Way cool... was the elevation factor 1 on this video, the changes in elevation seemed pretty steep?

A very interesting read, just makes me wonder how that could be realized in Finland. As populations grow cities need to be re-invented to make them more inhabitant friendly.

ICT can solve a lot of those problems by reducing the need to travel by providing people with advanced telepresensing capabilities built into houses themselves. Means of autonomous transport and delivery (self driving cars and delivery systems/robots) can reduce the amount of traffic also and make it more efficient. Public transportation can be made more reliable and cost-efficient. A very important addition to this list are personal 3D-printers and local/shared 3D-printing facilities, this technology alone has the potential to revolutionize our lives.

A major hurdle is the actual planning of the shared physical spaces, how to make them usable and inviting without raising the costs and reducing the efficiency at a larger scale.

Show, don't tell. Prototypes are the way to go to really drill into solutions that are dynamic and interactive on multiple levels.

Going to wait forr the final version but it is good that Thomas has kicked of this project, the change may not be here in a while but it will be inevitable. I would also like to see what Apple has to say about the issue.

I just decided to start a campaign against intellectually empty, fluffy phrases that state the obvious. Like saying that "X, when viewed as a tool, with its pluses and negatives and employed with thought and care can bring about positive results".

Phrases like that amount to saying that if you are thirsty drinking a glass of water helps. I mean really, who would have thought of that... Yeah, of course people are going to take a theory/approach X and go about their merry *bleep*ing ways employing it without any form of beforehand analysis and thought or monitoring?

I mean, you are, like, aware that you can also drown in that said glass of water? Or yeah, you can also die if you drink too much water. Yup...

Anyway... sorry for the rant, reading stuff like that posted by a professional just got my goat. Then again, entire careers are built exactly upon that, the continuous stating of the accepted and obvious.

I am more interested in those who confront the existing paradigms of thought and disrupt them. That is where the interesting and tasty bits are and that is what science is about, a better, more applicable, robust and provable theory will always replace the old. That is evolution, continuous improvement that counters stagnation and helps keep the gene pool vibrant.

Looks kosher... :)
 
Hey UX Researchers,

Please check out this new Excel tool that makes the quantitative analysis of card sorts super easy.

It's designed to provide a workflow as opposed to just a spread sheet to enter data into, and is intended to generally make the process of organizing card sort projects more pleasant.

Problems it solves:
1. Organize, Document, Analyse card sorts from a single, usability-focused interface.
2. It's just an Excel document so super fast, you don't need an internet connection, and you can easily share with collaborators. 
3. It handles both open and closed card sorts in the same interface using the same logic.
4. Data visualization (my expertise) makes patterns in the data stand out.
5. It's free and you can share/hack it how you like! (I didn't make it to commercialize it, I just got obsessed with the problem once I started!)

The sheets are protected but only to keep Excel novices from accidentally breaking the model- if you want to make changes or check out the formulas to see how it works you can easily unprotect it all without a password.

(Bumped this from an earlier thread with +John Romadka +Keith Kmett, CUA +Nick Rosencrans, sorry if you've already seen it but hoping to get feedback on it from this community before I circulate it any further, hope you can help!)

Here now, and then gone. The fleeting nature of life in combat is captured in a dramatic sequence of images, frame following frame within milliseconds of eachother. May they rest in peace.

Time flies... saw a blurb about using GPS tracking of orienteers with results thrown to the web for all people to gawk at (as close to realtime as possible). The funny bit? I envisioned and planned a similar system in 1997-98, too bad it never got air under its wings (too few users > no funding).

Admittedly it would have been pretty much just a technology demo given the possible userbase at that time.

Goes to show that a) ideas are cheap, b) execution is everything and c) there is a time and place for everything.

With a bit of luck and plenty of planning, perspiration and perseverance things can happen.
