Creating a UI Spec Document Template

Right now our small team is communicating UI changes and enhancements
with developers using PowerPoint mock ups with notes. I am concerned
this will eventually backfire and would like to bring a little more
formality to the process. Is anyone willing to share their UI spec
document and/or recommendations for putting together a spec. I have
used the PayPal format before but it has been a while and I don't
remember everything that was in it.

Since our team is very small I don't want to bring about a lot of
paperwork just something to make sure we have all of our bases
covered.

Thanks,
Jamie

IAS09+IxD09 = RedUX DC

You couldn't attend Interaction '09 in Vancouver because you are on a
TSA watch list.

You didn't attend IA Summit '09 because Memphis BBQ doesn't sit well
with your new healthy lifestyle.

Join us and some amazing speakers for the first ever combined IAS'09 +
IxD'09 Redux DC.

We are planning an IAS09+IxD09 Redux! We have invited a number of
fantastic people in the UX community from DC, Richmond, Philly and NYC
to come down to the nations capital for a half day presenting
condensed versions of their talks.

Are We The Puppet Masters? The Ethics of IxD.

Hello,
A few months ago, I asked the group if we, as designers, had the right to
influence, or control, the behavior of another person. The feedback
I received was great and inspired me to take the discussion a step further
by writing an article on the subject for Johnny Holland. Please check it
out, and I look forward to your thoughts and feedback,

Thanks!

Other companies like Frog or Ideo

I'm curious if people knew of other companies that were like Frog or Ideo.
Product Design consultancies that merge traditional industrial design and
emerging digital design into a next venue for interaction design?

I want to be a bit more proactive in my search for a perfect job and maybe
look for people to do some information interviews with. I'm particularly
interested if these companies are somewhere along a major NYC based transit
system.

Also, if you have a great portfolio, article or resource to share for future issues, please let me know.

Interview Questions for Persona Development

As part of an independent study project (U Texas iSchool student),
I'm developing personas to help guide the BBA site redesign efforts.
I have access to a wealth of demographic, survey and web analytics
information and also plan to speak to the undergraduate program
office about their perceptions of the site and its users.

Please send your advice about what questions to ask (undergraduate
business school students) when doing interviews for persona
development. I hope to tease out user goals and behaviors.

Error messaging best practices

I'm looking for info on best practices / guidelines for error messaging
(for forms on the web)- both the content of the message and the way
errors are brought to the user's attention.

Does anyone know of any good sources? Or maybe just a site that has an
interesting solution?

Thanks,

Prototyping Tools 2012 - Axure RP 6.0 or iRise Studio

Hi all,

My first post on IXDA.

I realise that this point is raised periodically but wanted to get a quick verdict on the most popular prototyping and wireframe creation tools. 

Criteria is that we are designing enterprise, transactional applications and platforms - with complex interactions and logic and our designers are using mixture of Mac and Pc as their workstations - so ideally I want something multi platform compatible. 

Tools under the microscope are;-

Is Eye Tracking too expensive or complicated?

Hey All,

I just put together about Eye Tracking
(http://www.insideria.com/2008/04/is-eye-tracking-out-of-reach.html)
but I thought I'd put the question out to the list:

"Why isn't eye tracking used more in design and testing of rich
internet applications?"

I really have no experience with it, but am going to be working with
it this summer so looking for thoughts from some of you more
experienced with usability testing and eye tracking.
