Best left-nav ever

I love this [http://www.mondex.org/] left-nav. One to chalk-up for screen
grabbing opportunities to demonstrate worst-case-scenarios.

Anyone care to share any other website howlers? (in a vain attempt to add
some levity to this list for the first time in weeks).

OLPC mechanical design

http://www.bunniestudios.com/blog/?p=218 has a step-by-step
disassembly of the XO laptop, analyzing it from a mechanical design
point of view. This is only tangentially related to the issues raised
in earlier discussion about defects in the usability of the OS/UI, but
I think it's relevant to consider in terms of the holistic user
experience of the product. To wit, the best UI design in the world
won't matter if the hardware breaks down in a few weeks.

UI Translation Resource

Hi All --

Can anyone recommend an agency or online service to translate user
interface text? It will be translated from English to several other
languages, and capturing the tone of voice is just as important as
conveying accurate meaning and localizing ideas in some cases.

I'm based in New York, but open to work with agencies elsewhere.

Thanks in advance,
Victor Lombardi

How do i get started?

Hello members,

Basically i am a visual designer working in a small team. We do detailed
prototype design on Inkjet printers using flash. Its basically to give a
complete understanding of the work flow like copy,print,scan etc for user
research and testing. In these recent days, my personal interest lies in
interaction designing and supporting that my boss wants me to take up some
task flows as exercize to start off. But i do not acquire any sort of
training or experience in Interaction design.
