It’s been a long time between drinks, but today our Slack channel lit up with an interesting Ask the UXperts session led by Jorge Arango, author of Living in Information.
Jorge explained that over the past couple of decades we’ve been moving many of our key social interactions from the places where we have experienced them in the past — physical environments — to a new type of environment: one we enter through these “small glass rectangles we carry about in our pockets”.
In Jorge’s words, those of us who design these new “user experiences” have greater responsibility — and greater agency — than designers who’ve come before. As such designers, Jorge urged us to think about _How might we design information environments that better support our needs as a society in the long term?_

If you’re interested in seeing what we discussed, or you want to revisit your own questions, here is a full transcript of the chat.
