Etech day 2 Maribeth Back

Maribeth Back
Human experience of reading
Human experience of the built environment
Not about the usual suspects – blogs, IM, ebooks, SMS, email
The “ing” behind the Thing
The Thing behind the thing: Platonic ideal
The –ing behind the thing: human experience
We read for different reasons
Text is image
The geometries of reading: physical and conceptual structures
- social geometries of reading, embedded in surroundings (such as the built environment), creates a compelling, immersive experience
Unspoken social fabrics – the relationships created and changed by reading together [remember Jeff Han’s “playing in parallel” Jeff points out his TraceEncounters]
Experiments in the future of reading, tech museum of innovation, san jose
