Well, I’ve had a few weeks distance from the UXPA conference in DC: time enough to recuperate and reflect. For those of you who couldn’t make it to the conference in DC, we missed you. We missed your conversation, your company at meals, your insightful presentations, your stimulating questions. And I’d like to share a little bit of what you missed in the hopes that we’ll see you very soon at another UXPA conference. (There’s one in Shanghai in November and one in London in 2014!).
This issue of User Experience Magazine explores perspectives on the future of technology, society, communication, and user interaction. In recent years, user experience researchers, designers, and others have shown renewed interest in science fiction media, applying the critical skills of our profession to the implied or stated personas, use scenarios, technology platforms, and cultural/social contexts depicted in modern science fiction.
