    Looking at Place and Loss

    3@mojoguzzi @RegJoeConsultsProgress has an impact on our selves...not just physical progress, but digital as well. In our jobs, we certainly focuses on progress. I'm interested in at what cost.

    This talk provides some WHAT, not a lot of HOW. Its meant to be a thought-provoking talk...So, I am starting with this great book by the wonderful Melissa Holbrook Pierson. She talks about how important place is to us...and what we experience when it changes, and changes drastically.

  • Her books like The Perfect Vehicle: What It Is About Motorcycles and The Man Who Would Stop at Nothing deal with place, self, and change as well. Deep down, my home, my cradle, is still where it always was. Your home is still within you, the box it made and then hid inside.

    Im also heavily indebted to the great Pervasive IA that Andrea Resmini and Luca Rosati put out...especially Chapter 4, Place-making

  • Space is not geometry

    Place-making is the capability of a PvIA model to help users reduce disorientation, build a sense of place, and increase legibility and way-finding across digital, physical, and cross-channel environments.

  • In effect, I'm using the working definition of **place** as being the intersection or the amalgamation perhaps of **space** (in a physical or digital sense) and **time**, usually duration. So a sense of place exists because we spent time in that physical surroundingor digital one.

  • Our sense of self is strongly tied to place. Many of us can tie memory to a mall or house or synagogue. Here is where you had your first kiss...there is where you shoplifted a bag of Swedish Fish......and when progress radically alters that landscape, we are lost. Now, the place you loved is so much broken signage....disappeared, non-existent shops......broken pavement, or at worst, simply nothingness. Atreyu lost. The Nothing won.

  • Sometimes those memories have to do with family, with friends, with people...but usually people in a place.Looking at pictures of the northeast corner of the house where my maternal grandparents live, I remember my father sitting there. I remember hanging out with my dad and uncle and grandfather (and his dog). I remember the day my oldest brother got married and my dad was his best man, my other brother and I were groomsmen. The corner is still therebut yet not there. Not only is furniture gone, but so is my father, and my grandfather, and my uncle. I am still hereyet when I visit that house, these corners are not these corners.

  • What happens when we return to those places....and they're changed. Do those people really exist at all anymore? "Cognitive maps, formed by the brain upon first viewing a place, *really* don't like to be changed"

  • Discontinuity and nostalgia are most profound if, in growing up, we leave or lose the place where we were born and spent our childhood, if we become expatriates or exiles, if the place, or the life, we were brought up in is changed beyond recognition or destroyed.

    The 2013 video of a kid sobbing because iOS7 has radically changed his sense of digital place accurately showcases how many of us feel in similar situations.

    Altered landscapes affect our cognitive processes, whether they're physical or digital. At one time, this is what folks longed for. Even Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan reflected its meme, now long forgotten.

  • Sometimes we look back with fondness at our first forays into a digital anchor. How many started here with TheFacebook?

  • Then renovation radically refaces our home. When several of these changes happened, lots of folks expressed
