@nathanshedroff @daveixd @bkenna1 @impactology I mostly concur. The silo’ing we see in many organizations is bad.

But you didn’t say that silo’ing of related design disciplines is bad. You said there are no meaningful disciplinary distinctions:

“There is no difference between #UI, #UX, #IXD, etc. They are the same thing.”
@nathanshedroff @daveixd @bkenna1 @impactology Unlike @nathanshedroff, I do not see anyone advocating for silo’ing. But I do see people advocating for being dismissive of distinctions between different classes of design problems and the disciplines devoted to addressing them with appropriate methods.
@nathanshedroff @daveixd @bkenna1 @impactology My memory of the late ’90s is not UXD generalists who had been solving digital design problems well for years facing upstart territorial specialists with a lack of holistic awareness. My memory is the opposite.

This description of the sorry state of the ways we understand #UX is very, very good.

And I have some quibbles with its telling of history which I hope folks will find useful in the discussion already brewing around this piece.

I have an old telling of the history of #UX design which takes a different slice through things and focuses on the way that it bound together different tribes of practice in an overlapping space of work

2/
An important thing which I see present but unspoken in Max Taylor’s telling of #UX is WHY the term emerged when user experience has been a question in products and services since long before the expression “user experience” was coined

(Psst! It’s the SOFTWARE!)

Let me tell you about the time I rage quit a tech study because it was #toorapey

we're going to call this the rapey noise study™

what's the rapey noise study™, you ask? great question!

it's a (not good) study about interacting with a computer using your brain by focusing on a noise while other noises are playing.... [look ma, no hands!...]

A fantastic thread on specific examples of breeding applicable interdisciplinarity.

In fact, I think we can go further, and designers can help.
There's a trend here.

In a lot of different environments, designers are realizing there's useful and powerful theories, insights, and communities from disciplines they never considered; and there happens to be a reactionary clash from the communities who live in that space.
We have an opportunity here.

Sometimes that clash is valuable, because it offers space for people to acknowledge, voice, and catalyze a community to make their knowledge known.

But sometimes, we can connect without friction, and towards a collective goal.

I'm a few years behind the curve; y'all still do follow trains?

Well, I'm starting one. Let's do one about #equitydesign.

@albanvillamil asked if I knew people, places, and tools for equity and design, and I wanted everyone to know everyone.

Spread the word! (1/million)
That being said, like equity work, this isn't (and arguably can't be) the definitive

Equity is a verb, like @_ChristineOrtiz says, so my hope is this is only the beginning.
I tried to get everyone's resources and descriptions correctly, but if there's anything wrong, feel free to correct me! (Crit's in our blood, right?)

Feel free to add, amend, include, and let's get to know each other. Cool? Cool.

Kicking off day 1 of #ODSCWest. I'll be tweeting through the next few days and pinging #GCDigital folks for interest or potential follow-up. #opensource #DataScience #openeducation @School_GC
First up: @asuonline will be hosting an educational analytics conference in March 2019 focusing on what we can learn from learner data and how to structure learning to better meet learner needs. #ODSCWest
#AI differential - being able to tailor products to specific users == better able to predict value to and from users. E.g. cost to deliver value to user vs. cost to company to deliver that value. Allows ruthless competitive focus - @DataRobot #ODSCWest

THREAD: Usability insights requested from those who like word games and puzzles ! Please follow along with me for a bit of exposition, then provide your input! (1/17) #Puzzles #WordGames #UI #UX
(2/17) Imagine you're using a new tool to search for solutions to word puzzles. One thing this tool lets you do is discover pairs of words in which two consecutive letters anywhere within one word are reversed in other words.
(3/17) For example, "dairy" & "diary", "united" & "untied", "geocentric" & "egocentric", and "unclear" & "nuclear" share this property.

⬇️ Thread de mes sites autour du #design, #inspirations, #graphisme, etc.
N'hésitez pas à ajouter vos sites pref, je vais essayer de les organiser par catégories.
Onglet #Tools > #photos libres de droit et gratuites. Mes préférés sont @PexelsPhotos et @unsplash qui ont le mérite de pas ressembler à des photos de banque d'image lambda et sont souvent très jolies. pexels.com & unsplash.com
En fait, mon problème principal c'est que je bosse rarement sur des projets qui requièrent les superbes photos d'Unsplash... Haha. Comme d'hab, on vérifie quand même la license correspondant à chaque photo.
