up/down; forward/back; right/left

Hi gang,

I'm working on a project where we are trying to figure out in a horizontal
layout for physical buttons that are used for navigating a list of options
(primarily) that are layed out vertically how would you layout these

So you have a button on the left and another one on the right.
while button goes up the list and which button goes down?

Here are some cursory thoughts.
#1 Forward = add = up
Based on that a "volume control" seems to be the most used example and

Who is taking over the UX world? (notes from STC conference)

This week, I attended the 52nd STC (Society for Technical
Communication) conference. It's a major event with close to 1,000 of
attendees and up to 25 sessions running in parallel (multiple by 3
days by 3-4 session slots per day). In other words, it's big, well

What totally surprised me is that both opening and closing keynote
speakers chose absolutely the same theme: User Experience Design. I am
not that familiar with the STC world, but the surprising choice didn't
seem to be coincidental.

Hello. I apologize as this is may be more of a project management

We are near the beginning of an interface design project with an Asian
based client. All of the client representatives; designers, developers,
marketing, you name it is based in Asia. Given cuts in travel budget
actual face time will be minimal. We recognize that time and language
differences will make communication and issue/ question tracking a

So, I am looking for a online issue/question tracking tool. Similar to
bugtracking, but for open interaction design questions/ discussions.

Great article earlier this week on GAP's new websites in the NY times
(September 12, Bob Tedeschi). If you dont have access to times online
contetn go visit the new GAP.com website anyway. Curious to see what people
think. Pretty sure its an AJAX implementation. Very Nice.

Getting into interaction design

Hi all,

A couple of questions to put to the readers here.

I have a degree in psych and a PhD in HCI both from good universities
and want to get a steady position in this field. I've done industrial
work (human factors multi-company collaboration into commercial
aircraft cockpit design - assessment and some design) and commercial
work (workflow apps both desktop & web-based, scientific desktop app,
oil exploration app - design, assessment, development) and educational
(commercial VLE - assessment).
