Beyond 800 Words: Prototyping New Story Formats for News
"News on the internet is largely served up as 500 to 800-word articles - a legacy of newspapers. Although the digital article has been enhanced and improved with new technologies, it still works on the assumption that 'one size fits all'. BBC R&D is developing new story formats for news that are more effective than conventional video or article formats. I have written elsewhere about the current landscape of digital news. We think there might be better things."

How voicebots lighten our cognitive load
"We recently partnered with Mindshare Futures and J. Walter Thompson Innovation Group for their Speak Easy research project to answer that very question. Our portion of the study involved observing 102 smartphone users as they carried out a selection of tasks using Amazon’s Alexa, Google Assistant, text-based search, and questions directed to a real person. While the users performed these tasks, we monitored their neurological responses to the experience using steady state topography."

"From Blockmetry’s direct measurements, 0.2% of pageviews from worldwide traffic across all devices in the fourth quarter 2016 had javascript disabled. Although apparently tiny, the aggregate figure hides a lot of interesting variation and regional patterns, with traffic from some countries having much higher JavaScript disabled rates."

Designing digital services that are accountable, understood, and trusted
"I’m hoping to convince you that designing digital services that are understandable, accountable and trusted is now a commercial as well as a moral imperative, and that building an open society in the digital age is about more than open code.

And that, whether you like it or not, if you work in software or design in 2016 you also work in politics."

pix2code: Generating Code from a Graphical User Interface Screenshot
"Transforming a graphical user interface screenshot created by a designer into computer code is a typical task conducted by a developer in order to build customized software, websites, and mobile applications. In this paper, we show that deep learning methods can be leveraged to train a model end-to-end to automatically generate code from a single input image with over 77% of accuracy for three different platforms (i.e. iOS, Android and web-based technologies)."

Links from a talk
"In two weeks time, I’ll be in Seattle for An Event Apart. I’ll be giving a brand new talk. The title is The Way Of The Web (although perhaps a more accurate title would be The Layers Of The Web). Here’s the description: Do you ever get overwhelmed by the ever-changing nature of web design and development? Exhausting, isn’t it? How are you supposed to know which technologies and tools you should invest your time in? Will they stick around or will you just have to relearn everything in another few months? Join Jeremy as he takes a tour of the past, present, and future of working on the web. From the building blocks of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript through to frameworks and libraries right up to the latest and greatest Progressive Web Apps, this talk will examine our collective assumptions with a critical eye. By learning from the past, we can make sensible design decisions today to build the web of tomorrow."

"A good researcher can help a team understand what opportunities are available to pursue. They will help you to see a problem in a different way – to frame the problem from the users point of view.

Taking A Look At The State Of Progressive Images And User Perception
"There is no simple way to synthesize a user’s perception of an image loading over time. We are driven by the gut feeling that showing earlier is better, even if it’s not the final content, though some users will disagree.

As developers, we need to measure performance. It’s the only way we can set targets to improve it, and know when we don’t meet a performance budget."

Identifying Customer Top Tasks
When we got citizens of Liverpool to vote on what they wanted from Liverpool City Council, we found top tasks such as libraries, leisure facilities, roads, waste collection. When we analyzed the relationship between publishing activities for the council on its website and citizens’ top tasks, we found an inverse relationship. The more important the task was to the citizen, the less was being published on it, the less important it was to the citizen, the more that was being published on it.

The Real Name Fallacy
"People often say that online behavior would improve if every comment system forced people to use their real names. It sounds like it should be true – surely nobody would say mean things if they faced consequences for their actions?

Yet the balance of experimental evidence over the past thirty years suggests that this is not the case. Not only would removing anonymity fail to consistently improve online community behavior – forcing real names in online communities could also increase discrimination and worsen harassment."

Researching webchat wasn’t easy. We weren’t just testing an interface, we were testing human interactions too."

Creating a Weekly Research Cadence
"Working on a product team, it’s easy to get hyper-focused on building features and lose sight of your users and their daily challenges. User research can be time-consuming to set up, so it often becomes ad-hoc and irregular, only performed in response to a particular question or concern. But without frequent touch points and opportunities for discovery, your product will stagnate and become less and less relevant. Setting up an efficient cadence of weekly research conversations will re-focus your team on user problems and provide a steady stream of insights for product development."
