Tools for managing/displaying taxonomies?

Normally I'd just use OmniOutliner/Grapher to make a taxonomy for
personal use. Now I find myself wanting to share my
taxonomy-in-progress so that others can mark it up.

Does anyone have a favorite (and simple/cheap) tool for doing this sort
of thing that they would recommend? It doesn't have to be a particular
fancy poster, just something that I can scale up/down based on how big
the graph is.

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?

Wow, look at you all go...!

466 IxDA emails in my box, waiting for me over my vacation, last week.

I can't exactly recall, but I think I got about that many when I was off
for TWO weeks vacation in August.

Is anyone tracking our discussion list traffic? How are we doing, for
active participation?

Favorite article on design research


If you had to read 1 article on design research which one would it be?
Does anyone know of an article from Brenda Laurel?
I'm not interested in the standard stuff about Contextual design or
Goal-Directed Design stuff.

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.

Implementing I/A and web strategy when you don'thave control of the content

Hi Todd:

I've seen many projects like this one, and there are some good patterns I
bet I and others can share.

But first: the big thing you didn't include is what the goals are. You've
mentioned a series of constraints, but not the goals. A redesign can mean 50
different things. As long as everyone understands that making big
improvements will be more difficult with the constraints you've mentioned,
then you can still be set up to succeed. But if everyone is expecting the
world, and they don't recognize how challenging the landscape is, you are
set up to fail.
