Decent Patterns

Eileen Wagner

Tested UX patterns can inform and support the development of decentralised technologies and lower the barrier to entry.

While decentralised technologies from BitTorrent to Mastodon are proliferating, the biggest barrier to adoption is still the (new and old) paradigm that diverges from the user experience of centralised technologies. I will argue that common standards — UX patterns — can help the ecosystem be more attentive to user needs, and create common frameworks for new users to build a shared language and understanding.
