Blind Spot finally published

This book has been five years in the making, rewritten (from scratch) four times, and has finally shipped! My co-authors, Steve Diller and Sean Sauber, have worked tirelessly on it with me and it’s time to share it with the world. Douglas Rushkoff was kind enough to write a fantastic foreword to it, too! The description tells part of the story but, really, this book is about a new way of doing business—starting with valuing relationships in a new way. After all, that’s all you can really count on in business (if you’re building for anything but the extremely short term). No relationships, no value to derive, exchange, or “monetize.” We’ve even put the illustrations online at Flickr for use in your own presentations. There’s more information at the book site but here’s the Table of Contents to peruse: Foreword by Douglas Rushkoff Chapter 1. A World of Hidden Value Chapter 2.

It was an idea I had many years ago (at least 1989) but one I never pursued until I ask Chris if he would like to join me on exploring the topic of “what interaction designers could learn from science fiction interfaces.” He brought great ideas and process and we both embarked on a 5-year exploration into all of the science fiction we could get in front of us. It’s available as a printed book, PDF, and numerous mobile...
