The UX of Content Consumption
New formats, technologies, changing attitudes about the news, shorter attention spans, & an increasingly global experience are changing the way we enjoy content. Our free time is spent consuming content in various formats, & producers have to compete with more clutter than ever. What will the future of reading / viewing / learning / experiencing / sharing / enjoying look like?
In this Designers + Geeks, we'll bring together great designers & product thinkers to explore the changing UX of content consumption. Each will have 10-15 minutes to present their thoughts on the topic, & we'll reserve some time for discussion with the audience at the end.
