Use of "Your" or "My" in Personalized WebApplication Design

A few years ago, my company made the choice to use "your" instead of
"my," because it seemed less presumptuous. We wanted to be speaking to
our customers rather than pretending to be in their skin. It seemed
more honest.

But recently, we're finding our marketing people want to use "my"
because it's so prevalent.

Ignorance, or just poor terminology?

In the past, I have considered Palm to be a company that understands
and employs good design, both the industrial and interaction flavors.
I was disappointed to read this quote by there CEO:

> BARCELONA (MarketWatch) -- Palm, Inc, the maker of the Treo smart
> phone, will continue to focus on ease of use and reliability rather
> than design, Palm CEO Ed Colligan said in an interview at the 3GSM
> telecommunications trade show here.

Focusing on ease of use rather than design?

Use of "Your" or "My" in Personalized Web Application Design

Howdy ya'll,

So does anyone have strong feelings--or better yet, research--about
whether its better to use "Your" or "My" to describe personalized
stuff in web application design? I'm working with a client who has
made extensive use of "Your" and I have this gut sense that "My" would
be better... more personal, more of a dialog between company and user,
more common and familiar...

Poetry, Philosophy, and Interaction Design (and me)

Hello Interaction Designers!

My name’s Mitch and I’m a poet-philosopher/aspiring Interaction
Designer. I just finished my Ph.D. thesis in philosophy and I won
Australia’s first national poetry slam and, as you can imagine, this
is not at all the same as 3-5 years of experience in interaction
design.

IxD in agile environments

Anyone doing IxD work in an agile programming environment? If so, what are
you doing to make it work with agile processes? Is it succeeding? What are
the problems you've had?

I know there's been some talk about this before on this list, and it seems a
lot of people are having serious trouble finding ways to adapt and work with
agile methods, but I've formed some ideas about this on my own, because I've
been working like this for a long time and have found ways to make it work
for me, and am wondering what other people have come up with.

Thanks.
