4th Politforelle: smartvote and smartmonitor

Yesterday evening the Amazee team joined the well populated Politforelle to listen to Julien's, Dave’s and Steffi’s presentation of the evolving politools projects. politools is an academically backed association aiming to increase political participation in Switzerland and beyond. Better known than their own name is their core product smartvote. Since 2003 the tool helps Swiss citizens lay back and easily find their candidates using an online questionnaire. In 2007 an amazing 1million users or about 15% of all Swiss citizens used smartvote to find the best matching national councils. Now that's about when Twitter launched or in other words a looong time ago - the team is busy overhauling their baby to Web 2.0 standards. Additionally we're likely to see the rollout of smartvote's little brother smartmonitor. It's supposed to be launched in the course of the 2011 national council elections and will provide transparency on the voting profile of political candidates, network analyses and more. Thanks to Feinheit for hosting, thanks to Politnetz for moderating!

UX Chuchi with kooaba

Yesterday kooaba hosted the 11th UX Chuchi and put their iPhone App "Paperboy" up for discussion. kooaba is a leading company when it comes to image recognition systems, but this time it wasn't about testing their software regarding this core functionality. Instead, we tried to focus on the usability of their product (and just took the image recognition and matching as granted).

Wuala in the UX Chuchi

Yesterday was Wuala's turn to get its usability chuckholes uncovered in the UX Chuchi. From the folder color, to sharing principles, to finding the right positioning between a social sharing platform and an online backup platform - we discussed it all; and while everybody agreed that less functionalities would do, nobody really wanted to commit to eliminating his favourite parts of Wuala! Next to suffer the heat of the UX catharsis: Koaaba. RSVP just over here

The event featured 300 participants and 3 main presentations: Nils Müller, CEO TrendONE, gave an inspiring talk on how our life could look in 2021: hyperwired, hypercompetitive and badly addicted to the web.
