One weekend we were jamming and the next I was presenting some of the insights about design thinking activities (with GSJ as an example) at the World Usability Day 2012 here in Slovenia. Sadly we did not have time with Maruša to prepare a proper talk based on the latest Sustainability Jam so we presented some of the lessons learned at the Jam held in February. In the short talk, I was focusing mostly on the "making sense & gather meaning" aspects that we already discussed during the Architectures of Meaning workshop at the Pervasive 2012 conference. Together with Maruša we added some new lessons learned and focused even more on the information architecture (IA) as a tool for sense making and engaging participants.
This year's WUD was lovely also because we moved to the lovely village Dolenjske Toplice. And yes, it was a fun event, always nice meeting colleagues and friends, also met some new faces like Satja from the interesting Entia project. Thanks again to Emilija, for inviting us to share our experience. Oh, bellow is the PDF.
