online photo galleries

hello all -

i am curious as to your thoughts on online photo galleries.

when i say photo galleries i am speaking of both:
1. the management of personal galleries (eg. kodak gallery) and
2. viewing public galleries (eg. 'photos of the day' on any online publication)

good examples? bad examples? why? one technology vs another?

thanks for any ideas you all may have!

happy holidays,
valerie

Testing usability of mobile applications

Hi,

I'm planning on usability-testing a S40 application, and would like
to hear about the ways you tend to test usability of mobile
applications. Paper prototype is always an option, however, is that
all you do, or do you test with real devices? If so, do you capture
the input some ways, possibly with a software or a camera, or do you
just watch the user use his mobile?

Regards,

LePo

results: harnessing technology's potential without being harnessed to technology

Hi all,
A week ago I asked the question, "How do we best stay abreast of rapidly changing technologies and their implications/potential for interaction design without getting bogged down code?" I received excellent responses from all: suggestions ranging from newsletters, sites-to-watch, and script libraries, to conferences, blogs, and discussion groups; as well as some excellent sound bites along the lines of this one: "What is possible and what is desirable--our job is to find the intersection of these two spaces.

discuss Digest, Vol 38, Issue 28

I've encountered this kind of quandry myself in design projects. I believe
there is an as yet unamed factor, that I'll call "interaction style" for the
moment (back to the aesthetics discussion).

The thing is either interaction style may be a valid proposition, however,
once the designs are carried through they can't easily be compared (through
testing say) because at that point you'd be comparing apples and organges.
It is like comparing a house built in a minimalist zen style and one made
into a luxurious garden and asking which is more beautiful.
