Not necessarily. Predictive/suggesting/anticipatory UX still needs informed design decisions around what is to be suggested, when, and how. Otherwise the Clippy syndrome will quickly set in.

Bruno Latour on Design

Hi Everybody,

Since there was a little talk of bringing some more academic
discussion to the list I thought I'd share a great article by Bruno
Latour (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruno_Latour)

http://tinyurl.com/6qr477 (warning, PDF)

It is a keynote that he delivered at the Network of Design conference.
I haven't even finished reading it entirely, but already it's really
interesting stuff..

Also, in doing some background reading on Latour I found out a little
about his Actor-Network Theory

Inline styles and the people who hate them

Sorry about the sensationalist subject line. I couldn't resist.

For the past six months I've been building a massive, consumer Web
application. I took over the development from a guy who was keen on
standards-compliant XHTML (yay!) and keeping every style rule in an external
CSS document (kinda yay). This worked great up until I hit line 6000 of the
external CSS doc and Dreamweaver started choking a little each time I saved.

Then I began grouping pages of the site into sections and creating CSS docs
for each section.

Usability vs. Marketing (was 'R&D' vs. 'mainline')

I've thought about this some more, and this really comes down to the 'usability
/ marketability' issue. What have others' experiences been with this issue? My
company is almost exclusvely marketing-focused. Getting to end-users for
'real-world' usage info has not been easy. We rely almost entirely on our sales
organization as surrogates for them.

What arguments can I use to challenge this mindset?

The cultural impact on choosing a type face.

Designers often use different fonts to depict mood or theme for various subjects such as sports, business, comic, horror, fun etc. . . Do we have any best practices about choosing right fonts for conveying those moods? What are the cultural aspect of choosing a type face while designing for different country and culture? Is there any research to know - how people in different part of the world react seeing different fonts or type face?
