Building Blocks For People Focused Mobile Communication*
App-centric communication interfaces distract us - a people-focused mobile communication experience could both solve that problem and provide numerous other advantages.
This talk will discuss building blocks: from user experience, to markup, styling, and script that can be assembled to create a people-focused mobile communication experience using your own website.
A few months ago I wrote about my frustrations with distracting app-centric communication interfaces, and how a people-focused mobile communication experience could not only solve that problem, but provide numerous other advantages as well.
I have figured out and am figuring out building blocks for creating a people-focused mobile communication experience using a personal website:
- Mockups for what it would look like
- URLs for each communication service/app
- Markup for the collections of links and labels
- CSS for presenting it like the mockups
- Logic for presence, platform detection, and user context
This talk will go over these one by one, providing technical details sufficient to use them to design and construct a people-focused mobile communication experience on your own personal website.
