Launching "Everyware" My New UXmatters Column

November 4th, 2008 — 5:31am

First Fic­tions and the Para­ble of the Palace is the inau­gural install­ment of “Every­ware: Design­ing the Ubiq­ui­tous Expe­ri­ence,” a col­umn explor­ing user expe­ri­ence and design in the era of ubiq­ui­tous com­put­ing. ‘First Fic­tions’ con­sid­ers the pro­found design impli­ca­tions of foun­da­tional visions of ubiq­ui­tous com­put­ing imag­ined by tech­nol­o­gists such as Mark Weiser and John Seely Brown, and finds prece­dent for these sorts of techno-social futures in the poetic para­bles of Jorge Louis Borges.
“Every­ware” will be a jour­ney through the expand­ing wave­front of the ubiq­ui­tous expe­ri­ence as it impacts design, cov­er­ing top­ics rang­ing from ubiq­ui­tous com­put­ing to near-field com­mu­ni­ca­tion, per­va­sive com­put­ing, The Inter­net of Things, spimes, ubi­comp, loca­tive media, and ambi­ent infor­mat­ics.
I hope it’s as good to read as it has been to write. And keep the com­ments flowing!

November 2nd, 2008 — 11:17am

Read­ers active in the enter­prise, intranet, por­tal, and syn­di­cated con­tent & func­tion­al­ity spaces might be inter­ested in The Build­ing Blocks of Effec­tive Por­tals that appears in the Novem­ber / Decem­ber issue of Intranets Today.
Intranets is one of the lead­ing pub­li­ca­tions focused on these top­ics, with reg­u­lar con­tri­bu­tions from the likes of Rachel Alexan­der, Jane McConnell, and James Rober­ston.
You will need a log-in to read the com­plete arti­cle on-line, but per­haps you were think­ing of sub­scrib­ing, and this will pull you in.
