Building community through meaningful digital experiences


Throughout 2019 I will be working on my graduate thesis for a Master of Science in Integrated Digital Media at NYU's Tandon School of Engineering. Sounds pretty intense right? Below I'll chronicle the ideation, iteration, failures, and triumphs. Join me, won't you?

Demoing and Demoing and Demoing Well

Demo Day - Monday, March 25

Demo day was great! Six users tested the experience and completed my survey. People seemed generally excited and curiosity and expressed understanding and empathy towards opposing ideas. Some of the responses were a bit of a goof, but I think watching the users was very helpful.

Key Takeaways

  • The order could have a major impact. this is something to play with

  • Instructions on the redactions need to be better

  • Iteration of the footprint should include all the facets mentioned in the testimony

  • Reading the testimony is a little dull

  • Users want to know the difference between A/B path

DIY Demo Day

Pratik, Annie, and I got together to do our own Demo Day the weekend after the official one. They ran through the separate tracks and di the conversation piece at the end. Here are some photos and a video of their conversation.

Key Takeaways

  • Same as previous demo day

  • May want to add back in the newspaper judge who says which pitch wins (a resolution)
