Remote IxD work

I have worked on a few small, remote IxD projects (involving primarily
expert reviews, wireframes, task flow diagrams, etc - not user research),
and have discovered it can either be a pretty tricky process to maneuver or
a complete cake-walk.

I'm wondering what experiences others on this list have had. Are there
particular issues you've come across over and over, specific to remote
projects, or has it changed every time according to the client and the
client's process?

[PLUG]A new UX blog...just what the world needs!

Thanks to Whitney Hess, whose presentation on "Evangelizing Yourself"
motivated me to finally start a blog.

My first post is an editorial response to Jared Spool's panel at the
Ix09 conference, which asked where will we find the 10,000 new
interaction designers we need to meet the expected growth in our field.
Here's the link:


I would love to hear any feedback, whether as a comment on the site, a
message here, or a private e-mail.

This is a remarkably parochial and unprofessional view. Would you, as a usability professional, examine your own needs, conclude that a feature does not fit those needs, and then declare that there is "no justification" for that feature?

You have actual real users (of this list) in front of you giving actual real reasons this feature is useful to us.

criteria for HTML prototyping

Hi all,

I'm new to this list, so forgive any ignorance on my part.

I'm part of a team that's trying to make our design
processes more user-centered, and as part of that effort
I'm proposing that we start building HTML prototypes /
functional wireframes for certain types of projects.

We are a marketing company that builds every kind of thing
from interstitial ads to full-blown web-sites with lots of

Google suggest


Is this the Google version of the ms 'paperclip' or is it genuinely
predictive text?
Technically very interesting in an 'under the bonnet/hood etc' way. The
relevance is very useful.

And now a completely different take on design

Check out this WSJ interview with Bang & Olufsen freelance designer,
David Lewis.
Definitely different than what I would have expected.
