NYT Magazine Article on Interruption Science

"A picture of 21st-century office work emerged that was, [Gloria
Mark, an HCI researcher] says, "far worse than I could ever have
imagined." Each employee spent only 11 minutes on any given project
before being interrupted and whisked off to do something else. What's
more, each 11-minute project was itself fragmented into even shorter
three-minute tasks, like answering e-mail messages, reading a Web
page or working on a spreadsheet. And each time a worker was
distracted from a task, it would take, on average, 25 minutes to
return to that task.

Designing for a TV screen

I'm doing some design research for a client who offer a Video On Demand service in the UK. Currently, the service is predominantley available in a desktop browser environment. Sensible, they are now starting to get the service on to televisions via the slew of devices able to do this (games console, internet ready TVs etc...).

I've been asked to provide a 'best practice' design guidelines document based on existing IxD models to give them a strong base to start their design work. With particular interst in:

More on Prototyping Tools...

At Teague, we use Flash or Director for just this sort of thing (prototyping
desktop applications and consumer electronics devices). One caveat, however,
is that we rarely create visual design elements within either Flash or
Director. Instead, we tend to draw things in Illustrator or Photoshop, and
then import the elements into the prototyping tool.

What's your job title?

Hi, I'm new to the forum but not new to usability!

I want to know what your jobs titles are so I can start to think what mine should be...

My role in my job has been evolving recently and I will now be in charge of making sure all our software is developed with 'User centred design' at its heart.
