Data Curation - Council on Library and Information Resources - 1 views

  •  
    I came here trying to get a better feel for what "data curation" really means. I found the data management "stack model" explanation in this 5 minute video to be helpful.

Sketching For Better Mobile Experiences - 1 views

  •  
    An interesting article on using sketches in the collaboration within a team. While this article concentrates on mobile solutions, sketching can be used for websites as well. A pull-quote from the article: "Learning from sketches is based largely on the ambiguous nature of their representation. (Sketches) do not specify everything and lend themselves to, and encourage, various interpretations that were not consciously integrated into them by their creator."

JISC infoKits - 0 views

  •  
    I came to this site via a Tweet about the "Evaluating digital services" infoKit which is pretty interesting. So are the others! "Our infoKits contain a wealth of 'self-help' material, from simple methodologies to manage projects, risks, change and processes; to image galleries of technology-rich spaces and reflections from leaders to learners showcasing the inspiring use of technology across the sectors."

SurveyMonkey CEO Gets Home By 5:30 PM - 0 views

  •  
    Thought the Team would enjoy. Very few people on their death bed have said, "I should have spent more time at work." FROM THE WEBSITE: SurveyMonkey has been profitable from almost day one and refuses to go public. SurveyMonkey has done all of this while creating a culture that enables the company's CEO, Dave Goldberg, to leave the office by 5:30 p.m.

The Mobile Browser Is Dead, Long Live The App - 7 views

  •  
    If we accept this, are there implications for our aim to design a responsive site?

    Wow, very interesting. The numbers tell the story of the browser use declining. The great increase was social media; people still use the browser on a computer to access the social media site. They don't download a Facebook application to install on their computer-they use the browser. But mobile-wise, that's a different beast. I still think we should create a site that is accessible to mobile devices rather than create an app. I think in the coming years, though, iOS/Android developers will probably be job positions here at UT. Great post, thanks for sharing.

    I take issue with focusing on the amount of time spent in apps vs. mobile web. If you look at the breakdown, 68% of app time is on pure entertainment activities like gaming, social media and YouTube. Which makes total sense that people spend a disproportionate amount of time on those things. Plus that guy looks really annoying!

    RE: Mason-Good points, Señor Mason. But using inflammatory titles gets people reading. My next post will be "LIBRARIES ARE DEAD-EVERYTHING IS ON GOOGLE, ANYWAY".

Tactile Design Kit, by Megan Erin Miller - 0 views

  • be powerful tools when working with clients on website design and discovery projects. They help create structured limitations, within which productive conversations can take place and decisions can be made faster. Use this kit to help control scope and manage your client conversations, or simply use it as a tool for developing designs and websites faster.
  •  
    Might be cool to try with clients or maybe pilot test it on the TIS section of the staff site

Zurb Uses Kia RWD as a Good Example. Yikes. - 1 views

  •  
    Zurb story here: http://zurb.com/responsive/reading Kia's site is: http://www.kia.com Number 6 is Kia's new RWD. I went to the kia.com site and the RWD was pretty awful. * MIN WIDTH: -- images and text are blurry. -- horizontal nav completly disappears. -- the 3 stacked horizontal bars that should pull up a menu.....don't. They drop the main page and you're stuck facing a carousel and some monumental horizontal and vertical scrolling to see only models of vehicles. * MAX WIDTH: -- they don't have a max width and try to stretch into infinity. Stretched across 2 or 3 of my displays and I have the full site.....blurry. * MOBILE SITE: -- it's a mini-version of the main desktop site. -- this works well on the iPad in both vertical and horizontal orientation. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I've seen great RWD when the min- and max-width are defined and the three horizontal bars become what used to be the horizontal navigation. But Kia's desktop RWD fall short in my opinion. If anyone ever reads this, I wonder what their impressions would be.
