Touch is the new Click - Gestures are the new UI

Don't know if anyone of you saw the announcements in London two days ago? I
know its outside the US so it doesn't really count, but here is the heads up

A mobile, open development platform with touchscreen, haptic feedback,
presence, GPS location, WiFI/VoIP and an AJAX capable web browser. Only
Google Gears is missing. Nokia showed a touch UI phone with a development
environment. It is not multi-touch, darn! The touch screen in the demo was a
resistive type single point touch screen.

A List Apart web design survey results - Blogging

This survey is always incredibly interesting. I'm sure a lot of us on
this list participated, and the number of total participants this year
blew me away. Over 32,000! That's amazing.

One results I found really interesting in a timely way is that 72% of
web professionals have a blog. I just started a blog for the first
time on years and only have a couple posts at the moment.. and I
actually find this statistic a little discouraging.

Do I have anything new to add to a field that already has
approximately 22,000 voices? Probably not.

A List Apart web design survey results

Not sure if people have noticed this survey from A List Apart that
was published yesterday. It's an annual survey on skills, titles,
geography, salary, hours, etc. in web design.


I'm curious as to people's thoughts of the results.

Auction of UI Intellectual Property?!

Saw the headline below yesterday and thought I'd share. Kind of
trippy; had never thought that intellectual property would/could be
auctioned in this way! Particularly UI stuff. Hmmmm, weird. Anybody
aware of this sort of thing? Thoughts/comments?

How to not change the design (YouTube) with a few commonsensical rules for the change

A quip.

YouTube has changed their design recently. One thing they did right about
the change initially - they didn't force the change: an unobtrusive message
had invited you to "try" the new layout before you switch.
