Last September I visited EuroIA to get inspired on the possibilities of, and vision on ‘connected things’. With the arrival of IoT and smart devices, the job of the Information Architect changes. Not all new applications or technologies have traditional, visual interfaces anymore. This comes with many new challenges and possibilities. This year’s EuroIA taught me how to use this for good (restore the vision of ‘the good information society and by developing for all senses), to think of different types of IoT applications ( growing food, developing smart cities and monitoring cows), to make use of theories and practical tips (crafting taxonomies and using data) and many more!
During EuroIA I created sketchnotes to capture the essence and my insights of each talk. During the conference, I got many comments and compliments on my sketchnotes, which was really nice to hear! In this post, you’ll find all visual summaries of EuroIA by me.
EuroIA started amazing, with the workshop of Alastair Somerville on sensory design. He explained us how to design for senses (according to research, there are 32 senses!), to give meaning and to coat the experience with emotion. This was a great and eye-opening workshop that once again stated the importance of designing for ALL. Read more of Alastair’s work on his website: http://www.sensoryux.com/
Alistair Duff approached Information Architecture more academically. He referred to the Information Society book by Yoneji Masuda. Yonedi believed the information society would solve some of the world’s problems and would make the world a better place where people would have more time and less stress. Instead, the Information Society turned out to do the opposite. By paying attention to Alistair’s formula (PLUSS) we could turn that around and restore the original vision. Therefore we need to invest in Privacy, Leisure, Universal Access, Sustainability and Solidarity. I really liked this talk and it inspires me to invest in these pillars to make my contribution to the Good Information Society.
EuroIA #euroia16, thank you for three days of awesome, inspiring and smart talks and a perfect organization!
