Mindset and SmartSort

Does anyone know where I can find information concerning the apparent
discontinuation of Yahoo's Mindset and SmartSort features?

We've referenced them in the past concerning the use of sliders,
but SmartSort appears to have switched to radio buttons (http://
tinyurl.com/6fyypk) and Mindset (http://mindset.research.yahoo.com/)
appears to be down.

HCI courses in NYC?


I want to recommend to a friend of mine to take some HCI courses that
focuses on the basic principles of interface design, guidelines, heuristics
etc. Not one that is about methods or usability testing, but one that helps
her familiarize herself with design guidelines.

Difference b/w online & installed apps

I'm designing Interaction models, process flows and interfaces for an
application that can potentially be an online app or an installed one
(depending on capability, performance needs). From a design perspective,
should there be a difference between the two? There are of course inherent
interface elements in each type and technical limitations with a browser
based app (that are fast disappearing?).

Any guidelines/design patterns etc.. on when a downloadable format ( such as pdf/word/ppt) is appropriate compared to creating a webpage?

Hi everyone,

I would appreciate if anyone could point to me to any guidelines /
design patterns or some source on when a downloadable format ( such as
pdf / word /ppt) is a better option compared to creating a webpage.

For example, a website that talks about policies which are large
documents , it would be best if people are able to download the policy
and review it.

Or if its about a particular process, it would be best if they are
able to download the process and use the printed document to reference
while doing the process.

Any help you could provide will be much appreciated.

Thank You

A long page with scroll v/s Tabbed Page?

Tabbed vs long is not the question - you can have short pages that are
highly navigable without tab. So here's what I've seen:

- Page length depends on the content. Many users prefer things close to
above the fold, but nearly as many like to scroll, which is why major news
sites and other informational sites (such as the NYT) offer multiple page
and single page views in addition to print.

The biggest problems

Aside from hate on User Centered Design, and perhaps more seriously, the looming global economy crisis, I'm interesting in hearing what IxDAers think are the largest problems facing the IxD practice today. Anyone have any thoughts?
