I joined the list several days ago and I have been enjoying reading the
discussions a lot. I wanted to submit a thread of my own.
With Web2.0, our personal data has been quickly moving from our HDs and
Desktops to the apps on the web and there are a lot of different approaches
to the Webtop/WebOS/Web Desktop experience.
I wanted to find out more about how the ID community perceives/evaluates the
developments in the landspace:
(startpages: netvibes, pageflakes, social networks: ning, facebook
API/platform, chat: meebo, Google OS, Yahoo Pipes, webOS: eyeOS, goowy,
youos), what aspects of each of these do you find
And how do you see the next step of interaction design with web-hosted
A little bit about myself: I run a virtual business incubator called
OutCubator helping seed-funded startups/executives build their initial
prototypes via outcubated resources in Kiev and Istanbul. Also, I run
Zurna.com - a popular Turkish social networking website and I have built
Closo.com in the past (a flexible ecommerce platform with not the best
marketing message). I graduated from Stanford with a degree in Science
Technology Society:Technology Management with a concentration in HCI in
2002. I have an interest in foreign markets/languages/cultures and I also
speak 7 languages.
