Feature Presenters

Les Posen

What makes for a great technology? How is that some technologies make it and others don’t, while still others become co-opted for uses other than the original intent of the designer/innovator?

Les Posen is a clinical psychologist who has been using Apple technologies since 1988 to improve his work, that of his patients’ lives, and that of his colleagues to help them better manage their digital workflows. He’s the President of an Apple MUG in Melbourne, and blogs regularly about presentation skills using Apple’s Keynote.

His ideas on what makes for great technologies has been published by the Australian Psychological Society and the American Psychological Society.
