Link Love: Highlights from the first Week of 2012
If you’re anything like us, you spent a good part of this week responding to emails and catching up with clients. And though your reader of choice was probably jam-packed with tons of articles – and most probably surround the predictions of XYZ thought leader, media influencer, guru for social media in 2012, we’ll leave those out.

Seminar: Interaction Design for Mobiles
by Luis Alveart
Aware of the relevance of the mobile environment, some of the Zemoga team attended the online seminar: Interaction Design for Mobiles. The person in charge was Dani Armengol from Usolab, a firm located in Barcelona, Spain.
The colloquium was very revealing, as we learned interesting and surprising information about the growth of online purchases on mobile devices. We also learned that in the near future people will have more mobile hardware than they will desktop computers, so we need to be prepared to respond to that trend and offer better solutions and more engaging experiences.

like2*v. (likes, liking, liked) 1 find pleasant or satisfactory.
2 wish for; want.

Dear designers wanting to get something published on a blog: Don’t send a mass-email to all the big blogs out there. It doesn’t work.
