I did a modest ‘meet the speaker’ interview with the organizers of next month’s Enterprise Search Europe conference in London — it’s published here:
Here’s an excerpt:
It turns out that you can use a very simple vocabulary to spot and describe complex patterns in searching and sense making behaviour, patterns that transcend typical boundaries like domain of use. You can also design solutions using the vocabulary; from the interaction design of workspaces, to the various data models and information structures that underlie your system. This combination of analytical and generative uses is unusual, and I wanted to share it.
And if you’re in the neighborhood of London May 13 — 17, and would like to connect to talk about search, discovery, or related topics, ping me — I’d like to meet up with some new folks for my first visit to London in a few years.
