a great illustration of the actual work involved in turning a ‘real’ girl into a ‘covergirl’. See… considering I spend about 10 mins on this kind of stuff before I leave the house, i reckon I turn out ok :)
eh. I wish it hadn’t taken me until October to find this and I hope they make another next year. Follow the 12 rules of usablity outlined in this calendar and you’re well on your way to good usability!
ok. now I get the odd email from people launching new products. This is the most exciting one EVER. I’ve only seen some screenshots and the demo video (that you’ll find at the end of this link), but I’m looking forward to getting my beta invite and playing with the app to see if it’s as good as it looks! If so… I think I could easily be hooked. I can see this app getting me back into the ‘Getting Things Done‘ discipline again too!
I’ve wondered this myself… so I thought I’d use the PodCastJam as a great excuse to get in touch with George Oates, an Australian (ex Adelaide) gal who’s been working with Flickr since before they were Flickr (remember Ludicorp?).
So, in my podcast interviewing debut (and… yes, I need more practice. Want to be interviewed?), I’ve posted an interview with George on the PodCastJam site.
I feel very nervous suggesting this, but I can’t hide such a great opportunity to chat with someone who designs in such an interesting spaces…. so, go check it out!
(Does anyone else think I sound remarkably like Judith Lucy?! Surely I don’t talk like that all the time…. must be my special podcast interviewing voice. A cousin of my phone answering voice).
Personally, I’ve found it really interesting that despite all the different perspectives that people have been coming at Office 2.0 at the conference and the jam, two really loud recurrent themes keep coming out – community and collaboration.
