Thoughts on Patterns and Writing on Medium

Mark Oehlert

So I wrote a post about patterns , something I actually think is very important. Its uncluttered design really brings you back to the writing. Third reaction - I need to understand better how to link Medium to Twitter or LinkedIn - maybe I can''t and maybe that''s part of the design - I just need to investigate that. . Now I have to decide if I''ll use it more.that would be a pattern. I''m not breaking up with Typepad but I did want to try out Medium.

All Social is Learning | Organizational Knowledge Design

Shaming, safety, & misconceptions

Clark Quinn

Another twitter debate , another blog post. Instead it was about whether the designers would feel proscribed from making real errors because of their expectation of learner’s emotions. Our errors don’t tend to be random (there is some randomness), but instead are patterned. Instead, as I’ve said , learning should be designed action and guided reflection. So our design should prevent shaming, but by making it safe to fail, not preventing failure.

It echoes and builds on some thoughts I’ve been having recently about mobile user experience and interaction design. It’s exciting stuff, but the question remains for me… How do we begin to design for that future? Designers are well armed with a vast set of tools and processes that support this approach - use cases, task flows, task analysis - just to name a few. A great example is Twitter.

A survey of powerful visualization techniques, from the obvious to the obscure

George Siemens

Twitter, Facebook, and blogs increase the volume of conversations, but when you tap into a few active networks, the social system begins to serve as a sensemaking agent. From the article: The goal of visualization is to aid our understanding of data by leveraging the human visual system’s highly tuned ability to see patterns, spot trends, and identify outliers. It’s tough to stay current in any field or on any topic these days – things just move too fast.

Thoughts on Steve Jobs, The Book

Steven Berlin Johnson

The second thing that occurred to me is that, while Jobs historically had a reputation for being a nightmare to work with, in fact one of the defining patterns of his career was his capacity for deep and generative partnerships with one or two other (often very different) people. As my friend Tom Coates remarked on Twitter, there are so many different kinds of crying; it would have been interesting to have a bit more color on exactly what kind of tears were shed.
