Yellow Chair Stories

My adviser just sent me a link to an interesting project run by this student in London who is trying to explore the ways that individuals experience the socia-technical landscape that they live in. She is an interaction designer who set up this cute little space in front of a stoop where people can sit on a yellow chair and browse the web for free. During this time, she offers them tea or coffee and converses with them. While there isn't much meat to her work yet (I hope she continues this but doubt she will), I think it is a great way to set up a friendly environment where to get people thinking in a more civic minded way and learn from their daily experiences.

You can find out more about her project here
