These are my notes from Frank’s talk at dConstruct 2011:
The nature of the offering is the experience and the memory (experience and recollection).
Analog vs Digital
Digital products allow us to forget (ie. bills). Analog we find/digital we search. We own analog/it feels like we lease (pay for) digital.
Analog = OR / digital = AND
There’s an infinite with digital. Analog is a palpable stack like flipping through CD racks. The digital space doesn’t have an order (phantom file) …it’s a random collection of stuff. This random stuff has potential.
To keep a blog or collection of stuff is not a new idea… eg. Commonplace book
Architecture of Arrangement
Find stuff. Collect stuff. Arrange it. Arrangement requires a second pass… you have to step back and think about what you have.
Digital services are optimised for getting stuff in but not necessarily getting stuff out.
