Event Report :: The Future of Digital Product Design

Dirk Knemeyer is an excellent speaker with a flare for the dramatic and put
together a great presentation on "The Future of Digital Product Design."
Showing a very interesting diagram that illustrated all of the forces at
work in product design--marketing/engineering, the business vision/the
product's functionality and its enabling technology/people and their
experience of a product--Dirk discussed the anatomy of product design. His
talk then touched on the evolution of digital products--including digital
convergence and next-gen digital products.

Question about full 1024 width of SmashingMagazine web site

Anyone have any thoughts on Smashing's expanded 1024 layout for higher res monitors?

Noticed they collapse to 990 at 1024, but go to the full 1024 as you expand out.

Who is making this move now? What's the standard or best practice? Client is looking for inspiration on HuffPo and other newsy sites. Sees the 960 grid, but wants to ascertain what the current thinking is on expanding out to 1024.


Best regards,

I want to share with you a different approach that is much more minimalist. Feel free to chime in and let me know what you think.

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".

"Fast Flip is a new reading experience that combines the best
elements of print and online articles. Like a print magazine, Fast
Flip lets you browse sequentially through bundles of recent news,

Time selection

I have a settings page where in Admin has to set Log In Time, Log Out Time, Timezone settings from Monday to Friday to all the agents. In the "mockup1" I have designed, Admin needs to select the time for all days. This will take a lot of time as he has to click 30 times to complete.

Last Login Session Details - necessary?


I'm working on a community events website where artist are able to
register to the site in order to take advantage of cool features. How
important is it to make 'last login session' details available to users
upon logging back in? Information like IP address, last session length,
date last logged in, etc. I feel this is really unnecessary for this
type of site but others disagree.
