I am planning of creating a free software in upcoming months. I also wants to monetize my advertise my software by different forms of advertisements. These are:

A) PPC advertisement on web site: This will be much like Google Adsense for websites

B) PPC advertisement on software downloader : This will be much like Cnet spotinstall and one will display one or two ads during the software download.

C) Advertising through software module: This will be much like OpenCandy.

UX Landscape--Where do I find the Best Designers

Hi All,

Hope all is well.  I'm Google's lead UX recruiter in North America, and I'm building the "UX Landscape" for our recruiting efforts.  I'm basically making a map of the best design schools, design firms, companies with strong design departments, and reputable design organizations/forums (besides IXDA : D ) in the nation.  

In your professional opinion, which schools shall I add to the map?  Some that come to mind are Carnegie, Pratt, and RSDI.  Any other suggestions?  How about reputable design firms?  Forums?

CLF and User Perceptions


I am curious to know if anyone has conducted research to explore issues
around the use of Common Look and Feel (CLF) design templates in the

In particular, I am wondering if any work has been done to consider the
effect a CLF has on the user’s perception of how an organization’s
departments/units are inter-related, and to what extent their perception
of the connectedness on the web translates to their understanding of how
the departments/units are actually connected in terms of organizational
infrastructure in reality.

As an example, several large univer

I despise extraneous frippery, but...

HEMA is a Dutch department store. The first store opened onNovember 4, 1926,
in Amsterdam. Now there are 150 stores all over the Netherlands. HEMA also
has stores in Belgium, Luxemburg, and Germany. In June of this year, HEMA
was sold to British investment company Lion Capital.
Take a look at HEMA's product page (http://producten.hema.nl/). You can't
order anything and it's in Dutch but just wait a couple of seconds and watch
what happens...

PS: Even better if ya spraak a hel klein beetje Nederlandse

Bringing your attention to something that impacts all of design (education)! Opinions, thoughts?

Georgia Tech is currently planning to eliminate the undergraduate
degrees in industrial design, building construction & architecture in
favor of a generic BS in Design. If implemented, the change will
likely impact all design education as schools, looking for ways to
cut costs, follow suit.

Several design educators & professionals from across the US & Asia
have voiced extreme concern and endorsed the cause.
