The Sound of Interaction Design
This presentation is on how a new generation wants social, creative, networked products, and how design can help not by identifying tasks to be productively performed, but experiences to be deepened and made fun. All told through some of our favourite things, and a series of increasingly tenuous references to The Sound of Music.
The ideas behind The Hills Are Alive with the Sound of Interaction Design were put together for our January 2007 San Francisco trip, made possible by Yahoo! (we were visiting to speak as part of the TechDev Speaker Series). While in the area, we discussed the ideas in a few other venues, notably at Adaptive Path for a public evening performance (and that’s why there are a lot of jokes about nuns).

If there’s demand, I’ll put together a single document PDF.
