New Yahoo Group For Boston Interaction Designers

We've recently started a Yahoo group called UX Boston as part of the
User Experience Network.

Things are just getting going with the Yahoo group but we already have a
good mix of interaction designers,
usability consultants, and information architects represented.

Re: Menu caption design (Sandeep Jain)

Another option is to have a history window similar to
Photoshop's. Keep the menu name short (Either "Undo"
or "Undo Move"), but in the history window have a
longer description "Undo Move Zone A", using the
guidelines Jim outline below for the best terminology.

To "argue this with your engineering manager", you
might try to pointing to existing applications. Remind
them of how they don't like to see non-standard menu
names, or how unwieldy (or helpful!) a particular name
might be. Try to point to specific resources that back
you up.

Field research question

Our user interface team is seeking information from those who have
conducted user research field studies - in particular, research and
interviews within people's homes.

For instance:
- How often have you conducted such studies?

- What examples can you point to as key benefits to doing field research?
(over lab-based near equivalents)?

- What kinds of problems have you encountered when doing such research?

IA & IxD, a marriage made by necessity and in heaven (was RE: [ID Discuss] Organizing 'How to' articles/Tech-notes)


The above link is a blog entry I just made. I took Navneet's post about
"how-to" articles and went off on a tangent. I don't want people to not
answer Navneet. His question is great. But this is where my mind when when I
saw his posting.

iPhone - its not about the UI

I think we need to realize that iPhone-lust is not about the UI or the
features. Look at the ads. The calamari add message is about fun,
spontaneity, movies, restaurants, leisure time. It is a lifestyle device, a
contraption you use to signal to yourself and your surroundings who you are.
Its about having the newest, most shiny gadget for people that can afford a
$2000 phone.

As one of the most expensive feature phones on the market, it has to match
the basic features of its competitors like camera and email. Not having
basic features is not an option.
