Check out Chris Sharratt’s report from last week’s Thinking Digital conference. Here’s a teaser:
“Against all expectations, it was the man from Microsoft who really got me thinking, both during his talk and since. Richard Banks is principal interaction designer at Microsoft Research’s Cambridge facility and author of the book, The Future of Looking Back. His presentation combined personal experience, qualitative research and product design, raising questions about how we experience digital data and how it differs from its analogue equivalent. Most interestingly, he talked about how we might bridge the gap between the two as a generation that takes smart phones, tablets and cloud computing for granted, comes to terms with the idea of a digital inheritance.”
