UIE Web App Summit - Monterey

So Day 3 of this event has started and I am a bit surprised that no
one has posted anything yet.

Anyone who was there/still there have any moving thoughts?

Comments - Best Ways To Encourage Them?

Hey There,

I wanted to get everyone's experience and ideas on the best way to encourage comments. We've recently moved to Disqus but have seen the number of comments from our users decrease.

If you have examples of sites that facilitate and encourage comments well, they would be greatly appreciated - whether it's a media site or not. Just looking to get inspired.

Or if you have or are using Disqus (and have some feedback on things that worked or better products), please let me know too.

Thank you in advance,

I have read with interest the thread on Exploring the Magic of Design
(http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=46102) and thought I'd start a

Switching through multiple "primary" phones for testing

Hi All,

I'm a User Experience Designer. While my primary phone is an iPhone 5, I'm curious to really understand the user behaviors consistent with some android devices (perhaps even extend to windows and blackberry as well). I've been able to test various apps on these devices through my company but I know to truly understand what the user goes through, I should adopt an adroid phone as my primary phone for a month and treat it as real users do.

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.

Telling Interactive Stories - At NYCUPA Event

I'm curious what everyone has to say about last night event at Bloomberg
with Andrew DeVigal. Was everyone aware of this stories on the The New
York Times?

Do you think newspapers readers understand how and what to click in
order to view and comprehend the stories as they are told?

I told my story here http://user-experience.iterating.net/
