Hi, I have decided to leave Sun by end of 2007. Therefore it does not make sense to continue to be a co-lead for the User Experience Project any longer. It was a fun ride. cheers, Matthias
I would like to introduce myself. Long overdue. But here we go.
Matthias Müller-Prove, Diplom (MSc) in Computer Science at U of Hamburg with special focus on human-computer interaction and the history of hypertext and graphical user interfaces.
Before Sun I worked for Adobe Systems as User Interface Manager (among other job titles) on the web editor Adobe GoLive (fka Cyberstudio).
Then I joined Sun Microsystems - 5 years ago - to work as Product Manager and User Experience Engineer. Those were the days of OpenOffice.org 1.1. Remember?
I am glad that we finally opened this discuss channel for issues affecting the user experience of OOo. Lot's of stuff has happened over the past years -- but it was very very scattered among issues and specifications.
As co-lead of the ux.ooo project, my goal is to inspire an active community of usability and design professionals to improve the user experience of OOo.
cheers from Hamburg, Matthias
