Like my previous post about Social Technologies I wanted to put together a better classification model in place for digital marketing. Often it seems terms are thrown around without much standardization.

If you live in Seattle you know this is a car town.  It’s nearly impossible to get to some points without the use of car.  It’s sort of sad really that a young city that appears to be full of environmentally conscious  people haven’t done more to make this city have better mass transit options.

I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of days now and what we really need is a Twitter affiliate ad network like service.  I often post tweets about products I like or things that I find interesting.  In most cases that is valuable to those companies.  I’ve done some small tests with my twitter account @futileboy and found that my click through is very high for each post about 7% of my followers click my links.  Which is a much higher number then online ads get.  Of course that’s because my links are not always trying to sell something.  On twitter if you stop being genuine the people see that and stop following you.

Aside from all that, cheap
it would be great if there was service for users of twitter to make a little money off of their recommendations.  What I would like to see is a service that’s sort of like Google Adsense, remedy but instead of suggested ads, a user would type in the product they are about to promote and then if available receive a URL with their code and the clients in it. along with a short URL version that’s easy to post to Twitter. 

Companies could go one step further with this, on demand adverting, and even offer discounts to top influencer’s followers.  Which in turn would give the tweeter more street cred.  Just imagine a tweet from someone you follow pointing out a product you’re interested in and a discount if you click the link now.  This may be just enough to push someone in to purchasing.

Would this service get abused? OF course it will.  However the natural filtering process of over advertising will ultimately make authentic influencers stand out.

Sure it’s a little evil, but if someone is willing to pay for it and someone is willing to take that money in the offer then the service should exist.

Has technology made the crappy tasks better, or even enjoyable?

UX titles

This tweet from Jeffrey Zeldman really sparked my thinking about this issue.

UX Titles have always been a discussion topic at IA Summits and other UX conferences. I myself have had a laundry list of titles from Information Architect, story Digital Strategist, viagra Experience Designer, troche and even Creative Director. My personal favorite is User Experience Designer, even though it’s a little long I’ve always felt like it required the smallest amount of explanation. That being said, I do believe that the different titles actually do mean different things. The challenge for most UX people is that in the end they always end up wearing a lot of hats.

Here’s a list of UX related titles and their specific tasks.

That being said, I do believe that the different titles actually do mean different things. The challenge for most UX people is that in the end they always end up wearing a lot of hats.

That being said, I do believe that the different titles actually do mean different things. The challenge for most UX people is that in the end they always end up wearing a lot of hats.

Here’s a list of UX related titles and their specific tasks.

Research

Initial research around the application, capsule service. Interviews of stakeholders and customers. Reviewing competition.

Outlines

Gathering information in outline form can be an extremely helpful way to quickly collect short bits of information like product names and then group and sort them under different headings. I almost always start my projects here. It really helps me see the logical connections between the information and helps me ask questions about the classification and naming systems that are already in place.

UI Flow Diagrams

User interface flow diagrams are created to model the interactions that a user has with a product or service. The diagram primarily will reflect the behavioral view of a single use case along with some optional pathways.

Paper Prototypes

Paper prototyping is a variation of usability testing where representative users perform realistic tasks by interacting with a paper version of the interface that is manipulated by a person ‘playing computer, neurosurgeon ’ who doesn’t explain how the interface is intended to work.

Wireframes

A wireframe is a basic visual guide used in interface design to suggest the structure of an interface and relationships between its pages. Typically, wireframes are completed before any artwork is developed.

Functional Requirements document

This documentation describes the behavior of a system. The documentation typically describes what is needed by the user as well as requested properties of inputs and outputs.

Usability studies

It is a technique used to evaluate a product by actually testing it on users. This can be seen as an irreplaceable usability practice, since it gives direct input on how real users use the system. This is in contrast with usability inspection methods where experts use different methods to evaluate a user interface without involving users.

Use cases

Use cases describe “who” can do “what” within the system being designed. The use case technique is used to capture a system’s behavioral requirements by detailing scenario-driven threads through the functional requirements.

User Studies

Observing how people interact with products, services and experiences in order to come up with new solutions. User studies can help reframe a problem in a new way. They can also help see things that have gone unnoticed before.

