I gave a short (10 minute) talk called A (very) short history of ambiguity at UX Australia last week. I think it went well. Building the presentation certainly helped me to explore some ideas I’ve been trying to work through in my phd around ambiguity and affinity. Heres’ the slides, with notes. I’ll try get the recording to make the slidecast.. but I expect that’ll take a while..
I’d be very interested to hear from people working in this area, or for whom these ideas are interesting… these ideas form part of a PhD I’m currently undertaking. I’m getting ready to turn into the longish second last leg, where you work out wtf you’re really on about, and how you might communicate this coherently to someone who isn’t … well, you.
As I also mentioned before, I was happy to see that I could do it coherently in under 10 minutes
