DesignerDays in Paris. Some sort of yearly event where designers meet and talk, from what I heard. A friend told me to come this afternoon to listen to a panel about “Connected devices and design”.
Chris Palmieri started the panel and told the crowd about hi.co - and as I do when people talk about their web projects, I sign up at the same time. And since Chris told hi.co is to store & share moments, impressions, quick bits, and come back later, I gave it a try. And I give it a try, extending my moment and thinking about the “embed” feeling that hi.co tries to give me.
First my quick moment; then Shu (a user) thanked me 5 minutes afterwards. Then Christine, 1/2 hour later, asks me to expand the moment.
Then I walk around the interface, and discover the Welcome committee - such a wonderful idea, where anyone can become a welcoming party - giving an user the immediate feeling of being part of the community.
Very nice experience - Chris has finished, other designers keep talking on the panel, I keep looking around hi.co, and I’ve already jumped the hurdle of feeling myself a member.
For that, bravo, Hi team !
I lost him; but I found myself.
