In this talk I explore the natural propensity to think about design as something that we deliver based on device and form factor. Its a natural feeling given the connection most of us have with our devices. But what can we do to really connect *with people* and truly meet their needs? How does context come in to play and how do factors like location, time, proximity, capabilities, activities and state of mind influence the way that content is displayed and consumed?
