Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] Simplicity is Not Overrated, Just Misunderstood

Hi Richard,

I was simply wishing to point out that buying in general is a situation where I think it should be reasonable to question whether the customer has sufficient information to make an informed decision. I would think it fair to assume that consumer electronics as well as as software, whether in web or not, are very difficult to judge without special interest to do so or previous exposure to them and their alternatives.

What comes to needs, if we explain everything by saying it satisfies some need, yes, we only buy things we need.

Wordsmithing : Can't we all just get along?

The Nipple: Innate or Intuitive?

Hmmm... Could we agree that the two terms are very close in meaning?

The Latin root of "innate" indicates that "you're born with it" and that it

The Latin root of "intuition" indicates that "you look at it and know it";

Multicurrency basket scenario

Has anyone had any experience with a shopping experience that includes
purchasing items using different currencies in the same basket? We have a
situation where we may be constrained by the business to sell products this
way. It is a heavily compromised user experience and we are doing all we can
to fix things behind the scenes, but exploring options if we do need to
handle it as is.

Do you use location-based applications?

I'm a Ph.D. student at Carnegie Mellon University studying people's
current usage of location-based applications. If you're interested
in participating in an interview, please read on, or click the link
at the bottom.

We’re conducting research to understand why you use these
applications, how you use them, what you expected from them, and how
you think they could be better. We’d like you to tell us all about
your experience with these applications, and to share any stories,
ideas, or concerns that you have from using them.

means for gathering feedback

I'm looking various ways by which other interaction designers gather
feedback from stakeholders during the design and development process.
What I'm looking for are some effective ways by which feedback can be
elicited and managed internally and externally. At the end of the day
is red pen on print outs the best solution or do software based
solutions like Acrobat's feedback tools work better in the long run?
I haven't seen many other options out there for my stakeholders to
associate comments directly to parts of of the page, any suggestions?

Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] Coming soon: IxDA's new job board, powered by Coroflot

I've never done anything to subscribe to the jobs board, and yet I get 7 job postings per day, it seems like.

So let's look at this rationally. The organization needs money. There are several ways it can get it:

  1. Charge for membership and lock the mailing list.
