Kindle

Amazon has released the Kindle, their electronic book device. This is
a very interesting product. My initial reactions:

It's the right size/weight. I didn't like the industrial design of it
at first (too antiseptic?), but it's growing on me.

NH UPA June Meeting: Speed Networking & Topic Discussions - Wednesday June 25th, 6:00 PM

NH UPA is trying a new and fun meeting format for June. We're calling
the meeting format NH UPA Speed Networking - similar to speed dating,
but obviously with a different goal in mind!

All those attending the meeting will have the chance to speak with
others in a one-on-one or small group format for a short period of
time before rotating to meet with others. This will be more than just
small talk, though. After a quick introduction, the discussion will
focus on specific topics of interest relating to usability and design.

Wireframes: Illustrator/Indesign question…

Hi Meikel,

I'm not sure the InDesign+Illustrator is the best choice for your
wireframe documentation.

If you're using a PC, you should take a look at Axure -
http://www.axure.com. I have some friends who have been using it and
they seem very happy with it. I've never used it, as I haven't done
wireframes for a long time, and also because there is still no Mac
version of this software...so, I've never even tried it...But I have
close friends using it and loving it, many of them with an
"Illustrator background".

All postal service apps look and do the same (No major difference)

Hello,

a customer (major postal service) wants to develop apps for their major B2B-, minor B2B- and B2C customers.

These applications (both online and mobile) should help its users with the tracking of packages etc but also provide a user experience that may enable them to be the leading postal service.

buy-in, consensus,etc. (was RE: Powerpoint vs. "regular" slides)

Dave Heller wrote:

> "buy-in" is what I'm trying to achieve, not consensus

Excellent point. When I say "consensus", this is really what I mean.
I guess I'm accustomed to communicating with stakeholders, where
one facilitates buy-in by calling it "achieving consensus". :^)

I'm in no way in favor of design by committee, but am in favor of
bringing stakeholders into alignment with design decisions, via
whatever rhetorical means work best.
