    Designing For Hackability Designing For Hackability Presentation Transcript

    • Designing for Hackability
    • sr bna
    • What is scary?
    • Attention scarcity.
    • Web apps are the new screenplays.
    • The Internet is smarter than you are.
    • It’s ok if you’re not the Master of Your Domain.
    • Design the sandbox. Let them play.
    • via PeterMe
    • Co-create. Faster. More creative. Truer audience fit.
    • It’s a View Source world.
    • Mods signal intense user connection. Co-ownership. Health.
    • This will happen with or without you.
    • It already is.
    • scrAPIs
    • Users want to customize. View ads, or not. Shift time & place. Personal mash.
    • Internal team hacks for speed, creativity.
    • Other devs want to hack. Just because.
    • Not a Web site. A light-weight (like, really light) message delivery infrastructure.
    • 10x traffic from the API over the .com
    • Fan wikis. A good sign.
    • Some people are really, really into it.
    • Growth + diversity = new monetization options.
    • Initial site focused on destination search.
    • Current site promotes tools.
    • How can we make social networks more hackable? Portable? Efficient?
    • Social networking fatigue.
    • Don’t make me repeat myself. Profile information Friend networks. Preferences.
    • Could these sites work together?
    • We have the technology:
    • Small pieces. Loosely joined.
    • rel = “me”
    • One piece at a time.
    • So what tools do we have to work with?
    • Build on open platforms & standards.
    • Use microformats.
    • Set content free.
    • Think multi-modal. Widgetize.
    • Build, document and champion uses of your APIs.
    • Design hackable URLs.
    • Teach & model the behaviors you want.
    • Celebrate & nourish creative hacks.
