Sorry for words in previous mail if it made you unhappy. What i mean camera as enabler for touch points , e.g. sns. ( e.g Facebook, Twitter, Flicker) applications or something like that.

Cheers, Jarod

DUH Accreditation

Hello list,

Long time lurker, first time poster. Has anyone gotten DUH Accreditation? Any thoughts to share?

I’m an amateurish designer with minimal experience with UX/IxD/IA and wanted to get a position at a good firm. Would this be a better option for me than Cooper’s course or Usability Week? Grad school is out of the question.

Thanks.

Re: [IxDA] Simplicity is Not Overrated, Just Misunderstood

Hi Derrek,

Just forget the name, smartphone or feature phone, or even forget if it should be called phone. None one really care about the difference between smartphone and feature phone. What matter is what people want in mobile, or between/across places. Take for your case, "a more professional camera setup than iPhone", what will behind the touchpoint? maybe a photo/video sharing service ( to a sns ), maybe a mobile shopping service, etc.

Hey Dan, Can we get the degree in our choice of font? And do you take Pay Pal? I find that users prefer a varied selection of payment options;) Keep up the great work!

Design Usability Heuristics (DUH) Accreditation: A Modest Proposal

Are you a crappy but ambitious designer? Career going nowhere? Tired of spending time at conferences learning things but have nothing to show for it except knowledge? Don't want the hassle of getting an actual degree at an accredited university in design or HCI, but don't want to pay some company money for their fake accreditation?

IntrAnets: Remote usability software

Hi all. 

It occurred to me that most remote usability software (e.g. remote observation tools like moseflow, surveys etc) are made to run on the IntErnet.

However, if you're testing on the IntrAnet, you won't have access to the Internet and therefore these tools don't work.

One option is to have these software hosted on a local server within the IntrAnet. However,  most of these solutions only work on the Internet and have no option for local hosting.

Simplicity is Not Overrated, Just Misunderstood

This article is a response to Don Norman's column article from Interactions Magazine. The article disproves Norman's point that simplicity is highly overrated and that users only buy products based on complexity and features, and provides a more accurate and substantial point of view.
