This meetup has not been cancelled as the link from the previous email may indicate. I've merely been unsuccessful in dealing with the "bug" that is causing the meetup description to keep printing twice. I have reposted the meetup (still with the duplicate description), so please do visit the link below to RSVP for the following meetup:

What: THE DESIGN OF EVERYDAY THINGS

When: November 18,[masked]:15 PM

Where:
Firehouse Grill
750 Chicago Ave.
Evanston, IL 60202
[masked]

With Professor Don Norman
Kellogg School of Management and McCormick School of Engineering

Everything you use is designed by someone. When it is done well, it gives pleasure. When done badly, it causes grief, frustration and anger. Worse, it can lead to error, to accidents, and to severe cost in dollars or lives. What is the role that designers play in making sure that the stuff we use is effective, functional, usable, and pleasurable? And while we are at it, let?s critique those horrible designs that cause so much trouble! The bottom line is that when you have trouble working something, it isn?t your fault: it is the fault of the design.

Everything you wanted to know about design; here?s your chance to ask the expert!

This is a Science Cafe Evanston event. FREE!

Seating is limited so arrive early.
