Everyware

Adam GreenfieldMore from New Challenges… On Saturday night a sub-group — emboldened by a smuggled bottle of wine — sketched out a new manifesto for information architecture. Outward looking, devoid of definitions, accessible to the common person. On Sunday Mr. Greenfield parachutes in to advocate for what could be the impetus to the manifestis’ work: Everyware, a vision of ubiquitous computing with a set of principles guiding and urging designers to create responsibly the electronics of every place. Adam’s in-person plea created a sense of urgency for most of us to consider how to connect our skills with devices not yet invented, that we should invent. It was the perfect compliment to Dan Brown’s questioning of human vs. technology control of content.
