categories, sections, tags

As some of you know, I've been working with a developer to make a
light-weight CMS/publishing tool. We've focused on magazines and other
small publications, and we've run into an interesting conundrum.

writers guidelines, and how to advertise, and all that.

We will have both tagging and categories on any article/story. So far
we've had "stories", which are time based, more or less, and scroll down
the front page, and "pages" that are fixed in time, and are just in the
"about" section.

colors used in indicating status...

I've been called into provide some advice on an application function that is having problems with readability.

I've helped previously with providing some more high contrast colors in this applciation that retain contrast when viewed through different filters that simulate the two major types of color blindness.

Here's the basics:
The screen in this application is representing the status of a given process for several organizations that a user has rights to see.
The screen has a legend that lists five statuses and the colors for each.

This is a remarkably parochial and unprofessional view. Would you, as a usability professional, examine your own needs, conclude that a feature does not fit those needs, and then declare that there is "no justification" for that feature?

You have actual real users (of this list) in front of you giving actual real reasons this feature is useful to us.

"Design" ... What's up w/ Digital Design?

In the spirit of Ziya's "I'm a designer" pitch. I recently wrote an
article that addresses this concern within what I am calling the digital
design community.
