About the presentation

The current state of User Experience work in software development is missing critical knowledge and critical conceptual tools necessary for understanding how large numbers of users interact with applications in the public arena.  In this talk, Chris will point out exactly what is missing, and will suggest some approaches for improving that understanding.   Along the way, he will mention some other unusual and unexpected areas of work that will be influencing software development in the very near future.
