Everyone is running into each other. People are actually hurting themselves. And the Internet is exploding. Yep, Pokémon Go is giving Augmented Reality (AR) its big moment.
This is how disruptions in technology often happen: a technology is developed to serve a niche market, until it hits an inflection point and achieves mass appeal. It’s so common there’s an entire hype cycle built to document it. And then it gets old (I know I’m tired of hearing about the “Uber of X” phenomena).
Over the past two years I’ve had exposure to a lot of different approaches to project management, and in my more recent leadership roles I’ve been thinking a lot about how poorly many projects are managed. Much of what seems to fuel the poor approaches to project management I’ve seen is an over zealous adoption of outmoded […]
This week I’ve contributed a blog post to TCG’s Artistic Innovation blog salon, curated by Caridad Svich, as part of the 2013 TCG National Conference: Learn Do Teach. The original blog post is here. I’m really pleased to have been invited to share my thoughts on the ways in which artists might be performing evolutionary […]
Yesterday I finished a really good SCRUM training with Stacia Viscardi that has been stirring something in my brain that has (on the surface) very little to do with Scrum. At one point over the two-day course she asked us what single thing we’d like to change about our working style or workplace. I said […]
This post might be slightly incoherent from jet lag and the swirl of being in two worlds at once. Apologies in advance. We had a productive first day at the Tramway today where Proto-type are working on a big music-driven, performance piece in a very big space. I’ve wanted to make a really large-scale show […]
Over the past week I’ve been reminded of how notions of privacy have shifted since the mass adoption of the always-on, mobile Internet and portable (tiny), ubiquitous video and photo capturing devices. It has been clear for some time now that we live in an age where there are very few places where our private thoughts, actions, words and […]
Some memories get lodged permanently in a way that play on repeat, unexpected, at surprising moments. For me this is one: 8:44 am I step out of the subway station at Union Square NY at the exit that leads onto Broadway and 17th Street. I have a RIO500 player and I am listening to Blondie. […]
a dramaturgy of experience draws on research into dramaturgy to help understand how digital encounters in the physical world are engineered and ordered, particularly by theatre artists, and received and enacted, particularly by participant/audience members.
Yesterday, I presented my paper at TAPRA and it went down pretty well, I think. Presenting it to an audience of 8 or 9 people and having only a few brief moments of discussion about it, though, has made me really think about the impact of academic work on the wider world and about what […]
I am at TAPRA today preparing to give my talk about technology and intimacy. I’m also trying to decide which color of the new Furbies I should buy… Check out the video of it being demonstrated from endgadget: It looks pretty amazing/demonic. I’m sure Sherry Turkle will be buying a few dozen to unleash on […]
