Imapct of Familiarity on the Usability of Product by Older Adults

As discussed in an earlier post, there is always a tension between
innovation and user expectation. This is especially true for older adults
who have been found to be less capable to use new products/innovative
interfaces than younger people. Therefore, familiarity in design is a key
goal when designing for older adults.

However, to what degree does the familiarity mitigate older adults' physical
decline when interacting with new products? What aspects does familiarity
mean? Which aspects of familiarity facilitate the learning process?

Anyone, please, offer some thoughts on this?

I've been playing with a nifty application called "Konfabulator"[1] for
the past few weeks, and I'm wondering how relevant it is for other
interaction designers.

It's a little environment that allows people to run "widgets", which
are mini-applications. (e.g. show the weather in Paris, a clock with
the time in san francisco) But, what I love is that a widget is just
some graphics and an XML file, so you can easily modify other people's
widgets or write your own.

a physical ones (e.g.

Q: Information overload: how do you keep track?

There is so much great information and new concepts and exciting
theories on this list, and links to same. My feeble brain can't keep up.

How do I keep track of the stuff I want to remember? In a format where
I can remember WHY I wanted to remember it in the first place? I feel
like I could spend my life tagging in delicious.com and still never
keep up.

What do the rest of you do?

If you've got some time to kill.

Hello All:

I recently changed the format of my portfolio to a Wordpress blog
(from a cool, but difficult to maintain Flash site). I've also
updated the content in the portfolio and would like to get some
feedback (off list to avoid a crush of email in everyone's inboxes).
The majority of my work for the last year has been outside the more
normative forms of IxD such as interface design or IA, and I would
like some more seasoned opinions on the work.

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!
