Welcome to the new year everyone! I hope 2017 is your best year yet!
ITS: met on Friday the 13th of January (nope, no superstitions here!) for TED O’clock and watched Renny Gleeson’s talk about “404, The Story of a Page Not Found.” It was a short and succinct discussion that boiled down to this: no one wants to see the 404 error page, but if you do, there are things that companies, colleges, etc., can do to make the experience more enjoyable. 404 pages can be made to be much more interesting, informative, and fun to look at (several examples are shown in the talk). Essentially, the best can be made out of a bad situation so that no one is left feeling dissatisfied or unhappy about the interaction.
This was our shortest meeting yet, with the talk and following discussion completed by 10:10. We are nothing if not efficient!
Thanks to everyone who came! If you have a TED talk that you’d like to suggest we watch or better yet, one that you would like to facilitate, please contact Linda to get on the spring schedule!
ITS:Always fun, never boring
