"We jumped on the chatbot bandwagon with enthusiasm last year, interacting with dozens of chatbots and building several prototypes of our own. Across our research and prototypes it became clear: we still have ways to go before “best practices” for conversational interfaces are established."

Evaluating Tools For Building a Component Library
"Component libraries are living inventories of user interface elements (components). I hadn't yet built one for a client, but I'd heard of a few tools used to do so. What I didn't realize was just how many helpful tools there were. When deciding which to use, I realized I needed to define what I considered most important for this specific project. This post outlines that experience."

Network principles
"Government networks form a platform that enables the delivery of digital services. Good network design should create a user experience that the network is transparent, resilient and ubiquitous, with the right balance of quality, speed, security, control and cost.

These principles help designers deliver this experience for their users when designing networks across government. Note that these are principles, not a set of rules that must be arbitrarily followed. Designers can deviate from them where there is good justification."

6 things I learned creating my own Messenger chatbot
"The modern messaging tools that chatbots run on offer much more ways to interact compared to what previous incarnations of chatbots had, such as those used on IRC or AIM. Much advise on building chatbots that’s out there quietly assumes that all chatbots are just text-in-text-out, which doesn’t match with the platforms they are on. I recently built a chatbot for Facebook Messenger, and these are six things I learned from using other bots in research, building the bot and watching people interact with it."

8 hints for keeping your project well documented
"During every project a lot of knowledge is “stored” in team members brains. Unfortunately, human memory is not the safest place to keep valuable information and that’s why you have to secure the project knowledge “on paper” (of course you will use computer for that). In this article I’ll try to give some hints that I’ve found reasonable for the 3 most common types of documents."

The Atomization of Your Brand Experience
"[…] the difficulty in recent years is that brand experiences have been on an accelerated path to atomization — the breaking down of a user’s brand experience into a distinct series of building blocks — with no slowing down in sight. These building blocks are sometimes called atoms, sometimes called cards, or sometimes called patterns."
