2017 Radical Research Summit Designing long-term interactions with everyday media devices

The convergence of social, cloud and mobile computing has created a world in which people generate, access, manipulate, and share personal digital data at larger scales and faster rates than ever before. From digital photo albums to online music streaming services, these new technologies have enabled people to create vast archives of digital data that capture their life experiences.

These technological trends raise complex questions for UX designers. How will people live with their digital data in ways that support their evolving practices and values over time? What kinds of qualities should designers consider in crafting a longer-term place for interactive technologies and data in everyday life? In this lightening talk, I will draw on examples of connected devices I have designed and studied that offer a vision of how we can create technologies that enable people to with their digital in everyday life in rich ways over time.