Content Strategy

Details how content is/should be used on a site, how to increase value

Content Audit

Records type/location of site content, recommends action for each item

Content Schedule

UX titles

This tweet from Jeffrey Zeldman really sparked my thinking about this issue.

UX Titles have always been a discussion topic at IA Summits and other UX conferences. I myself have had a laundry list of titles from Information Architect, story Digital Strategist, viagra Experience Designer, troche and even Creative Director. My personal favorite is User Experience Designer, even though it’s a little long I’ve always felt like it required the smallest amount of explanation. That being said, I do believe that the different titles actually do mean different things. The challenge for most UX people is that in the end they always end up wearing a lot of hats.

Here’s a list of UX related titles and their specific tasks.

Research

Initial research around the application, capsule service. Interviews of stakeholders and customers. Reviewing competition.

Outlines

Gathering information in outline form can be an extremely helpful way to quickly collect short bits of information like product names and then group and sort them under different headings. I almost always start my projects here. It really helps me see the logical connections between the information and helps me ask questions about the classification and naming systems that are already in place.

UI Flow Diagrams

User interface flow diagrams are created to model the interactions that a user has with a product or service. The diagram primarily will reflect the behavioral view of a single use case along with some optional pathways.

Paper Prototypes

Paper prototyping is a variation of usability testing where representative users perform realistic tasks by interacting with a paper version of the interface that is manipulated by a person ‘playing computer, neurosurgeon ’ who doesn’t explain how the interface is intended to work.

Wireframes

A wireframe is a basic visual guide used in interface design to suggest the structure of an interface and relationships between its pages. Typically, wireframes are completed before any artwork is developed.

Functional Requirements document

This documentation describes the behavior of a system. The documentation typically describes what is needed by the user as well as requested properties of inputs and outputs.

Usability studies

It is a technique used to evaluate a product by actually testing it on users. This can be seen as an irreplaceable usability practice, since it gives direct input on how real users use the system. This is in contrast with usability inspection methods where experts use different methods to evaluate a user interface without involving users.

Use cases

Use cases describe “who” can do “what” within the system being designed. The use case technique is used to capture a system’s behavioral requirements by detailing scenario-driven threads through the functional requirements.

User Studies

Observing how people interact with products, services and experiences in order to come up with new solutions. User studies can help reframe a problem in a new way. They can also help see things that have gone unnoticed before.

Content Strategy

Details how content is/should be used on a site, how to increase value

Content Audit

Records type/location of site content, recommends action for each item

Content Schedule

Plans how content should be re-purposed/created for a site, who should do it, etc.

Search Strategy

Outlines how search should work for a site, what technologies can be used, how it integrates with other sites

Search Interface Design

UX Titles have always been a discussion topic at IA Summits and other UX conferences. I myself have had a laundry list of titles from Information Architect, story Digital Strategist, viagra Experience Designer, troche and even Creative Director. My personal favorite is User Experience Designer, even though it’s a little long I’ve always felt like it required the smallest amount of explanation. That being said, I do believe that the different titles actually do mean different things. The challenge for most UX people is that in the end they always end up wearing a lot of hats.

That being said, I do believe that the different titles actually do mean different things. The challenge for most UX people is that in the end they always end up wearing a lot of hats.

I think a good list of titles and their primary focus really needs to be created.

Research

Initial research around the application, capsule service. Interviews of stakeholders and customers. Reviewing competition.

Outlines

Gathering information in outline form can be an extremely helpful way to quickly collect short bits of information like product names and then group and sort them under different headings. I almost always start my projects here. It really helps me see the logical connections between the information and helps me ask questions about the classification and naming systems that are already in place.

UI Flow Diagrams

User interface flow diagrams are created to model the interactions that a user has with a product or service. The diagram primarily will reflect the behavioral view of a single use case along with some optional pathways.

Paper Prototypes

Paper prototyping is a variation of usability testing where representative users perform realistic tasks by interacting with a paper version of the interface that is manipulated by a person ‘playing computer, neurosurgeon ’ who doesn’t explain how the interface is intended to work.

Wireframes

A wireframe is a basic visual guide used in interface design to suggest the structure of an interface and relationships between its pages. Typically, wireframes are completed before any artwork is developed.

Functional Requirements document

This documentation describes the behavior of a system. The documentation typically describes what is needed by the user as well as requested properties of inputs and outputs.

