Often we design for new users, with only a passing nod at existing ones. We design for the Now and the New. But what happens when digital destinations disappear? A strong dissonance can affect people who become used to a certain digital place, a certain set of patterns, images, and interactions.

We’ll start with Melissa Holbrook Pierson’s “The Place You Love Is Gone,” with nods to Resmini and Rosati, Kalbach, Morville, and others. We’ll ponder key approaches to easing the sense of loss that people might experience when progress destroys their digital homes. Inspirational, not quite practical, and fun.
