IxDA San Francisco Presents a Special Halloween Event at San Francisco's Armory Building home of kink.com:
Social Design Patterns
In the first half of the session, Erin and Christian will present a family of social web design principles and interaction patterns to help user experience designers and strategists grapple with the social dimensions of their products and services.
In the second half of the session, we will invite the audience to learn about designing social interfaces through an interactive, collaborative, and competitive game.
Christian Crumlish is the curator of Yahoo!’s pattern library, although he prefers to describe himself as a pattern detective. He’s a design evangelist on the Yahoo! Developer Network team and helped develop the Yahoo! Open Strategy. He has been participating in, analyzing, designing, and drawing social interactive spaces online since 1994. He is the author of the bestselling The Internet for Busy People (McGraw-Hill, 1994), and The Power of Many: How the Living Web is Transforming Politics, Business, and Everyday Life (Sybex, now Wiley, 2004). He co-hosts the blog conference on the Well and is mediajunkie on Twitter. He has spoken about social patterns at BarCamp Block, BayCHI, South by Southwest, the IA Summit, Ignite 2 (SF Web 2.0 Expo), and iPhoneDevCamp.