Usability studies

It is a technique used to evaluate a product by actually testing it on users. This can be seen as an irreplaceable usability practice, since it gives direct input on how real users use the system. This is in contrast with usability inspection methods where experts use different methods to evaluate a user interface without involving users.

Use cases

Use cases describe “who” can do “what” within the system being designed. The use case technique is used to capture a system’s behavioral requirements by detailing scenario-driven threads through the functional requirements.

User Studies

Observing how people interact with products, services and experiences in order to come up with new solutions. User studies can help reframe a problem in a new way. They can also help see things that have gone unnoticed before.

Content Strategy

Details how content is/should be used on a site, how to increase value

Content Audit

Records type/location of site content, recommends action for each item

Content Schedule

Plans how content should be re-purposed/created for a site, who should do it, etc.

Search Strategy

Outlines how search should work for a site, what technologies can be used, how it integrates with other sites

Search Interface Design

Plans how the search system will ingest queries and produce a Search Engine Results Page, plus the interface design for that page

Taxonomy Strategy

Outline how to design a taxonomy(ies) for a site, and how they will work

Meta Data Schema

Detailed model of the taxonomy(ies) using customer data

Enterprise Content Management Strategy

Overall plan for how an ECM can be used on a customer’s site

Content Modeling

Plan that details content types and content elements within a content management system

Content Publishing Workflows

Details the entire lifecycle of content for a site, from creation to archive

iphonedrawI find that I can’t clean my own home without my ipod or something playing from iTunes.  It’s not always music either, prosthetic
I’m listing to podcasts, asthma
audiobooks and downloadable versions of radio shows.  Because the technology has made is so easy, therapy
I’m consuming more media more often. Most of all I’m consuming it at times when I’m doing other less enjoyable things.  Things like cleaning, mowing, or even just sitting in traffic.

Let’s step in to my time machine here and visit my ghosts of crappy jobs past.  One of the worst jobs I had was cleaning a grocery store at night.  First the bakery and then the butcher area.  The bakery wasn’t so bad, but it was hours of scrubbing the same large cooking sheet over and over again, in lots of nasty chemicals.  The butcher room, was like cleaning up after the most violent first person shooter you’ve ever played. Meaty carnage was always everywhere.  The belt saw had a tendency to throw little tiny pieces of meat all over the place and coat the walls and floor. Okay, maybe that’s too much detail here.  The point is that I would have killed myself if I didn’t have tapes of Jimi Hendrix on my Sony Sport Walkman.  It was the big yellow one with the airtight seal.  I had that thing for ages and it traveled all over the place with me.

Sure, audio cassette tape was just about the worst medium there has been for music, but it was the best I had at the time.  I had boxes of homemade mix tapes and purchased tapes.  It was an art form to make the mix tape back then,  I had one of those boom boxes with the dual cassette bays.  I would search around the source tape for the song and then un-pause the carefully paused to record blank tape.  Mistakes would happen all the time and you would have to rewind or fast forward to get to the right spot.  With some of my favorite tapes of the time, like Synchronicity by the Police, I was able to visual find any song by how much tape was on either side of the spool.  You could look in there and next to the markers in the little window, find just the right spot quickly. The worst thing that could happen was when the tape would run out when you knew that last song would have been just an amazing way to end the tape side.  It was tedious at times, but I always put my heart in to it.  Getting it just right meant so much.  There was an art form to filling that amount of time per side just right.

It wasn’t about the tape cassette or the process of making my mix tapes, it was always about the music.  I made those tapes to have the music with me, for those bus rides, long family road trips, train rides, reading or giving away to friends.

Getting back to my original point, today it’s so much easier to bring a vast library of content with you in your pocket.  Gone are the days of having to worry about how much time I have to fill.  Side A and Side B don’t exist anymore.  In my opinion this is a good thing, because it removes the limits of the medium.

The dishwashers, janitors, and butcher room cleaners can escape from the mediocracy of their jobs and bring their own enjoyment.  They can listen to the Audible version of Pride and Prejudice and catching up on the classics.  Instead they could be listening to the Science Friday podcast and learning about the weeks latest news in science.  Maybe, they just want to listen to Slayer, because that’s what they need then.  It doesn’t matter, the point is that inside most everyones pocket these days is a device that can do this.  MP3 players are cheaper and cheaper ever day.  Most cell phones support audio playback.

