NYC IxDA Event: Alex Wright, NY Times, Sept. 27th

NYC IxDers,

It's time for another NYC IxDA event, hot on the heels of event
announcements in Philly, Waterloo, San Francisco, and Boston. This month in
New York, Alex Wright, an Information Architect at the New York Times, will
talk about the technological limitations we face on the web, and about the
Interaction Design lessons that we can learn from the precursors to the web
to help get around them.

A Tale of Two Phones

I know we had an active discussion about the iPhone when it launched, but I
thought that you might enjoy a short essay I just wrote on our blog called a
Tale of Two Phones. It¹s about the differences between my experiences with
my Nokia 9500 and my iPhone. You can find it at http://tinyurl.com/ys2852

Happy reading!

Sources for online help tool: FAQ and "helpdesk" combined


I'm currently searching for a usable user interface solution for an
online "help tool", which would combine FAQ and helpdesk at company.com.
The idea is to offer so simple and tempting user interface to FAQ,
that users would prefer that to sending the e-mail.

I guess the problem is quite universal among web sites, but so far, I
have found no good examples of how to implement this.

New Music Interface…

Dunno how many people here know elektroplankton.com for the
NintendoDS™ but the same guy-Toshio Iwai-created a new musical
instrument for Yamaha.
Looks pretty interesting.
I really love the direction of going really digital. Photography is
still so damm old school. I mean I use a digital SLR as well but
besides the sensor there is nothing digital in there.

where to use eye tracking?

Hi all,

Recently I got chance to try out eye tracking setup for one project. But I'm little confused about what phase is appropriate for using eye tracking. I mean for performance test, we can take tasks and test with users and get observations, for affordance test, I don’t think there is any need of eye tracking setup (as it can be executed by asking questions). So according to my understanding, eye tracking is purely for re-design so is this understanding correct?

Thanks, Kishor Sonawane

Google's New Design

By now, I’m sure we all must have noticed the new design that Google recently rolled out. I somehow feel that the left hand sidebar filters can be designed better.  Even the transition from more search tools to fewer search tools does not seem to be very smooth. Google has been experimenting with this sidebar for many months now. I wish if there was an option to “turn off” this new sidebar. Though I really like the way more filters are given in search categories such as Images, Books etc.  Especially the color and type search in images is absolutely fundu.
