Any thoughts on placement of company contact information?

Over the past few years, I¹ve been imploring smaller companies who have
brochure-ware sites or have a limited product offering to put their contact
information (address, tel, email, fax) and if need by, their support
telephone and email on the homepage. Usually, in the header or footer
depending on the overall site design.

Welie.com and Design Patterns


A recent Google search of mine returned the site Welie.com as one of the
first hits. I've never seen this site before and couldn't find anything
about it in the IxDA archives. Since the site is about patterns in
design interaction, I was wondering if any of you have used the site and
what you thought of it? It appears to be published by a single
individual, but he does seem to have some decent credentials.

and it seems that the local talent is stuck in the land of mana.

Professional Organization Memberships

So I'm new to the professional world, and I've been asked to figure out what
membership I want (ala ACM, AIGA, etc).

I'm not really sure what's best to join, so I was wondering what you all
would recommend?

For background - I studied Psychology and HCI, and I'm working in
Information Design (combo design work and HCI work).

Do Engineers Understand UX documents? (was

I read Todd Warfel's post and think this is a great use of usability
testing. I actively ask for feedback on wire frames from our developers but,
as you might exepct, never get any. They are too busy writing the next lines
of code.

In lieu of that, I've adjusted my documents to address any omissions or
misunderstandings I've seen. These tend to be visual issues, where the final
page doesn't match the cognitive intent. But sometimes things I expect to be
elementary are not understood sufficiently, I don;t get feedback, and the
final result just doesn;t work.
