Navigation examples

Hi everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone has got any good examples of effective
navigation (hopefully using CSS/standards based design) for websites
that have up to three levels of navigation. The site I'm working on
won't be managed using a full-blown CMS . . we'll most likely use
Dreamweaver templates to build the static pages and Movable Type for
the dynamic parts. The client will have Contribute to edit static pages
and access to Movable Type of course.

UX Book Club - an update

Back around Thanksgiving I floated the idea (here and elsewhere) of forming
a book club in Sydney to meet and discuss books about user experience
(broadly speaking). The idea resonated with a lot of other people and very
quickly UX Book Clubs were being formed around the world, thanks in no small
part to the efforts of people like Andrew Boyd and Will Evans.

Agile & UCD (was Thoughts on AlanCooper'sKeynote)

Ugh, that last part was worded wrong:

You could do this pre-work in time it takes to do 2-3 development sprints. But, you have explored more designs then you ever would have been able to in over a dozen development sprints.

That should have sad:
You could do this pre-work in time it takes to do 2-3 development sprints. Without this prework, it would take you over a dozen development sprints to explore the same design space.

Technology is the 7th Kingdom of Life; interview with Kevin Kelly

Kevin Kelly discusses the perspective that Technology is an entity
that we are beginning to collaborate _with_ as well as through.


Historically, we've IxD'd in a human centric world, Kevin is pointing
to an era where technological systems are becomming so complex we cant
and wont ever be able to understand or control them, we can only
evolve them in a biological sense.

I believe this will lead us away from a UCD 'the user is right'
landscape to one were Designing must incorporate the needs of

Joel Spolsky claims the 'Program Manager' role does UI design... ????

This post and the reactions on the list demonstrate very clearly the need
for intense communication to related communities. I am working mostly in
enterprise environments in Europe, and there it is still quite normal that
UX work is been done by business analysts and developers without naming it
UX or anything similar.
