Waiting for the keynote sitting with John Papa, Frank LaVigne, Pete Brown, Page Brooks, Bryant Likes… woohoo!
Bill Buxton on stage…
“It’s a Good Time for Design!”
Learn and apply what people have done before… iPod colors dang near identical to Kodak camera colors from 90 years ago!
Design should be like screaming down a mountain on a bike scared to death to the point of needing pampers.
Asking the right questions to get the right answers takes experience to know the questions.
Essence of experience is Timing..
Sketching a UI on sticky notes… push a button, go to the next note.
Arrows between the notes end up creating a state transition diagram.
“If you don’t have as much detail in the transitions as you do in the states, you’re going to get it wrong”
Adding transition diagrams to the bottom of the sketches improves the design process
How can we deliver on a thin client the same experience as the large desktops using the same code. THAT is the ultimate ROI
