Representations of Group Calendars/Time Events

Hi all,

I'm working on a new way to represent calendaring/even scheduling. it
seems that almost all representations of calendars & time, be it a
daily or weekly view, show time vertically and days or groups
horizontally. A few tools represent it the other way (think Outlook
Calendar appointment availability checking). yet I'm wondering if
there are other ways to represent this. Imagine things like different
tracks for a conference or say a department schedule in an academic

Icon suggestions for account related activities


A friend was asking for icon suggestions for the following:

account info, edit profile, add funds, change password and (view)
account history

I did get back saying I needed to know the context, but thinking if
anyone has any good references to sites to give inspiration for icon
design, I'll pass this on.

Thanks for any suggestions and your help.

Enjoy the day!

Does it make sense for me to go back to school for Cognitive Psychology?

I majored in Industrial Design and HCI but am interested in Cognitive Psychology, but after reading Don Norman's article about the flaw in design education, I think what he says makes sense in that a lot of designers end up as pixel pushers because they don't really know much about people and how they behave to be designing for them, so they end up focusing on visuals only, which further causes companies to think designers are there to make things "pretty" rather than solve problems.

Should an e-commerce design agency test the usability of its own designs?

Recently I was on an e-commerce strategy project. I received a
usability test report that the previous agency had produced after
testing their own design work. I went back to the source tapes and
there seemed to be a dramatic difference between the level of
problems users were having in the sessions, and the resulting report.

I know it's convenient for e-commerce site owners to get an
integrated package, esp. when large MSA's are in place. And trying
to keep ahead of Agile cycles puts strain on the schedule and number
of partners.

Chat link

At the risk of reopening the Twitter vs. IRC discussion, I'd like to
mention that Jeff Howard has been kind enough to set up a link to the
IxDA chat channel:


This link currently redirects to our #ixda channel on Freenode, but in
the future it might go somewhere else. The point is that if you want
to chat with other IxDA members in real time, that's the place to go.
Please consider including that link in Tweets or emails to the list as
an indication that you'd like to chat about your topic.

A Tale of Two Phones

I know we had an active discussion about the iPhone when it launched, but I
thought that you might enjoy a short essay I just wrote on our blog called a
Tale of Two Phones. It¹s about the differences between my experiences with
my Nokia 9500 and my iPhone. You can find it at http://tinyurl.com/ys2852

Happy reading!
