Forrester First Look at Convergence Fact and Fallacy

Some recent thoughts from the guys I keep an eye on.

Research & Event Highlights From Forrester
07 March 2005


Convergent Technologies, Divergent Devices

Convergence has been a popular topic for years. The term has scared
executives into bad mergers (anyone remember the $2 BILLION that
Disney lost after buying Infoseek?). We hear about the convergence of
TVs and PCs, voice and data, media and distribution, marketing and
customer service, content and advertising -- and more.

Google's New Design

By now, I’m sure we all must have noticed the new design that Google recently rolled out. I somehow feel that the left hand sidebar filters can be designed better.  Even the transition from more search tools to fewer search tools does not seem to be very smooth. Google has been experimenting with this sidebar for many months now. I wish if there was an option to “turn off” this new sidebar. Though I really like the way more filters are given in search categories such as Images, Books etc.  Especially the color and type search in images is absolutely fundu.

Core77 equivalent for interaction design?

In the industrial design world, http://www.core77.com/ is the 800-lb gorilla of industry news, information and cool stuff. In interaction design, it's obviously the IxDA list, but its not quite the same since it's user-generated content, versus more of a news bureau approach.

People who learnt wikipedia syntax

Hi All,

Wikipedia has had such wide-spread acceptance despite the fact the it
expects the user to learn a new syntax. Of course one needs to learn
that only if one wants to do some formatting, add images etc.. but
one would quickly need those tools when writing articles.

I am wondering if there is any material available on how this new
language was adopted. Was it that the early adopters were much more
tech savvy and quickly learnt? was the help content great? is the
syntax itself very natural? Something else?

Like Yahoo Answers. but paid and accurate?

I work for a startup catering to real estate brokers. Our market research typically involves calling several of them and asking questions. Not great.

What I'm looking for is an online "answer marketplace" where:
- "answerers" have been screened for professionalism, occupation, demographic info, etc...
- "askers" set parameters on who can answer, # of answers, price per answer etc...

I've found sites on which an "expert" will answer your specific question, but in this case i'm looking for some crowd source aspect - I want many replies to a a few questions.

Digital patina

Had a look at this Flickr set today:
http://www.flickr.com/groups/desire_paths [*]
It shows examples of when humans have eschewed the predefined path to take a
shortcut instead. Really nice visualisation of the path of least resistance.

How have you observed this happening online?
