Aesthetics in HCI

Maybe don's book and article is interesting to you,

Most of don's view on this topic are very interesting, but one things needs
to think twice, it's a more complex topic about the relationships between
aethetics ( perception as well as experience ) and interaction ( usability
and use experience), which surely beyond "beautiful object works better".

Besides, aesthetics of interaction contributes to using experience or using
beauty as some designers adopted.

RE: pictures of design labs/design rooms

I am looking for pictures of design rooms from creative design firm or design groups in software development companies. Examples would be the design room at Adobe, Peoplesoft, etc.

Basically I am looking for pictures of happy designers collaboratively brainstorming around tables with whiteboards, large sketchpads and hanging their sketches/ideas/brainstorming on corkboards.

Anybody have any? I am trying to build a business case for having a design room and need some pictures to illustrate.

How to transition seamlessly to a new design from an old one?

This is my first post, since I have been an avid reader of ALL the
advices and comments from intellectual people over here. But a small
question popped in my mind when I came across a website that was
redesigned and I was completely lost. Pardon me if this query has
been answered before.

It's an employee intranet portal which had been operational for
around a decade. The UI wasn't changed one bit in all this time.
Later the organization decided it was time to move on and did the
best they could with the UI design.

Incentives to get users to log in and personalize?

I'm working on a re-design of my company's online support community. In our re-design, we plan to offer many more features and customization/personalization options-- but users will need to be logged in to take advantage of them (e.g., suggestions of content and local community connections based on preferences, profiles and locations, ability to customize content and view, etc).

Flash components for rapid prototyping?

Hi all,

Can y'all recommend some free Flash components for UI prototyping purposes?

I'm coming back to Flash after 4 years or so, and hoping that
something has emerged since then. Lately I've been asked to do a lot
of proof-of-concept type stuff for mobile and devices, so I'm looking
for something as generic as possible, to show off the interaction
design and to avoid attracting specific feedback on the graphics. The
default components are ok, but are missing essential stuff like tabbed
views and scroll bars.

list SPAM last night

Hi Everybody.

It looks like we somehow got a bout of spam in the discussions last night.  I've deleted it all and blocked the user, and I'm looking into how that could have happened so that we can fix whatever hole they used to get in.

Really sorry that happened, stay tuned for an update and a fix for this issue.
