Highlights of week 51/2009

  • 7 Controversial Usability Predictions for 2010 (by W Craig Tomlin) is in my eyes not as controversial as stated and surely a good read for everyone working in this field.
  • Seth Godin was kind enough to share his book What Matters Now as a free download. You'll find more than seventy big thinkers, each sharing an idea for you to think about. Good Xmas read, thanks!
  • LinkedIn announced its faceted search feature which is based on eight facets: company, past company, location, relationship, location, industry, school and profile languages. It really comes in handy when searching for people by location or friendship degree, something that Facebook is badly lacking still.
  • URL shortening is big not only since Twitter hit the 140 character message limit. This week Facebook and Google announced their very own services, goo.gl and fb.me with bit.ly announcing its plans for Bit.ly Pro, a service that lets publishers create their own custom short URLs that use the Bit.ly platform.
  • Menu Mind Games, really funny and quick read about the marketing tricks built into menus, for example, how something as simple as typography can drive you toward or away from that $39 steak.
