Speaker: Eric Reis, Author of The Lean Startup (@ericreis)
This was a fantastic talk by the author of the best-seller “The Lean Startup” – Eric Reis. I wanted to attend this session as wanted to learn how concepts from lean startups could be applied to the UX process, as per the thoughts of Jeff Gotthelf on “Lean UX” at last year’s SXSW.
I haven’t read the book yet, and I’m sure a lot of what was mentioned at this talk is in the book. But this talk made me want to read it. My notes on the talk below – I have yet to find the slidedeck for this one, but there are similar slidedecks up on Slideshare
This all-star panel formed a great start to SXSWi 2012, on the all important topic of context and why it is critical to the design process. The crew outlined 5 key themes to consider, and highlighted personal examples to showcase these themes.

MSN Visualizer is the kind of piece that makes you think Microsoft are definitely changing in a good way. It’s that beautiful image inspired design of the Metro style, but this time an interesting play with Flickr and music. The best way to experience it is to just try it out for yourself. As The Verge says, it’s just “mesmerising”.
