NYC-UPA: More room very likely in Card Sort workshop on May 31


Here's an update on the Card Sort workshop for May 31st.

* We are 90% sure that we will have a site available that will seat 45
attendees. That's an additional 20 seats.

* It's on West 44th between 5th and 6th. The exact location will be
announced when it's finalized.

* The announcement will be made by the end of the day Friday May 25th. We
have the room but would like to visit it first to confirm it is the right
for this event.

* There are now also additional spots on the waiting list. If you are
interested, please sign up because you are likely to get in.

Documentation Version Numbers

I'm trying to establish a documentation numbering standard for my team,
and there is some initial resistance to the approach I've used for
years. I'm wondering what approach you all use, or what your opinions
are on the merits and drawbacks of these two approaches.

Approach A: Every revision of a document is given a new integer-value
version number. For instance, Site Map v6 is updated and becomes Site
Map v7.

Approach B: Every version of a document made during the "Define" phase
of a project is numbered 0.x.

Headers for internal biz apps

My huge IxD squad here at work (and by huge, I mean there's a whopping 2
of us) mainly work on consolidating all of the company's apps onto a
single RIA platform. This platform is made up of 'modules' that each
serve a different business function.

The question of headers for each module has come up recently, and I'd
like to hear some opinions on this to add to our debate. Some of our
modules have a header, some don't. For the ones that don't, it's pretty
much the browser chrome and then the app itself.

Re: [IxDA] how to design collaboratively in an interview

Trying to introduce collaboration into the interview, while it sounds good is probably just a recipe for disaster.
