Call for Your Participation – Session: “Practicing what we Preach”

As researchers and practitioners we help companies and organizations to design easy-to-use, usable, useful, and pleasurable websites. Sometimes, we seem to be "the shoemaker's children." We sometimes lack the time to put as much effort in our own websites as we advise others to do.

What is a mobile phone called in your country?

I'm aware that different countries have different generic names for
their mobile phones (as we call them here in Australia).

In the USA it seems to be a "cell phone", in parts of Asia where
I've worked it is a "handy phone".

Any others?

I need this for a way of a user differentiating mobile phone numbers
from land-line phone numbers.

thanks

Stephen

What are the most happening places for UX in USA?

Hi All,

I would like to know the most happening place for UX in USA. It can be  based on number of UX people in that location, conferences, formal & informal UX meets, UX training workshops, design colleges, etc.

I was told that BOSTON is best place for UX to relocate for work by few designers but i would love to know the real facts from our IXDA community.

Thx

Kumar

IAS09+IxD09 = RedUX DC

You couldn't attend Interaction '09 in Vancouver because you are on a
TSA watch list.

You didn't attend IA Summit '09 because Memphis BBQ doesn't sit well
with your new healthy lifestyle.

Join us and some amazing speakers for the first ever combined IAS'09 +
IxD'09 Redux DC.

We are planning an IAS09+IxD09 Redux! We have invited a number of
fantastic people in the UX community from DC, Richmond, Philly and NYC
to come down to the nations capital for a half day presenting
condensed versions of their talks.

Interaction Design Career Path

Hi all.... I can't remember whether there was a conversation about career
paths in our realm, so I thought I would start one. Currently I am a senior
IxDer and starting to plot out my career path. Would love to hear from
those who were in my shoes before that made the transition to the next step.
I'm curious as to not only your personal view on the career path, but the
employers' view on career paths in this realm too.
TIA,
David

Tools for building a pattern library

What tool(s) did you use to set up your UI pattern library?

I know this question has been asked before*, but after repeated searches I'm not finding much of an answer. Seems there aren't any simple ways of doing this.

I'm currently using a mix of documents in collaboration with custom built (aka one-off) web-based solutions, but these aren't optimal for several reasons:

Marking Required vs. Optional form fields

When creating a form, do you feel that it is more advantageous to mark
the required fields, even if they are in the majority? I ask because
I'm working on some guidelines for a client, and there is some debate
about which way to go with this. After reading Luke Wroblewski's book,
"Web Form Design: Filling In the Blanks", I have to agree with his
sentiment about indicating the MINORITY of the form elements:

FROM 'Web Form Design': "Many times there actually are
good reasons for indicating what is required when updating or creating a
record online.

Paper is not a prototyping tool. It's a design tool. It's a sketching
tool. It's a way to get ideas directly from one's brain into the
world with as little information loss as possible. But it's not a
prototyping tool.
