If you have been following the EID articles this week (or read my preview in last week’s pre-cap), you may have noticed that these were all follow-ups on previous articles (Workplace Design, Driving Assistance, and Fast Company’s 50 Most Innovative Companies). That was a strategic decision, to have a week of deep dives into specific topics. We will continue some of them next week, but also start some new ones.
The exception was our One Year Anniversary post (wow, can you believe it has only been a year !!!). We stole a chapter from Ta-Nehisi Coates and created an Open Forum. Post anything you want, even if it is just remotely, tangentially related to the EID scope of human factors, ergonomics, user experience, persuasive design, cognitive science, human behavior, and innovation. If you noticed that this is just recap Episode 46 (instead of 52), it is because we didn't think of the recap idea for the first six weeks. But I am very impressed by your attention to detail for noticing!
I also want to introduce Boyi Hu as the newest member of the EID Team. We will be posting his bio on the site in the very near future, but for now, just keep that name in mind. He will be helping us out with our social media strategy.
