There are other examples equally puzzling. Cell phones can't be tested where
you would use them. Reception is a real issue for buyers, but only
testimonials from friends in your area will likely sway a purchase decision.

You're obviously an expert consumer. Many people do not go to the effort of
test driving rentals, as you say even if they could find one local to a
rental company.

Issue tracking tool

Hello. I apologize as this is may be more of a project management

We are near the beginning of an interface design project with an Asian
based client. All of the client representatives; designers, developers,
marketing, you name it is based in Asia. Given cuts in travel budget
actual face time will be minimal. We recognize that time and language
differences will make communication and issue/ question tracking a

So, I am looking for a online issue/question tracking tool. Similar to
bugtracking, but for open interaction design questions/ discussions.

Greetings -

I'm on a quest for competitive/best practice research on making physical

RE: Usabililty In The Home

Wow! Thanks everyone! I was also able to find a lot of references to
past research, especially related to designing for people with
disabilities. (...and I've added Kitchen Stories to my Netflix queue)

I think I may have misrepresented myself a little in my initial post.
What I really want to know is if their are any professionals on this
list or that any of you know, that do this sort of consulting? I would
expect Interaction Designers to work with contractors, builders and
architects to design more useful home environments.

interested in usable kitchens. I have yet to encounter one. I seem to
find a lot of work surrounding 2 dimensional interaction...what about 3
dimensional interaction with the environment? There is a lot of support
for office workspace ergonomics but what about domestic workspace

Re: Agile User-Centered Design

First let may say that this whole discussion sparked by the Beck/Cooper
debate has been *really* fascinating.

What I thought was ironic about the discussion was that in some ways, Kent
came off more as thinking like a designer than Cooper did. Specifically,
central to XP is that it's an iterative process. This is a large part of
what I learned in Architecture school; develop a design by evolving it in
iterative passes.
