Request for Feature: Keynote & Powerpoint

David Weinberger

How about if there were a magical shape we could draw on top of a slide that would magnify what’s under it? So, if you were showing a slide of a screen capture, you could invoke these shapes to come and go, enlarging the elements to which you want to call attention. kthxbye.*. Yes, not an entirely appropriate use of the term, but I find it an amusing youthicism.

Request for feature: Google calendar

David Weinberger

I’d like to be able to jump to a date in Google Calendar by typing in a date, because paging through 15 months takes precious seconds that could otherwise be spent in scratching myself. I was hoping that typing a date into the search field would work, but it doesn’t. In fact, searching for something like “5/8/08″ gives results that seem random but undoubtedly have an inner but unhelpful logic.

New Feature in Webinar Tool

Tony Karrer

Maybe I've not been paying attention, but in the webinar that I just finished, the tool GoToMeeting had a neat feature that showed the percentages of people who were paying attention (had the meeting visual in the foreground) vs. those who were not paying attention.

The number 1 Twitter mistake many people make

Jane Hart

I don’t really like talking about “mistakes” when it comes to using different tools, as we all have our own ways of using them, but in this case there is one particular Twitter feature which I can see is ending up in a lot of wasted tweets! That feature is, that if you start a tweet with […].

Does Apple Think Multitasking Is A Bug Not A Feature? And Other Questions.

Steven Berlin Johnson

I wrote a little essay for Time.com on the iPad launch (and the reactions to it.) Here's the opening riff: If you time-traveled back to 1995, and asked the leading futurists of that time where our machines were soon to take us, you might well have heard just as much rhapsodizing about document-centric interfaces as that about hypertext and the World Wide Web.

connected curiosity

Harold Jarche

Some people can describe many aspects of their local vicinity while others don’t know anything about why certain features exist. Some people seem to be naturally curious. Others work at it, while some just lack interest in learning. You can notice this when traveling.

Un-Sucking the Touchpoint

Adaptive Path

Death to Features. I’ve been working with, and designing for, “features and functionality” going on 15 years. A while back I was speaking at a conference and I described the role the touchpoint played in helping make sense of a cross-channel service.

Salesforce’s Marc Benioff continued his now-epic stream of social business thought leadership at this week’s Dreamforce 2011 in San Francisco.

LinkedIn Skills – Useful or Useless?

The cynic in me believes this feature is simply an attempt by those at LinkedIn to accomplish their stated goal of building (and I would suggest selling) the world’s first economic graph. I don’t think the skills feature in LinkedIn is critical for success in your career.
