[PLUG] UIE Book Club: 2/1 - Robert Hoekman's Designing the Obvious 2nd Edition

[Apologies for any cross posting.]

UIE Book Club: Designing the Obvious, Second Edition
by Robert Hoekman Jr.
Tuesday, February 1 - 3pm ET / 2pm CT / 1pm MT / Noon PT

Join me in February, as I kick off the 2011 UX Book Club with the talented and funny Robert Hoekman, Jr.

The 2nd edition of Designing the Obvious just showed up in my mailbox and, wow, I’m excited. The first edition was a great book -- so great that I kept lending my copy out and not getting back. I think I bought 5 of them.

Clone or Duplicate? What should be the right label?

Hi fellow designers,

I have a grid that shows a list of schedules and user can then duplicate a schedule by clicking on a button (just above the grid) and make necessary changes. I want to call this button "Duplicate" and my dev team thinks this is "Clone".

I have seen the term 'Duplicate' getting used more common these days but is there any other logical reason why we should use 'Duplicate' and not 'Clone' or vice versa?


Thanks for your help,

The Traceability of Research into Design

In a recent convo on Twitter, Janna DeVylder, Dave Malouf, Steve Baty and I were discoursing about the difficulties of traversing the Research > Design chasm. Some really great thoughts ensued. So, I thought I'd keep the convo going here.

It's a topic I'm keely interested in. Having helped present From Design to Research at Agile '09, and having worked on this for many years, I still realize I have lots to learn.
