Last night was UX Talk Tokyo #5.
We talked about failure.
One fascinating point came up from Gengo. They made a mistake with one launch which made it very difficult (but not impossible) for new translators to register on their site. Later, their analysis showed that the people who registered during that period turned out to be great translators. A beautiful consequence from what seemed like a failure.
We also did “Share & share a link”. These are the things people shared …
Gneo – To do App
Jelly – Question & Answer App
Codrops – Web tutorials & code snippets
Adam Magyar video – Pretty incredible video shot on home-made equipment
‘Her’ the movie – Movie. See the Wired article too
Ride the lightning – Thursday 23rd (next week)
One more I’ll throw in, about virtual learning to walk
If you would like to contact the person who shared any of these, please let me know.
The big news is that our community is now 100 members!
Just for your calendar, the next event will be on 20 November. More details later.
