conference: December 2008 Archives

Bill DeRouchey (@billder) was the opening presentation at CyborgCamp and was wonderfully entertaining and informative. Here are some quick notes I took:

  • How did the "Play/Pause" button become univerally understood?
  • Typewriters choose the winning "letter symbols"
  • Symbols evolve.
  • Are we losing some types/modes of literacy? Is that such a bad thing?
  • @ - commerce symbol "each at", then location, then identity
  • # - means a group on twitter "context, topic"
  • Mouse pointer ~1984
  • Future directions in the evolution of tech languages?
  • Splintered groups of tech languages
  • Emotional bandwidth
  • Gatekeepers of knowledge, screening out less knowledgeable people
