was a look at the corporate world of 2004 from the vantage point
of 1992-1994. By creating a movie, the team felt that the User eXperience
of a corporate customer could be better understood by Engineering.
At the time the film was developed and released there was no common
knowledge of the Internet, laptop computers and widespread use of
email, yet these items are forecast in the film.
On November 16,
2004 (the "exact" date used in the film - 10 years earlier),
Bob presented the film to Trolltech's Linux conference. It is remarkable
to see how many technologies were accurately shown in the film.
Thanks to the genius of Bruce "Tog" Tognazzini, the film
helped pioneer the field of video prototyping. Through this new
technique, your engineers and team can better understand the User
eXperience that you need to develop.
Bob is available
for corporate talks on your User eXperience and how it can be improved.
