In San Francisco, highight of the conference so far has been an intriguing series of UI/UX paradigms by designers including Schematic, Method, Spin the Bottle, Eat.TV, Voom and OpenTV. Appropriately, the designs grappled with the pressing need to move from searching a linear guide to presenting a visual search methodology which keys from one visual selection to another visual selection. Dale also described his concept of the “New Primetime”: those pieces of content which are recent (including recently grabbed via DVR, from VOD, etc.) rather than the old school notion of Primetime as “airing on a network this minute”. Good discussion.
