A potential customer sent me this on Friday so that I could share with the UX team. Since I know the Lotus Connections UI Designers follow this blog, I thought I would share this here instead of emailing them.
Aden Davies, who I met through Twitter and the Lotus Connections Twitter Feed, works as an "Innovation Technician at a large bank". We were talking about some of the new features in 2.0.1 and he shared his vision of a great addition to our widgets. He actually sat down and spent the time developing this mockup.
I actually liked this a lot. I even suggested something like this be added because it's very similar to the home page feed you would see in Facebook.
The idea is to provide a better feed as to what's going on around you.
I think this is also a great example of how Twitter can be used to improve collaboration with your customers and drive innovation into products faster!