I’ve just been looking at one aspect of all of this too, just the audio side.  It goes to reason that being more closely connected to your friends and family through devices like the iphone, or any cell phone for that matter, makes the hard difficult times easier to get through.  Nothing is better then getting a text message from a friend, while slogging through some gutter cleaning. It’s so much easier to stay connected. You can tweet out a quick message without a boss noticing and organize a meet up with your friends in much less time.

Eventually, I hope we all have robots to do the work that people don’t want to.  That way, we can all just go back to enjoying life and having more leisure time.   Of course that’s another story for another time.

Pardon me, I’m just going to slip these headphones on for moment while I go take care of that dirty floor.

UX titles

This tweet from Jeffrey Zeldman really sparked my thinking about this issue.

UX Titles have always been a discussion topic at IA Summits and other UX conferences. I myself have had a laundry list of titles from Information Architect, therapist ophthalmologist Digital Strategist, prostate Experience Designer, and even Creative Director. My personal favorite is User Experience Designer, even though it’s a little long I’ve always felt like it required the smallest amount of explanation. That being said, I do believe that the different titles actually do mean different things. The challenge for most UX people is that in the end they always end up wearing a lot of hats.

I think a good list of titles and their primary focus really needs to be created.

This is a nice presentation of information. The only thing I disagree with is comparing myspace users to the size of a country. That falls in to the apples to oranges comparison category for me.

Fairwell to Microsoft from David Stutz

Wednesday, June 25th, 2008

I’ve got a problem.  A problem with Outlook and Exchange.  You see I have two exchange accounts on two different servers.  This is problem that I thought was rare at first, information pills
but I’m finding more and more that folks who work in the consulting space are having this challenge when their clients are using MS Exchange. 

On my mac, tadalafil
this isn’t really a big problem because I Entourage actually supports multiple Exchange servers.

On the PC side though, Outlook wants nothing to do with my multiple Exchange servers accounts.

To set up support for two accounts I had to go in to the control panel and locate the mail icon.

image

Then from there users have to figure out the very abstract user interface of what to do next.

image

Nope not “E-mail Accounts”  I need to create a new Profile.

image

I’ve already created a new profile, but this is where you’d click Add.

Give it a name that explains the account to you

image

Then you have to fill out this for and will try to auto configure your account

image

These seems to work most of the time.

So now you have two profiles.  Here’s where it gets annoying.  These profiles have no awareness of each other.  So if you get a meeting request in one and accept it, it will only be visible in that accounts calendar.

Then when you switch profiles you have no way to take that information with you.

Here’s where I’m using Google Calendar Sync.

It’s not perfect, but it does help.

image 

Once set up it will sync my Google calendar with my Outlook calendar.  Then when I switch profiles from one Outlook session to the next.  Google’s Calendar Sync stays active.  It will then begin syncing the information from my current profile.  

Of course the big issue here is that I have to continue switching my outlook profiles back and forth during the day to make sure all the information is up to date.  It’s still possible to receive a meeting request for the same time in both accounts.  Accept in one switch profiles.  Then accept in the other before Google get’s the calendars synced and I can create a conflict.

What Exchange really need to do is offer this a service feed directly from the server so that I don’t have to go through Outlook to activate all.

Phew!  That’s a lot of work just to make sure I don’t double book myself.

Of course this all gets much worse once you start to open yourself to other scheduling services like evite and upcoming.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that computers are supposed to make life easier not harder.

There are more challenges when it comes to optimizing for search engines to consume your content if it is a dynamic Rich UI application that doesn’t rely on Ajax. While Google is able to pick up Flash SWF files during its crawl, gynecologist
this does not guarantee that the content is parsed correctly or given the same weight as any other file formats or a pure HTML/AJAX page. Worse, disorder
if the application uses a web service, page
how can it be guaranteed that all the pages are crawled and returned correctly?

In most cases you will need to make sure that the page hosting the application has some html text that describes the application and what it offers. So in essence treat the page in the same way you would HTML.

When possible expose the content of the application so that it too can be indexed.

Simple Silverlight application – XAML to XHTML with XSLT

For a Silverlight element that contains all of its content in the XAML the best method would be to transforms the XAML using XSLT into friendly XHTML. The goal is to contain the translated XAML into a <div> element that would be replaced by the Silverlight control. Search engines would find the XHTML while browsers with Silverlight installed would see the Silverlight app.

