Feature control on user interfaces

Hi All,

As applications grow, so does the demand for new features. I am curious
about two things. In the industry:

[1] What methods are used to determine the most "used" features as opposed
to the most "wanted" features?
[2] How often is this process repeated?

Any pointers will be appreciated.

[Event] Chicago IxDA --Topic: Sustainable Interaction Design --Wed October 8th

Hello fellow Chicagoans,

Please join us on Wednesday, October 8th for our next Chicago IxDA

Frank Gruger, and his colleagues from Orbitz, will be facilitating a
discussion on Sustainable Interaction Design. As interaction designers we
may have felt immune to the call of sustainability and the green movement.
Up until now it seems to have been largely the concern of architects and
industrial designers connected to the use of green materials.

The future of mobile iTV

Posted on behalf of Anxo Roibas. Please reply to the list or Anxo


As you probably know, several network operators in Europe are working hard
to provide soon TV broadcast across mobile phones.

I'd like to have your personal view (or just intuition) about the future of
mobile or pervasive iTV from the user experience point of view: how do you
imagine it should be and how you'd like to it be (applications, content,
interaction modalities...).

Thanks in advance,

information navigation can be fun

This is really terrific:

Trying to figure out why...
- I think one thing is that so much space is given to navigating the space
and comparatively little is given to the leaf topics (just the box in the
lower right and the music itself).
- Responsiveness! zero latency = no reason to stop
- It's always fun to check out an old subject in a new way.
- You can multitask by listening to one item, while planning your next
- Some kind of interesting multi-channel juxtaposition going on.

Should interaction designer produce code...(Formally: Open Position: Sr. Interaction Designer @ MITRE)

Interaction design is not developing HTML, Forms,

It is about understanding

Ø Who are users?

Ø What they really want (goals, tasks)?

Ø Where application will be used (application context)?

One of our clients wanted to develop a Sales Management System,

analyzing the context helped us to develop trimmed down version for Sales
People who are in move.

Actually this is not in his original proposal.

Ø How the application should interact.

where to use eye tracking?

Hi all,

Recently I got chance to try out eye tracking setup for one project. But I'm little confused about what phase is appropriate for using eye tracking. I mean for performance test, we can take tasks and test with users and get observations, for affordance test, I don’t think there is any need of eye tracking setup (as it can be executed by asking questions). So according to my understanding, eye tracking is purely for re-design so is this understanding correct?

Thanks, Kishor Sonawane
