[EVENT] NYCUPA Presents: Andrew DeVigal On Multimedia Storytelling For The - Monday 4/18 at 6pm

How does someone who spends most of his day in meetings and has ridiculously short deadlines satisfy one of the most demanding clients on earth? How does he deal with technology constraints, and work with subject matter that heats up and then cools down? Multimedia Editor Andrew DeVigal gives us a rare look at how the interactive department of New York Times works, and shares the basic questions he must ask -and answer- before anything goes online.

"Make it pretty" - My Boss

Howdy, I work at an organization that believes having a "Pretty" skin is all you need to have a good User Experience. Has anyone ever run into this, and how does one overcome this. I am literally at my wits end trying to prototype different layouts, and explaining the need for user research/feedback. All comments are welcome, constructive or not.

New soft drink user experience

I just came back from lunch at a fast food restaurant where they were heavily promoting how you can over 100 flavors of soft drinks now.  They had 2 brand new Freestyle dispenser machines.  The part I found fascinating: despite a large, interactive touch screen display and a *fairly* siimple task, the restaurant had not one, but two, assistants helping each and every person get a drink.

Fastco Design article: more hating on UCD

Yet another article on why "we don't need no stinking user centered design" ~ Anyone seen this one? Thoughts?

It seems to me to be just a rehashing of some of the others, citing Apple as one of the examples.

Grand Majority of movies suck arse - is there a role for UX in cinema?

I'm constantly astounded at the increasing inability of "successful" movies to tell stories, build characters, and make an actual point.


I'm a firm believer in narrative - essentially a story needs to have a point (of some sort) - otherwise it's fluff-tastic.
