Re: [IxDA] High-End Users in a Low-End Web.

I think you're seeing the combination of two factors, of which Jared has correctly identified one. Try this on for size:

"Most people in the world (and probably most people who use the Web) don't search but if they do, they use Google"

"Most people in the world don't use social network sites, but if they do they use Facebook." (of course these are exaggerations, but play along for a minute please)

What has happened is that a few monopolist-like(*) companies (google, apple, facebook, amazon, ebay) have dominated their particular segment of the Web space.

Affinity diagrams with remote participants?

Hi Animesh,
I think I was not entirely clear: we want to do a LIVE session with remote participants, rather than an asynchronous remote session.
Ideally, we'd all work on the same diagram, viewing and modifying simultaneously. To discuss, we'd use a conference call.

It's not so straightforward to find a program that will support this live editing/viewing by multiple users.

RealWorld HF/Design Question

Car blinker light remains on after you shut engine off and leave car.
This was designed by BMW Mini.

Upon returning to my car from a short errand, I notice my right brake
light and turn signals were on (solid light, not blinking). No other
lights were on in or around the car. I got in the car and hit the
brakes to potentially unlock the lights; I thought it could have been a
software error. The lights stayed on. I turned the car engine on and
off: no change, lights still on.

suggestions for "best in class" B2B websites?

Hi all,

Does anyone have any B2B websites that they'd hold up as good examples?
I'm doing a competitive review and none of my client's direct
competitors have remarkable websites.

I'm looking for:

- A well-done B2B site

- The company preferably sells a service rather than a physical product

- Bonus if the company provides some selling tools right on the website
rather than asking the customer just to call in for a quote

- Bonus if the company has a self-service website for customers (DOUBLE
bonus if I can become a customer so as to check it out!)

We're going to do a logistic

design and lean startup methodology

hi all,

has anyone out there worked as a designer on a team that follows a lean startup methodology? any thoughts on how design process can mesh into it? (can it?) i'm just starting to work with such a team, and i'm trying to get my bearings, have been reading through a bunch of lean startup stuff. any thoughts from other designers, on the topic (rants, raves, anything really) would be welcome.
