I recently spoke at Media Evolution 2011 at Malmö in the beautiful southern parts of Sweden. My talk was loosely based around the theme: ‘Seeing the Future through User’s eyes’ and I presented my thoughts on the ‘IxD Bauhaus’, design evolution, Kevin Kelly’s ‘What Technology Wants’ and concepts related to object-envy, nostalgia during the design process etc.
There were several really incredible presentations at the conference. My favorites were the keynote speeches by Paolla Antonelli and Amber Case, presentations by Luke Williams, Riyad Minty and several others.
Massive thanks at Media Evolution organizers, especially Martin Thörnkvist and Yasemin Arhaan Modeer for a fantastic conference. I had the honor of sharing the stage with some of the brightest minds around, learnt a lot about public speaking and also made some great friends. Thanks!
