Best Practices for "Was this helpful?"

Many sites that offer help conclude the information with a feedback question such as "Was this helpful?"  This can be a valuable mechanism to tailor online or in product Help better. 

Our team would like your help:  We'd like to hear what everyone does.  What question do you ask with what scale or input?  How well does that work?  What would you change?  What are some best practices for "Was this helpful?" questions.

UX 2010 Conferences

If you had just one conference to attend, which of the two would you choose: UX Week San Francisco or UX London?  And why?

This will be my first conference, and both look extremely appealing.  I don't think I can lose either way, but I can only afford to go to one.  I live in California myself and the travel to San Francisco would be minimal, although the experience of a trip to London would be incredible.

What are your thoughts?  Any experience in either conferences of the past?

Visual design association


I would like to ask if anyone could point out a visual design association well organized as IxDA. I am aware of some of them like AIGA, Core 77 and a couple of others, but I feel all of those I know lack the type of resourceful discussion list and engaged community found here.

Needless to say that nothing prevents visual design threads being cast on IxDA as we notice from time to time, but I am after something more specific about that discipline of design.

Thank you.

[EVENT] Recap: IxDA Austin // Will Evans & Russ Unger on The Right Way to Wireframe

Many thanks to Will Evans and Russ Unger for last night’s great presentation and conversation on the right way to wireframe.  40+ people attended the two hour event held at Leadership Austin and we saw a lot of new faces.  We were kindly sponsored by projekt202 who provided beer, empanadas and other essentials.  Thanks everyone for coming out and a special thanks to Will who didn’t hesitate to tack on yet one more presentation to his Austin trip.
