Welcome to UX Book Club Sydney
Our next book is Ends by Joe Macleod and Joe will join us via video call for a discussion!
As consumers and providers we overlook the importance of healthy, coherent endings.
There was once a rich culture of reflection and responsibility, but over recent centuries this has been lost, producing a mixture of long term societal oversight and short term denial. We are left with a bias customer lifecycle that is limited to the exciting vocabulary geared strictly around all things new. Giving rise to guilt-free consumers, an overly-blamed business sector and a society which finds itself at a loss when it needs to grapple with responsibility and consumptions biggest ills.
In a world awash with start-ups and new tech, this book tells you why its critical we start considering endings.
The next meeting is Tuesday 15th October 2019 from 6:15-8:30pm at a new location:
Level 18, 1 Margaret Street
Sydney, NSW 2000
What is it all about?
Between 15 and 30 people turn up every two months to discuss a book about user experience design. It is a fun, friendly and relaxed event where you can meet other people working in the industry. The books are mostly about pure UX but sometimes we have a little fun and read something that relates to design but is not just about design.
There are heaps of meetups about UX - the bookclub is special because we get to slow things down a little and talk with each other.
