Connection and Interaction Design

I’m not completely sure how this documentary ties to Bell Tolling, although its crux lies in the concept of connectivity (i.e. “ask not for whom the bell tolls…”). Regardless, it is well worth watching for a bit of entertainment and philosophizing. In the words of Vimeo, “[this] documentary is an exploration of the future of Interaction Design and User Experience from some of the industry’s thought leaders.” As well, I recommend perusing the blog of Blaise Agüera y Arcas, who is one of the featured speakers of the film. Besides being impressively articulate, the blog shares some insightful commentary about a myriad of topics and some wonderful restaurant suggestions for those with wanderlust. Blaise is currently an Architect at Bing Mobile, but he has been published in theoretical biology, neuroscience, and history–in addition to being the creator of Seadragon and Photosynth; truly a brilliant mind (bio).
