Indexing / storing usability study results

I am working in an organization that is focused on doing quick,
lightweight usability research, especially once the work has a good
foundation: bringing a design into a coffee shop, for example,
running 5 quick (15 minute) studies, making changes, showing 3 more
people the next day, etc.

In this model, I've seen things get revised and re-tested 10 or more

At the same time, there is a formal research organization that would
like to have all the results organized and indexed so they can find
them later.

Hi folks,

It's that time again. :) We're expanding our Design team here at
Infragistics with some interesting and challenging spots that call for some
specialization in interaction design that is not standard.

Who is Infragistics <http://www.infragistics.com>? Among other things, we
make Quince <http://quince.infragistics.com/>, a RIA design patterns tool,
which we just updated to enable folks to have their own private libraries
and annotated examples.

Telling Interactive Stories - At NYCUPA Event

I'm curious what everyone has to say about last night event at Bloomberg
with Andrew DeVigal. Was everyone aware of this stories on the The New
York Times?

Do you think newspapers readers understand how and what to click in
order to view and comprehend the stories as they are told?

I told my story here http://user-experience.iterating.net/

intra-page links and the (mythical) fold

I'll open with a firm conviction of mine: there is no fold. Web pages

interesting statistics, but I'd never recommend designing for just

[Possible Spam] RE: Re: "Intuitive" designs can be cumbersome

Not to sidetrack this interesting conversation, but are any of you
familiar with the system described at www.muse.com? The description is
pretty vague I think, but they seem to be describing an adaptive
(andragogical I'd call it. Does this term apply?) UI for a collaborative
music app of some kind. I guess they've shown it off in some San
Francisco clubs. Just wondering if anyone's seen it in action.

At what point does a mailing list become counter-productive?

Here goes ...

First, I admit that I am not an IA but rather a developer who believes
in creating a synergy with IAs and designers to help solve our common

That being said, this list has become unmanageable.

There are great discussions happening here but it is becoming
increasingly hard to find them amongst the job postings, event
announcements, feel-good off-topic questions, and especially the
numerous snarky replies. I mean there were 15 replies to the Nannybot
etiquette post ...
