Distinguishing between UCD, UX, and usability

A friend and sometimes client told me over lunch this week, "I think
of you as the usability guy." I didn't much care for this, because
I think of usability in terms of activities rather than an identity
to aspire to. It got me thinking about related terms, like "user
experience" (UX), and its cousin, user-centered design (UCD).

Re: [IxDA] How else can you say login and register

This is an unsubstantiated claim, and even if more apps use "login" than "log in," of which I'm far from convinced, the notion that users would be at a loss when encountering one rather than the other strikes me as silly.

Decision Tree vs Decision Table

I am currently working on a project where we need a method of creating conditional logic and execution. We are currently stuck between two types of implementations.

The first is more of a decision tree implementation. Each condition has a yes and a no clause and the statements can be nested. (decision-tree.png)

Persona creation tools

I am wondering if except for the already well known, whiteboard, sticky notes, markers and large sheets of paper are there any digital tools available to facilitate the collection/analysis of data, creation of personas and of course of scenarios in a shared environment?!

If you are not aware of such a tool, what are the pieces of software that you'd use together in order to satisfy such goals?!

I have found a couple of videos showcasing a prototype for a touch responsive interface created at Stanford that aims at becoming such a tool

MSc User Experience Kingston University

Hi,

I have been looking into the Masters in User Experience Design in Kingston University.  I was wondering does any one have any experience of it?  Good, bad or indifferent?

http://www.kingston.ac.uk/postgraduate-course/user-experience-design-msc/

I know it has recently chaged from being an MA and MSc to just being an MSc.  My background is in design and advertising and although I would like to know all apsects of the field research etc, I would not like it to be at the expense of my strengths ie. design.
