Datasets changing mindsets

Hans Rosling is an entertaining and compelling presenter. He uses the now-Google-owned Public Data Explorer technology (developed by his organization Gapminder), to take you on a journey testing your concept of the developing world.

I recommend watching him in this TED talk delivered to the U.S. Department of State:

Is This The Evolution Of iPhone’s UI We All Hoped For?

This week, Apple shared a lot of new features for OSX and iOS. Some were great, others not so much. And if there’s one thing that we’re particularly worried about, it’s the ever-bloating Notification Center, Apple’s catch-all solution for the messages firing your way from half a dozen different services.

Joost van der Ree has at least one brilliant idea on how to fix the iPhone’s notification system. In the above video, disregard the earlier stuff and pay attention 35 seconds in. The idea you’re looking for is called Dynamic Badges.

Flipboard: Behind Mobile’s Most Beautiful Newsreading Magazine

When Flipboard launched on the iPad in July 2010, it was heralded as much for its design as for the novel way it aggregated and delivered news shared across multiple online networks. Thus it was described not as a social newsreader, but as a social newsreading magazine.

Credit for the design of Flipboard’s iPad app, as well as its more recent iPhone edition, is largely due to Marcos Weskamp, who has served as Flipboard’s head of design since March 2010. He works alongside two other designers, Johan Prag and Didier Hilhorst, within the broader Flipboard team.

The Art of Apps: Paper, Tweetbot, Mixel, and Piictu creators on designing beautiful apps

At the Art Of Apps gallery event in New York City last week, seven apps were projected on TV screens to display the best user interfaces iOS has to offer. In front of each screen were the creators and designers behind apps like Paper, Mixel, Tweetbot, Piictu, Path, and the upcoming Cameo. The event was curated by Khoi Vinh, one-time designer fornytimes.com, founder of iPad collage app Mixel, and influential design blogger atsubtraction.com. Even the event website, built using Splash, a new tool for creating social-network-integrated show pages, is gorgeous and very focused on “good design.”

The Obsession That Drives Apple’s Success

The marketing executive Ken Segall not only worked closely with Steve Jobs for years at both Apple and NeXT, but he was also the creative guy who came up with the iMac name. And he’s just written a book about the product marketing lessons he learned from Jobs.

Check out Eric Schmidt’s must-see Mobile World Congress keynote | VentureBeat

Google chairman Eric Schmidt’s Mobile World Congress keynotes have always been interesting, but his keynote yesterday just about floored me as he put on his futurist hat with complete sincerity.

It’s not only a good watch, it’s required viewing.

A Brief Rant on the Future of Interaction Design

As it happens, designing Future Interfaces For The Future used to be my line of work. I had the opportunity to design with real working prototypes, not green screens and After Effects, so there certainly are some interactions in the video which I’m a little skeptical of, given that I’ve actually tried them and the animators presumably haven’t. But that’s not my problem with the video.

UX Week 2011 – JON WILEY | Google

Google is in the midst of the largest redesign in its history, with more changes to come. Many have wondered who let the designers out of their cage at Google and set them on the path of making Google’s products more focused, effortless, and elastic. You’ll be surprised at the answer.
