Inside Mobile Design and User Experience

Thoughts on mobile and social business applications, design, and user experience, by Chris Reckling.

Just heard about this new site, in time for the Lotus Development Corp. 25th Anniversary party. The Lotus Museum, "the world's first virtual museum for software". I love the "on loan from the so and so collection", for those pictures. I even found an old 1-2-3 Mac phone list and went down memory lane on that one - I was the support person assigned to 123Mac since I was the only one who had used one before at the time, I think.

As the press release states:
"The idea for the museum was conceived by Judi Lazerus, a former Lotus employee who had a considerable stockpile of Lotus memorabilia and wanted to honor the company because it was a great place to work. She was a software tester in Cambridge, Massachusetts for five years (1987-1992) and a consultant in the Dallas office for seven years (1994-2001). Donations to the museum are encouraged by anyone who has Lotus memorabilia. Making a donation entails uploading a picture of the item and providing information about it."

I think we can safely say that curator Judi Lazarus doesn't throw anything away! Of course, I do have a box or 2 of Improv and Jazz, a Magellan clock, and more than one yellow shirt somewhere in my office. Guess I'll have to make a donation. It looks like they need more to fill out the museum. I did notice that someone in Westford was trying to track down a yellow Notes 4 box...

btw: The Lotus Museum is not associated with IBM or Lotus, but it's kind of interesting.
