The Social Web Is Broken: Instantly Insteresting, Lastingly Boring


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.

Best Practices and struggles for taking a website and moving it to an iPad

I am about to start evaluating a lot of websites that have moved from the web to an ipad. I am curious about these two questions:

  1. What are best practices for taking a desktop experience and moving it to an iPad?
  2. What are some struggles or pain points for customers when using an iPad?


Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your feedback!!!

Web accessibility standards in China

Is anyone familiar with Web Accessibility Standards in China? Is there a central set of standards that China has agreed to? Is there any agreement or effort to adhere to the W3C guidelines?

I'm doing some research on web accesibility standards globally, and would appreciate any information you could share. Thanks in advance for your help and time.

[Job] Georgia Association of Women Lawyers is looking for a Freelance Web Designer


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.



If you're interested, send me a message and I can connect you with Suzannah Gill in order to get the ball rolling.

Build Responsively Workshop

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.

Web Information Visualization Tool


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?

Tips for Performing a Multiple Channel Usability

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?
