Some tweets about Harold Thimbleby’s talk at #SOUPS2013, the Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security

SOUPS is the Symposium on Usable Privacy and Security taking place in Newcastle (UK) from 24-26 July 2013.

Here are some tweets about the talk given by Harold Thimbleby (Swansea University and CHI+MED researcher) who is based at Swansea’s FIT lab.

Or you can read the tweets as a Storify story.

Note the numbers that the user is invited to dial in order to make a ‘999’ call. Harold’s video, ‘Saving Lives by Design’, which includes this picture is below. There’s also a low res version.

Harold also had a letter published in The Times, bemoaning some thoughtless commentary which had belittled the complexity of the programs and skills underpinning social media tools like Twitter.
