James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

A Lost Art.

Posted on | December 17, 2014 | No Comments

We spend a lot of time thinking and talking about technology and development.

What we seem to spend less and less time thinking about is the medium itself becoming fixated on the ease of creating the message.

We also seem to think that technology has an electronic component, but if we think back to 1455 there was a huge change in process/technology and it had nothing to do with electronics.

Process and the creation of a user experience is something we sometimes lose sight of when we think about technology and technological developments today.

As Google says, technology is the application of knowledge for practical purposes.

Here is a great look at making books from the era of the 1500s that I think puts technology and user experience into perspective.
