Episode 1: Search

This month’s episode of UXPodcast with James Royal-Lawson and Per Axbom talks about Search – its complexity and shortcomings, its evolution, and how we can deal with that evolution.

In part one – Does search work? With the introduction of social and blended search, It’s become more complex than ever to comprehend. We take a dive into that complexity, as well as it’s problems and limitations.

In part two – The evolution of searching. With social search, humans are back in the centre of search once again. We look at “T-shaped” people (with broad knowledge and a deep speciality), specialised search, and sharing relevant content on the crest of the wave.

In part three – the good will prevail. We talk about the importance of gardeners, curators, sneezers – “T-shaped people”, microformats, and give some practical tips for understanding search and how you no longer “get away with being shit”.
