Our guest speaker was Dr Paulo Amaldi a former Programme Leader who recommended we read the paper “Electronic Furniture for the Curious Home: Assessing Ludic Designs in the Field” International Journal of Human Computer Interaction by Gaver et al. It was a paper which raised some very thought provoking issues which were discussed at length. I prepared a brief review of the paper with some further points of discussion which can be viewed here. This paper also elicited further reading into ‘Reflective Design’ and in particular a paper with the same name by Sengers et al became the subject of the following weeks discussion.
