JOB Senior Interface Designer, Brighton UK, Ribot, Full Time

Hi fellow IxDAers, we are ribot: a crack commando unit of ideas people,
based in central Brighton, UK, who focus on creating innovative User
Interfaces (UI) for mobile.

We're growing, working directly with some great clients, like Nokia,
Microsoft, the Labs teams at Orange & Lastminute.com, and Rough Guides, to
name just a few...

Ribot was set up to explore the boundaries of small screen UI and user
experiences. Our passions lie in creating innovative simple-to-use
interfaces that excite and inspire the very people who use them.

You may be right that email is not ideal for "communities," but I'm not sure that the organization's goal of creating a community is what most people use this (or any) discussion list/forum for most of the time.

Social Network Open Source Platform - Recommendations?

I am looking for a Social Networking Platform (LAMP preferably) - Open
Source would be ideal, which will allow the user to see a specific
template once they login, dependant upon the domain they align
themselves to during sign-up.

The user chooses an email username, which is then attached to one of
200 domain names. This domain is branded and the user sees this once
they login through the main portal.

Any pointers?


ps: as for assigning email addresses - I am open to taking advice
here too!! :)

how to position a new "beta" feature -- examples?

I imagine this might be a tough one, but you IxDAers never fail me, so
here goes.

Can anyone think of any sites that are currently offering two versions
of a particular *feature*, classic and beta?

To be clear, I'm NOT looking for:
- brand new sites that are still in beta testing mode
- existing sites that have an entire beta replacement site to try out
(e.g. Gmail's Older Version / Newer Version)

Instead I'm looking for sites that have, say, two different searches
available - their old search, and a new search that they're testing.

Enterprise Application Design Approach Question


Has anyone ever designed an enterprise application's first release to have only a wizard for creating complex 'objects'; then, offered a more hands on solution for a hot fix or subsequent releases?

The above question occurred to me during a presentation of an enterprise application that took months to design.  Moreover, it was only after the project had been developed could the design fully be realized in all of its complexity.

statistical significance


To be honest, unless you've got just two audience segments (personas) then
I'd suggest you look at whether or not you can talk to all of them in some
form. Barring that, I'd suggest around 10 users per estimated persona. As a
minimum, I'd be aiming at 24-30.
