5.0 su 5 stelle Mr Hinton finally writes it all down! 9 febbraio 2015
Di Abby Covert - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Mr. Hinton references the following quote: "In the Universe, there are things that are known, and things that are unknown, and in between there are doors." — William Blake

With that quote as our shared context I will say that this book is a door to knowledge that will allow an entire generation of digital designers to more properly consider the context in which their work is used.

This book is easy to read, but also full of important academic concepts more designers should be talking and thinking about in this messy cross-channel world. Hinton’s writing is like attending a master's program in Gibsonian psychology while having the smartest kid in class sitting next to you explaining what the heck is going on in everyday language. I applaud O’Reilly in bringing this work to the world and Mr Hinton for pouring his heart into writing it.

5.0 su 5 stelle Key conceptual thinking and design guidance to meet new challenges in UX and IA 11 febbraio 2015
Di Marsha H - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Not only does this book detail the key elements of context and the information architecture needed to go about designing for it, we are also gifted with a return to the true intent behind the concept of affordances. Hinton gives user experience designers and information architects a new lens on how we as humans derive meaning as we interact with the things around us in the digital, built, and natural world. This understanding offers a more fruitful way to go about design and assessing the goodness of our designs.

I like the balance of conceptual underpinnings and present-day specific design examples, all presented in Hinton’s engaging style and turns-of-phrase.

This is a book I wish I'd had back in school for the way of thinking about affordances and meaning through acting. I consider it a vital reference for going about design projects now, as a UX/IA practitioner trying to facilitate meaning in our world of pervasive devices, IoT, networks, digital agents, spatial/gestural UIs, and whatever else the future holds...

5.0 su 5 stelle Recommended to anybody who seeks to understand how understanding works 10 aprile 2016
Di Rachael Hodder - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Understanding Context is a sort of wunderkammer of humanistic study. I would recommend it to any intellectual explorer and adventurer who is seeking to understand how understanding works. Hinton weaves together a tapestry of theoretical perspectives about cognition, language, and place along with his own observations about how the world is arranged so that it is understood by all who inhabit it.
Hinton's writing is accessible, but not dull; occasionally abstract, but not impenetrable (thanks to the clever models and images throughout!). I would especially suggest that college students and graduate students studying design, writing/communication, and engineering pick up Understanding Context. As a recovering academic who researched design and was trying to make my way into actually practicing design, I was really thankful to read something that seemed to model how I could use my analytical research skills in the context of IA and design practice.

5.0 su 5 stelle Navigate our information world with context 10 settembre 2015
Di Dalia R. Levine - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I loved reading this book. I work with data and figuring out how to best use it and describe it. This book has a permanent spot on my bookshelf because it explains why context is important when dealing with data. I appreciate how the book provides guidance on how to approach problems and I find it helps me do my job better.

The book contains practical use cases which all help illustrate the ideas. I find myself incorporating the ideas presented some months after completing reading it. Using sources from a wide variety of disciplines is fascinating since it all leads to how we extract meaning from our daily interactions with information. I especially liked how city structures and planning, storytelling, and data management are all mentioned. Those seemingly unrelated topics are all a part of how we understand our world and how we make our way through it.

After reading Understanding Context, I feel I have a better grip on how the use of data is complex. There is a glut of information in our world but it is not longer scary to figure out the context for the information.

4.0 su 5 stelle but I found it useful and educational in ways I hadn't thought of 24 aprile 2016
Di B. Naylor - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
The book is intended to inform on the subject of context with regards to websites, mobile apps, and digital information, but I found it useful and educational in ways I hadn't thought of. Really worth reading if you work in the tech space, or any role that requires you to understand the perspective of other people = it really opened my eyes to some fascinating concepts that I now reference daily.
