The Social Network Show welcomes Malcolm McCullough to the August 20, 2014 episode.
Mr. McCullough, Professor of Architecture at the University of Michigan and author of several books, addresses the demands made on our attention in a world flooded with media, coming to us in all different forms. Hear Malcolm talk about the flood of media and information surrounding us all the time, what he says about mobile technology, and what steps we can take to respond appropriately.
Malcolm McCullough is a widely recognized scholar on digital media culture, having delivered nearly fifty invited talks, in over a dozen countries. His most recent book, Ambient Commons—Attention in the Age of Embodied Information (MIT Press, 2013), explores information environmentalism and the benefits of attending to one’s physical surroundings. His previous book Digital Ground—Architecture Pervasive Computing and Environmental Knowing (2004) became a standard in many interaction design programs. Abstracting Craft (1996) is now a cult classic and earned McCullough a nomination for a Chrysler design award (2002). Digital Design Media (coauthored with William Mitchell, 1991), won an American Institute of Architects international book award and pioneered electronic prepress. At Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Planning since 2001, McCullough teaches design studios and courses in urban and tangible computing. Previously he served on the architecture and design faculty at Carnegie Mellon and before that for ten years (1988-98) at Harvard. Even earlier, he was a pioneer of computer-aided design (CAD) at Autodesk in the 1980s. An amateur historian and back-country enthusiast, he has traveled extensively in the continental United States. He is currently researching a book on responsive surfaces in architecture.
