Context and User-experience in New Media

According to Prof John Seely Brown, “context and user experience in the interactive, collaborative next-generation Web” will be of paramount importance.

Prof Brown gave his lecture on speech on “Redefining Media in the 21st Century” on 23 Sep at Singapore’s National Library at the invitation of the Singapore Press Holdings Foundation.

In line with what’s been happening in the Web 2.0 world, there is increasing need for companies to customise their offerings to the diverse and myriad niche groups of users out there.

Not only that, Prof Brown also mentioned the need to harness the open-source movement, where collaboration is key.

Indeed, the open-source nature of the Internet these days calls for greater transparency and willingness to share, and that’s definitely not a bad direction to take.
