I will be available on IRC to answer questions related to the Multimedia usability project this Thursday, February 4, 2010 @ 1700 UTC. Please join us in #wikimedia-office on Freenode
Where our hero gets a new job and moves to the other side of the world.
As part of the Multimedia Usability project, in collaboration with illustrator Michael Bartalos, I led a project to design a licensing tutorial with the Wikimedia Commons community, and integrate it into the new UploadWizard on Wikimedia Commons.
Do you regularly use media sharing platforms like Flickr, Youtube, Fotopedia, Picasa web or Panoramio? Then you can tell us what you love (or hate) about their interface and features, to help us improve Wikimedia Commons.
I follow a set of RSS feeds related to user experience and interaction design. Until now, I have been reading them for my own benefit; but with my new job, it makes sense to pick a few interesting pieces of information for Wikimedians who want to better understand the work of the Wikimedia usability team(s).
