hello members,
I have been reading the crowdsourcing topic with deep interest while
simultaneously working on a presence User Interface for fun. (its weekend
and I am bored)
I made the UI in powerpoint and would like to know if you guys were
willing to adjust or work more on it. if you are interested let me know I
will send you the file... If we are able to prodcue a decent presence UI
from scratch, we could dedicate that it to Ixda. (don't know if they could
use it, but the crowdsourced presence UI could be bought by any mobile
company??) Let me know if you are interested!

What do you mean by presence UI

During my thesis I also touched the concept of 'presence', which can
be used in order to prevent interrupting phone calls.
But in order to use this 'presence' system a decent User Interface
needs to be implemented. Many corporations are working on such User
Interfaces and I have seen some 'presence' User Interfaces at
different communication corporations. What I saw while visiting these
corporations was the 'local' 'lifeworld' view on things. For instance
one company consisted of only Danes and these did not take other
cultural diversity or thinking into consideration. So the presence
User Interface they were developing might work for Scandinavians, but
might not be well understood by South Asians or South Americans etc...
Ixda.org has members from all over the world. All the members will
bring in their own 'lifeworld' while contributing with their idea on
the Presence User Interface.... Its just an idea I had...

I am still unsure what you mean by presence - could you focus on that
and amplify your answer - I am curious.

Isn't presence just the ability to know availability information like
in an IM client? Will, it feels pretty standard to me.

In the old honeycomb, is that all we are talking about? Knowing who is
online when?

obviously there is a host of meta data that can further appended on
the "old honeycomb" that we know today and I know YOU are smart
enough to do just that. ;-)

'Isn't presence just the ability to know availability information

yes it is. BUT there are alot of options with such a presence system.
Fine, I can see Dave on my display but what options do I have? Shall I
call him right away? I can see that he is 'available' but is it
because he forgot to change his 'availability'? Or was his mobile
phone which runs on a context awareness system, unable to do it for
some reason? Also I see that Dave is available but how to contact
him? Send him an SMS? Call him right away? Poke him via an instant
message so that his mobile phone vibrates in order to let him know
that I am interested in communicating with him? The 'presence'
displays I have seen while visiting different corporations do not
give a user alot of different options...

I have received emails from several members who are interested in this
initiative. I have scanned in the original work and sent it as an
attachment. If they like what they see and want to built on it
further, add features, delete options etc, then I have told them to
reply again and I shall send in the priginal power point files.
It could be nice to see how ixda.org members view a presence display
and what cultural or other important factors they include in their
design suggestions. More insight to a problem is surely better than 1
insight only.

Sounds like an interesting concept-- are you envisioning this as an IxDA
Buddy list? If so, we should think of ways to integrate with other social
networks rather than to build our own. Maybe this concept becomes a wrapper
for the ways to get in touch?

I guess I'd have to see this thing visually before I grasp it fully. Is it
possible for you to put this up on the web somewhere? If not, please do add
me as well to your e-mail chain.

bingo.

any presence system has two faces: one faces the user, the other his/
her audience. User issues relate to "presence availability,"
particularly what to reveal. Because any presence system by its nature
solicits or invites communication -- and not all users who like to
share their presence status want to invite communication... Fbook has
handled this stuff pretty well, in terms of granular and flexible user
settings. But that's fbook...

cheers,

An email has been sent out to all those who were interested.
These emails came from people residing in many different countries
which mean that their suggestions will be based on cultural and their
own 'lifeworld'. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lifeworld
So a final design suggestion prototype will HOPEFULLY contain
features and consider problems to be aware of and hence benefit us
all.

I'm working on some presence related design patterns for the social design
patterns collection I've been building for Yahoo and I expect to post drafts
of them at http://designingsocialinterfaces/patterns.wiki in the near future
(within about a week). When I do, I'll drop back by this thread to see if
anyone has suggestions, comments, requests or ideas; and also just to find
out if the patterns are useful.

New to this site, so I hope this is the right place to post.

I'm a "master web & interactive design"- student; for my
masterpiece I work with interactivity. More specific; I develop an
interactive boardgame that communicates with the net. The goal is to
improve interaction between web and real world.

I'm looking for definitions of interactivity or for sources that
have some good content about it. Or anything that would help.
