adding social design patterns to a solution enhances the overall value of both your social network and
every business solution that makes use of social design patterns.

Today I needed to contact a colleague and was using SMS text to make the contact. In doing so, I was immediately struck by my behavior. Normally I would use Sametime to interact with my friend, but, due to being mobile (walking down the hall) I was using text instead. What I noticed in my own approach was this. When I "cold call" someone over Sametime, I always use what I'll call the "Accepted Social Interrupt Protocol" ASIP - I start with a simple "Hi", wait for a response, engage in a b [read] Keywords: sametime synch.rono.us exchange exchange mobile

Intuition is a smokescreen
Wed, Aug 1st 2012 4:49p   Joseph Russo
Often times in design you will here people say something is intuitive or, maybe more often, something is not intuitive. And frankly, I've often found this is merely a smokescreen, to cast something they don't like and have solid argument to reason why they don't believe in the design. This happens because for some reason, people have learned that saying that something is "not intuitive" is somehow really important to design. And I want to be clear, we're talking about software here. An [read] Keywords: synch.rono.us interface wiki

Pocket Veto – the unspoken tenet of Social Software
Fri, Jun 29th 2012 11:30a   Joseph Russo
Ok, just to be a pain, I'm starting with civics lesson. In the United States, there is a process by which “bills” become law. The House of Representatives vote and if the majority agrees, the bill passes to the Senate. They vote and if majority agrees it goes to the President. He can sign the bill, making it a law, or he can veto it, and it goes back to congress for rehashing...or if it's near the end of the term, he can simply “pocket veto” it. This allows him to safely do [read] Keywords: synch.rono.us network networking social software
