This is a great video of Anina as she is interviewed on Nerd TV.  What is really interesting about this video is that it dispels whatever pre-conceived notions one may have of female fashion models and technology. Although she seems more tech savvy than most, you will notice that she looks at the user experience from that of the common person on the interface and experience of using mobile data devices.

"Anina: Not to mention, you know then actually being able to use the mobile Internet okay and then I take the RSS feed and I just do a little bit of conversion to put it into mobile format, so each blog in my project is visible on the mobile Internet. So, that means again, I'm running around, I'm in wherever it is, you know, Belgium Netherlands, Diane Pernet, she just got back from New Zealand Fashion Week. You know running around the globe, she may or may not be able to go to an Internet point and see and take a look at her blog and just make sure that everything is okay. But she can just go in her phone and check it and make sure it's posting, make sure everything is okay. You know, she can even on the spot do a little marketing for herself and say like, oh yeah, I've got a blog. Here it is. And she can SMS the URL into someone else's mobile device and then they can read her blog without having to go to the Internet. You know? So, that means that you can be on the beach in the summertime and still stay connected to all the news and all the information that you really enjoy or for example, I was in South of Italy climbing Mount Etna and I needed to know when the train was back from one side of the island to the other and we were in a restaurant, and of course, small town city, the train station is closed at night. You know? So the first thing I did was like oh, and so I used the Opera browser in the phone to go to dbon.da, you know. It comes out a little bit garbled, you know. But more or less, you understand where the input fields are. I inputted information and I was like okay you guys, so tomorrow at 7 is the train. The train station doesn't open. We would never have known that so we would have missed an entire day that we would know what we had to do in actual to travel. So, I think there is a lot of situations that maybe you haven't encountered but that I encounter or that other people encounter that are really, really mobile.

...

Anina: Yea, that are developers, you know. There is Mysimbian.com, where you can just see a whole bunch of applications, which are made for the phone. My problem is that I think a lot of these applications are made by technicians who are perhaps you know not thinking "real life applications". You know? Where my forte is is that I am at an advanced user, so I also understand the people around me. So I understand a user perspective and then I am able also to develop. So, I'm able from a digital architecture standpoint to actual understand sort of how the molecule needs to, you know how the data needs to flow and the actual steps that an average user or a normal person would take logically to go to A, B or C. You know, how many clicks or how they would logically arrive intuitively, you know, to do whatever the application wants to do. So, I think a lot of the programs and the applications that I see out there - I don't really load a lot of things onto my phone because they are not doing what I really want them to do.

 

maybe Kate Moss runs a supercomputer cluster somewhere.....
