  15. 10 mins

  16. Me, in my own shoes.

  17. Fixed access schedule.

  18. KEEP CALM AND TAKE NOTES

  19. WHAT WENT WRONG.

  20. Inbox Zero The web has links Switching devices Background tasks

  21. Some chores take time Text input is slow Starting late

    wont help Time Up!
  22. WHAT ELSE MIGHT GO WRONG.

  23. Transport and Pickup Coordination Lack of acknowledgement We forget things

  24. DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS.

  25. Distractions = Entertainment + Discovery Elimination as solution not realistic

    Solve problem caused by distractions Minimize effect of distractions
  26. Many tasks have predictable results Monitoring these tasks not essential

    Automate tasks
  27. Tasks may not always be automated Ensure tasks of priority

    get attention Make background tasks transparent Visible feedback about progress
  28. Text input takes time Impromptu competes with priority tasks Memory

    and recall not dependable Allow planning in advance
  29. Schedule conflicts with availability Time is not enough Affects or

    useful for the future Offline access
  30. Suggest obvious related tasks Data detectors to sense kind of

    task Dictionary for Input Context
  31. Coherent workflow for multiple devices Sync devices Multi-device awareness

  32. Minimize hidden UI elements/gestures Clarify difference in success and failure

    Emergency exits for user error Existing applications good at what they do Augment but do not repeat Transparency of Interface
  33. THE APPLICATION.
