The project was to build a better microblogging service, that put the information ahead of the social connections, while also providing a less noisy means of information discovery.
The project had to give users a way to follow news stories and news sources, while also providing a way to filter out their resulting news feed. It also had to provide a means of discussion and popularizing around any news story. The challenge was to get all of this to be accessible on one page, without making it look like it was too complex to use or navigate. I followed the motto "Design for the novice, configure for the pro" in determining how it would work.
