Getting this blog rolling here in early 2012 and connecting to the blogosphere is a plunge into the global streams of creative people and communities in my various fields of interest. It requires adapting my own lifestyle and time management to align with that: my previous blogs were driven by ulterior motives, to generate new sales leads, to improve search engine traffic, and to promote and positive particular companies and brands. This one here is different – it’s about the art of participating in the worldwide community, engaging good ideas and creative endeavors, learning, sharing, and simply “putting it all out there to see where it goes.” It’s a bit of leaping without a net – but some forms of Providence are only revealed by leaping, there’s no other way! The precipice is exhilarating.
We’ve developed an advanced approach to assessing interactive systems, especially on the web, in this new landscape of devices, apps, users, and learners. This process uncovers hidden impediments to user and business success. This method has produced significant ROI and bottom line results for clients that have employed it so far. To deliver on the promise of human, personal, and spiritual development, connection, outreach, community, and learning through interactive systems, the user experience must deliver. The art and science of this realm is central to all these projects, and likely all future projects.
