Kl. 23:07: Listfrćđi: Ljósmyndatćknin í list: Glósur

Sundurlausar vangaveltur og glósur

Gott lesefni: Camera Lucida: Reflections on photography (eftir einhvern gćja)

ljósmyndin er tćki sem mótar sjónskyn okkar.

Ljósmyndin er upplýsingatćki. Hún sjálfvirknivćđir skráningu sjónrćnna upplýsingar.

"Madurinn lifir og hrćrist í ţví sem hann sér, en sér einungis ţađ sem hann hugsar."

M.ö.o. sjónrćnt umhverfi okkar hefur áhrif á hegđun okkar, túlkun okkar á ţví mótast hinsvegar af menningarsamfélagi okkar.

Lesefni: Jean Baudrillard - Frá eftirlíkingum til eyđimerkur.

"vera augnablikiđ sem fćđir formiđ og formiđ sem lćtur augnablikiđ lifa." - Paul Valéry, 1939 um dans. Leonardo Sciascia sagđi lýsingu Valérys eiga betur viđ um ljósmyndatćknina.

At 22:33: Lou Rosenfield Interviews Mark Hurst 

Lou Rosenfeld of Argus-Acia does an interview with Mark Hurst. They discuss the different terms used in connection to user-centered website design. Hurst explains (defends?) his favourite "Customer Experience" and how it relates to usability engineering, information architecture, and other such terms defining fields of design activity. Most interesting!

Mark explains:

"The customer experience is the combination of everything the customer sees, touches, reads, interacts with, or otherwise engages. The customer experience is a holistic combination of everything on a web site (or wireless app, or PDA interface, or whatever)."

In fact this relates closely to how I understand the idea behind the so-called total communication firms - except maybe total communication goes even further and reaches beyond on-line media and into print-material, press-releases, TV-spots, and public appearances.

In essence everything a company does - every little thing - is an integral part of how each customer experiences the company, it's products and services.

At 21:09: People Who Find Mundanity Interesting 

Journal of Mundane Behaviour is a site that publishes essays and articles that focus on the obvious. Tons of interesting (??) material to read.

I never realized this but there is a field within the social sciences that focuses on boring stuff specificly. I guess this subject is the one most overlooked by those who seek to expand our knowledge about ourselves. Still, mundanity is really a very exiting thing to examine when you think about it. Mundanity contains the norm and the norm defines our culture.

Hmmm... If looked at from the right perspective, then my homepage (and weblog) can be seen as an ongoing documentation of the mundane. Study material?

Planned readings from the journal:

At 20:43: A New Perspective on Human Needs 

Hugh Mackay writes a thought piece. Seriously Though...:

"Forget sex. Forget power. Forget food, shelter or the need to belong. The more I listen to people talking about their lives, and the more I ponder the highs and lows of human behaviour, the more I'm convinced that, in a society like ours, the most fundamental of all human needs is the need to be taken seriously. Everything else flows from that."
"If this need is truly fundamental, that may be why so many unsatisfied people resort, in the end, to taking themselves too seriously. There's a certain undeniable logic in the strategy that says: if other people won't take me seriously enough, why not do the job myself?"

My feelings are kind of mixed. I agree with some of his assumptions while others leave me kind of unsure. This gets me thinking though.

I just love this sort of home-brewed philosophy/psychology theories. His theory has a few things in common with some of the stuff I wrote in my essay "Einkabréf til vinar míns Internetsins" (In Icelandic).
