Up with Complexity!

6,770 views

Published on

A 20-minute lightning talk presented at IxDA Interaction 11 on Feb 12, 2011. The tried-and-true "Don't Make Me Think" principle doesn't always hold. Discover how carefully placed friction in an interface can actually improve user experience by encouraging people to slow down and think. Complexity itself isn’t bad; the trick is making complexity seem uncomplicated. Explore examples of websites and mobile apps that incorporate friction without frustration, with elegantly simple interfaces that nevertheless deploy complex interactions to involve users, prevent errors, improve data collection, and create more immersive experiences.

  • Yay! Slideshare re-processed the deck, and the speaker notes are now showing up. To see an outline of what I said with each slide, click the 'Speaker notes' tab just below the presentation and above the comments. The speaker notes are also part of the Keynote deck, which you can download by clicking the 'Download' button above the slideshow.

    Thanks!

  • I presented this talk at IxDA Interaction 11 conference on Feb 12, 2011. Enjoy!

    The slides don't include much text, so I included an outline of the talking points in the presenter notes. As often happens on Slideshare, it seems that the presenter notes didn't make their way onto site. Working to get that fixed. When it is, you should be able to see the speaker notes in the 'Notes' tab above this comment area.

    Until then, you can also download the Keynote file by clicking the Download link above the slideshow.

    Thanks!
    Josh
