Living with information is an inherent part of life these days. Sites like Facebook, Wikipedia or your bank’s website are more than products or tools – they create contexts that change the way we interact, think, understand, and behave. In many ways, they function like places.
Thinking about them like this gives designers of these information environments some conceptual tools to help them create products and services that better serve our needs.
- Where: Our dedicated ‘Ask the UXperts’ Slack channel (You’ll need to request an invitation if you haven’t yet joined our Slack channel)
- When: 3pm Thursday 18 October PST or 9am Friday 19 October AEDT (or find out what time that is for you)
Meet Jorge Arango
Jorge Arango is an information architect and strategic designer. He partners with product, design, and innovation leaders to create digital places that make people smarter. In addition to his consulting practice, Jorge also teaches, writes, and speaks at global design conferences.
Some Questions to Inspire You
- Can software UIs create contexts that influence how our users think and act?
- If yes, do we have more responsibility as designers of these kinds of systems?
- Are there wider implications of our work that we might not consider?
How to Ask Your Questions
If you can’t make the live session but have questions, we’d love to collect them ahead of time and we’ll ask Jorge on your behalf. You can ask them in the comments below. We’ll publish the responses (along with the full transcript) in the days following the session.
How does Ask the UXperts work?
These sessions run for approximately an hour and best of all, they don’t cost a cent. We use a dedicated public Slack channel. That means that there is no audio or video, but a full transcript will be posted up on here in the days following the session.
