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.

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.

iRise vs. Axure - Community response - Patent-free thread

First, my apologies to Andrei and anyone else who may be affected by having
links to patents in their email. I had NO idea about the impact.
In response to Josh Seiden who, speaking for the IxDA board, encouraged us
to come up with a plan of action, I'd like to start this new thread. To
anyone taking part in the discussion, please refrain from a discussion of
any patents, posting snippets thereof, or links to patent sites. Thanks!

The purpose of this thread is to discuss not the patent itself or whether
Axure infringed or not, but to discuss our response to this lawsuit as a
community.

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).

Defining a UX vision

Does anyone have any samples of a good UX vision statement? Everyone
talks about how important it is to have a good UX vision, but I
can't find anything that defines exactly what a "good UX vision"
is. I've been trying to develop one from scratch and I'm not sure
how it should be structured or what it should contain. Should it
contain specifics like "we need a dedicated UX group in our company
that all our design teams can use"? I don't want it to be
product-centered, because we build a whole range of applications.

OLPC: Sugar Not So Sweet?

I'd be interested in hearing from interaction designers who have
played extensively with the new One Laptop Per Child UI ("Sugar").

I saw the first public demo of Sugar back in August at AP's UX Week:

but never really got to play with it.

Internationalization Recommendation?

I was hoping that folks with experience in internationalization/translation of products might be able to weigh in here.

In a mobile application design, we're using a linear next/last navigation where next is on the right and last is on the left. The user can also swipe between screens.


When it gets translated for cultures that read right to left, should next be at the left and last be at the right?

Sketching ideas for an open source / open design UI prototyping project?

Hello,

A few months ago I announced that I have started an open source UI
prototyping project - fluidIA:
http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=38403
http://www.fluidia.org

Since then, the project has moved forward and I just wanted bring to
attention at least one possibility for Interaction / User Interface
Designers to get involved - through open sketching.

Hey all.

For some of you who do web work and have heard of Blueprint, you'll
know it's an XHTML+CSS means for creating nicely structured grid
systems for layout work on the web.

Wireframe Templates in Visio

Hello,

I have been actively following this group for months. Very good
resource.

I am interested in examples of using Visio as a tool beyond workflow
diagraming.

Does anyone have examples of using Visio as a tool for creating
wireframes? I currently use Illustrator for my wireframes - the big
downside to this application is the difficulty in multiple page
formatting for wireframes.

Thanks in advance for your advice and examples!
