September 03, 2005
I have been kindly invited (thanks Sofia and Marek!) to speak at MEX 2005, the PMN Mobile User Experience conference, which will be held in London on September 6th and 7th.
It will be a great chance to meet friends I haven't seen in a while, and to let the brain stretch beyond business as usual.
On the first day I'll be giving a short "insight" talk (see below for details), while on the second day it will be the turn of a panel on Supporting User-driven Personalisation, where I'll be happily sitting not far from my dear friend Olof Schybergson.
Here's what I'll be talking about on September 6th:
"Mixed Reality Check" (2.5 Mb, PDF)
As we look around us inanimate things are slowly coming to life, veneered with layers of digital information.
From payments made by touching things to street signs that broadcast messages our belongings are moving from supporting our behaviors to developing their own.
In the brave new world mobile connected devices will be at the center of the convergence of wide-band wireless connectivity, RFID and (A)GPS-enabled applications.
They will stop being purely at the receiving end of data streams and become conduits, mustering bits from objects and infusing them into other objects.
How will all of this impact the design of mobile-mediated experiences?
Are we moving towards a world of seamless socio-economical transactions or rather towards a permission-based reality, plagued by constant confirm/cancel requests?
What new scenarios will be driven by these innovations?
