  • phinze is making progress as well. beckett owes phinze a long IRC chat session this week.
  • Google recommends ending SoC on August 11 to have a week to finalize.

Summer of Usability

Gallery Competition

  • Some thoughts:
    • Competitions are good to get people involved
    • Focus on the gallery usage not the content.
    • Criteria: visual impact, good designm usability, novel features, unusual customization
    • Basis of the competition is predicated on the assumption that there are people who have done more with gallery than just download and stick with a straight install - tuned the templates, adjusted the css, custom themes
    • More than a new theme contest, more of a showcase
  • Overall, +1 for the contest...
