The UX of Content Consumption
New formats, technologies, changing attitudes about the news, shorter attention spans, and an increasingly global experience are changing the way we enjoy content. Our free time is spent consuming content in various formats, and 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 and product thinkers to explore the changing UX of content consumption. Each will have 10-15 minutes to present their thoughts on the topic, and we'll reserve some time for discussion with the audience at the end.
