How do you make sure your design gets implementedright?

Martin -

My slightly controversial view is that this cannot be prevented. That is
why it is important that implementers understand about the need for
user-centred design.

Hi I just wanted to reach out to the IxDA community and see what sites

Re: Role of IxD in Open Source [was: good interfaceexamples for web basedapplications]

Hi Todd,

Open Source (I get really confused when you used OS b/c that means operating
system to me) is a mystery to me.

I mean how do we as IxD just go out and create a design on top of an open
source project? How do we do that w/o also having connection to the kernal
of the application we want to effect? How do our processes for research and
analysis fit into the process of an always moving target of many if not all
of the open source movement?

When I think about throwing my hat in the ring these are the areas that keep
me from jumping in.

harnessing technology's potential without being harnessed to technology

Hi All,

Long-time reader, first-time "post-er." Here's my question for all of you:

As interaction designers for the web, we need to at least *understand the capabilities* all of the latest and greatest technologies (e.g., ajax) so that we can use that knowledge to inform our designs and ensure that we are always designing to maximum technological potential.

How complete should wireframes and site maps be?

What do you do when-

You don't have time or budget to do a wireframe for every page listed
on the site map?

You're handed someone else's sitemap and wireframes only to find
there are things on the existing site that aren't accounted for in
the new layout?
