IxDA London: Serendipity

17 October 2012 from 6:30pm to 9pm

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

Join the local London chapter of the IxDA and Seren Partners for an evening of talks by Oli Shaw and Stephann Makri on serendipity.
Oli has been researching Serendipity for the past couple of years and has shared his finding at various events in the past (See Martin Belam's post). He has been looking at the components that go into engineering serendipity, and has been putting them into practice with some of the projects he has been working on.
His talk will try and show though some experiements, just how we can include the possibility of designing systems that create opportunities for users to have experiences they might perceive as unexpected, insightful and/or valuable (and therefore potentially as serendipitous). Be prepared to get involved, as this should be an interactive session.

Stephann will talk about his findings from interviews with people who routinely take actions to influence serendipity. He'll talk about how interactive systems can support these actions to create opportunities for users to have experiences they might perceive as serendipitous.
