The social web is broken. Facebook, Foursquare, Instagram, Pinterest,
Tumblr, Path, whatever, app or web… you name it. They’re all the same:
instantly interesting, lastingly boring. All we’ve got are social
networks that are networked but not social, social media that is media
but not social, social marketing that is marketing but not social, and
social interactions that are interactive but not social. What's the problem? How to fix it? Here are my initial thoughts.
A local charity group, the Georgia Association of Women Lawyers (GAWL) wants to update the website for their annual art auction fundraiser, which will be held this April. The event website is currently linked to the GAWL website, but it is a very elementary design, and they think that they're looking to start with something fresh.
I happened across this site for a Responsive Web Design Workshop at Miami University next month:
Unfortunatley I won't be able to go, but thought I'd pass it along to see if anyone else was interested. Also of note, at the bottom right of the home page is a Twitter vote for which cities get to host another and Columbus is on the list. It would be nice to see Central Ohio get to host it.
I am surveying tools for interactive web information visualization, which is not too technical for class project but still feasible enough to be applied to practical project.
I guess Flex or Flare would not be compatible anymore alogn with the declination of Flash ActionScript (is this correct...?). Then Processing would be a reasonable tool to start information visualization with? What do you think a good interactive visualization tool that can be applied to senior design course project with technical compatibility as well as design flexibility?
My cleint wants me to perform a mulitple channel usability test, where we might have someone print a boarding pass on the web, go to a kiosk to print a luggage tag, and use their mobile device to pick their seat. I think it is best to do this kind of scenario type testing, where I can view the person.
Has anyone ever done a test like this before? What advice do you have for me?
Hey everyone, I'm one of the organizers for ReMIX South (last year ReMiX Atlanta), and I'd like to invite everyone to join us for ReMIX South. We've got a full track on UX, along with Web, Mobile, Tablet and Kinect tracks. Kicking off things is Albert Shum, Director of the Windows Phone Design team, giving the keynote followed by great talks from the likes of Rick Baeeaza, August De Los Reyes, Jen Downs, James Chittenden, Zachary Pousman, Luke Hamilton, Steve Dawson and many more.
