Crash… ʻaʻohe leo ʻe-foo e ʻoluʻolu.

KuʻiʻO nehinei ka lā mua i hoʻi mai wau i ka home a zonked i waho. I kēia lā ua hina wau. E like me nā mea he nui, he ʻano hana wau. ʻO ka mea hoihoi, ʻo kaʻu mau maʻamau i kēlā me kēia pule. ʻO kaʻu mau hopena pule ua aneane pinepine i ka hana-piha no laila ʻo kēlā me kēia maʻamau aʻu i ka pule ma mua, hoʻopau mau ʻia e ke ahiahi Pōʻaono. Inā lohi wau i ka hana ma ka Pōʻakahi, lohi wau i ka pule āpau. Inā hana lohi wau i ka Pōʻakahi ... hana wau i ka hopena o ka pule.

I kēia hopena pule hope ua hana wau i ka hopena pule holoʻokoʻa. Ke hele nei mākou i kahi hoʻokuʻu no ka hana, a ke pāʻani nei au ma lalo o 6 mau ʻaoʻao ʻaoʻao i ka manawa like. He leʻaleʻa ka hana kaulike, akā makemake wau e lawe i nā mea hou aku a nui aku ... a hana ʻoi aku ka paʻakikī a paʻakikī hoʻi. I ka pō nei ua loaʻa iaʻu a ʻōlohelohe wau. I kēia pō, ua hāʻule wau. Lele ʻia wau i waho. A ua hoʻomaka wau i kaʻu 'hebedoma o nā maʻamau' i kahi hoʻomaka maikaʻi ʻole. I kēia manawa e luhi koke wau i koʻu hoʻi ʻana mai ka hale mai ka hana a ʻike paha wau e hiamoe ana i kēlā me kēia pō ke hoʻi mai wau i ka hale. ʻArgh.

Ma ka ʻaoʻao ʻōlinolino, ʻo ia hoʻi ke koi nei au, he mea maikaʻi mau! Ma ka ʻaoʻao maikaʻi ʻole, ʻaʻole au makemake i ka hoʻonohonoho ʻana i kaʻu hana. He ʻike maikaʻi loa wau i ka lawe ʻana i ka maikaʻi a me ka hāʻawi ʻana. Makemake au i ke kīnā ʻole. aʻole wau makemake pono ke hāʻawi nei ... ʻoiai ʻaʻole ʻike kaʻu mau mea kūʻai aku i ka ʻokoʻa. ʻO ka hāʻawi pinepine ʻana he mau mahina ma hope ua ʻike wau iaʻu iho e 'hana hou' ʻana i kahi mea aʻu i ʻike hiki ai iaʻu ke hana maikaʻi loa i ka lawe ʻana inā loaʻa iaʻu ka manawa keu.

ʻO ke kālepa a me ka polokalamu pinepine e like me kēia, akā, ʻaʻole ʻoe e noʻonoʻo? Koi ʻia nā palena manawa i ka make a hoʻolei pinepine i ka maikaʻi. ʻOi aku ka nui o ke kalena ma mua o nā hopena. ʻOi aku ka ikaika o ka hoʻopakele ma mua o ka pono e hoʻopakele. I ka manawa pinepine, ʻike wau e ʻoi aku ka makemake o nā mea kūʻai aku i nā hiʻohiʻona, nā hana, a me nā mea hoʻonani e kiʻi i kekahi mea i ko lākou mau lima ma mua o ka hope. He kīnā ʻAmelika paha kēia? Holo, ʻāwīwī, hoʻowawāwewe… hā. A i ʻole he kīnā honua kēia?

ʻAʻole wau e kākoʻo i ka 'creep'. ʻO Creep ke manawa e hoʻomau ka wehewehe ʻana o ka hoʻopau ʻana i 'creep' a hiki i ka wā e hiki ʻole ai iā ʻoe ke hoʻopau i kahi papahana. Hoʻowahāwahā wau i ka 'creep'. ʻOiai ʻaʻohe mea kolo, pehea mākou e ʻike ʻole ai ka manawa e hoʻokō pono ai?

Ma ka hale hana kokoleka hema, kauoha wau i kaʻu kope me ʻaʻohe foo-foo… ʻO ia hoʻi ʻaʻohe puna kokoleka, ʻaʻohe whip cream, ʻaʻohe cherry, ʻaʻohe lepo o ke kokoleka a pīpī paha i ka syrup ... ʻo ke kope wale nō. ʻAʻole loaʻa iaʻu ka kope e ka foo-foo, me ke kali ʻole no nā mea ʻē aʻe.

