Social Interaction Design, Twitter, Status Updates, and designing talk


Apologies first off for what might appear a shameless act of blog
promotIon. I'm doing an in-depth look at the challenges for social
interaction designers in talk tools, specifically short-form messaging
apps like twitter, and practices like status updating. I'm fascinated
by them, and I think they clearly represent an important direction
forward for social media. But designing for talk is not easy.

Nice article on the design of the Tivo remote controlin tomorrow's Times

When is someone going to realize that people watch TV w/ dimmed or no lights
on? How often I've been watching a DVD or something off the DVR and I get a
call and I can't find the stupid PAUSE button. Would it kill them to make a
remote that is backlit like a phone touch pad?

Otherwise, I agree w/ Nielly about the FAV button.
What I wanted for a FAV button was something that limited my GUIDE, not
something that went up (you can't go backwards) a shortened chain. Why is
that? Well Ok, I love TV, right? My FAV list turns out to have hmmm?

Giving proper credit for design ideas

I'm new to user experience design. I do a lot of research. When presenting a formal design analysis, what is the best practice for incorporating ideas from other designers as suggestions? Should I include a written reference to sources?

I didn't realise I had multiple subscriptions either. Perhaps those who don't realise they've been added to the jobs list could see a different footer in job posts.
