In the movie Groundhog Day, Bill Murray repeats the same day over and over, until he finds the key to change his thinking and behaviors. We all live in a form of Groundhog Day, with recurring themes throughout our lives. Maybe it’s the series of bosses who demands more from you than is fair, even as they let others around you slide. Or perhaps it’s the parade of clients who don’t pay you what you’re worth, even as they demand more than agreed. It could be the problem neighbors or club members or soccer moms who seem to always slack off and leave you to clean up the mess. Even when we move on to the new job, new client, new neighborhood… the themes follow us. That’s because we create these themes with our mindware, just like Bill created his Groundhog Day. We’re so done with that boss, client or group. We focus on how bad it is as we fret and moan, look for ways to es... (more)

Time, Speed and Space - Mobile vs. Static Apps

Most of today’s technology was designed and developed for static, stationary environments.  Even today, in a mobile world, mobile apps are most often developed based on assumed static endpoints.  Why is that a problem?  We are rarely static people. Let’s consider two people in a vehicle.  The driver, assuming they use their smartphone only when safely parked, searches for places, locations and directions based on a static starting point.  However, if the person searching for places, locations and directions is a passenger in a moving car, a different set of information is appropriate.  One based on movement, speed, direction, intersections, changing distances, etc.  How should those variables change the way mobile apps are designed? If you want to meet up with friends or family members who are travelling, in transit, or commuting, today’s mobile apps require you to se... (more)
