REMINDER: [EVENT] IxDA NYC - Thurs, August 13 - Prototyping for UX Practitioners

One last reminder for Thursday's event. If you haven't gotten a chance
to sign up, you'll want to do so soon. Look forward to seeing everyone

Ever had a moment when you’re presenting your detailed design work and
you get an unenthusiastic "Is that it?" from your audience?

This can sometimes happen when a project has been in design
development without conceptual feedback or consensus-building. We
often move forward rapidly with our detailed design work due to time

Sketch-recognition turns doodles into websites

A software tool for tablet computers can transform sketched web pages into
real ones and hand-drawn code into real programs.

The tool, known as InkKit, was created to provide a smooth transition
between early sketches and more polished designs. It lets designers sketch a
webpage, for example, on a tablet computer using a stylus.

Streamlined sign up flow

Does anyone have any examples of articles discussing the cons of having a
sign-up process before using an application that requires personal
information (i.e. your address). I remember reading articles a while back on
how asking for personal info when someone just wants to try out your app is
a huge turn off to users (for obvious reasons) and you really want to reduce
all barriers to entry.

Have you written or read something like this recently?

Design with Intent - How designers can influence behavior

Stumbled across this great article talks about new approaches to UX
design that allows designers not only to understand users' tasks and
behaviour and make products that comply with them but also to change
these behaviours. Three practices described — Persuasion Design,
Catalyst Design and Performance Design
