Alert Fatigue

Dear Professors
Hello, and thanks for any help ahead of time.
I am a Medical Informatics student at OHSU and right now I am in a research
methods class at my institution: Geisinger.
For My project I wanted to investigate Alert Fatigue, suffering, myself,
from the condition.
So far most of what I can document comes from high-risk industries like
nuclear power, aerospace and the military. There is very little data in the med
informatics literature.
As I begin the topic though, I can find very little nomenclature defined
Is there taxonomy of alerts?

usability testing of government web forms


I am looking for studies, articles, etc. of usability testing done with
government web forms, and can't seem to find very much research on the
subject. I would also be interested in articles about government web testing
that include forms as part of the report, even if the article includes other
elements. Do any of you know of papers on this subject? (Apologies for
cross-posting to a few lists!)

Creative Waves - COTEN Call for Participants

Hi all - I know some of you can't bear the term service design, but I also know many of you (like me) find it very much akin to your IxD or UX work. I could do with some help spreading the word on a collaborative online project I'm running based on a series that we have done over annually called Creative Waves.

Incentives for UI testing

I am currently looking into different types of incentives for
participants who take part in our UI testing sessions, and would like
to know about other UX types' experiences and recommendations...

Does the type of incentive affect the quality and/or reliability of
the participants?

interested in your thoughts on this one...

Songza Compare Seeqpod

Hi all

I think the Songza interface is far more interesting when you compare it
with Seeqpod.com.

Seeqpod has offered a very similar service for quite some time. While Songza
is more visually attractive to me, I think seeqpod is much easier to
interact with and use. I'd be interested to know what you think too.

However, my one major reservation with Seeqpod is that it is Flash based
when it needn't be.

Documenting State Changes in Web Apps

Question for the gallery:

My company has until recently been documenting state changed -within-
our visual design example documents. That is, we incorporate
explanations of the various states of widgets and interface points in
the same document that contains our wireframes/mockups.

I was wondering if any of my esteemed colleagues here do this a
different and potentially better way? We've tossed around the idea of
having an external text document that lists each page, each field, and
each state for each field. Possibly even an excel file etc.

Any opinions?

CFP: CHI 2006 Work-in-Progress

(Apologies for cross-posting)

This year marks the introduction of the Work-in-Progress venue.
Work-in-Progress submissions provide an opportunity for both
practitioners and researchers to present a concise report of new
findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant
to the HCI community.

Like interactive posters of the past, Work-in-Progress focuses more on
visual presentation and discussion between the author and attendees
around the poster.

[PLUG] glassdoor.com goes live

As you guys may have noticed in the MSM and the blogosphere, the
project I have been doing IA, UX, UE, concepting, wireframing,
interaction design, logo design, naming, branding, graphics, interface
design and more for during the past year went live last night.

So what is it? Glassdoor.com is opening the doors to companies
everywhere by allowing anyone to find and anonymously share real-time
reviews, ratings and salary details about specific jobs for specific
employers — all for free.
