search results display

I'm working on a content site's search results page. Are there any "best
practices" regarding Search Results display?
I've read Luke W's Innovations... <http://www.lukew.com/ff/entry.asp?171>
Is there anything anyone else has used?

Onboarding process for SoundCloud

Hi everyone:

I'm working on an analysis of the onboarding/sign-up process for music sites like SoundCloud, for a research project on user adoption of social music tools. I'd love to get some feedback from the community on the pros/cons of sign-up? Does it work already? How could this be improved? Your thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.

Online Newspapers as Wikis

Hi guys,

Long time lurker but first time poster. I'm usually a bit too shy to
post but I'd really love to hear people's opinions on a project I'm
working on at the moment.

The main concept of the project is to foster involvement of the
general public in the daily news cycle, and ultimately to improve the
print edition of newspapers through a combination of reader
participation and traditional journalism.

[EVENT] Next IxDA Brisbane event, 27 Oct 2009


What made the Sopranos finale one of the most-talked-about events in
television history? Why is sudoku so addictive and the iPhone so
irresistible? What do Jackson Pollock and Lance Armstrong have in common
with theoretical physicists and Buddhist monks?

This month IxDA Brisbane is teaming up with UX Book Club Brisbane (

lively discussion around E.

Does User Experience Save/Make Money?

So, try as I might, being a new UX developer, I'm trying to find reputable data about reputable companies who saved/made [insert actual dollar figure], and how usability testing was responsible. I was actually told at work today that "there is no way you can prove that usability testing makes money." It's a personal challenge now. Smile

a point of comparison to determine usability improvements.

How could I deal with my ex-employer for not releasing the design work I\'d done?

I have been working for a company creating online software/application
for the past years. Recently I got laid off and they disabled my
connection to the company's server right away. Since I was a remote
employee, I wasn't able to get the design files I'd done for the
company. Therefore, I emailed them to ask for a copy for the purpose
of creating personal portfolio. They transferred my question among
different managers and ended up ignoring my request.

XSRF - cross-site request forgery (was: Keyurbsorathia wants to share Favorites with you)

(Maybe not the right list... but good to know)
It is actually a minor case of XSRF attack (cross-site request forgery).

The link above is a google search but it might have been transfer X
amount of money to Y. That's of course will work If your bank is
stupid enough (some are) to allow *significant and predictable*
action by HTTP request, and you're happen to be logged into your bank
account (in a different tab maybe?).

This attack is "statistic", but an attacker can send endless number
of emails.
