Ethnographic research methods

Hi,

I am looking for structured methods of ethnographic field research (video or
not), or other types of research methodologies to get insights on users
behavior in context.

Does anyone have experiences that could be shared? I would like to know pros
and cons if possible.

Thank you all.

Marking Required vs. Optional form fields

When creating a form, do you feel that it is more advantageous to mark
the required fields, even if they are in the majority? I ask because
I'm working on some guidelines for a client, and there is some debate
about which way to go with this. After reading Luke Wroblewski's book,
"Web Form Design: Filling In the Blanks", I have to agree with his
sentiment about indicating the MINORITY of the form elements:

FROM 'Web Form Design': "Many times there actually are
good reasons for indicating what is required when updating or creating a
record online.

Software/Hardware for UX Designer

Hello, 

We're starting to build the case/need for a UX designer internally; however, I need to provide a list of anticipated software/hardware requirements. Might anyone have any insight as to what items might be basic for a new UX designer? Mac or PC? 

Thanks!

Symbol / icon for "Clear All" button

Hi,

I'm currently working on an on-screen keyboard as part as the GUI for a set-top box (for typing in passwords, urls etc). I have found that there seems to be a pretty consistent use of symbols/icons for function keys such as Backspace, Shift and Space on existing physical keyboards and mobile devices. So these symbols are pretty well known amongst users. For instance, an outlined up-arrow as the shift symbol.

UX to Developer ratio

What is the ratio of UX individuals to developers in your organizations? I realize that the timeline of a given project, size of the project etc has an effect on this number. I just want to get a general idea of the trend of this ratio today. Further, what do you think it should be? If you could mention the size of your company, that would give me a  better idea too.

Filters: Is there a better way?

I've been collecting and thinking about filters, and also watching
people (try to) use sites with various filtering schemes.

It seems to me that there's a limit to what you can do with a set of
filters such that the filters are 1) noticed, 2) clear and 3) not
overwhelming.

The problem is that the larger the data set you're trying to help a
user parse, the more tempting filters are, and paradoxically the more
overwhelming/less-usable they become. Smaller filter sets like
hotels.com seem to be ok, but they work less well for larger data
sets.
