Eyeo 2012 – Afterthoughts and asides

• Paola Antonelli's talk was a super-savvy introduction to the proceedings. Not only because it was freewheeling and gregarious, but due to some of the underlying provocations she made. Antonelli 'zoomed out' from the specificity of the  last several years and looked to the radical 70s for inspiration. Although it might be old hat for the architecture/urbanist set, it was great to see the work of Italian upstarts Superstudio serving as discussion fodder for a room full of interaction designers and creative coders. As was the case with Natalie Jeremijenko's presentation last year, the polemic urging the audience to think big and tackle complex issues was deeply appreciated.

• The Ignite talks that chased Antonelli were great! Go watch Jen Lowe, Rachel Binx, Sha Hwang and Molly Steenson's speed presentations right now.