Kaha: inā ʻaʻole ʻoe i hele i ka ʻO ka hale hana kokoleka hema, ke nalo nei ʻoe i kahi maikaʻi me nā limahana maikaʻi. He ʻano ko lākou ... ʻaʻole nā ​​drone noʻonoʻo ʻole. A i ka manawa mua loa e kiʻi i kahi mocha maikaʻi, e hōʻoia e loaʻa ka foo-foo. He ʻoluʻolu maikaʻi.

E hoʻi i kaʻu kuhi… makemake nā ʻoihana Google, Flickr, 37 Hoailona a me nā kūleʻa hou o kēia ao e hoʻolei i ka 'foo foo'. Kūkulu kēia mau poʻe i ka lako polokalamu maikaʻi ʻole me ka foo foo. Kūkulu lākou i nā noi e hoʻopau i ka hana, a kūpaʻa paʻa ʻaʻole hana ma mua o kēlā. Hana ia. Hana maikaʻi ia. Manaʻo paha kekahi ʻaʻole maikaʻi 'maikaʻi' ʻoiai no ka nele i ka foo-foo. Hōʻike ka nui o nā helu a me nā helu hānai iaʻu ʻaʻole pololei kēia no ka hapanui. Makemake wale lākou e hana i ka hana - hoʻonā i ka pilikia! ʻIke wau i kaʻu hana, hoʻolōʻihi mākou i ka manawa ma ka foo-foo.

Mahalo wau inā e hina ʻoe me ka ʻaʻohe foo foo.

Pono paha mākou e hoʻomaka i ka hoʻonohonoho ʻana i kā mākou lawe i kēia ala i hiki iā mākou ke hoʻopakele i ka ʻoi aku ka maikaʻi a me ka wikiwiki:

Foo-foo:He aha kā mākou e kāhea aku ai? Pehea e nānā ai? He aha nā koho āpau e hiki iā mākou ke kau i loko? He aha nā mea hoʻokūkū e hana nei? He aha kā mākou mea kūʻai aku e makemake ai? Āhea mākou e hana ai?
ʻAʻohe foo-foo: He aha ana e hana ai? Pehea ia e hana ai? Pehea e manaʻo ai ka mea hoʻohana e hana ia? He aha nā mea e pono ai kā mākou mea hoʻohana? Pehea ka lōʻihi o ka hana ʻana?

    Foo-foo, foo-foo…still trying to get a grasp of what this means in relation to software, as opposed to coffee. With coffee it seemed simple enough, as in foo-foo was all of the extraneous stuff that was not coffee persay. From your examples of firms that toss out the foo-foo, all web 2.0 it seems, their software seems based on ‘simplicity’, at least from a user standpoint, both functionally and aesthetically. I suppose wher I get a bit confused is where you ask foo-foo vs. no foo-foo questions, as I’m not sure whether some of these questions produce foo-foo or not in either catagory.

    What are we going to call it? Well, google, flickr and the names for the software designed by 37 signals all seem fairly catchy and important, and I think some time went into coming up with them. How is it going to look? Simple, clean, web 2.0…again some thought went into this for those companies, options…still foo-foo I think. What are our competitors doing, still important, if onlt in order to do the opposite, or at least not do what they are doing. What clients want is important…what clients think they want is not as important. When do we have to have it done, still important, especially in the internet software sphere.

    What is it going to do? How is it going to do it? No foo-foo here I think. How would a user expect it to do it? To me this could be either foo or non-foo. What do our users need? I think non-foo here. How long will it take to have it done. Ok so the second set of questions seems fairly non-foo to me. The first set is what confused me a bit.

    Perhaps the most important question to me is ‘Why is it needed?’

    Summae,

    You are on track with my point. The questions are very similar, but they all break down to exactly the question you asked… ‘Why is it needed?’

    I have a colleague and friend, ʻO Chris Baggott, who is fond of asking “What problem does it solve?”. The name of the app, the look, the options, the competition, the wants, the timing… all of those are paid attention to in the software world, but it’s never asked… “What problem does it solve?”

    We should be spending time on the right questions, rather than spending so much time answering the wrong ones!

Pehea kou manaʻo?