 

   1: <div id="SLHost">
   2:     <asp:Xml ID="XHTML" runat="server" DocumentSource="seo.xaml"
   3:   TransformSource="XAML2XHTML.xslt" EnableViewState="False"/>
   4:     <script type="text/JavaScript">
   5:         createSilverlight();
   6:     </script>
   7: </div>

Then use the following XAML2XHTML.xslt

   1: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
   2:  
   3: <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
   4:     xmlns:sl="http://schemas.microsoft.com/client/2007"
   5:     xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
   6:     exclude-result-prefixes="sl">
   7:  
   8:   <xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes" indent="yes"/>
   9:  
  10:   <xsl:template match="/">
  11:     <xsl:comment>This is the text that is in the Silverlight XAML:</xsl:comment>
  12:     <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/>
  13:   </xsl:template>
  14:  
  15:   <xsl:template match="sl:Canvas">
  16:     <div>
  17:       <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/>
  18:     </div>
  19:   </xsl:template>
  20:  
  21:   <xsl:template match="node()"/>
  22:  
  23:   <xsl:template match="sl:Image">
  24:     <div>
  25:       <img src="{@Source}"/>
  26:     </div>
  27:   </xsl:template>
  28:   <xsl:template match="sl:MediaElement">
  29:     <div class="Media">
  30:       <a href="{@Source}">Media</a>
  31:     </div>
  32:   </xsl:template>
  33:  
  34:   <xsl:template match="sl:TextBlock">
  35:     <div>
  36:       <xsl:value-of select="@Text"/>
  37:       <xsl:value-of select="text()"/>
  38:       <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/>
  39:     </div>
  40:   </xsl:template>
  41:   <xsl:template match="sl:LineBreak">
  42:     <br/>
  43:   </xsl:template>
  44:  
  45:   <xsl:template match="sl:Run">
  46:     <span>
  47:       <xsl:value-of select="@Text"/>
  48:       <xsl:value-of select="text()"/>
  49:     </span>
  50:   </xsl:template>
  51: </xsl:stylesheet>

 

Handling more advanced Silverlight applications

How do you design an application that could have dynamic content and robust interaction while at the same time enable a web crawler to understand and categorize the underlying content correctly? Unfortunately there is no simple answer or single correct answer. It depends highly on the application’s purpose. In some situations there will be no way to offer the content of the application up to spider outside of the application. In this case it’s best to have as much meta information on the page hosting the application as possible. By following the standard HTML methods in this document you can still extend the indexability of your application by making sure external links are properly formatted and that high ranking sites link to your application.

Detect and Serve

It requires a little more work up front from a development standpoint to go this route, but if you really have a strong need to get the content in your application indexed then this will be the best approach. The goal is to develop the code of the site to be delivered in multiple formats based on the user agent that is accessing the content. This isn’t all that uncommon anyway with the large range of browser and devices out there that are consuming the web already. Most applications are built with the data stored separately from the interaction in a database or local XML document. The site would have to be built so that it can serve up HTML pages for those who don’t have Flex/Flash/Silverlight installed. Plus, we could potentially change these pages for mobile devices like the iPhone that don’t yet support Flash or Silverlight.

It’s also recommend to have some enticement or value proposition to explain to real users why it would be beneficial to add the plug-ins required to get the optimal experience.

The goal would be to have clients that have the plug-in or runtime installed, would be provided the rich interaction. On those that don’t, a functional page in HTML will be provided. More importantly, to the search engines, these pages that are generated will be tagged and indexed correctly, making the content of our applications visible and increase their visibility.

Handling more advanced Silverlight applications

How do you design an application that could have dynamic content and robust interaction while at the same time enable a web crawler to understand and categorize the underlying content correctly? Unfortunately there is no simple answer or single correct answer. It depends highly on the application’s purpose. In some situations there will be no way to offer the content of the application up to spider outside of the application. In this case it’s best to have as much meta information on the page hosting the application as possible. By following the standard HTML methods in this document you can still extend the indexability of your application by making sure external links are properly formatted and that high ranking sites link to your application.

