JOB: NYC/(London): Sr Information Architect, global news analysis/publishing "biggie"

Talk about getting a high-brow name on the ol' resume---drop this name
during an intellectually snobby cocktail party and you'll be the beau/belle
of the ball. :) Very prestigious, internationally reknowned
company/publisher since the mid 1800's with a circulation of 3.7 million
that's known for its adherence to excellence, research, logic, and high
standards through and through.

Maximum permissible delay between user action and feedback from Television


I am working on television EPGs. I was wondering about the maximum permissible delay between a user action and the feedback from Television.

Eg: User presses ChannelUP button on the remote control. TV responds to the action by changing channel. What should be the maximum allowed delay between this for a good user experience?

Jakob Nielsen talks about 3 response times - http://www.nngroup.com/articles/response-times-3-important-limits/

I am not sure whether it is applicable for TV watching scenario too.

Information discovery in 3D environments: looking for compelling examples


I work with some folks who are absolutely fascinated with 3D virtual
environments such as Second Life. Most of the applications we work on
are in the realm of traditional information retrieval: search engines,
library card catalogs, etc.

Save vs Save and Close in a web app

I have just returned from a parental leave and have discovered that my team has implemented a 'Save, Submit, Ok, Close' button group on windows. The apparent logic behind the decision was that the Product Manager did not like that clicking 'Save' also closed the window. So currently, the 'Save' button saves the info and provides some text indicating such. 'Submit',  closes the window and changes the status of the form, 'Ok', saves & closes and 'Cancel' closes without saving.

Silverlight pattern library

This post is to request that M$ make a (public) pattern library for
Silverlight. And, to ask that if someone knows of one they can share it with

The problem so far: I'm researching Silverlight and the substantial part of
it seems to be buried in *applications that require install*. I do not have
admin rights in M$ Vista, so I cannot see the work, thus I cannot evaluate
it, thus I cannot share it, and it is not easy for my team to make the case
for working with it.

I remember years ago when I could simply go to the MSDN section for Common
Controls and share those proto-design patterns.
