Greetings Humans-
Just thought I'd announce myself to the list and make sure posting works
in the meantime...

I don't have any UI friends to bounce questions and ideas off of-
they're all programmers. So here I am...

Question 1-
If a user doesn’t notice a missing feature, is it really missing?

the big persona > site personas and the dialogue process

To me, the single biggest risk is surely: restricting your choices by
designing within your Big User's boundaries.

If you design for her, as an individual, do you risk making decisions
based on her existing practices, preferences, prejudices and taste,
instead of the glorious What Could Be? Personas let us make design
decisions based on real facts, while at the same time thinking beyond
discrete instances.

Sr. Web/Data Analyst w/ PBwiki; a fun, thriving startup

What does PBwiki do?

Wikis are collaborative websites that lots of people can edit (Wikipedia is
an example of a wiki-as-encyclopedia). You might use a wiki to plan a
project or create an online classroom. Instead of sending 50 emails to
coordinate something, you put files and pages in one secure place and let
your team collaborate online. Try it out: You can create a PBwiki as easily
as a peanut butter sandwich at PBwiki.com.

Independent Contractor Hourly Rates and Startups

I am in the process of negotiating a pay rate for a independent
contractor position with a startup as an interaction designer. I am
wondering what are the current pay rates for independent contractors
for startups in the Bay Area? I have talked to some colleagues at
larger technology companies, but I was wondering if I would use the
industry standard and agree to some type of deferred payment plan for
a portion of my pay?

IxDA project: contributing Design to a real service

IxDA should be diving into the Design game by contributing to and
evolving a real service. A project that:
1) that needs design help,
2) is open source so the world at large can benefit and contribute,
3) by participating and evolving the design, promotes IxDA and Design
in general,
4) gets us excited.

Let's work on something REAL... a service that begs for great design
and doesn't have it.

Why not attack Dojo or Blueprint or a GUI installer for JBOSS or
dramatically improving the UI on SugarCRM?

Graduate Project

Hi Guys,

First of all, I think I made mistake for previous email, I send a blank email accidentally due to misunderstanding "new" and "send" button.

Now I am going to explain my problem:
I am doing Master of Art in Interaction Design in Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht, The Netherlands. I need to do graduation project next year, starts January. Since I consider (and read) that in our field, we are lacking of good tools, so I am planning to make concept (and if possible) build tools that helps interaction designer to design, prototyping and analyzing his/her design.

Websites that remember you

I've hunted through Pattern Tap and Konigi and am struggling to find
interface examples when websites 'remember' you.

We're looking at developing a tiered remembrance:

1. Unknown - the site knows nothing about you, you see the default
2. Remembered - you've been to the site before, but you're not registered or
logged-in, we just know what you've looked at.
3. Known - you're logged-in and we know lots about you and your history with

Can anyone think of examples that demonstrate tier 2?

IxDA Local group Twitter accounts ( Board Retreat discussion)

As it seems that most of the local groups also have a twitter account, I'd
be nice to see a link to those twitter accounts for follow under the
www.ixda.org's /local section.
