Should iteraction designer produce code... (Form ally: Open Position: Sr. Interaction Designer @ MITRE)

Good point.

Alan Cooper suggests in Inmates that to be an interaction designer you need
to understand the mindsets of the user and programmers of the application
(or something very similar).

[Plug] How to be UX Team of One - November 12

[Apologies for cross-posting]

I wanted to get the word out about a virtual seminar that I'll be
hosting next week on a topic that's very near and dear to my heart:
how to be a user experience team of one.

This seminar is based on a presentation that I gave at the IA Summit
earlier this year, but it'll be a deeper exploration of the challenges
that small teams and lone UX practitioners face.

San Francisco UX Party: Express Yourself - June 22nd, 6-10pm @ 111 Minna

Hello fellow IxDA's,

Microsoft is holding a party at 111 Minna, focusing on bay area designers. We've asked 5 designer/developer teams from top design firms in the bay area to compete on a design problem and set of personas. Each team will have 10 minutes to present their solution to the judges and audience.

RE: Prototypes, process, and ID (RE:[interactionarchitects] Re: process ... the nextgeneration)

: "Data indicate that 60-80% of the cost of software
: development is rework--that is, fixing defects that
: are found during testing.* While software must still
: be tested, testing and rework costs would be reduced
: if better design and implementation practices were used"

Fixing defects that are found during testing... if there really was testing
then it's already a significant and important design practice. As John said,
the software industry is used to testing, it's part of the process.

research: music and memory

Marcos Weskamp and I are currently working on a project that links
music and memory, at Interaction Design Institute Ivrea. At this point
we are collecting data to populate the database that will be used for
the visualization.

In a form we have put online we ask you to mention a specific song that
you relate to a memory. Do you have a specific song that reminds you of
your first girlfriend; that cool wedding of your best friend; a summer
vacation? We are sure that you can find plenty examples! You can even
sketch out your memory, among other things!

Data on "back to top" links

Does anyone have any data on the effectiveness of "back to top" links?
Are they any better than just scrolling back up?

Best regards,

Design patterns for parametric comparisons

Hi Everyone,
Long time lurker, first time writing.

I'm currently working on a project that requires
sorting and comparison of multiple parameters
associated to each product served up in a search
results page and I would love to get some opinions
from this community.

In my particular industry, the standard display for
this type of information is to display all of the
results in a sortable table, giving the user ability
to sort each column.
