regarding some thoughts about Bill Buxton's keynote on sketching,

and Bill left a meaty comment and referenced my previous post

about why everyone is not a designer...

Theories/principles in interface design

Other than Gestalt's principles what are some common design principles
that are based on human sensory perception (not just visual but also
memory, auditory, haptic etc.?)

Affinity diagrams with remote participants?

Hi Animesh,
I think I was not entirely clear: we want to do a LIVE session with remote participants, rather than an asynchronous remote session.
Ideally, we'd all work on the same diagram, viewing and modifying simultaneously. To discuss, we'd use a conference call.

It's not so straightforward to find a program that will support this live editing/viewing by multiple users.

*** Deadline for posters and demos: August 15, 2009 ***


Sonic Interaction Design (SID) is the discipline that investigates

interactive sound becomes increasingly important.

Questioning User Research (was Eyetrackingarticle on UXMatters)

Hi Dave,

One of the biggest issues I notice in the application and understanding of user research is the confusion on its quantitative and qualitative usage. There is a persistent perception among designers that they need to produce "numbers for the marketing guys." User research as part of design research tends to be qualitative. It uses methods of observation, immersion, scenarios, and engages participants in activities like card-sorting.

Error messages for edit-in-place forms

I'm working on an Ajax app that will have edit-in-place forms (a.k.a. inline
editing). Page has read-only data; parts of the data are editable. User
chooses to edit a part; that part turns into an editable form. When user
saves changes, the form converts back to read-only data (this happens
without a page reload).

The fields in the forms are required.
