Map the interactionsbetween dimensions

Published in: Design
  • Thomas- thanks for sharing this nice and well-informed presentation. The illustrations are relevant and the flow of ideas is commendable.
    I used the locks and key metaphor to explain the differences among systems' behavior. See: A creative Metaphor for Complexity.
    I agree with you fully that fractals form out of complexity.

  • Anne, serendipity happens in social tools as they are not working optimally, they haven't hit a scale where they function properly as in search or knowing of groups or interests that are available for use to find community with or in others. But serendipity is more of a state of happenstance that flows from a less than optimal service functioning.

    There have been services, I'm thinking Dopplr in particular, that optimized serendipity as its goal. Building a tools that highlights and creates seeable interactions that you didn't see as valuable before. Dopplr allowed travelers to find other's whose paths you may cross through travel in different contexts so to connect face to face. Knowing you were going to be in Atlanta the day following my being there I may stay to say hello for a breakfast meeting, that sort of thing. Seeing the unseen to increase the potential for interaction.

    When social platforms and services are starting the state of being overloaded is not a concern, but having connections is something to promote, so the focus on serendipity at this stage is helpful. Later stages intent of use commands the focus over serendipity.

  • I have seen this slide (14) on scaling and functionality several times before. Not until today did my brain get jolted in understanding and appreciating B: Serendipity.

    It is great to see that is being considered as part of systems (social systems). Most people discount the value of serendipity and others ignore it.

    Great presentation, btw.
