Description

We’ll start with the story of a famous architect who used his knowledge of building design to become the greatest bank robber in New York City. Then we’ll explore how you yourself can become a UX supervillian by reviewing some of the basic UX principles of evil such as: manipulation, data privacy, and addiction. Along the way we’ll examine some real world examples that demonstrate these ideas and finally discuss the fact that you may already be doing some of these things without knowing it.
