Creating User Interfaces to Work Within a CMS

I hear ya, Jennifer. I work with a coldfusion-based content management
system and I don't think the community is as big and those of PHP and
.Net. We have 1 developer on staff who for some reason or another,
does not know the CMS at all (go figure). Anyway, we are totally
locked into basically 4 template styles. Each of the template styles
have "elements" of the page that you can edit in either the wysiwyg
mode or the html mode. I basically resorted to exploiting the html
editing portion of the thing!

Pixel Perfect ppi

Fellow Designers,

What is the best way to design icons for multiple devices? Different devices (Andriod, Windows Phone 7) have different screen specs - each phone has a different pixel-per-inch resolution.

By what method would one ensure that icons look crisp across devices with different ppi?

Thanks!

Desktop Application: Look and Feel

This is a two part question:

[1] If there are a number of desktop software products for a platform,
other than menu placement, and branding,
what factors should be considered to provide the same look and feel?

[2] What technologies can be used to create these for desktop applications?

User Experience Network.

Things are just getting going with the Yahoo group but we already have a
good mix of interaction designers,
usability consultants, and information architects represented.

Two-factor Authentication and Biometrics

Hi,

Out of curiosity, has anybody implemented two-factor authentication
using biometrics (e.g., fingerprint, voice, etc.) as the second
factor?

Thanks!

UX Brunch Baltimore!

Let's brunch together! Since Jeff Parks and I will be in Baltimore the weekend of 22-24 April for Rush (the band, Friday night) and the game (O's v. Yanks, Saturday night), we thought, "hey, let's get together & brunch on Saturday with some UXers in the area!"

Thus was UX Brunch Baltimore (#UXBrunchBalto on the Twitterz) born.

So, who's in? Who can arrange a place for us around 11:00 a.m.? Probably 15 folks? In walking distance perhaps from Aliceanna Street (between Fells Point & the Harbor)? Or a cab ride?

MEX in London September 6&7

Is anybody going to MEX (Mobile User Experience?) conference in London?

If so, I'd be interested in doing an adhoc F2F Wednesday evening in a pub.

Pleasant Surprises

I am interested in collecting examples of pleasant surprises in interaction design--primarily screen-based, but not exclusively.

An example would be when I was trying to figure out how to increase font size on my daughter's Kindle touch. I tried pinch-out and it opened the font size controls.
