What's the difference between Delete and Remove?

I was discussing this very question with some friends and co-workers and
wanted to get other designers thoughts on this one.

The definition of "Delete" includes remove;

Delete: to strike out or remove (something written or printed); cancel;
erase; expunge.

But "Remove" does not include "Delete";

Remove: to move from a place or position; take away or off...

(cursory search via Dictionary.com)

I think about deleting as removing too. But I think about removing as, well,
re-moving.

Open source wireframe software

Hi All,

Any recommendations for an open source wireframe tool? Something that is
similar to Axure - the license is too expensive for me.

Thanks,
Oliver

Thoughts on Alan Cooper's Keynote

When Alan Cooper delivered the opening keynote at Interactions08 this
morning, I was once again struck by how sensible his view is. As I
understood his core argument, it was:

1. We know that the best interactive products are not the first to
market but the ones that have the best quality design.

2. Business managers often fail to understand this because they do not
know how to manage "creatives" among whom he numbers both interaction
designers and programmers.

3. The typical business approach is to develop requirements and then
build the product.

It sucks to be a Jr. Interaction Designer/Jr. Usability Specialist/ Jr. User Experience Designer

For those graduating in 2008 (When the crisis started), 2009 (when the crisis was at the peek) and 2010 (when almost every 4th is unemployed in Malmö and Copenhagen Area), it really sucked/sucks to be a user centered designer. NO FREAKING JOBS! I was lucky enough to get hired as a technical writer with emphasis on usability....this was my first career job and I learned alot. Its just sad that it lasted for 13 months only.... My employer had to let 35 employees go. I was one of them.

IX / UX or UI designer?

Hi All,

All through my career, as a Graphic Designer I never explored anything other than graphic and print design. Now, I am interested and want to expand my skill set. I have no coding knowledge, but can understand HTML and css codings. I am not good with coding and at this point in my career, I dont want to get into it. I am interested to learn more about IX, UX and UI design. Wherever I search, I am not able to find any standard description or  defined career path for UX, IX  / UI designer.

Searching for UX principles for designing an Arabic language website

Hi,
I'm sat here in Doha [Qatar] in the middle of a week of user-testing an English/Arabic travel website. One concern for our design approach is to not just "flip the text RTL" for the Arabic translation. We'd really like to actually do something meaningful for the Arabic version [yes, its early in the project and our hopes flourish].

Primarily I'm trying to find UX principles for designing an Arabic language website. From both Western and Arabic-based UX practitioners. Articles, thoughts and examples on designing Arabic language websites.
