[Event] Chicago IxDA --Topic: Cultural Probes --Wed Sep 10th

Hello fellow Chicagoans,

Please join us on Wednesday, Sep 10th for our next Chicago IxDA gathering!

Polly Greathouse will be presenting a talk on remote research titled
Cultural Probes. Here is a summary below:

Remote research techniques to empower people to share what really matters,
just in time

When we need to understand real-time, deeply personal experiences observing
from a distance adds value to research. Businesses, design planners and
product designers hunger for revelations about what people really do and why
they do it.

help users understand the main functions of the remove device (a
component of the product). My manager believes it is beneficial to
force users go through the tutorial and I am arguing to have a Skip
button available.

certainly becomes very useful to teach the person who set up the
