In my experience, having done primarily design work, but also some behavioral science research, g/ood/ design is just as analytic, empirical, and rigorous as "scientific" methods of problem-solving.

Documentation Version Numbers

I'm trying to establish a documentation numbering standard for my team,
and there is some initial resistance to the approach I've used for
years. I'm wondering what approach you all use, or what your opinions
are on the merits and drawbacks of these two approaches.

Approach A: Every revision of a document is given a new integer-value
version number. For instance, Site Map v6 is updated and becomes Site
Map v7.

Approach B: Every version of a document made during the "Define" phase
of a project is numbered 0.x.

Looking for any studies on iPad Adoption by seniors

There is certainly a big buzz these days about seniors using and loving iPads. Has anyone come across any studies or statistics that support the anecdotal buzz? If so, would you share? Thanks!

Thoughts on UXmap

A few months ago I was looking for a local design consultancy in Japan, and had trouble finding one. I thought it would have been great if design and UX-related information is organized geographically. I came up with UXmap.com and began providing local UX information about consultancies, labs, vendors, conferences, education, associations, events, and jobs. I can see how it supports needs of both design and UX people as well as their stakeholders. What do you think? Is there a need for this?

Re: Signal Orange

Elizabeth's example of the Vietnam bracelets is a much better
illustration of this concept. Here's the crucial detail that's obscured
in the Signal Orange project. The bracelets open a dialog between two
people. That's the interaction the bracelets facilitate.

"... the wearer could talk about the person [on the bracelet] to others."

Here's a related example of this kind of Interaction Design. The Spring
2004 issue of Design Issues has an article about Kate Wells and the
Siyazama Project in South Africa.
