You experience interactive rhythm whenever you scroll a social network feed, play an online game, or compose a PowerPoint slide. Eleven years have passed since Rhythm and Flow was last discussed at this conference in New Orleans. It’s time to revisit the topic, evaluate how far we’ve come, and update the findings and recommendations. Hint: not all of it has been healthy. Where are we today, and how can we ensure the technique is used for good in the future?
