Thanks so much for the great responses! After I sent out my question I found out that my IT group was actually getting ready to deploy the Jotspot Wiki (http://www.jot.com/) with the Blogapp. So I'm going to use this for now and see how things go. So far it seem pretty good, I've used it to record some meeting notes and whiteboard captures that my remote teammates have found useful. Since the rest of my company is using this as well linking to other docs using Wiki words has also been fairly easy.
Quote from Dave:
But when I hear someone try to say that "intuitive", "efficient",
"effective" should have different more generic meanings in our space, it
really upsets me.
Intuition is about pre-learning, so it can't be equated to "learnable". If I
use my "intuition" to do something it means that it didn't require anything
to learn. Efficiency, is efficiency ... Effectiveness:effort derived.
Effective is about end result.
Liz: I really don't understand your reaction, Dave.
Thanks to everyone who replied to my posting:
Communicating Permission levels in the interface.
Heres the question I posted:
My team is working on a web-based application that will be used by several different people, in permission-based roles, to manage a financial services account. There will be the owner that can do everything, the proxy that can do nearly everything, and a read-only role.
Thank you for the wonderful responses and input to my
question on buying a Tablet PC (see immediate, below).
I received a lot of e-mails back-channel as well on
the list; I've tried to preserve the thread, below (to
varying degrees of success). Apologies for anything
Worth noting a lot of discussion about form factors,
ergonomics, usability, software pros/cons, etc. vs.
favorite brand, etc. Per the latter, seems the Toshiba
M100(x) line comes out on top, as well as Alias
software . . .
