Names are Important (was Wood gatherers...)

Good grief! I mean, really?!?

We are not cave people. We don't (only ;) ) communicate with grunts and
chest beating. We have words. Words are one of the most valuable things we
have as humans. They have real meaning. They build up language, which is
at the heart of everything else we build and often at the heart of our
relationships and just generally how we relate to that which is outside
ourselves.

Discussing naming is inextricably intertwined with discussing the underlying
concepts, which are the important bits and what people get worked up over.
Titles are names.

Re: [IxDA] UX résumés- what does yours look like?

Wow. This is a timely discussion as I spent most of the week considering how to sell myself and how to re-write my resume to make it easier to read and make it more appealing.

I’ve done a reasonable amount of hiring in the last few years and I used this experience as a driver for my reworking. When you receive a stack of 20+ resumés you have to sort through them quickly, and for me if I couldn’t quickly see that someone “gets” UX then it was quickly in the out pile. Then I looked for a balance of skills that I/we needed, e.g.

method for keeping track of employee UI suggestions?

Hi - I'm at a new organization, and am trying to develop a method for
allowing employees to make specific suggestions about how the usability of
our software products can be improved. We have about a dozen software
products that are either web-based or palm based.

I'm considering either a wiki, or a tracking system like fogBugz. I expect
that some users will want to post screenshots to explain their points, so
the system should allow for that.

Does anyone currently make use of such a system?

Carousel reference implementations?

Does anyone have pointers to reference implementations for carousels
which deal with acceleration physics?

On a more general note, are there reference implementations available
for "standard" gestures (pinch, stretch, twist, etc)? I would hate
to have to reinvent the, um, carousel...

URL question

I am working on a complex application which has a very basic content
management system as one of its components.

Within this component, it's possible to change the titles of these pages
or move them around within a 3 level hierarchy. Currently, the URLs to
these pages reflect the names and hierarchy of these pages. For example
I have a page titled "My workspace" and then a child page to this titled
"Day to day tasks".
