"The tiny things matter" - a UX story

We all have these stories, I suspect. A friend wrote this up and I'm
passing it along, with his permission, anonymized.

He was buying a new car - fairly high end, significant purchase:

"The choice came down to [Car A], which is an updated version of my
old car, or the [Car B]. I love love loved the feel of spaciousness in
[Car B], I could have used the cargo space, and the user interface
with the nav/audio screen is stunning.

Book announcement: Intersection


this is a plug for my new book about strategic design in the enterprise, which just got published by Morgan Kaufmann:

    INTERSECTION: How Enterprise Design Bridges the Gap
    Between Business, Technology and People.

My topic touches quite a number of topics and disciplines, so please excuse the cross-posting.

ADMIN: RE: Proposal for DC chapter for Interaction Designers

> I am proposing to folks on this forum to initiate a local chapter in
> DC Metro area.

Just to clarify, there are no formal local chapters of IxDG at this point.
There have only been a few and inconsistent at that local face to face
gatherings. The Steering Committee of the IxDG are still in the process of
formalizing both our centralized and decentralized organization. Until such
time as that happens, we do not want to use the term "chapter" as there is a
level of formality we are not prepared to support or engage with.

Speaking of Data Visualization

For those so inclined, I recently (last week) got a copy of "Data Flow:
Visualizing Information in Graphic Design" which is all about data
visualization in graphic design - but since many here at one point or
another are asked to do something related to visualizing complex data sets -
you may find some of examples are innovative and effective ways of
communicating and could be useful in your work.

Hi all,

Looking for examples of good ways to include ways to display different types of media. I'm thinking of a repository that shows podcasts, video, downloadable documents, and perhaps other media types.

Digital patina

Had a look at this Flickr set today:
http://www.flickr.com/groups/desire_paths [*]
It shows examples of when humans have eschewed the predefined path to take a
shortcut instead. Really nice visualisation of the path of least resistance.

How have you observed this happening online?
