Design For Mobile conference, April 20-22, Early Bird ends March 7

In late 2007, we got tired of all the conferences focusing on mobile
user experience being in Europe. Usually London. Since more and more
there's really great mobile design work going on in North America, we
decided to make a new conference. And in 2008 it was terrific.

The 2009 conference is approaching, with topics ranging from academic
to theoretical to incredibly practical, from user research to

Dynamics of Effective Product Development Teams

Hi all,

I'm doing some research and wanted to get your thoughts on what
constitutes an effective team. Say you're in a rather large corporate
environment where there are a lot of moving parts, projects, initiatives
all happening at the same time, say somewhere like Google but more
content driven than technology. They've figured out how to push out
quality products at breath-taking speed. How can this be done? What
are the internal dynamics that make this kind of rapid production
possible? Are there small teams that take ownership of one project? Is
it just one big assembly line?

Some problems with Wikipedia's iD

I thought this would be a good forum to bring up some interaction
design problems with Wikipedia.

These are some of the problems I found as an active contributor who
also happens to be an interaction designer.

1. Wikipedia shows only the last edit of an article in the watch list.
This leaves the writer no clue of the edits that took place from
his/her base lined version. (Base lined version will generally be the
user's last edit on the article.).

You decide - Screen Size

Sorry for bringing up a pesky off-topic issue again, but...

These screen size discussions ignore mobile devices.
