All Posts Notes from the Future of UX

by: Molly Wilson on Nov 13, 2014

Last week I went to Rosenfeld Media's UX Futures 2014 conference, a one-day remote conference with a star-studded (okay, star-studded in that dorky, fun UX way) lineup. I thought I'd share my notes from three of the conference sessions.

  • "User Experience: The First Fifty Years" by Jesse James Garrett. Jesse takes a look "back" at UX from the year 2048 and describes what's happened to the field.
  • "Expanding our Expectations of Everybody" by Margot Bloomstein. Margot uses current events (nothing I hadn't heard rehashed a million times) and historical examples (these got my attention! super interesting) to illustrate what designers can do to realize the promise of media everybody can participate in.
  • "What if Steve Jobs Wasn't an Alien?" by Steve Krug. Steve goes through some of the greatest hits of historical UX and prognosticates about the future of usability.

The conference viewing was generously hosted by Mozilla SF and organized by Julie Francis & Tony Santos.
