Does anyone know if there's a report about that estimates the total size of the usability/UX market. I managed to find one report that puts a figure on the UK market size, but can't seem to see anything about the global market.
I am doing an impossible research. Currently I am trying to find out how all the different telecom self-service portals work. As it's almost impossible for me to be a customer for all mobile carrier (around the world), I am asking the community to help.
This thread can act as a resrouce gathering for pattern study in telecom self-service. (if we manage to gather enough screenshots) I think this would be benefitial to everyone as this is not just a portal, not just a website, but more of a service design on the web.
In your profession, is self learning using online forumns and discussion groups and ebooks or attending traditional way of training helped more?
I used to read lots of books and actively using discussion forumns like IxDA, LinkedIn Groups and blogs of experts than attending traditional way of training. My last company I worked thinks that since I was not attended any training in their period, even though I was gaining good knowledge using web, that I am far behind in gaining new knowledge.
I was researching on new technology and media for RIA and found Live Mesh. I found that it seamlessly connects your data through Windows PC, Mac, Mobile Phone, and other devices. It is an interesting concept and would we not want all our work to be seamlessly, updated wherever we are on the go?
I'm looking for suggestions for ways I can usability test some
micro-interactions on the site I'm working on. We've worked out a
bunch of the big questions - the flow and IA seem to be working, the
visual design is adding to the content, and users are enjoying
themselves on the site - but a handful of issues regularly pop up
that I would like to be able to test out with some users.
I am trying to figure how companies around the globe describe people
they want to hire, and how they call each function.
