We look at the things as we do at people. More so now as things are becoming more alive. Till a thing is dumb (like a rock), we only looked at it from an unemotional /un-human terms. But more and more everything is becoming interactive, alive.
Which means designers should create things that look more like people. That was my intent in creating a youtube video many years back..
The real question is how do I use this knowledge. –
1. as a hobby, reading and writing blog posts like this.
2. get trained to be hired as a user experience designer.
3. Build and own something with these principles.
I want to find opportunities of the 3rd kind. I don’t want to be an expert in this. I want to create stuff and own while learning and using these principles. My attempt to look at job search is http://www.plumdots.com.
