UX and the Human Spirit: Three Stories of Connection

A session at Interaction12

Saturday 4th February, 2012

1:55pm to 2:05pm (DMT)

The human spirit is the part of us that feels a sense of deep connection with something larger than ourselves — whether it be nature, a deity or other being, a group of people, a cause, or the Universe. Our use of technology may foster such a sense of connection — or work to its detriment. I will tell three stories from my own experience, two as a user of technology and one as a professional doing UX work. I will invite the audience to share their own stories with me afterwards.

UX is work of the human spirit.
