If you have any experience with SharePoint as a document management platform today, you know that most organizations struggle to use it effectively. You’re also likely familiar with the negative impacts that typically result from using SharePoint ineffectively: a proliferation of sites, often on a proliferation of SharePoint versions, with no clear standards on what documents should (and shouldn’t) be stored there or how, no clear guidelines for users on how to classify their documen Topic: Information Management.

The 10 Commandments of Typography
For those who believe that user experience can be handed off as a deliverable—likewireframes—this process might make a little sense. For UX practitioners, however, the end product is the user experience, so the UX team needs to be involved all along the way, up until the very end, ensuring the final product is the best experience it can be. The UX team can’t just pass off a concept and turn it loose. They have to stay involved. They have to lead, and not in the traditional authoritarian sense, but with humility and bycommunicating the importance of user-focused design to the entire project team.

You probably already know by now that you should speak with customers and test your product ideas before building them. What you probably don’t know is that you might be making some of the most common mistakes when running your experiments.

In the past, I’ve written about the value of UX organizations and UX leadership. The conversation with Vitorio brought to light yet another role within the larger UX community: the UX Connector. As I am defining the role, the UX Connector knows the local leaders of various organizations, keeps track of and posts UX events across organizations, and maintains a bird’s eye view of the community as a whole. The UX Connector’s web and social media resources are often the first stop for those new to a particular geographic area and help them get a lay of the land. Their communications also supply short-term visitors with current UX happenings while they are in town.

Launching the app, you are hit with a sign up screen. Unlike Instagram, Amen doesn’t reveal any of its content before sign up. That’s disappointing although at least they do not force you to use a Facebook account.
After signup, you are taken to a screen full of updates by users you are supposedly already following. Amen has taken the unfortunate decision to automatically follow all existing users in your Facebook friends (who will get a notification about it) regardless of whether you intended to follow them or not. This list is completed by a selection of what appears to be recommended users (staff and early investors in the startup it seems). While a full screen greeting you after sign up is better than an empty one, Amen could have redirected you to the Popular section and let you follow your friends (and recommended users) at your own pace and will.
Although the app could do a better job at leading you to share your own “stands about the best or worst people, places, things and ideas”, the sheer number of opinions already shared on Amen stand for how responsive and smart the input interface feels. Your first opinion on a place is prefilled with the closest point of interest in your neighborhood. It even recognizes the type of restaurant you enter and will offer pre-filled statements for People and Things in case you run out of inspiration. A future version of the app will hopefully suggest more personally relevant content (pulled out of my Likes on Facebook for example) than the random statements about Matt Damon or Michael Jordan.

Now cities are being made by developers, not architects, or not urban planners. They’re made by developers. So one way is this but many people are interested in working for society also.
