Surreal World Seattle

Surreal World Seattle | Transmedia Seattle | Scoop.it

 Meet Webby: http://youtu.be/2XfvzdQOnmY

 

Curious about transmedia storytelling, joining the next Transmedia Seattle MeetUp!, why we love TransmediaSF, what it was like to be a part of the world premiere of Transmedia Jam?

Watch a project evolve in front of your eyes as intrepid members of Transmedia Seattle continue to iterate and fail forward on a project launched during Transmedia Jam 2012.  

This transmedia project originated with the idea of how best to tell the unlikely love story of a webcam named Webby, recently retired after 15 years of objectively recording endless interviews with contestants on a  'Real Life' - like TV reality show called Sureal World Seattle.  Now that she's been retired- she's has love or attitude to share.  Need some love, got some advice,  or attitude. I think you'll see Webby needs a little help from her friends. Come and get/give it! Robert Pratten weighed in.  How 'bout you? What are we doing wrong- and right? today. 

 

Our current aim is to make Surreal World Seattle a destination for all interested in how to Just Do It! with transmedia, or honest assessment from a spunky webcam in love...

 

I think you're gonna love Webby OR Mike...

UX 101: What Is User Experience? [infographic]

UX 101: What Is User Experience? [infographic] | Transmedia Seattle | Scoop.it

When it comes to design, user experience is one of the key things.

 

According to this infographic, 68% of users leave because of poorly designed websites and 62% of customers base future purchases on past experiences. These stats alone are clear enough that UX (User Experience) isn’t something that can be taken lightly. The life and blood of your business might very well depend on this factor alone.

 

Have a look at this infographic to learn more about what User Experience is all about.

Ennio Martignago's curator insight, August 2, 2013 4:42 AM

Chissà quanti IT manager considerano che l'impatto delle piattaforme in azienda dipende dal fatto che il "68% degli utenti abbandona a causa della scarsa qualità nel design della UI mentre il 62% di essi basa le proprie scelte sulle esperienze passate"? Di certo una valutazione di questo genere influisce sulla fiducia dei clienti interni verso i propri IT manager. Non siamo più negli anni '80 o '90 quando bastava buttare lì qualche terminologia tecnica per zittire tutti. Oggi vi è una conoscenza basata sul confronto di altre proposte, su quelle adottate a casa propria e su pacchetti tutto compreso testabili facilmente dall'utilizzatore finale.

Terry Patterson's curator insight, June 16, 2013 2:04 PM

I find journey maps a great exercise, especially when the experience is poorly understood at first and user research has been done to understand it. The problem I see with them (from practice) is that while it is easy to illustrate a general user journey, it is difficult to account for every user mental model and contextual behavior; therefore, it is important to understand that journey maps illustrate generalities. In my opinion, complex user journeys better be backed up by good user research.
