is there an official difference between a grid and a table pattern?

All,

This morning my team reviewed this very nice article about free project management apps - http://www.smashingapps.com/2010/09/22/awesome-yet-free-web-apps-to-make-project-managers-lives-easier.html .

When we got down to "Project Bubble", an interaction designer stated that this was a very good use of a grid. When I asked how that differed from the ones above he said becuase it had headers.

The Five Types of Prototypes

So, this whole discussion about making clickable wireframes got me
thinking about something. As I'm working through my book,
interviewing a number of people from different backgrounds, I've come
across 5 different types, or purposes perhaps, for prototype:

1. As a common communication platform–using them to get everyone on
the same page, avoiding misinterpretation of ideas, using them as a
method to show and tell.
2.

Proper layout of article

Articles consist of typical elements: heading, lead, main text and photo(s);
usually there is also some box with "inform a friend", "rate the article",
comments and so on.

I am looking for a studies focusing on this topic: proper web-article
layout.

We are discussing proposed layout of articles in new site; designer's
proposition looks like this one:

How can I get the best out of a UX discovery workshop

I'm starting on a project in the New Year where the client has
arranged a 3 hour UX discovery meeting with 20 stakeholders right at
the beginning of the project before I've had any real time to do my
own research.

The client's objectives for the meeting are to define the personas
and user journeys and the first draft of the structure for the site.

After the meeting I will have an opportunity to conduct one-on-one
interviews.

The project itself is to develop a fairly laborious offline
application process into a streamlined online process.

Usability on "The Fold"

Hi everyone,

I'm doing research on the new "fold" for my company website. The
latest article from Jakob Nielsen looks at Scrolling and Scrollbars
<http://www.cre8asiteforums.com/redirect/jump.php?url=lmth.11705002%2Fxo
btrela%2Fmoc.tiesu%2F%2F%3Aptth> , and appears to make some good points
about how poorly designed scrollbars can frustrate uses, create
accessibility challenges, and cause people to miss information.

Changing role of user research in the UX design process?

During the Interactions 13 conference in Toronto, Paul Adams of Facebook advocated a radically different development cycle than the "ideal" user-centered one (qualitative user research first, then modelling and concept development, followed by prototyping, testing, and iteration).

Strategic Interaction Design

I'm starting a revision of my book Designing for Interaction.

<http://www.designingforinteraction.com>

In the second edition, I'd like to include a chapter on Strategy, that
is: how to decide WHAT should be designed and WHY.

So when I ask, what should interaction designers know about strategy?
You respond...

Robust Flowcharts in Adobe CS?

I've been working as an interaction designer for less than a year (student, interning) and have struggled with finding a good tool to use for creating product flows.  Programs like Fireworks and Flash Catalyst are great for making clickable prototypes.  And programs like Visio are decent for creating flowcharts showing the overall organization of an application.  But the two remain largely separated.

Good alternative to accordions?

Can anyone suggest an alternative to accordions that breaks a workflow into chunks but still allows the user to have multiple sections open at a time?

Omnigraffle IA stencils

Hi all,
For once - a non-snarky Will post. As of this week, I have made the
complete switch to Mac - and after installing Omnigraffle (new OS, new
machine, new everything including new way of doing wireframing and
sitemapping), I am on the hunt for all site mapping and wireframing
stencils.
