Whatever you’re doing online now – whether it’s Google AdWords, social media, SEO, email marketing – whatever it is, measure it.
Do more of what is working, stop doing what isn’t working, and start testing something new.
If you’re not actually doing anything to market your business online at the minute then pick something – anything – and start testing and measuring.” —http://twiggal.com/1217/5-truth-bombs/ via https://twitter.com/#!/IsabelleOC/status/170149883473436672
This seems interesting, but it needs further explaining in for me to understand it. #hosting #webrtc #sockets #html5
When faced with an unfamiliar term users feel a sense of doubt. This creates one of two reactions…
The sense of doubt leads to uncertainty and inaction.
They feel a need to understand the unfamiliar term and so waste time investigating the section in case it contains relevant content to them.
Zombie LARP effectively gives the player very few verbs. In fact, it basically gives them “shoot” as in “shoot the gun at the zombie” and “run”.
And “die horribly” Mary added.
One important digital UX parallel to draw here is that a limited set of verbs governs the user having a limited set of actions. When we say to users that they can only “Like” content, then “Like” doesn’t carry any nuance. When people use the “favourite” button to mark something as “read later”, “this is dreadful”, “that’s funny” and “I agree”, then forcing them to use one verb robs the action of semantic meaning.” —

Just discovered that you can namespace e.g. a click event like click.loading. You can then, for example provide different interaction during a page load, then once you have the details you need, you can unbind .loading and bind what you actually want to happen…
Object.prototype.toString.call(arg) == ‘[object Array]’;
“The days of calling yourself a Flash developer are over. This was fine when Flash was the only interactive game in town. Instead I recommend that you adopt a title that is technology agnostic. Personally I like the term interactive developer.”
This meshes with my ideas about Interaction Design. Flash devs know about animation, statefulness.
@amazon I’m upgrading my music on cassette (I know!) to a digital format. The scanner on the iPhone app just shows the tape format. Could it suggest other formats?
PS Infinite Versioning, very rapid release cycles and updates (for apps) are going to be a Very Big Thing.
