SPEAKEASY #4: How methods make designers
☞ Saturday, 2 September 2017, 6.30 – 8.30 pm
Rum & alcohol provided, for those who attended Town Hall. BYO if you like.
Speakeasy is our experiment in casual, intimate gathering to share knowledge, experiences, tips, and gossips, while also honing our skills in critical thinking, debates, and articulation, in English language. It is a closed-door session, designed to increase openness of discussion, allowing ourselves to discuss matters requiring secrecy and make mistakes. And yes, in a nod to its use during the Prohibition years, it serves some alcoholic beverages.
This time we’ll be discussing this text: Seyram Avle, Silvia Lindtner, Kaiton Williams, “How Methods Make Designers“, in CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, 2017, pp. 472–83 <https://doi.org/10.1145/3025453.3025864>
The text is chosen in anticipation for our upcoming Surabaya Design Summit, challenge us to critically think about our own perceptions and methods, while also observing various parallels and contrasts in other countries. It is quite a long text, so we’ll skip some of the sections.
By invitation only. If you wish to extend courtesy of attendance to someone outside of this email thread, please inform firstname.lastname@example.org by 31 August 2017. Thanks.
