In your pocket, at your wrist, and on your desktop

A working group of experts at the IETF, in concrete ART Area General Applications Working Group (appsawg) is enhancing and updating a protocol. An access protocol, using precise terms.

This access protocol is the one that defines the access to your calendar; the one we technical people know as CalDAV, an open-standard

 CalDAV is designed for implementation by any collaborative software, client or server, that needs to maintain, access or share collections of events.

CalDAV is a real barebone protocol in our days Any collaborative software means the ones you make use everyday without noticing, as transparent as phone calls. Thus includes tasks, reads, and events in your daytime ( calendars , chats, whatsapps, whatever).

Some examples of software that makes your professional life easier may be free personal mail like  MSOutlook, Apple Calendar for IOs, Yahoo Calendar, Google Calendar et al.

The working proposal is featured in section 3.4 of the document. refers to some procedure in this collection of events

This specification defines an extension to the calendar access protocol (CalDAV) to allow attachments associated with iCalendar data to be stored and managed on the server.

Some problem this working group tries to solve are here exemplificated:   To add an attachment to an existing calendar object resource and the access for that event. What measures have to be implemented on the server to ensure the correct request allowing associated data? Which is the best method to ensure the security and wealth of the system and the solicitor after this request? What happens if a user --man or machine -- issues a POST method with attachments than can corrupt or damage the server or the data?

Brought to mind by the excellent work of Julian Reschke 

No distinction , not even required for that obsolete Mobile First development.  CalDAV acces protocol applies both to desktop and mobile devices. Another myth broken by this clean open-standards.

The rest, as always, is silence.

Saying ‘No’ is a UX Strategy Play

I never felt comfortable with the term "user", really.

Not when we are in a media like the web is. Indeed.

Indeed, there was a nice debate, in a niche of experts we met in a subscription list.

I guess the Web Marketing Association board, once, couple of years ago put the question over the question over the table. To find an answer, to solve a problem. t "What if we mean audience instead of users?"

The term audience fits better, like a hand in glove, like the term "people" when we design an strategy plan.

UX strategy plays range from providing regular usability testing, to introducing design studio workshops, to shifting the roadmap from a feature focus to a customer-problem focus.

Play it safe. No tricky timing.


IraLis (International Registry of Authors-Links to Identify Scientists) is a standardization system of scientific authors' signatures.

The promoters were academic and professionals with wide experience in many different areas of activity in their profession, and who are deeply involved in the communication of scientific matters, Even it might seem abandoned, which is not,  IraLis still is a cute repo of use to find the specialist you want

IraLIS was a hype in between the years 2002 and 2010 of our modern era.

Still working. Still indexing.

Constance invites you to unleash your imagination, in a proper way arguing pros and cons.

The question is simple: What do you think must be done to ensure the development of an open, trusted, accessible, and global Internet in the future?

You can take part and place your fingertip in the sand of History, here

Some conversations in these project were already  presented to UN trade experts in April, 2017 in Geneva.  but there is still  a lot to do.

The main intention is to help develop these recommendations to Internet leaders and actors, and policy makers if any for an open, trusted and global Internet in the Future.

A future which is occurring now, by the way. Uh.

I'm done. Your turn.
