Fight Bias with Content Strategy

Users’ minds take shortcuts. Usually they’re harmless. But what happens when they’re not? In this talk, David Dylan Thomas will use real-world examples to identify some particularly nasty biases that frequently lead users to make bad decisions. He’ll then talk about some content strategy and design choices we can use in our apps, designs, and platforms to redirect or eliminate the impact of those biases. Finally, he’ll explore our own biases and some methods to prevent our own blind spots from hurting users.
