I think the blank space you're referring to is reserved to show
collaboration, so it's not strictly wasted space. It might be worth
comparing the current implementation to the mockups here:
In particular, look at slides 2 and 3. I'd be happy to hear feedback
on how to improve those designs. I think dropping "Activity" from the
default instance names is a fine idea. In fact, I'm still hoping that
we can institute a policy that allows activities to specify their own
defaults, so that instead of getting "Paint Activity" I could instead
get "Eben's Painting." I think exploring the exposure of tags in the
list view (by making the title portion two lines, with the tags
beneath the title) is worth exploring. Getting the tagging system out
in the open would be really beneficial, I think.
