Looking for IXD blog recommendations

Hi all,

I am a professional in the field looking for current, up-to-date, interaction design blog recommendations. I am an avid reader of ixd  and user experience research, but some of the blogs in our field are out of date.

What some current, great, IXD blogs?

Current IXD health care focused blogs?

Lastly, many of my fellow IXDAer's get valuable user experience information from other types of technology blogs written with a user focused perspective. Know of anything like this?

 

Thanks everyone!

a freelance ID's dilemma

Fellow Designers, can we talk creative business career strategy?

Last week, a Bay Area ad agency hired me to "simplify the UI" of a project under the title Senior Interactive Designer. I expected two to three weeks of freelance work, but I didn't see day three. My conundrum concerns leadership.


I get the job and join a team that doesn't trust each other.

Re: [IxDA] What makes designers frustrated?

how about when people downplay the visual designer's role and say they just "pretty things up"

UX designers at Mozilla did a lot of research on this very thing with Firefox.

Re: [IxDA] What makes an application feel fast?

From Jakob Nielsen, 1993:

"The basic advice regarding response times has been about the same for thirty years [Miller 1968]:

0.1 second is about the limit for having the user feel that the system is reacting instantaneously, meaning that no special feedback is necessary except to display the result.

1.0 second is about the limit for the user's flow of thought to stay uninterrupted, even though the user will notice the delay.
