iRise vs. Axure - Community response - Patent-free thread

First, my apologies to Andrei and anyone else who may be affected by having
links to patents in their email. I had NO idea about the impact.
In response to Josh Seiden who, speaking for the IxDA board, encouraged us
to come up with a plan of action, I'd like to start this new thread. To
anyone taking part in the discussion, please refrain from a discussion of
any patents, posting snippets thereof, or links to patent sites. Thanks!

The purpose of this thread is to discuss not the patent itself or whether
Axure infringed or not, but to discuss our response to this lawsuit as a
community.

It sucks to be a Jr. Interaction Designer/Jr. Usability Specialist/ Jr. User Experience Designer

For those graduating in 2008 (When the crisis started), 2009 (when the crisis was at the peek) and 2010 (when almost every 4th is unemployed in Malmö and Copenhagen Area), it really sucked/sucks to be a user centered designer. NO FREAKING JOBS! I was lucky enough to get hired as a technical writer with emphasis on usability....this was my first career job and I learned alot. Its just sad that it lasted for 13 months only.... My employer had to let 35 employees go. I was one of them.

Searching for UX principles for designing an Arabic language website

Hi,
I'm sat here in Doha [Qatar] in the middle of a week of user-testing an English/Arabic travel website. One concern for our design approach is to not just "flip the text RTL" for the Arabic translation. We'd really like to actually do something meaningful for the Arabic version [yes, its early in the project and our hopes flourish].

Primarily I'm trying to find UX principles for designing an Arabic language website. From both Western and Arabic-based UX practitioners. Articles, thoughts and examples on designing Arabic language websites.

Open source wireframe software

Hi All,

Any recommendations for an open source wireframe tool? Something that is
similar to Axure - the license is too expensive for me.

Thanks,
Oliver

Req: Reference on readability of centered vs left-justified text

Does anyone have a reference showing that left-justified text is more
readable than centered text?

Something like:
(a) an academic study or paper
(b) a textbook
(c) a well-known graphic design book

I've been googling for a while and have found many pages that agree
with me, but none citing sources. :/
