New York Times Annual Design Issue

To: various lists and friends (sorry if you get this twice)

Yesterday's New York Times Magazine was the Annual Design Issue. See it
online, or at your public library. http://www.nytimes.com/pages/magazine/
(Requires free registration, link is probably only good until next Sunday's
magazine comes out.)

While it wasn't about UI design or the Web, I enjoyed reading it more than
most design magazines I read.

researching researchers

Hello folks,

I've been targeting researchers for the development of an online cooperative tool lately, and discovered how hard it is to find informations on researchers as users.

It seems like "the sacred world of science and research" is out of any schema, any sort of question, anything...

Do anyone of you have any info about researcher as web tools users?

Thank you,

Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] Hotel Home Page Sneak peek

Hey Iaax - How's it going man? I have to agree with abhishekbhor. I think the old version has more personality and has a "signature look" which is important for hotel branding, while the new one is much more usable, more corporate and ultimately a little boring. I would stick with the new layout but add some spice, give the background a pattern, make more use of color, give people something to remember.

And if you want my full opinion you've got my number.

Best, Kim

The American People / Politicians = The Users / Developers (?)

Watching a YouTube presidential campaign clip the other day, the candidate
kept saying "The American People this" and "The American People that".

The way it sort of trilled off the tongue reminded me much of developers
saying "The Users this" and "The Users that".

We've all heard of or employed various ways to work the design past "The
Users" when creating software: user research, personas, inviting a couple
representative users onto the design team, etc.

You don't learn how to draw b/c you are going to draw your web sites. You learn how to draw, you learn color theory, you learn grid systems, you learn semiotics so you can be a better designer.

CRM system for a UX team?

Thanks to everyone who responded to my earlier question. Here's another one.

Has anyone had experience with using a CRM system (preferably a free
or low-cost one) to manage customer/user contacts within a UX team?

My team currently uses an Excel spreadsheet stored in a shared
repository. Keeping it up to date is a painful experience. I'm
thinking that there must be a better way.
