Realsitic Data in Wireframes/Prototypes/Mockups?

Hi All,

I have been thinking lately about the process for creating mockups and in particular, the data they display. I'm curious about whether the data should be more realistic or completely generic. Is one more effective than the other during client/stakeholders reviews? And so on...

I know you are all busy with work and life but if you can spare a moment and share your feedback regarding the questions below, I would be very appreciative.

Basic time tracking and invoicing for a solo consultant

I'm neck-deep in looking at various options for doing basic time tracking
and invoicing just for me, not a whole agency. I've wasted a ton of time on
this and figured I'd tap the collective wisdom here.
Up until about a year ago I used a pretty simple timer on my Treo and an
Excel spreadsheet for the invoices.

JJG's IA Summit 2009 Keynote

The longer that thread gets, the crankier I get, so I'm starting a new one
specifically to talk about Jesse James Garrett's talk at the IA Summit last
weekend. It's what he wanted us to do, anyway.

How do I start a career in IxD? (already have bachelor's, but not in design)

Hi IxDAers,

What would you recommend for someone interested in getting started with interaction design, but who already has their bachelor's?

My plan was to make a website and gradually fill it through designing my own projects (or volunteering if I can find something nearby), but first I wanted to know if there was a better way of going about this.

If it's relevant, I have degrees in Cognitive Science and Studio Art, can teach myself programming languages, and have some experience with counseling and scientific research.

Its Just UX

During the closing plenary of the IA Summit on Sunday, Jesse James
Garrett said that “Information Architecture is not a profession …
and neither is Interaction Design … we have and always will be User
Experience Designers”. I’m paraphrasing a little from memory (the
podcast isn’t out yet) - but the gist is there.

I’m a big believer in this viewpoint (and I chaired the IA Summit
last year!).

Next & previous button order

As discussed by LukeW in Web Form Design, it's best to have the primary
action of a form be the first button that the user sees. For left-to-right
languages this means having the primary action on the left and any secondary
actions on the right (see A in this illustration
http://www.flickr.com/photos/rosenfeldmedia/2366430953/ ).

Looking for great examples of customer reviews for ecommerce.

Hi,    I'm looking to collect some best practice examples to feed into a ratings and reviews project I'm working on for an ecommerce site in the UK. Can you think of any great examples - maybe something you've seen or something you've done you wouldn't mind sharing. 

  Thanks in advance for your help.   Cheers
