Let’s do some ethography - My desk currently has the following objects on it:
An iMac with a Sonic Screwdriver fastened to the top (River Song’s,) and a fortune cookie message that says “You know just what to do” taped to the front. Pennywise is on Spotify. Bluetooth stereo headphones. Twitter app is open on a second monitor.
There’s an Iron Man bobblehead, a ten-pack of Staedtler fineliners, a coke-zero, a red bull, a yellow legal pad half-full of meeting notes, and four half-used stacks of post-its.
A sixteen button MMO gaming mouse has been reappropriated with shortcuts for Omnigraffle. There are three books on my desk: “Thoughts on Interaction Design” by Kolko, “Observing the User Experience” by Kuniavsky, and “Research Methods in Human-Computer Interaction” by Lazar et al.
What do we know about the subject?
Posted for longevity. This shit is amazing. Depeche Mode ages like a fine wine.
Google’s new “Google Drive” uses some interesting language regarding what they may do with files you store in their space:
“When you upload or otherwise submit content to our Services, you give Google (and those we work with) a worldwide license to use, host, store, reproduce, modify, create derivative works (such as those resulting from translations, adaptations or other changes we make so that your content works better with our Services), communicate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute such content.”
Those of us who store client work on cloud drives may want to think twice about utilizing this tool. It could violate non-disclosure agreements by exposing sensitive documents to potential competitors who work with Google.
Just something to keep in mind. Skim the TOS when the property of others is at stake!
(Big thanks to Dave Jones for bringing this to my attention.)
