why frames are bad

I guess I'm feeling perverse today, but those poor downtrodden frames need a
defender! David said:

The reasons that frames don't work:

1. harder on searchengines
2. bookmarking becomes difficult
3. calculating frame sizes isn't x-browser equal
4. frames the way implemented in the HTML does not map to user expectations
in terms of scrollbar layout and what not

Strictly speaking, items 1 and 2 don't work well in most web STRATEGIES, but
this does not mean that web pages with frames don't display their content
just fine.

How did you first get into interaction design?

I recently wrote a post about how I became an application designer. Originally I worked as sound designer/ editor for games in Los Angeles, and had a need for tool to help my colleagues and I on job, that I managed to design and develop.

Re: [IxDA] iMockups for iPad?

There's a small discussion I kicked off a while ago about wireframing on the iPad[1] that may be of interest.

I now have a copy of iMockups that I've been dipping into here and there. For fast stuff it's pretty good, but I haven't built anything complex with it yet.

Thoughts on UXmap

A few months ago I was looking for a local design consultancy in Japan, and had trouble finding one. I thought it would have been great if design and UX-related information is organized geographically. I came up with UXmap.com and began providing local UX information about consultancies, labs, vendors, conferences, education, associations, events, and jobs. I can see how it supports needs of both design and UX people as well as their stakeholders. What do you think? Is there a need for this?

Launching "User Interface Trends" site -- http://uitrends.com

I'm in the process of launching a new site (http://uitrends.com) with the
purpose of:

1) collecting trends and interesting user interface designs for websites and
web applications
2) promoting discussion (comments, rating, etc.) of the trends/designs

The site is definitely in beta, but want to share now with the community
because what is most
important to me on the site is the opinion and input of others. The more
expert input, the better.

Hope you find it interesting and useful.

Recruiting & cold calling: pitfalls?

A client has asked us to cold-call some existing customers to do some
fast research on purchasing decisions. This isn't an activity we
normally engage in, so I'm treading carefully.

The survey is fairly short (about 15 questions) and includes a $50
incentive. The call script looks tidy, with the incentive called out
very quickly. We believe the questions are short and clear, and easy
to answer via the phone (as opposed to a readable format like paper
or web). Anybody have additional items we should double-check, or
basic guidance from past experience using this technique?

Thanks in advance
