I have been thinking a great deal lately about the transformative effects of digital phenomena (See an earlier post I wrote about music on cell phones).
Digital text differs greatly from analogue text. For example, see my text below.
I wanted to complete this post entirely in analogue format but I found entirely too labourious. So add that to my list. Analogue text is:
- Not searchable
- High fidelity
- Full of personality
- Able to be hidden
- Labour intensive
Designers might wonder what this post has to do with design or with design research. Ask yourself: how do you share your work? How much of your work is a mashup? How much of it is findable? Would you rather it be hidden or out there for the world to Google?
