CHCI Playdate: Changing the Rules

April 20, 2018 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am UTC-5

Changing the Rules

Deborah Tatar, Javier Tibau and Steve Harrison

In ThirdLab, we explore socio-technical systems that change the rules on how people communicate or become educated through technology in order to facilitate experiences of connectedness, conscientious interaction, and to encourage us to act more like the warm, engaged and adaptable people many aspire to be. Depending on time, we will talk about 2-3 projects: ThoughtSwap, which encourages conscientious discourse about difficult topics; FamilySong and Co-listen which reconceptualize private music as social umami; and a new (unnamed!) project that we hope will allow side-conversations during remote meetings.
