New guy in corner over there smells funny... Too much cologne, probably.

Greetings Humans-

in the meantime...

I don't have any UI friends to bounce questions and ideas off of-
they're all programmers. So here I am...

Question 1-
If a user doesn’t notice a missing feature, is it really missing?

Incredibly Ticked Off

Tonight I responded to a discussion board post seeking advice on getting a job in UX. In context, it was nice and normal and addressed the concerns in the original post. However, for some reason, my post went to an email list completely without context. Shortly after, I received an email from a CEO believing I was directing my response to her, which would have been completely inappropriate, and out of context - downright rude.

Sr. Web/Data Analyst w/ PBwiki; a fun, thriving startup

What does PBwiki do?

Wikis are collaborative websites that lots of people can edit (Wikipedia is
an example of a wiki-as-encyclopedia). You might use a wiki to plan a
project or create an online classroom. Instead of sending 50 emails to
coordinate something, you put files and pages in one secure place and let
your team collaborate online. Try it out: You can create a PBwiki as easily
as a peanut butter sandwich at PBwiki.com.

A pipe dream indeed!

It's perfect that this thread's subject is about seeking the "holy grail" of wireframing: Any time you find yourself calling something you desire a holy grail, it might be time to start asking yourself why you desire something that you know does not exist!

Part of being a good designer is being able to use little else besides your imagination to envision how a design or an interaction might work, essentially

Mint (ok now Intuit) CEO gets it

Who convinced and taught this left-brain oriented engineer/CEO that
the user experience mattered? Please have them write a book how; many
of us go through this painful experience every day.

using a blog to drive ecommerce (and/or customer engagement)

Hi all,

Any examples or stories about companies using a blog to drive sales of
products on the web? For example, Design Within Reach delivers emails
on request that include products and more - events, background
stories, etc., but they don't put this type of content into a blog
(that I know of).

Amazon.com now has a small link to a daily blog on the home page,
which, as it is from amazon.com, contains posts about a wide variety
of topics and products. This blog is integrated with the site. Any one
know if it helps drive sales?
