responsive discovery

note: cmi d8 init presentation was interesting. I think it’ll be useful. haveaproblem.com responsive process website experience map: this might be JUST the thing for admissions lunch & learns: talking to the content creators

ux spaces

“everybody has a role to play in ux” (re twitter convo from last session) a bounded set of interactions: action content model in a site w/4 menu items, each one is a space they can be nested ( subject verb object ?) as a [role], I want to [do a thing] in order to [benefit] […]
