Are There Enough Freaks on Board?

Regard the slides above as an information resource instead of a presentation and learn a lot about design and development for the mobile context. I don't really like the bullet desert though ;) View the presentation!

"The mobile web browser is seeking information (often), yes, but most likely this person is looking for the answers to questions and not for a long involved reading experience.

Nico Nyman says: "Companies and brands should think about (user) experience to find new competitive edge for their business." So do others. But he has a nice presentation on the topic. View the presentation! | Read /personal!

Stephen P. Anderson says: "What do rock bands have to do with management? Groups and organizations, just like musicians, don't all work and behave in the same way. In this presentation, I to the music industry to describe four organizational archetypes - each with a different set of values and way of working. By understanding each of these work cultures, the culture you work in, and the work style that best fits you personally, we can make sense of the conflicts we face at work and become more effective at our job, whether we're employees, managers or - rock stars!"

Design and develop for the iPhone and beyond?

We discovered Stephen P. Anderson early on. Then he presented together with Travis Isaacs 4 months ago. 2 years earlier Travis uploaded this presentation to slideshare.net.

I have to admit, I was late. Though I was involved in the German Windows CE/ Pocket PC 2000 web site relaunch around 2000, I jumped on the user bandwagon just after iPhone 3G officially arrived in Switzerland this summer. In the meantime I was using mobile phones as calling devices, going for a Nokia, a Motorola, and two Sony Ericssons.

Lee LeFever is a genius!

Bye-bye, & the Red Fez 1.0

Over the weekend, I hurled myself into migration and rollback attempts, struggling with the underlying content management system of this blog, Movable Type, and with my hosting provider's capabilities (&462/, &463/, &465/).
