My talk for Interaction 12 in Dublin, Ireland.
Another 10-minute, abbreviated talk.
Nice presentation Andrew, I wish I could have seen it live!
I think your point is that there are a lot of “things” above the *task* level that affect the context of the user? If so, I very much agree.
I started to explore this a few years ago with this diagram:
But now that I look at it again, I find the “about the situation” cloud lacking – it needs more context (ha ha) to account for the problem the user is trying to solve (consciously or subconsciously) and for the emotions the user is having about the situation.
Hmm. Seems a core insight is that product-making cultures tend to make products that reflect their own worldviews, rather than that a misplaced focus on goals leads to irrelevant experiences [though this is also true]. I think there’s lots of opportunity for the typically outstanding inkblurt take on this topic – and I’m too lazy to take it on at the moment :)

If I was a celebrity I would have bodyguards everywhere I went. I even know where I would find the services of my Bodyguards NYC. They would be at the top of the line.
I have a lot of respect for anybody who protects the public. That is why I am so happy to know these Manhattan Security Guards. They are the best Manhattan security guards that anybody could meet.
I needed a nutritionist to help deal with my bourgening fat problem. I hired a nutritionist malvern pennsylvania to deal with it. Now I'm all better.
I remember the time I changed my course of study to become a dietitian in Malvern pennsylvania. I almost became a Dietitian Malvern Pennsylvania when I had a change of mind. I ate a box of cookies instead.
The bank account is empty. My nights are rough without a Bankruptcy Attorney Phoenix to provide some cosure. Now I'm living in a loft.
I need an attorney for my laons. When I couldn't pay them back I knew I had to find the best Bankruptcy Attorney Phoenix or I would die. Hopefully I can survive this.
