[PLUG]A new UX blog...just what the world needs!

Thanks to Whitney Hess, whose presentation on "Evangelizing Yourself"
motivated me to finally start a blog.

My first post is an editorial response to Jared Spool's panel at the
Ix09 conference, which asked where will we find the 10,000 new
interaction designers we need to meet the expected growth in our field.
Here's the link:


I would love to hear any feedback, whether as a comment on the site, a
message here, or a private e-mail.

Technology for User Research

I'm in the process of looking at the past, present and future of technology used for conducting user research/usability analysis of products and digital interfaces. I'd appreciate any publicly shareable examples of innovative tools that you may have used/built to conduct user research. I may include certain examples for a NYC Usability Professionals Association presentation scheduled for October.

Are you building RIA's?

I'm in search of individuals and studios that have been designing and/or
building RIA's. I'm particularly interested in speaking to parties who have
been working with Macromedia Flash and Flex.

I'm in the process of building the user experience discipline for Macromedia
Professional Services and I want to establish outsourcing relationships with
top talent. Please contact me directly if you think that you or your company
fits the bill.

How do you get fast?

Hi everyone, I have a simple question:

How do you get (and stay) fast?

I'm imagining many of us need to work under strict deadlines and budgets, and of course keeping within the boundaries of those budgets is an important quality of the work we do. So what are your tricks? How do you manage estimations, planning, and generally how do you get really fast at what you do? I'm interested in everything from tricks with the tools to how you go through the day, to how you plan your time in a project. 

Looking forward to awesome answers!

Names are Important (was Wood gatherers...)

Good grief! I mean, really?!?

We are not cave people. We don't (only ;) ) communicate with grunts and
chest beating. We have words. Words are one of the most valuable things we
have as humans. They have real meaning. They build up language, which is
at the heart of everything else we build and often at the heart of our
relationships and just generally how we relate to that which is outside

Discussing naming is inextricably intertwined with discussing the underlying
concepts, which are the important bits and what people get worked up over.
Titles are names.
