Design For Mobile wiki has a job board

We're working hard to make the Design For Mobile site be a good
resource for all things mobile design, not just patterns. We started a
job board on the wiki, and I've been adding jobs as I find them. There
are 19 jobs listed right now.


Recruiting? This is a site targeted at folks in the business of mobile
user experience. And the job board is on the wiki.

How do you sell UX?

For those out there who work as freelancers or standalone UX agencies,
what does your sales process look like?

Is it primarily selling to the companies who own the web properties,
attempting to convince them of the need for better UX, or is it more
strategic partnerships with development shops?

Seems like the latter is the most stable approach, and a somewhat
easier sell (since dev shops or other 'full-service' web shops are
at least familiar with the UX world).

What are you experiences?

The practice and art of style guides

I have the opportunity and task to create a style guide for our existing product. Our company is set to double in size this year and as the only (so far) XD person scale is an issue. I've started research style guides but thought I'd ping the expertise of this group as well. So here are a few questions...

Training internal resources in IA


I am currently the only information architect at UVic and management doesn't
have long-term funding to hire further IA resources at this time. I've been
asked to "Ensure that a number of existing resources possess entry-level IA
skills through peer mentoring and education."

We haven't identified any resources with formal or informal IA training. The
resources we'd be training are primarily web developers and possibly a
linguist or library science professional.

I'd appreciate your thoughts on how to go about this.

Experience with Axure RP?

Is there anyone out there who has been using Axure for
creating wireframes, sitemaps and/or specs who's
interested in sharing their experience?

We've been looking at the tool for our own use (we mostly
use Visio and Fireworks now) and are wondering just how
much more efficient it is for creating documentation, and
how it's working for others.

So how is it?

In this research, we attempt to establish thresholds of detection for changes in a graphical user interface using adaptive tracking. For keyboard interactions, subjects did not notice delays of approximately 150 milliseconds. In contrast, for mouse interactions, subjects did not notice delays of up to 195 milliseconds.

International Jobs

I have been watching the list for jobs lately, but I have not seen any
come through for countries other than the United States. Are there not
as many openings outside of the US? What is the feeling of the job
market abroad, versus in the US?

I am planning to relocate to Sweden/Denmark next year. Can you offer any
recommendations of companies, job opportunities, job listing sites?

Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!

Talking at cross purposes of learnability vs facility

re: Should reducing number of clicks be of primary concern?

Until we have a better framework for this conversation we will continue to
talk at cross purposes. It's fascinating seeing how this process repeats
itself with such regularity, even with what must be extremely competent
thinkers. Each side entrenches more deeply into its mutually exclusive
extremes and mislabels the discussion for its own generalized worldview.

iPhone and Ajax: onpinch(), mac simulator, and Cringely

How the dev community is talking about multi-touch and iPhone gestures.
Just an FYI forward:

The iPhone Ajax buzz continues. Joe Hewitt (Firebug) writes about the
new multi-touch events that he hopes show up:

I've read lots of people, while arguing for why iPhone web apps are
lame, assert that web apps won't be able to take advantage of the
iPhone's multi-touch screen. This is nonsense.
