UX Brighton Presentation on Dark Patterns

Note: This post is over 4 years old. It was first published in September 2010

I’m sort of live-blogging this, so I’ll be brief. My presentation from UX Brighton 2010 can be found on slideshare here, as a PDF here (2MB) and as a big-ass PPTX here (72MB).

Huge thanks to Cennydd Bowles and Andy Budd who gave me feedback on the first draft, and the Madgex Design team who helped me put on the final layers of polish!
