Where the heavy lifting in UX is done (or should be done), Task Analysis. 
Task analysis is a step-by-step analysis of the users' task, from their perspective. Taking this approach to user research and task analysis will help you discover unmet opportunities to leapfrog your competition and dominate your market.

This is a lot behind a parking garage where I work. These horses had escaped their pen in south Fort Worth. They were easily wrangled but still it was nice to a little invasion of nature in a pedestrian place.

Jolie Cloud seems like a great idea that offers a united interface to different cloud services.
