Shortest path.

Hmmm? you ask. What’s the man mumbling about this time. Well, shortest path is both a theoretical problem class in computer science, but it’s also a good model to use in measuring mobile phone usability.

Imagine you’ve just taken a wonderful picture of a evening, the sky just before sunset. Your 5 megapixel camera takes accurate images. Why did you take the photo? Well, you can use it as a background image in the phone. You can also download (or, let’s just say send) it to your computer back home. Or you can send it to a social network, photo gallery, or as an email attachment.

The crucial question is:

how, when, does it work? Does it reach the audience? Are you happy?

Simple as that.

How do you do it?

Me: a code enthusiasta, technology optimist, but also a realist. In my blog something like 80% of the articles are technology related - mostly in English and Finnish. I like to envision and ponder about things, how life could be, what we are doing wrong today, and so on. "Invented" a facebook -like system in 2000, as a short product pamphlet. Haven't yet realized the 20+ ideas that might have become big things. Maybe learning this skill one of these days!
