Jasper at Sketching in Hardware 2010

Last week Jasper was invited to talk at the 5th annual Sketching in Hardware Conference in Los Angeles. The summit, on the design and use of physical computing toolkits, is one of our favorites – Tellart helped to craft it in 2005, and it is always an honor to be invited to participate.

Jasper’s talk was titled “Economies of fail: values and choices in sketching”. He discussed the value of sketching, and proposed that improved sketching resources should prompt us to generate a greater volume of hardware sketches, rather than more sophisticated sketches. Greater volume can lead to stronger ideas – a more valuable goal than prototypes with a higher degree of sophistication.

The talks should be online soon, and we’ll be sure to post Jasper’s here.
