Your Digital Wardrobe: Studying Tech Use Over Time— Friday, October 18 3PM @ Design’s Burns Auditorium
Your laptop, Alexa, phone, Nest, Roomba, baby monitor, Smart Doorbell — our devices weave in and out of our daily activities. But what happened to the ones we had five years ago? Ten years ago? Our devices mediate relationships, memories, events, and more; and every time we add, drop or change devices, the way we view ourselves shifts just a bit. During this session we’ll look at the chronology of our digital wardrobes and how to study our relationship with technology.
Please bring your questions to the meetup!
Leah Kaufman has been senior UX research manager at Lenovo since 2015, leading a team of 5 researchers who study and test the usability of Lenovo's websites world-wide. She has been UX since before it was "UX", studying cognitive psychology at U. Washington in the late 80s, working on Microsoft’s usability team through the 90s, and doing UX research in Seattle’s start-up scene and at Getty Images.
As always with our meetups, this is not a "sit back and listen" meeting, but a chance for us to bring together a cross disciplinary group of people to think about the relationship between UX, technology, and design. Mostly though, we'll get to know one another, and have some fun. If you'll come, please RSVP!