Detect and Serve

It requires a little more work up front from a development standpoint to go this route, but if you really have a strong need to get the content in your application indexed then this will be the best approach. The goal is to develop the code of the site to be delivered in multiple formats based on the user agent that is accessing the content. This isn’t all that uncommon anyway with the large range of browser and devices out there that are consuming the web already. Most applications are built with the data stored separately from the interaction in a database or local XML document. The site would have to be built so that it can serve up HTML pages for those who don’t have Flex/Flash/Silverlight installed. Plus, we could potentially change these pages for mobile devices like the iPhone that don’t yet support Flash or Silverlight.

It’s also recommend to have some enticement or value proposition to explain to real users why it would be beneficial to add the plug-ins required to get the optimal experience.

The goal would be to have clients that have the plug-in or runtime installed, would be provided the rich interaction. On those that don’t, a functional page in HTML will be provided. More importantly, to the search engines, these pages that are generated will be tagged and indexed correctly, making the content of our applications visible and increase their visibility.

I’ve got a problem.  A problem with Outlook and Exchange.  You see I have two exchange accounts on two different servers.  This is problem that I thought was rare at first, information pills
but I’m finding more and more that folks who work in the consulting space are having this challenge when their clients are using MS Exchange. 

On my mac, tadalafil
this isn’t really a big problem because I Entourage actually supports multiple Exchange servers.

On the PC side though, Outlook wants nothing to do with my multiple Exchange servers accounts.

To set up support for two accounts I had to go in to the control panel and locate the mail icon.

image

Then from there users have to figure out the very abstract user interface of what to do next.

image

Nope not “E-mail Accounts”  I need to create a new Profile.

image

I’ve already created a new profile, but this is where you’d click Add.

Give it a name that explains the account to you

image

Then you have to fill out this for and will try to auto configure your account

image

These seems to work most of the time.

So now you have two profiles.  Here’s where it gets annoying.  These profiles have no awareness of each other.  So if you get a meeting request in one and accept it, it will only be visible in that accounts calendar.

Then when you switch profiles you have no way to take that information with you.

Here’s where I’m using Google Calendar Sync.

It’s not perfect, but it does help.

image 

Once set up it will sync my Google calendar with my Outlook calendar.  Then when I switch profiles from one Outlook session to the next.  Google’s Calendar Sync stays active.  It will then begin syncing the information from my current profile.  

Of course the big issue here is that I have to continue switching my outlook profiles back and forth during the day to make sure all the information is up to date.  It’s still possible to receive a meeting request for the same time in both accounts.  Accept in one switch profiles.  Then accept in the other before Google get’s the calendars synced and I can create a conflict.

What Exchange really need to do is offer this a service feed directly from the server so that I don’t have to go through Outlook to activate all.

Phew!  That’s a lot of work just to make sure I don’t double book myself.

Of course this all gets much worse once you start to open yourself to other scheduling services like evite and upcoming.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that computers are supposed to make life easier not harder.

There are more challenges when it comes to optimizing for search engines to consume your content if it is a dynamic Rich UI application that doesn’t rely on Ajax. While Google is able to pick up Flash SWF files during its crawl, gynecologist
this does not guarantee that the content is parsed correctly or given the same weight as any other file formats or a pure HTML/AJAX page. Worse, disorder
if the application uses a web service, page
how can it be guaranteed that all the pages are crawled and returned correctly?

In most cases you will need to make sure that the page hosting the application has some html text that describes the application and what it offers. So in essence treat the page in the same way you would HTML.

When possible expose the content of the application so that it too can be indexed.

Simple Silverlight application – XAML to XHTML with XSLT

For a Silverlight element that contains all of its content in the XAML the best method would be to transforms the XAML using XSLT into friendly XHTML. The goal is to contain the translated XAML into a <div> element that would be replaced by the Silverlight control. Search engines would find the XHTML while browsers with Silverlight installed would see the Silverlight app.

