In June,  the conference “From Business to Buttons” in Malmö, southern
Sweden is on for the third year. Some of the biggest international
names in business strategy, interaction design and usability will be
there for keynotes, lectures and workshops.

Experiences in minutes

Fascinating post from Jan Chipchase
relating to the coming of the billionth Iphone download but more
importantly the trend in mobile applications of an expected

Text advertisements e.g. AdSense - open links in same or new window

- should these links open in the same window or a new browser window?

We have deployed AdSense across a number of newspaper websites and see some
benchmarks opening in new windows and others in the same window.

and make sense of the recent (and ongoing) Cambrian-like explosion of
new design activities, fields, or domains of practice that has caused
some angst and confusion among those who affiliate themselves with
"interaction design".

How to organize it all and make sense of it?
I offer this as one helpful aid.

Password Strength Requirements

Does anyone have any evidence, anecdotal or formal, about how
different password strength requirements impact the usability of a
