I thought my readers might enjoy a good read about user experience. Here is a very interesting article about user experience, from a phenomenologistic point of view, by Tom Guarriello, which might give you a a killer argument the next time your marketing manager burst into your office using the buzzword “user experience” every two sentences…

long story short: Designers design occasions for experiences; experiences themselves are personal.

More accurately, what the experience designer is doing is creating conditions that invite the participant to engage with the atmosphere from a particular perspective and therein experience this range of meaning. (This is what we mean when we talk about “suspending disbelief” in the theatre or films).

hope this initiative of mine gives your experience of the day a little “plus”, whatever the context you are in :)
