2011 Engaging New Technologies: Productivity
In March 2011, I had the privilege of presenting the following presentation with Meghan Musolff, Assistant Coordinator of Visual Resources at the University of Michigan. We presented at the Visual Resource Society and Art Library Society of North America's joint 2011 conference, and we discussed current productivity technologies as well as potential future variations on today's technologies. We tackled task, project, and information management. In my section, I expanded on those three categories to envision future scenarios by mashing up the categories with artificial intelligence, simplicity & precise utility, simplified realities, dashboards, and ambient information. It was a great experience, and I am very thankful for the opportunity.
Some of the categories, tools, and concepts discussed include the following: futurism, Dentsu London, BERG, project management, information management, task management, lifehacks, social bookmarking, diigo, delicious, aggregators, bloglines, google reader, onehub, doodle, teuxdeux, remember the milk, wunderkinder, evernote, wunderlist, microsoft surface, OLED displays, 5pm, basecamp, wrike, zoho projects, clarizen, artificial intelligence, readability, augmented reality, incidental media, mixing media, media surfaces, screen technology, ambient information, and rainmeter.
