UX Bookclub Feb 23, 2012 - On a Tangent: NonUX Essays for UXers

  • Feb 23, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is no longer available

Tickets available from Thursday, 19 January at midday GMT

Following the success of our last bookclub where we read a series of essays, we've decided to repeat the format with some essays somewhat tangentially related to User Experience. The reading list is below.

Try to get started on it ASAP - you might not need to read a book but these guys still take time to read and digest.

Thanks again to LBi for hosting us - we love you LBi!

Hope to see you at bookclub soon,

Leisa

    Great essays (thanks Leisa!) and enlightening discussion about what they can teach us about UX work. The best thing for me? Ending the meet-up talking about the importance of content :)
