Re: en français -A problem?

If there is a critical mass of people who speak French, or German, or
Klingon, or whatever, then clearly the group should look into forming
language-specific lists. But in the meantime, I for one certainly
don't see any harm in people posting non-English messages to the main
mostly-English list. I do think that people who want to do that should
probably indicate in the subject that the post is not in English, as
the recent posters in French have in fact done.

en français -A problem?

RE: "start up a french-only discussion somewhere else" (see message received down below)

I understand what you mean but...

1) the web site here: (which makes THIS particular address important) gathers all the people that agrees on a single term (interaction designer). And I'm interested in exchanging with those professionals.

2) This web site also proposes to define and emplement the meaning and definition of the profession by the help of all.

Personas, scenarios, and breadth vs. depth thinking in design ide ation


That's an interesting and useful way of characterizing the
design process.

The problem with brainstorming alone is that it leaves
you with many creative ideas, but not necessarily a
direction or organizing principle to prioritize or
refine them.

Personas, together with scenarios (in the earlier persona
discussion, nobody mentioned these in the same breath; the
former without the latter is of fairly limited use), can help
to curtail the breadth first thinking to a "relevant"
decision space, i.e., exploring a solution set that would
be acceptable to the target personas.

No mouse, no touchscreen, high pressure!

Hi there,

I'm looking for resources, guidelines, books etc that could
help with my current ID challenge. Here are the parameters...

* High pressure "factory floor" style environment

* Keyboard only terminals running Windows XP

* No touchscreen or custom input hardware available

* Users have 8 seconds to read and act on screen contents

* May have to fill in values for 1 or 2 fields somehow

Any pointers to existing literature covering this type of
situation would be VERY much appreciated. I dont mind buying a
book or two...

Those sketches were really rough. I'm surprised to see them in your answer.
I appreciate the use of sketches in graphics because a gesture can
communicate a sense of emotion that digital art can reflect only after
rounds of development. Why not use Adobe Illustrator and create a wire
frame? Or use graph paper.

Cooper Test strikes again

Since it seems now to be a new vogue - to publish someone's solutions to the famous Cooper Interaction Designer Test, I cannot resist to post my one, too.

Though I did not try to get a job at Cooper at all, the task seemed to me to interesting to skip it.
Here is my variant (but only the first part - "MS Tables"):

Crit my cooper test, ehehe

Interaction designers in the sf bay area may remember a job post
(11/25/2003) for interaction designer at the sf office of cooper. <D Notice
2003 11 25.pdf>

Their application invites applicants to take their optional "interaction
test" with your application. As I discussed in this forum my background is
in graphic design and my work history in interaction is largely self taught.
I read the test and thought it could help my application. I have been asked
before by prospective employers to take tests.
