Survey: can engineers play the same role as designers

Do you believe that it is better to have separate
positions for UI design vs. UI engineering
(implementation) ? Suppose that the same person had
the time to collect all the user data, define the
design, create prototypes, conduct user studies and
then code the project.

I am currently UI engineer, and I used to be a UI
designer. I don't think the 2 can be melded.

Your opinions and why?

Advice for drive testing

Hello everyone,
I'm emailing this list asking for advice.  I have a client who makes cell phone-based navigation systems, and they want to do some drive testing -- that is, testing where I'd be in the car with the participant observing them as they navigate.  Has anyone on this list done this before?  If so, please let me pick your brain for some advice.

Resources on Ethnography and Digital Design?

Hi All,

Can you suggest reading materials that discuss application of ethnography to digital design? I have a lot of snippets and slideshares and deliverables, but am having trouble digging up more comprehensive resources on application to digital design for a friend.

Building experience through reverse engineering

I'm pretty green in interface design. I've read quite a lot but
often sit down to start a design and have a complete block. I realise
that there are a lot design patterns on the web, but it can be
difficult to really get a deep appreciation of them.

I'd like to build up some experience. Of course, the best way is to
'just do something'. However, students and newbies, such as myself,
perhaps don't have any real projects or sometimes long gap between

I was thinking about reverse engineering a couple of sites.

hover delay

We are trying to figure out the right amount of delay time for an
interaction that happens on hover delay over an image. Does anyone know how
long the hover delay is for the Netflix hover that appears on with film
info? In our particular situation, on hover an image immediately looks
selected and on hover delay it sort of pops out in this card thing with more
info in a unique way (hard to explain here). We're trying to figure out how
long to delay before it pops out. .5 second? 1 second?

Breadcrumb Trail Separator Terminolgoy

In the interest of a controlled vocabulary, what terms have you used, or do you prefer to use for the > that is placed between breadcrumb trail elements?

^ is a caret, but that isn't quite accurate.  "Greater-than sign" just sounds out of place.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
