Thinking about thinking and thinking about other minds. We are joined by Professor Stephen Fleming, neuroscientist and author of the book Know Thyself to learn more about how our cognition works and the implications for our work as mind-creating creatives and in the development of AI.

We discuss metacognition, self-realisation, prediction error signals and dopamine, theory of mind, AIs and confidence estimation, 

“Metacognition literally means cognition, about cognition, or thinking about thinking. So it’s the capacity we have this weird and wonderful capacity, we have as humans to reflect on a know something about the operation of our own minds.”

In this classic episode Per and James are joined by Christopher McCann to talk to Tom. 

“We become facilitators in a discussion about design with people that don’t know how to talk about design. I think if we see that as our role, it becomes a lot easier to jump into that meeting and be effective. The problem is that we don’t always see ourselves in that role. We see ourselves as being there to receive feedback from them.”

We talk to Kim Foulds and Joyce Rafla about how they made use of videos featuring Sesame Workshop muppets to make taking a consent decision more inclusive, accessible and informed.

We discuss the complexity of obtaining informed consent, especially when faced with literacy, cultural and economic challenges. We also reflect on how we work with consent within digital design research.

“One of the most powerful elements of the video is a child asking questions of an adult and then is free to say no, and there’s no shame. No one says ‘Are you sure?’, ‘Come on’. That’s there’s no peer pressure effect. It’s just like, ‘Okay’ and then we move on to the next thing.”

Rich Brophy joins us to talk about best practice and to offer some advice about what might be even better than best practice.

“Best practices [are] like that looming shadow in Independence Day, how the ship blocks out the sun, and there’s all these people sitting there doing their work working really hard. And we come in from above with this huge thing that we think that is going to embed best practice on the organisation. They’ve got no idea what it is, how it works, even why they should care. And I think that this mindset of embedding best practice, which I think is a great term that sums up everything that’s wrong. Just needs to change.”

Per and James discuss two articles that have grabbed their attention – we feature articles about how car culture colonised our thinking, and how Figma is making you a bad designer.

Article one is… How car culture colonised our thinking – and our language by Thalia Verkade and Marco te Brömmelstroet, translated by Fiona Graham. “When we block traffic from a street, like for a sports event or a street party, we say that the street is “closed”. But who is it closed for? For motorists. But really, that street is now open to people.”

Our second featured article is… Figma is making you a bad designer by Emily Schmittler. “if I couldn’t do my job with pen and paper (or whiteboard and marker), then I wasn’t a very good designer. To this day, I find the sentiment to be at my advantage.”

“We have to scale down, we have to dismantle, we have to try to get old systems out of the way, and not just pile up more and more and more in the environment that we that we present to our users”  

We hear of the Productivity paradox, the tendency for Feature creep and how we should be pulling down old systems in order to return to simplicity. But how do we actually do it?

Tim Yeo joins us to talk about how introverted designers and design leaders can work with their introversion and use it as a super-power.

“I think a lot of times people just inherit and are “oh, this is the way that things are”. But actually, you could intentionally say that these are the ways that we operate. When we’re in a group environment, we get the chance to actually pass a microphone to everyone so that everyone does have a turn to say something”

Not too fast and not too slow. “The more we work on hard design problems, the more we need to take the time to work on those problems” says Dan. We need to be assertive and say what we need in order to do the work we need to do.

What should the output of a discovery phase be? When have we thought and discovered enough? What do we deliver?

Per and James discuss two articles that have grabbed their attention – we feature articles about designing the perfect button, and how sitemaps are an essential tool in web design.

Article one is… Designing the perfect button by Domas Markevičius. “Buttons are one of the main UI elements in interactive design. Some of the more complex interfaces can have hundreds of buttons on a single website. Most businesses measure their success by button clicks. So it’s crucial to communicate to the user how a button works and where it’ll lead them.”

Our second featured article is… Can a Website Sitemap Create Better UX? UX Sitemap Guidelines by Kelly Breland. It’s a piece of content marketing that trys to explain and contrast (UX) sitemaps and sitemap.xml files, and why both are useful. Our discussion concludes with a special appearence by Information architect Donna Spencer where she explains more about sitemaps.
