Core Conversation: Mobile Manners: Mobile Presence and the Undefined Etiquette

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Left to our own devices, what happens to our manners? User experience design practitioners discuss the profound effects our always-on lifestyle has had on the way we interact with people and the world. In the same old contexts, we have a whole new set of choices: Do I really have to take this? Should I just put my headphones in and pretend I can't hear them? Instead of calling mom back, can I text her? The cues and standards for how we communicate on our devices in the presence of others are just beginning to be defined. For the most part, individuals - not social norms - are deciding what is appropriate. This conversation will cover what the UE design community can do to empower the user and alleviate the fear that we are becoming isolated by our technologies. Punchcut will facilitate a discussion on contextual considerations, the formality of various mediums, and the demands of emerging ideas like mobile presence.
