Seattle Monthly IA/UX Meetup - February 12th (date change!)

Once a month, we get together to have drinks, chat, network, and geek
out with fellow information architects, librarians, usability experts,
user experience designers, and other like-minded user-centered
professionals and students. It's open to anyone, so bring a friend --
especially those in other local organizations! The format will be
casual, but all are encouraged to bring something to discuss -- recent
work, an interesting topic, or even your resume.

For your consideration, another essay from Paul Rand, from his book
"Thoughts on Design."

To interpret the modern approach to visual communication as mere
sensationalism is to misunderstand the very spirit of our time.

Interface Design Community on Ning

Since Andrei had asked about other communities for interface design I
thought I'd point to a new group over on Ning. Still very much in its
early stages but it looks like it's a synthesis of a few different
points of view: user interface design, HCI, usability and information
architecture.

[Iai-Members] navigation structures and mouseover vs click triggers

Marlene,

I'm sorry I don't have any research to support these comments, but on
a gut instinct level, I don't think clicking in the top navigation to
activate the drop-down menus is good usability. Especially if
sometimes when you click, you get taken to another page.

I assume that on the pages with the drop-down, you'd have to repeat
the parent page name if there is one, so that users can then click to
go there. This sounds confusing.

Testing for "No Flash" situation

I'm doing some reviews of a site and I need to be able to test what
happens if someone doesn't have Flash Player, has an older version or
has it disabled (for whatever reason). I would love to be able to get
some SnagIt's of the screens I see, but I need to find a reliable way of
simulating the experience, preferably with a Firefox add-on instead of
having to turn to Browsercam or a similar service.

Removing and reinstalling Flash Player isn't an option, and we don't
have any test machines without Flash on them. Anyone know of a plugin
or method I could use?
