  1. 100 hours: Matt Webb @ TEDxAthens

    Matt Webb is CEO and Principal at BERG, and co-founded the studio in 2005.

    BERG designs products for the near future: "Mag+", the magazine concept for tablet computers in 2009 with Bonnier AB, went on to become the first digital magazine platform on the iPad. And, with Dentsu London, the "Suwappu" project is inventing a new kind of digital storytelling with cute, augmented reality toys. The studio also works in its own new product invention, notably "Here & There", a new map projection of Manhattan (now exhibited in the New York Museum of Modern Art), and SVK with Warren Ellis, a comic book printed with invisible ink.

    Matt is co-author of the book Mind Hacks (O’Reilly, 2004), a popular collection of explorations into the workings of the brain. It has since been translated into 7 languages. In 2011 he was named by Wired UK as one of Britain’s top 100 digital power-brokers.

  3. Russell Davies: IOT - In Our Own Time

    Nine years ago me and a couple of friends recorded the first episode of In Our Own Time about Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    And now it’s time for episode two.

    This one’s about the Internet of Things and it features the legendary Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino and the estimable Matt Webb.

    Huge thanks to Ann Scantlebury for making the audio quality of episode two considerably better than episode one.

    Tomorrow I’ll post a bunch of links, updates and apologies to all the people we missed out but, for now, please have a listen. It’s about 40 minutes.

  4. From Pixels to Plastic

    As a point of departure, Matt Webb introduces us to the concept of Generation C, a generation not defined by age but by a mindset shaped by the internet. People in Generation C are connected in communities, are creatively involved, and like to control their surroundings.

    Designing products that appeal to Generation C involves looking at the experience that products produce and treating experience as a design surface on which to work. Using entertaining examples, Matt illustrates the colors in the experience pallet. He discusses the enjoyment we get out of watching familiar things happen, why we like to work with semi-autonomous things, and the pleasure we get from conceiving complex activities as a single object.

    This design philosophy tends to blur the boundaries between hardware, software, and the Web. Concepts like desktop widgets can be abstracted to new products that transcend the computer desktop. Pixels can become plastic.
