Prototyping tools: Axure (on Mac) VS Fireworks VS Flash Catalyst VS ???

Hi all,

For one of our clients I am asked to create a 'clickable demo' for usability testing. I've started this thread to ask you guys what tools you use/prefer/advice to create clickable demos (including arguments would do best). The project is about a recruitment section of a corporate site and will include pretty much dynamic content and some flash elements.

Examples of web application system documentation?

Hi all,
Where could I find good examples of web application system documentation? Are there best practices and standards that I could rely upon?
We are customizing a web ordering (which we are proprietary) for a client and just delivered its system documentation (site maps, processes flows with notifications, high level interactions between web servers and databases, system structure description, and main screens descriptions – not at the object level but with emphasis on main functionalities).

Why would you do email verification for people who sign up?

We're having a debate about this.

You could do email verification so that there's something of an audit trail back to a person, but since anyone can set up a new hotmail or gmail at the drop of a hat, does that count for much?

You can do it so that you know it's a working email address, for data quality, although you could just delete non-verified accounts after a period of time.

Ruby on Rails in Financial Services Applications

I was just part of a hallway conversation here at work about whether
many financial services institutions use Ruby on Rails in their secure
areas. For example, how many banks are using it in their online
banking applications, and what were their concerns about security?

If you work in the financial services arena (banks, accountancy firms,
etc.) and you've used Ruby on Rails, or if you're convinced that it
isn't secure enough to be used for financial transactions, would you
mind sharing your experiences/opinions?

Thanks!

Name Top Agile UX Consulting Firms

Hello all,

I'm looking for a "short list" of top consulting firm recommendations (Boston, NY area preferred, but US-wide is ok too) to consider from anyone who has had direct experience working with such firms that have really proven their worth to introduce and foster transormative work practice around Agile UX for web design/development teams. To help frame the scope of the consulting, I'm envisioning a 5-8 day cross-discipline/stakeholder workshop and educational service focused on agile UX and collabortive web product design/innovation.

Ethnography - Frameworks

Dear All,

I am looking for resources around frameworks for data collection and data
analysis during ethnographic studies.

For e.g. one such framework is POSTA:

P - Person
O - Objects
S - Situations
T - Time
A - Activity

So "Person" for e.g. in POSTA means follow a person around understanding
what are they doing, why etc. Looking for more...

Cheers
Alok Jain

"Way Out" vs "Exit" - Signage usability and passenger experience

Vancouver, Canada recently opened a new subway system called "Canada
Line" (http://www.canadaline.ca). While I notice quite a few issues
in the whole passenger experience, one thing that makes me wonder the
most is the exit sign: instead of printing "Exit", they use "Way
Out". My thoughts:

- "Exit" is almost the international standard word to indicate an
exit route.

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.
