Woohoo. Thrilled to be kicking off the new year with a international guest speaker and a great topic! Look forward to seeing you all!
About the talk Chris Noessel will be talking about the book he's co-authored with Nathan Shedroff: Make It So - Learning from SciFi interfaces. Make it So explores how science fiction and interface design relate to each other. The authors have developed a model that traces lines of influence between the two, and use this as a scaffold to investigate how the depiction of technologies evolve over time, how fictional interfaces influence those in the real world, and what lessons interface designers can learn through this process. This investigation of science fiction television shows and movies has yielded practical lessons that apply to online, social, mobile, and other media interfaces.
