So we decided to dedicate a website to it. As from today, www.knowledgebrowser.net will be the home of the Tam Tam Knowledge Browser.
I am proud to announce that today the first version (1.00) of the Knowledge Browser for SharePoint has been released to one of Tam Tam’s clients. The development team (Mart, Raymond, Robin, Stef and Wouter) has put much time, hard work and pondering in it to complete this first implementation in time. Cheers guys!
The Knowledge Browser is a customized knowledge base for SharePoint Portal Server 2003 that accommodates high-level navigating through a large collection of information by means of metadata. Verder lezen
Earlier I posted the first previews of the new Office interface, provided by Jensen Harris.
Yesterday, Harris reveiled the new UI visuals for Office 2007. As you will see, the ‘ribbons’ are further developed. It looks very promising. Verder lezen
The comparison illustrates perfectly why I haven’t used Yahoo! since the year 2000. The directory concept for a web portal haven’t ever worked for me, but before 2000 I did use Yahoo! occasionally (as back-up for Altavista). Verder lezen
“Unless you have never done anything else than analyse, structure and group large volumes of content only to hand-off that work to others, you have probably been acting as an interaction designer, information designer, computer scientist, business analyst, or usability engineer before. … you are in fact a user experience professional”.
CMupdate implies (article in Dutch) that content management systems will get faster and more intuitive by adopting Ajax technology.
I disagree with this assumption. Yes, Ajax is great for enriching the user experience, if used right. But like any other technology, Ajax is not a ‘silver bullet’. Lots of CMS interfaces can be significantly improved without using Ajax. And lots of new Ajax based applications will prove to be unusable. As goes for Flash, ActiveX and other technologies.

These days, I’m surrounded by ‘search’.
Last week, Judith, Annelies and I attended another IA Cocktail Hour in Amsterdam, which was adorned by two presentations on ‘search’. The first presentation was about Elsevier’s Scopus, an extensive search interface for academic research. The topic was rather similar to Eefke Smit’s presentation on the SIGCHI.nl conference. Next was MediaLab, who presented their AquaBrowser, a search interface enriched by a visual map of associated words. What rested was a fine discussion and a nice dinner. Verder lezen
According to the creators “Pandora is a music discovery service designed to help you find and enjoy music that you’ll love”. Basically, it is a personal (streaming) music station with which you can interact. Verder lezen
In a news release, Chris Mairs of BCS warns that “continuing failure to adapt both current and future IT systems to a group representing over 15 per cent of the population (UK statistic), will critically impact on all of us.”
Mairs points out that “the aging population means a significant proportion of us will eventually be classified as disabled, particularly with some degree of visual impairment. Added to which, this sector of society also represents an annual spend of £50 billion (UK statistic), a figure likely to grow annually by over ten per cent.” Verder lezen
For the fifth time, Trendbox has held the yearly Dutch ‘Big Marketing Survey’, in which over three hundred marketeers took part. The survey was held over a half year ago, but I happened to come across it just now.
In this post I’d like to share some of the outcomes regarding marketing through Internet. Verder lezen
