Re: [IxDA] Why is Drupal is a Good Choice for a Community Website?

Finding the right content management system is always a difficult challenge. None of them are perfect. Finding a decent open source CMS can be even more challenging because they're being produced voluntarily by people whose main enjoyment is programming, not user experience. I've been working with Plone for over a year now and I can't image Drupal being any worse. And since IxDA has essentially no budget, open source is the natural choice. So while Drupal may not be perfect, is there a better open source solution? I doubt it.

Looking for stuff to read on aesthetics

Hey there,

I was wondering if people knew of any good books or articles about
aesthetics in design that might be good to get.

What I'm interested in more specifically is if there is a sense of
aesthetics around interaction. How can we as designers mold, play, conjure,
or otherwise control that aesthetic and harness it more purposefully than we

OptimalSort vs UserZoom - How do they compare?

We are looking for an online card sorting tool and have recently had the opportunity to try UserZoom at my company. We found that UserZoom had many drawbacks that, given the cost, makes it less than ideal for our purposes.

Re: [IxDA] Depicting Your Personas

Though I love the fun family orientated use of the Simpsons, in certain industries, this use of character would be appalling when using it to present a type of persona due to a lack of needed sophistication or contrasting of the company's brand, say the client were to be Vogue. I do think an illustration that sat closer to realism would be more effective as a starting point in depicting a persona visually.

Architects and environmental designers often use silhouettes which are very typical and avoids possible stereotyping.
