent Phallus and Netocracy

    Alexander Bard is a Swedish philosopher and futurist. In part 1 of our conversation, we cover some of the principles of Bard’s philosophy (co-developed with his collaborator Jan Soderqvist), including his Zoroastrianism, his critiques of Buddhism and Christianity, and the dialectics of mobilism and eternalism (the idea that the universe is constantly in flux, but in order to make sense of it we have to "freeze" it like a photograph). We then discuss mythological and ideological storytelling, exploring with examples how stories can be "phallic" or "matrichal", and consider the absence of authentic phallic storytelling in the current world. In this light we consider the environmentalist movement, the "failed messiah" Jesus, 20th century totalitarianism, the political situation in Britain and gender relations. We then turn to explore how we live at present, exploring the disconnection between age groups, the fact that more and more people live alone, and the ways that other societies measure social "belongingness". We examine the impact of the internet, examining the new digital power elite - the netocrats - and its underclass - the consumtariat. We note how most of the internet resembles a stage where everyone is talking and nobody is listening, and discuss how the winners in this …
