I’m sick of UI examples that do nothing

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

I thought the multitouch line was much cooler.

I thought the multitouch line was much cooler.

In Progress… Interactive MultiTouch Sphere. from seeper on Vimeo.

Yep I’m going to go there. There are a ton of concept UI’s that are blown up on walls and support a multitouch gestural interface. Sure they look pretty, and but a vast majority of these examples don’t do anything. I mean look at this video:
one health 0, this web 40,0″>

Tangible Multi-touch Connectivity from nearinteraction on Vimeo.

ooh look at the roundy things linked to other roundy things that we can move around. Throw some Ratatat on top of that video and it will be slick. Don’t get me wrong I love Ratatat, but I don’t love your pointless “art.” I’ve seen this shit so many god damn times now it makes me sick. What is wrong with you people. I mean you have all this time to make this thing, but you couldn’t spend a second on any reason for it to exist? It doesn’t even have to be practical, but it should be real. I saw an example app in Flash that looked just like this, albeit worked with a mouse on my desktop, 10 years ago! So come on! Let’s take all this talent and actually make something that does something.

Oh and while I’m ranting, I want to have a word with you, marketer, who saw this video and then showed it to your client. Why did you do that. This doesn’t solve any problem of theirs. Now some PM has to explain to some poor dev that they have to build one of these for Altoids or some company to be used in a bar for one night for your “Awareness” campaign. Don’t you ever do that again! You can’t measure this and your drunk friends will say anything is cool when they are drunk.

Hey, i want to make the world a better place through sexy user interfaces that make people “squee!” with delight too. So I get it, I get why you think you had to do this. Maybe you thought it would help your portfolio, and who knows it might, but anyone who actually makes real interaction will know right away this is just noise that is getting in the way of progress.

So to all of you out there making demoware without any purpose stop, think about it and come up with better idea.

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.

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, viagra 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, advice
but instead of suggested ads, viagra 40mg
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.

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.

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.

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, viagra 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, advice
but instead of suggested ads, viagra 40mg
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.

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 found this nice list of non-car ways to get around town.  Since it was buried in a random word document I thought I would share it here.  I’d give credit to the original author, sales purchase but I don’t know who they are.

recycled dresses

Originally uploaded by futileboy

I was at the Plant Amnesty’s Festival of Trees yesterday here in Seattle and was somewhat surprised to see some amazing fashion on display. I was able to snap a few pictures and this was one of my favorites.

On the left is a dress made up of mostly Cat5 cables and other computer wiring.

On the right is a vinyl record bodice made using two Bert Baccarat records. The skirt consists of a safety fence, this web rain coats and window blinds to name a few of the items.

I later leaned that the dresses were from a the local ReStore Haute Trash Fashion Show

After watching many episodes of Project Runway, my favorites were always the ones using everyday materials.

Playing around with Photosynth

Monday, April 27th, 2009

I recently started playing around with Panoramic photography by stitching a series of photos together.

I’ve been pretty pleased with the results so far.  I’ve mostly been using the stitching features of Windows Live Photo Gallery.  It’s been the easiest to use with the best results so far.  I still need to do a more scientific test of other applications.

Here’s the result of one such set of photos:

health
on Flickr” href=”http://www.flickr.com/photos/futileboy/3448784979/”>Lake Chelan Panoramic final

I took the source photos for this image and decided to give it a try in Microsoft’s Photosynth.  I did an earlier test when the service first became available, prescription but I didn’t have a good enough source set of photos to try it out with.

This set actually came out to be a full 100% Synthy.  Which is their term for how well all the photos work together in to one scene.

You can play around with the results here:

I had more photos of the scene then I used for the single panoramic, so I fed them all in to Photosynth since it seems to better with more.

Take a look and let me know what you think.

My only issue with it, is that this full 360 series of photos doesn’t seem to be recognized as such. So you can’t just spin around and around.

Making Wordles

Monday, November 24th, 2008

I put together a couple of Wordles recently using the ManyEyes software.  There’s actually a bit more art to it then I thought.  You really have to spend a good amount of time to find the source documents that you want mapped out. 

The first one is for WPF

WPFWordMap

 

The other one is for Internet Explorer 8

Back home from PDC and I’m still processing all the information that I put in to my brain.  There was a lot to take in and I think it will be a while before we start to see the effects of all this new technology that was introduced.  Congratulations to Microsoft for continuing to innovate the PC.

One the big announcements at PDC was the Windows Azure platform. It’s a cloud services platform hosted in Microsoft data centers, view which provides an operating system and a set of developer services that can be used individually or together. 

servicesPlatform

Currently it brings together several of Microsoft’s leading products to the cloud for use with the applications we create.   The following services are currently included in the platform:

  • Live Services  provides developers with an social applications frameworks and experiences, across a range of digital devices.
  • Microsoft SQL Servicesin the cloud as web-based services, allows for  storage of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data.
  • Microsoft .NET Services Microsoft-hosted, highly scalable, developer-oriented services that provide key building blocks required by many cloud-based and cloud-aware applications.
  • Microsoft SharePoint ServicesIt’s still a little vague how these service will work with Azure.
  • Dynamics CRM Services Not much to say yet here, very little information has been released so far about it, once I learn more I’ll be sure to post it here.

Back home from PDC and I’m still processing all the information that I put in to my brain.  There was a lot to take in and I think it will be a while before we start to see the effects of all this new technology that was introduced.  Congratulations to Microsoft for continuing to innovate the PC.

One the big announcements at PDC was the Windows Azure platform. It’s a cloud services platform hosted in Microsoft data centers, view which provides an operating system and a set of developer services that can be used individually or together.

Currently it brings together several of Microsoft’s leading products to the cloud for use with the applications we create.   The following services are currently included in the platform:

  • Live Services  provides developers with an social applications frameworks and experiences, across a range of digital devices.
  • Microsoft SQL Servicesin the cloud as web-based services, allows for  storage of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data.
  • Microsoft .NET Services Microsoft-hosted, highly scalable, developer-oriented services that provide key building blocks required by many cloud-based and cloud-aware applications.
  • Microsoft SharePoint ServicesIt’s still a little vague how these service will work with Azure.
  • Dynamics CRM Services Not much to say yet here, very little information has been released so far about it, once I learn more I’ll be sure to post it here.

I tried this out in build 6801, shop but it doesn’t work there yet. I can’t wait to get the new features.

Microsoft PDC 2008

Microsoft PDC 2008

What’s PDC? It’s the Professional Developers Conference put on by Microsoft. It’s one of the biggest events they put on for developers. I’m really excited about this one because of the Windows 7 announcements and sessions. I’ll do my best to live / semi-live blog the event. I’m going to do a test an use my OLPC for blogging at the event since it’s so much easier to lug around. Of course maybe someone from MS will see me running Sugar as the OS and help hook me up with the version of Windows XP that runs on it instead :P.

update: okay that was a bust. As soon as I started blogging the WiFi dropped out and I lost connectivity. So I switched to my phone and started using the WordPress for iPhone app. Then the cell network started getting throttled as everyone else started doing the same and then it died. Sigh. All this technology and I was just stuck in dead silence. The press seem to have their own private secue WiFi so they were able to stay online.

Anyhoo, dosage I’ll be posted some updates today going forward with all the information I’ve learned. I’ll be install Windows 7 soon.
