UML and Developers

*Note - I am new to this forum. If you feel this topic is not appropriate
to post, just let me know. *

We have been tasked with documenting the requirements for our current legacy
software system, in sufficient detail that a vendor (preferably several
vendors) will be able to give reasonably accurate bids in response to our
Request for Proposals. The better job we do, the more and better (i.e.
lower) bids we will receive.

I'm mostly concerned with the functional requirements.

Referral needed: Visual designer

Hi all -

I'm casting my net out there for visual designer referrals for an
intranet redesign project. Here's a bit of background:

- It's a 3-year-old intranet for a national nonprofit of ~500 users
- We only have budget to redesign look & feel and some IxD/IA (mostly
home page and global search/navigation).

Nielsen on Social Media and Corporate Blogging

I came across this article featuring Jakob Nielsen and his opinions on
the value of blogs and social media (videos, etc.) on B2B websites:


On the one hand, I can understand how encountering unwanted content
when you're trying to get something done can be a barrier, but this
article (and Nielsen's most recent piece on blogging -

New Features for Clinical Research Website

Hi guys,

I am working as an Interaction Designer for a Clinical Research Website and
we are now ready to add some new features to it. While we are pretty happy
with the basic functionality that the website offers, we are looking to add
some social type of elements as well as media. I want to know what kinds of
methods people employ to gauge the features that could be added?

add to favorites vs save for later

Any thoughts or articles on "add to my favorites" (as an action from a
product page) vs "add to my wishlist" (which I think is the same thing?) vs
"save for later" (as an action on the shopping cart page, a la Amazon)? Any
good design patterns for favorites? How should one access one's favorites
list at a later time? Has anyone studied conversion rates on these features?

Re: [IxDA] Why Left Search Buttons Perform Faster Than Right

I come in piece with a twist of humor...

Innovation is key and nowhere have I read in this string anyone frowning on it. Actually just the opposite.

However.... When someone portrays an article as fact, refers to their own site for reference and starts an email off with "Research has shown....", its logical for readers simply ask, what research? Show us, inquiring minds want to know.

And if you have NONE, ZIPPO, ZERO... that by far exceeds tapping on the glass for a response. That's pretty much sticking your hand in the cage...OUCH!
