Axure Pattern Library

I've created a small pattern library for Axure containing some useful
widgets and interactions. If you use Axure, or would like to see what kind
of prototypes it generates, take a look:

Does anyone have their own patterns that they would like to post? I would
also be interested in knowing if anyone found this useful.

Best,
Loren

Sites with good examples of bad UIs?

I hesitate to ask this, because I have lost hours wandering around in such
sites, but anyway:
I'd appreciate recommendations for sites that analyze/discuss/make fun of
bad UI designs. Examples are www.buigallery.com*, http://www.baddesigns.com,
etc. I know I have seen others but I'm not remembering/finding them at the
moment.

Thanks,

Al

* I love the "snarky comments" on this site. Spent way too long clicking and
laughing yesterday.

Hybrid mailing list / forum?

Are there any community software packages which work like the IxDA site does
-- that is, a mailing list that works like a forum, and a forum that works
like a mailing list? I haven't seen this executed well anywhere outside the
IxDA site, and I assume that one is all custom.

privacy of the user.

*Sub-use case/scenario:* The user has mistyped their password while logging
in.
*Associated features: *Login screen, password security feedback, lost
password functionality, error feedback system.
*Associated users/actors: *Child, parent, administrator

Req: Reference on readability of centered vs left-justified text

Does anyone have a reference showing that left-justified text is more
readable than centered text?

Something like:
(a) an academic study or paper
(b) a textbook
(c) a well-known graphic design book

I've been googling for a while and have found many pages that agree
with me, but none citing sources. :/

What questions to ask for a persona interview?

Hi,

I am pre paring to conduct an interview to create personas for a medical web application doctors and patients. This app is not built yet, and the feature set will be drawn from the personas -- which is why it's giving me a pause. I am used to writing interviews about usability, and always used to work with existing websites. I never created personas before, though I used them before, and I'm having difficulty coming up with questions to ask the interview candidates.

UML for UX?

My organization is moving toward UML for all of its documentation,
from requirements through development and maintenance. The UX
practice here is in it's infancy and I am now a team of one. While
I'm familiar with UML, I'm skeptical that it will be appropriate
for user flows and any other UX documentation.

Has anyone worked in a UML environment? How did you integrate your
practice into RUP or similar methodologies?
