Question about full 1024 width of SmashingMagazine web site

Anyone have any thoughts on Smashing's expanded 1024 layout for higher res monitors?

Noticed they collapse to 990 at 1024, but go to the full 1024 as you expand out.

Who is making this move now? What's the standard or best practice? Client is looking for inspiration on HuffPo and other newsy sites. Sees the 960 grid, but wants to ascertain what the current thinking is on expanding out to 1024.


Best regards,

Best UI you ever used

Hi everyone,

today I happened to find a thread on UXExchange titled "The best UI you have ever used...?"

While the thread isn't as insightful as I hoped, I thought to throw that question at you guys. Guess we agree that this is mostly about sentiment and not quite measurable :-)

Since we want to maybe learn something, it would be nice to submit some rationale, too. And to further narrow it down, please stick to web-based UIs.

ID contract opp at WaveMarket

hello Al, my name in Nicole Maron, and I'm the new Sr. Interface and Product
Designer at Wavemarket. Inc. in Emeryville, CA. I've been lurking on this list
for a few weeks and have really been enjoying the discussions. As soon as I
have a non-work- or holdiay-related moment I'll be happy to jump in.

In the meantime, we are in need of a jr- to mid-level interaction designer for a
quick 1 month contract in Jan. We'd like to talk to someone ASAP. This would be
a good opp for someone who is relatively fresh out of school, or making the
move into UE from another discipline.

Interviewing people who interviewed you in the past

Hi all,

Has anyone had the pleasure of interviewing someone who interviewed you in the past?
Maybe you didn't get the job, maybe they thought you didn't qualify, or too much/too little experience?
I must say...very interesting turn of events can occur in life can't they?. True?

As I have recognized over the years.
"The design community is a connected one. Don't burn bridges and always be respectful. Things do change"

Just wanted to hear some of your personal experiences and how you handled it.

Re: intent-driven search

Hi Ben,

Isn't what you're talking about a "recommender system"?

This category of applications holds great promise for asynchronous social collaboration about the sorts of things you're talking about.

I've had the opportunity to hear Joseph Konstan of the University of Minnesota & CHI talk about his adventures in this market segment, but I haven't yet read his book, "Word of Mouse."

There's a lot of programming, yes, and there also needs to be a substantial amount of data, yours and others'.
