Hello, I'm Marc Friederich 👋

Welcome to my personal website. I share here interesting links, some thoughts, some pictures I made and an archive of my talks. You may know me as a co-founder of Antistatique, a human centric web agency. Or as core-team’s member of Interaction 18, The 2018 Interaction Design conference.

Sbs Shifting Baseline Syndrome

Due to short life-spans and faulty memories, humans have a poor conception of how much of the natural world has been degraded by our actions, because our ‘baseline’ shifts with every generation, and sometimes even in an individual. In essence, what we see as pristine nature would be seen by our ancestors as hopelessly degraded, and what we see as degraded, our children will view as ‘natural’.

No Neutral Map

Our co-design and research findings indicate a need for standardized accessible web maps. When we met with browser implementers and map framework authors, they encouraged taking an iterative approach to standardizing maps by finding stop-gap solutions within existing map frameworks to inform what changes to browsers are necessary.
