interactive language of attention
attention:tribes pay attention
tribal platform:Y! developer network
they’ve improved so much due the the creation of internal tribes, hack days, mash days
design tribe:new model
attention:engaging (wow but must be relevant)
patterns:immediacy, directness (how do you let the user know it’s inline editing)
a nice run down of how these new patterns of interaction as we move to AJAX are creating a need to educate users on how and when a pattern makes sense, or is it the developers that need to learn from the users I guess?
I’ve been arguing this is a current project, mixed interaction = confusing UI, life was easier when there was only one interaction – click!
Y! desing pattern Library – not much there now but they really want to create a consistent vocabulary
Y! UI library released too
