on the question of location & your job ... Florida has some answers (person not state)

Putting people first put this out there:
http://www.experientia.com/blog/what-does-your-city-say-about-you/

It's an interview with Robert Florida about his upcoming book, "Who is your
city?"

Interesting for sure. Especially in context of our recent discussion about
SV.

Visual Icons on cell phones

Hello

I am doing a bit of research on what kind of generic icons are used to
represent broad categories, the specific category I am interested in is
entertainment.

What I am looking for is if people can help me out under what category do
all your entertainment activities like music, games etc. are placed on your
"current" cell phone.

fireworks

Hi,

So, I've heard a lot about using Fireworks for working through a
design from wireframe to prototype, even to finish visual design.. For
the people who use/love Fireworks I have a few questions:

- how do you integrate with the standard graphic design workflow
involving Photoshop/Illustrator. Photoshop files import as bitmaps,
so it's hard to convert things into symbols etc...

- on the other side.. what if you have to work with other designers
not using Fireworks?

user research: seniors and the web

I'm having a very difficult time finding user research on older
adults and the internet. I've come across sporadic general computer
anxiety articles, but nothing truly insightful on online behaviors.
Ideally, I am focusing on senior citizens, but I will gladly add late
baby-boomers to the mix.

I would greatly appreciate a point in the right direction or
suggestions.

Thanks,
Erin

Why Import/Export - A broken metaphor. MoreSemantic thoughts from the underground.

In innovation jargon, this phenomenon is known as dominant design. The
question of "too late" is less about how how superior a new design is, and
more about how willing people are to pay the learning & change costs
required to learn the new thing. In the Apple Play/pause case, there are
small learning costs: it's the removal of one of two redundant buttons most
are already familiar with.
