Linked by Air definitely has an interesting way of thinking about the fluidity of design - is this novel or just more descriptive?
Re: the rain example, does the digital world follow natural patterns? Visually or interactively? If so, how? What are some examples?
Love the idea of the launch of something not being a 'big bang'. Find this very true. Why are launches so hyped? Even for other industries, clothings, startups, etc. They're always changing...does this affect our engagement with the site?
Why is the ever-changing site (Yale example) beneficial for users/visitors? Is it because of novelty? Because of surprise? Ideally a moment of joy or engagement? This certainly goes against the idea of 'best practices' in digital design and consistent experiences for users that should aid in UX/UI (i.e. think the adoption of the hamburger nav on mobile). Is one better than the other?
Should screens and the digital world represent the real world we live? Should they be changing and fluid and growing (fish example)? Should we make them 'one'?
How do you build 'community' within a screen context? Thinking about this outside of the typical contemporary sense of community with social media, commenting back and forth, etc.
- What does technology 'living in its role' mean? How can we both develop and grow novel technologies while still living in its role?
