Resources on Ethnography and Digital Design?

Hi All,

Can you suggest reading materials that discuss application of ethnography to digital design? I have a lot of snippets and slideshares and deliverables, but am having trouble digging up more comprehensive resources on application to digital design for a friend.

Thanks,

Paul Bryan

[SALE] sxsw interactive session tix (3)

due to some unexpected changes in our company, I have three (3) tickets for SXSW interactive that need new, loving homes. i thought someone here might find be interested.

what: these are for the Interactive portion
when: March 11-15.
price: $420 each (cheap).

note that the sxsw organization requires registration information, so we cant just scalp these over on 1st street.
they makes the transfer process more burdensome/annoying than it needs or should be,
but i will undertake to smooth that, and we will pay the exorbitant transfer fee.

Resource Planning in UX Roles?

HI Everyone,

My team and I are trying to figure out how many resources we need for a year. Forecasting our time has proven difficult, because internally to our organization our time is not tracked hourly, but is known as Business As Usual, which usually denotes coming off of a bottom line SOMEWHERE, but it's not specific to a specific project per se.

There in lies the problem.

"Login" using Name, DOB and SSN

Scenario :

User is filling out a long application for a financial product.  At first, they were going to have the ability to create and ID and password, so they can come back and continue at a later time.  However, due to scope reduction, they were suggesting the option of having the user log in to continue using their name, date of birth, and SSN.  

Not going to be enough time for testing (except for walking around the office to get feedback).

How do you think applicants would feel about this?

Remote Whiteboarding Tools Anyone?

Hello,

What methods are people using to include remote project team members in brainstorming or whiteboarding sessions? Has anyone succesfully found a way to do this using MS Live Meeting or some other screen-sharing tool?

Thanks,
