Why User Centric Wireless design is so difficult! And why XML really is the answer! (14 Feb 2000)
Last month, I wrote that it just didn't make sense that Web Content providers were having to provide pre-formatted WML rather than XML for Wireless content, rather than just providing data. A data driven approach which allowed the Wireless Carrier to format the data to their own taste made a lot more sense. However, the reality is that WML (or HDML) Content is out there and it will be used. This month I question whether it spells the death of User Centered Design, forcing the Content Aggregator to return to the bad old days of Function Oriented Design, or whether XML might be the saviour.
