Digital is political

Governments govern. Oppositions oppose – or, more positively, present an alternative set of policies based on an alternative political perspective. Political initiatives taken by one government will be looked at critically by its potential successors, for the obvious reason that the decisions embodied in those initiatives will have been taken by people with different political goals, different political instincts and in a different political context.That doesn’t, of course, mean that every…See More

The power of information, tube strike second edition

As an update to yesterday’s post showing how much better TfL information can be presented by applying a little bit of information design, here is an even better example – it’s a cleaner map, with more information and it’s by far the clearest guide to what will be happening that I have seen.Again though, this does not come from TfL.

The power of information, tube strike edition

If you don’t know what’s going on in a system, it’s very hard to know how to respond to it. Those who have information are powerful, those who share information empower others.Some of that is about big stuff, but some of it is about very small things. So in the next couple of days, there is likely to be a strike of London Underground workers, which will result in substantial disruption to the network. The question is how much and where.Transport for London know…See More

Work Place

The question of how we work in a digital world is occupying me quite a lot at the moment. Prompted in part by my involvement with the project to deliver technology good enough for work, I wrote a post here a few weeks back on whether offices are redundant, with a…See More

Mark Hammer commented on Stefan Czerniawski's blog post 'RTFM'
"I like the gov.uk site.  Clean, clean, clean.  No fancy graphics, so 56kbd modem users aren't penalized, and everything of relevance is plainly evident.  All potentially technical terms translated or matched up with common-sense…"

"Thanks again for more fascinating observations. On single centralised websites, I am tempted to adapt Clay Shirky's dictum and say that the fact that perhaps it shouldn't work in theory doesn't necessarily stop it working in practice.…"

"Thanks, Stefan.  Honoured to be cross-linked.  A couple of tangential observations: 1) The goals of designers vs users:  My question to my class about "What does the beginner want/need to know right now?"  applies to…"
