I wonder if anyone knows where I can get information about Workload

To sort or not to sort

I'm reviewing designs for a search feature. My question is regarding the
search results...the design has the results coming back in a table/grid
format. Columns contain Title/Description, Subtype/Date, and File Type.

I initially was reviewing the wireframes for consistency w/ the
application this feature will be integrated with, and not necessarily at
the context of use of this feature. I came back w/ a recommendation to
include sortability on the results table.

Interview with Google Chrome Team

For anyone interested in trying to revive the IxDA dead horse called
Google Chrome, Steve Gillmor had an excellent interview with the
product manager and UI developer. Lots of things we discussed here
were talked about in the interview, confirming my thinking on where
they are going.

Gain IxD Experience Strategy

Hi All,

I'm trying to transition into the IxD area of IT. I
come from a backend web application developer background, approx. 7
years. Although, I've done some minor CSS, JavaScript, etc., I'm not a
visual designer. My interest in IxD has come about over the last year
or so due to my having done tons of hard work, along with my teammates,
on the backend of web applications, only have the users who don't know
anything about all the backend stuff complain and not like the
usability of the system.

Usable Query filtering examples?

Hi all,

Can anyone point me to usable examples of filtering information? We are building a site that affords users the ability to sort through a dataset of @ 1000 items, which are grouped into one of 3 types. The types are not mutually exclusive, so users may search for one type of item, and then query for a specific subgroup.
