Managing Change (Was: Iterative Change Manageme nt / Patriarchs of the Design Family)

I apologise for provoking any infuriation. It is merely what I perceive to
be reality.
However, surely global market forces are creating the environment within
which we can design and create. The global adoption of the design of the
automobile is a good example of this?

Opportunity to review a small Ajax app together

On my hobby usability site, I offer free usability reviews and was recently asked to review a small Ajax app. I've come up with my own observations for it, but it occurred to me this might be an ideal opportunity to do a group exercise, especially since it's a new technology and essentially one powerful form. The site owner OK'd this idea.

I thought it would also help because, being bandwidth sensitive, a logistically diverse audience would help. If you're interested, the site is:

application development. In particular, we are looking for a company
in Japan. Our client is headquartered in Europe, but will also have
the client's Japanese office involved in this project.

Honoraria for remote usability study participants from multiple countries

I'm wondering how others offer compensation in remote usability
studies where participants are drawn from multiple countries. I've
been looking into PayPal, and we've used Amazon in the past but I'd
prefer not to tie people to a particular vendor/site.

JOB: design communicator at Cooper, San Francisco CA

If you're the kind of person who helps others see more clearly, you
might be a design communicator.

What's a design communicator?

We invented the design communicator role years ago because we understood
that great product designs only succeed when they're clearly
communicated to the people who fund, build, and sell them. As it turns
out, having someone focused on clear and thorough communication also
means we have someone ensuring clear and thorough thinking throughout
the project.

transition to ipad - no hover - behaviors unclear - ideas?

I was getting into the groove designing web-page interactions where there is a button, and then hover over the button reveals a panel for configuration.
This allowed progressive disclosure, and if the users didn't initially find the panel, it was a-ok.   Hover panels are great for layering.
However, with the i-Pad those nice hovers (which are kinda discoverable) don't exist, instead they turn into a tap.   And then activation of the actual button is a double-tap.

Success Metrics (was: Visual aspects of interactiondesign...)

MessageHi Frank

Please see my responses below... ***

You wrote:
Yes, most of us are after better products from a usability and visual design perspective. However, don't you think that all designs should be evaluated based on unique, pre-identified success metrics?

***Certainly, this makes sense.

For example, an interactive design submitted to Comm Arts is probably going to have success metrics skewed toward innovation in the visual design realm. In that realm, text on gifs *could* be evaluated as good design if extensibility, download time, etc.
