#discussThe Biggest Mistakes in App User Onboarding

  • Experiencing on my own, I can note the importance of user onboarding strategy for the app, which experience should be user-focused first.
  • Focusing onboarding efforts on showcasing product features fail to demonstrate how the product will solve the user's problem.
  • While the connection between how the features will solve a problem may be clear to the company, it's not always so apparent for the user.
  • Just because the user has begun using the product or service doesn’t mean they know everything about it.
  • Providing too many details at one time won’t help users to memorize everything about all the app features.
  • It is better if you provide details step by step to walk your user through the familiarization process.
  • What is a bad app user onboarding experience for You?
  • Do You know the examples of good and bad user onboarding experience?

  • The clinic has been strategically placed in a neighborhood that is shown to have a high need for quality medical care.
  • To serve the community's needs, the clinic was constructed with significant input from community members.

Just say it: Yes, I'm menstruating

  • Fortunately, there are ways we can change that -- starting with talking openly about periods to help normalize the conversation and break the stigma.
  • This is part of what I refer to as the "period paradox:" menstrual pain isn't taken seriously enough as a medical condition to warrant research, while at the same time, a number of people point to the combination of pain and hormones associated with periods to characterize women as irrational or "too emotional." This stigma helps drive the perception -- explicit in some instances and insidiously implicit in others --that women shouldn't be trusted with important tasks, like running the country or leading a corporation.
  • There's no need for gratuitous or overly graphic period talk just to make people uncomfortable, but if you find that you're self-censoring when it comes to bringing up your period, try dropping it into normal conversation, the way that you'd tell someone that you have allergies or a cold.

Swarm gets green light from FCC for its 150-satellite constellation

  • Swarm Technologies aims to connect smart devices around the world with a low-bandwidth but ever-present network provided by satellites — and it just got approval from the FCC to do so.
  • Longtime satellite communications provider ORBCOMM had objected that Swarm would be taking over some parts of the spectrum it has been assigned — but the FCC found that wasn’t actually the case and in fact the company was in a way making a sort of power play that would have extended its control over those frequencies.
  • But documents filed by Swarm addressing these questions seem to have satisfied the FCC completely — “We find that Swarm has taken the appropriate steps to address SpaceX’s concerns,” and it granted the application with the condition that the company abide by any upcoming orbital debris rules.

DNS 101: An Introduction to Domain Name Servers

  • Originally, the Domain Name System (DNS) was created to support the growth of communications by email, and the first email addresses only consisted of <user>@<host>.
  • In this query, we can see that it starts in the root DNS servers, who walk to the Top-Level Domains (TLDs) until the domain name registration requested is found and returns the hosts that are identified with it.
  • Domain name record information is contained in a zone file, which can be configured as read/write or read-only.
  • Slaves Zones are read-only copies of the Master Zone, transmitted from the DNS Master, and are synchronized every certain time to preserve the integrity of the information from the domain name records.
  • When a variable IP address is assigned to a device, a variant of the DNS server is required to assign a domain hostname.

Ford is challenging Tesla by trying to calm one of the biggest fears people have about electric vehicles

  • Ford announced on Thursday it is giving electric-vehicle customers two years of free access to over 12,000 charging stations in North America with over 35,000 plugs.
  • The FordPass Charging Network will consist of stations from multiple charging providers, including Greenlots and Electrify America, allowing Ford customers to find stations and pay to charge up their vehicles through their infotainment screens, rather than having to set up separate accounts with each charging provider.
  • The FordPass Charging Network will also include DC fast-charging stations from Electrify America that will allow for a vehicle to charge from 10% to 80% in 45 minutes.
  • Through the FordPass Charging Network, Ford's electric-vehicle customers will for two years have free access to more charging stations than are included in Tesla's Supercharger network (which has 1,636 stations and 14,497 plugs in North America).

Data Science and Healthcare

  • I recently went to a Data & Healthcare meetup to see how a renowned cancer research institute, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK), applies and uses Data Science.
  • It was very inspiring to hear that MSK has “a lot of data” and they’re exploring how Data Science can be used to be beneficial and impactful to provide the best patient centered experience.
  • Another speaker from MSK stated that some providers don’t like to click on checkboxes to document their notes and that they prefer to write it out in prose.
  • While I don’t believe that quote was necessarily addressed towards Data Science, it is inspiring and interesting to see how a company such as MSK promotes and shares their interest and excitement in the field of Data Science and analytics to ultimately provide the best patient-centered care.
