Sports Illustrated HTML5 Prototype

Who watched the Day One Keynote of Google I/O this past Wednesday? As a developer very committed to effective UX/IxDA I'd love to hear the community's response to the Sport Illustrated HTML5 prototype premiered there.

Breadcrumb trail at the bottom of the browser window

Inspired by the recent Cuil discussion I've made a breadcrumb trail that's
always visible at the bottom of your browser window.
I'm testing it on an intranet where:

• users spend anywhere from five minutes to several hours every day

• there are thousands of pages in many folders, etc

• the built-in navigation scheme isn't always consistent, due to different
products/portals/systems being used

Lessons so far:

• with just one consistent navigation item at the bottom of the viewport,
it's easier to leave out all those top, left and right menus and concentrate

Fixed or rotating feedback icon?

Hi,
 
Has anyone conducted usability studies or knows about user preference for a fixed position rotating feedback icon (eg. [+] Feedback) versus a rotating and scrolling one which follows the user as they scroll up and down a page.
 
Thanks,

Design and Open Source Projects

Has anyone here contribtued to an open source project? One of my goals
for this year is to try and attract more participation in Mozilla
projects form members of the design communities (UX, HCI, IDX, IA,
Visual Design, I'm not choosy!)

As someone's who's only recently started working with OSS community
processes, tools and techniques, I know that a lot of the entry points
can be incredibly daunting, and it can be hard to determine where one
would *start* to contribute should one be inclined to do so.

Now that the conference has ended, I'm curious what learning or thoughts folks have taken away from it. As we begin to synthesize our exeriences, it's great to share them with the IxDA community.

  • What was the best talk you attended?
  • What themes did you see emerge, if any?
  • Find any insights that you can apply in your practice or day-to-day work?

functional designer?

I wrote a post on my blog recently about software design which proposed
calling front-end design "interaction design" and back-end design
"functional
design" --

Ironically, a few days later our CEO sent me an article from Zigzag
Marketing
addressed to product managers which talked about the importance of the
"functional
designer" to product development, only by "functional designer" they were

Designing Mystery: Mystery vs Magic - Anticipation vs Wow.

I have read with interest the thread on Exploring the Magic of Design
(http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=46102) and thought I'd start a
related thread on mystery by posting a link to a blog post...

http://digitalweek09.blogspot.com/2009/11/designing-mystery-anticipation.html

I'd be interested in responses to this post from other fields of
interaction design.

I have been running closed workshops on Designing Mystery since 2002
