Conference Day 2 and a modest proposal” Scott Leslie starts by discussing the tedium of yet another Powerpoint presentation .The link to Alan Levin’s comments about Powerpoint & how projects should be presented are well worth following, though you’ll learn nothing new – just remind yourself about what you shouldn’t do!
Leslie then says:
We need software that is obvious in the value it offers its end users so we aren’t forcing them to do things they don’t want to already do. We need software that recognizes users not just as the ‘operators’ of software, but as having identities that are important, identities that are the basis for rich connections and enabling possibilities. We need software that notices and records these conections and interactions in order to add even more value to those users and to other people trying to do similar things.
My complaint is that he doesn’t then go on to further define this mythical beastie!
