From Ego to Ergo: Using Influence in Design
We love stories, recognise patterns in a fraction of a second and have a set of highly developed social behaviours. Mike will be running through a collection of these hard-wired influence points and exploring how they can be used in the design of products, interfaces and experiences.
Settling New Caprica: Getting Your Pet Project Off The Ground
Pet projects: everybody's got them. But how many of them never see the light of day? In this talk, Tom Armitage looks at some of the obstacles that impede such projects, and how to get over them. The talk also considers some ways to streamline the process of releasing software when you're your own client, and perhaps might give some ideas to improve not only your personal projects, but your work projects as well. There should be plenty enough time for a healthy Q&A session after the initial presentation.
