interact london 2015
Long term friend and serial guest on UX Podcast Craig Sullivan joined us after his talk “scaling stupidity”. We talked about bullshit, broken data, and how we really have to stop guessing, bury our egos and swallow our pride. We introduce you to “Little Craig”, the little nagging voice inside you telling you the truth you know is true.
Neurologist, cognitive neuroscientist and author Anjan Chatterjee joined us after his keynote presentation on day 2 of Interact london to talk about the neuroscience of aesthetics. Beauty matters. Our responses to beauty are automatic and the context we find things in is crucial to our perception of beauty.
Bigger hippos and happier humans. We talk to Pete Trainor about designing happiness. Our brains love problem solving. Making things too easy can result in us being less happy. A little bit of friction can be exactly what we need.
Steve Portigal joined us during the lunch break of day 1 to talk to us about mindfulness, self-insight and presence and how these inform how you interact with the world round you and impact on your work as a designer, ux-er, professional and human being .
Jim Kalbach talked about visualising value. How we need a reversal in business thnking and value alignment. Begin with customer needs and create shared value. Alignment of the individual and the organisation, with value as the overlap. Value centred design.
This interview was recording during the break, so there’s quite a lively “audience” in the background.
Future survival requires a reversal in business thinking: start with the experience and work out how to create value from there #InteractLDN
