Watch Peter Morville’s “The Future of Search” talk at IxDA | Interaction ‘10 Conference

Search is among the most disruptive innovations of our time. It influences what we buy and where we go. It shapes how we learn and what we believe. It’s a wicked problem of terrific consequence and a radically cross-disciplinary, creative challenge. In this talk, Peter Morvile defines a pattern language for search that embraces user psychology and behavior, multisensory interaction, and emerging technology. He also identifies design principles that apply across the categories of web, e-commerce, enterprise, desktop, mobile, social, and realtime. And, he shows how futures methods and user experience deliverables can help us to create better search interfaces and applications today, and invent the unthinkable discovery tools of tomorrow.
