A Primer in Social Media

Although definitions vary, a few key characteristics are common amongst social media platforms. Most of these properties thrive on the notion of participation and making connections. Part of this is informed by the notion of a flat community, in which all parties engage in open dialogue. Influence and credibility are prized in this arena, as the user’s reputation can often be a key motivator for one to remain active in the dialogue.

Kohler Karbon Faucet

With its clean, crisp lines, the Karbon articulating faucet introduces a new geometry of versatile functionality to the kitchen. Intelligently engineered to hold any pose for hands-free operation, Karbon allows you to streamline your work surfaces and workflow. You can extend the faucet fully to fill large pots, lower it into the sink for food preparation and cleanup, fold it compactly out of the way when not in use, or position it anywhere in between.

Monocle: design notes

if you’re interested in the honest craft of website work, almost deliberately old-fashioned ‘classical’ web design - and how to ally this with innovation in magazine publishing - the following should provide a decent account of several of the key decisions in this particular project.

How do you like your eggs?

eggs.jpg

I enjoy making people laugh, but more than ever I like making people think too. I hope this piece evokes some kind of humorous and yet thoughtful feeling about breakfast in bed. My work is sometimes playful, and by playful I mean I play on the edge of what may start to produce mixed feelings. However, I never intend on offending the viewer, my aim is to go beyond the image creating a story and a thoughtful atmosphere.

We are borg

By 2020 the terms "interface" and "user" will be obsolete as computers merge ever closer with humans. It is one prediction in a Microsoft-backed report drawn from the discussions of 45 academics from the fields of computing, science, sociology and psychology.

It predicts fundamental changes in the field of so-called Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).

By 2020 humans will increasingly interrogate machines, the report said.

In turn computers will be able to anticipate what we want from them, which will require new rules about our relationship with machines.

Exertion interfaces

We are going to soon carry out sports activities with our friends even when they are not in the same physical place as we are. More generally, computers will be increasingly used to persuade us to physically exercise and to make exercise more fun. At CHI 2008, Florian ‘Floyd’ Mueller and Stefan Agamanolis have organized the workshop on Exertion Interfaces which is taking place today, and I asked them four quick questions before the workshop start.