 

   1: <div id="SLHost">
   2:     <asp:Xml ID="XHTML" runat="server" DocumentSource="seo.xaml"
   3:   TransformSource="XAML2XHTML.xslt" EnableViewState="False"/>
   4:     <script type="text/JavaScript">
   5:         createSilverlight();
   6:     </script>
   7: </div>

Then use the following XAML2XHTML.xslt

   1: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
   2:  
   3: <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
   4:     xmlns:sl="http://schemas.microsoft.com/client/2007"
   5:     xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
   6:     exclude-result-prefixes="sl">
   7:  
   8:   <xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes" indent="yes"/>
   9:  
  10:   <xsl:template match="/">
  11:     <xsl:comment>This is the text that is in the Silverlight XAML:</xsl:comment>
  12:     <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/>
  13:   </xsl:template>
  14:  
  15:   <xsl:template match="sl:Canvas">
  16:     <div>
  17:       <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/>

  39:     </div>
  40:   </xsl:template>
  41:   <xsl:template match="sl:LineBreak">

Digging in against open source commoditization won’t work – it would be like digging in against the Internet, which Microsoft tried for a while before getting wise. Any move towards cutting off alternatives by limiting interoperability or integration options would be fraught with danger, since it would enrage customers, accelerate the divergence of the open source platform, and have other undesirable results. Despite this, Microsoft is at risk of following this path, due to the corporate delusion that goes by many names: “better together,” “unified platform,” and “integrated software.” There is false hope in Redmond that these outmoded approaches to software integration will attract and keep international markets, governments, academics, and most importantly, innovators, safely within the Microsoft sphere of influence. But they won’t.

Exciting new networked applications are being written. Time is not standing still. Microsoft must survive and prosper by learning from the open source software movement and by borrowing from and improving its techniques. Open source software is as large and powerful a wave as the Internet was, and is rapidly accreting into a legitimate alternative to Windows. It can and should be harnessed. To avoid dire consequences, Microsoft should favor an approach that tolerates and embraces the diversity of the open source approach, especially when network-based integration is involved. There are many clever and motivated people out there, who have many different reasons to avoid buying directly into a Microsoft proprietary stack. Microsoft must employ diplomacy to woo these accounts; stubborn insistence will be both counterproductive and ineffective. Microsoft cannot prosper during the open source wave as an island, with a defenses built out of litigation and proprietary protocols.

I think it’s taken many years, but it does feel like Microsoft is starting to actually do just this.

I have often wondered why they don’t open up their free software to public as open source or shared source. I’d start with the web technologies Internet Explorer, Messenger, and all the Live services applications.

Live Mesh in use

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

I found this ad today while doing a little research about Microsoft’s SharePoint Server

image

I very much like the juxtaposition of Mary Kay “Enriching Women’s Lives” and Grand Theft Auto

It’s pure magic.

I wouldn’t have guessed that this ad was a good idea on this page as it is.  Let alone the conflict that occurs with the featured quote author.

I’m just saying.

I managed to convince some of my co-workers to start using Live Mesh as a lightweight collaboration tool.  The experience has been interesting so far.  We’re all  working with one shared folder at the moment.  Since the features are pretty limited in the preview that’s about the best we can do.

One of the first things that really surprised me was how limited it is at understanding what’s going on with a document that is being “shared.”  For example we’re all working on one Excel document.  A real simple list of information.  If two or more of us have it open, sildenafil then who ever saves it last overwrites the version.  The history in the News section can be a little delayed at times while things sync so it’s not always obvious that someone else is editing the document. 

I was happy to see that the service did notice an issue and gave me a chance to save my version with a different name.  But it seemed to take a couple of minutes before I saw the notification in the right hand Mesh bar.  I’ll see if I can re-create it so I can get some screen caps.

I can’t wait until there is better application integration.  It would have been super nice to let me know that some else had it open still.  And better yet notified me in the app that it had changed.  Most of the office apps have a merge features built in.

I’d also like to see a way to share areas of a document.  For example, in Excel, it would be cool to define a Mesh enabled range of fields and allow for real time sharing of those fields.  So that when someone else updates them, I could except the change and see it in my working document.  Same could be true in Word.  Then it would be like SubEthaEdit only with all the features of Word.

I’d like to talk about the News feature of Mesh next, but I think I’m going to keep that as an entry of it’s own.  I have a lot to say about it.

Clay Shirky on Cognitive Surplus

Friday, May 2nd, 2008

While I was at the Web 2.0 Expo last week I saw Clay Shirky give a talk on Cognitive Surplus. Out of all the things I learned at the event this one has really stuck with me. You can find the the full transcription online as well.

I need to get his new book “Here Comes Everybody” which is about organizing without organizations. You can watch the interview of him discussing the book on the Colbert Report.
