Re: Design specs (Was: Design Methodology for GU I

Interesting views. My 2p's worth...

I find it useful and productive to produce ui design
specifications/conceptual models written with 'qualification' of design
decisions. This is often an annotation of a screen layout which makes it's
way into a use-case down the line. What this tends to do is assure the
developers (naturally more receptive to factual logic rather than heuristic
logic) that decisions haven't been made on a 'because I said so' basis and
is a good way of communicating work flow and look and feel decisions in
context to each-other.

Just Because You Can Innovate Doesn't Mean You Should

I'm tuning in a bit late here, so forgive me if someone also has made my

A couple of things about innovation. First, unlike invention, innovation
is planned and never happens by accident. This is an absolutely critical
distinction. Second, it always solves a problem; if it doesn't solve a
problem, it will invariably create one.

So, a new idea is not necessarily innovative. But as Jason points out,
it may have the potential for innovation if handled correctly.

IX and UX industry in Berlin

Hello all,

I just move to Berlin and I would like to start to explore what has to offer in IX and UX areas. I'm an HCI master student and I need to start to look for a place where to do an intership, and after that a Matser thesis with a company. Start ups could be as well an option.

So, I would like to hear some advices from someone of you who knows a little much better the Industry.

Or if someone know such a great Design firms or Companies in other European cities where could be worth it to do an internship, it will be great as well.
