The User at the Center
March 29, 2006 1 Comment
It’s all about the user. I addressed this earlier in “What do you call the uber personalized site for information snacking?” and I’m starting to see more and more in the ‘sphere about what is getting to be a monumental shift.
I’m still thinking about this and am looking for partners interested in working on it with me.
The user wants to snack on their data; whenever, wherever they are. This could be email on the PC or SmartPhone, video on the phone while on a plane or on the big screen while at home, a Personal Control Panel that aggregates all the user’s desired content with access from anywhere (think MyMSN or My Yahoo).
This PCP could include digital content that’s best presented in a 10-foot view, accessible with Windows Media Center and your wide-screen TV. Or it could include links to your music, downloadable to your PC or phone from your place on the web.
It’s bigger than a portal; it’s our user’s life. The user at the center is the main tenet of Information Snacking.
What do you think?
