whois AUser ?
I while back I realised that we spend an awful lot of time talking about what users want and I dont think I have ever sat in a development or programming meeting in which a user actually sat and contributed. There are many good reasons not to involve Users at all levels of delivery and design but there should still be an opportunity to actually hear back from users in an constructive and informative way; and as a result I give to you
I started this a while back and its a project that will take some time to find its feet and to get some momentum. The premise is to invite my own users, clients and friends who are in some way using open source software on a daily basis. It is broadcast on Ustream since this gives me the opportunity to go out live and to have a chat room and a live conversation with any User who wants to drop in and watch.
Primarily these conversations are aimed at the Ubuntu and Open Source community with the view to hearing more about what Users expect, desire and want from their technology. I do hope they will prove useful and todays subject Mark Harrison of MyThinge.com is one person Ive been looking forward to interviewing for a while now.
The show goes out live at 10.30 am this morning
Please take time to listen to the users and as more appear I will keep you updated.
Thanks for Reading.
