Understanding Frameworks: Beyond Findability IA Summit 2010

10,186 views

Published on

Design frameworks offer substantial benefits to all parties involved in creating high quality user experiences for products, services, digital media, and the emerging interaction spaces of augmented reality, ubiquitous computing, and cross-media. Frameworks allow designers to better adapt to the rapid shifts in the digital environment by leveraging increasing modularity, granularity, and structure, and accommodating the far-reaching changes inherent in the rise of co-creative dynamics. This presentation - part of a full-day workshop delivered at the 2009 & 2010 Information Architecture Summit - identifies the elements common to all design frameworks, and offers best practices on effectively putting frameworks into practice. Altogether, it is a short course in the creation and use of customized design frameworks.

  47. “The systems we keep will be hybrid creations. They will have a strong rootstock of peer-to-peer generation, grafted below highly refined strains of controlling functions. Sturdy, robust foundations of user-made content and crowd-sourced innovation will feed very small slivers of leadership agility. Pure plays of 100% smart mobs or 100% smart elites will be rare. The real art of business and organizations in the network economy will not be in harnessing the crowd of "everybody" (simple!) but in finding the appropriate hybrid mix of bottom and top for each niche, at the right time. The mix of control/no- control will shift as a system grows and matures.” Kevin Kelly The Bottom is Not Enough http://www.kk.org/thetechnium/archives/2008/02/the_bottom_is_n.php Beyond Findability: Frameworks IA Summit 2010 | Joe Lamantia | Blend Consulting 47
