Training internal resources in IA


I am currently the only information architect at UVic and management doesn't
have long-term funding to hire further IA resources at this time. I've been
asked to "Ensure that a number of existing resources possess entry-level IA
skills through peer mentoring and education."

We haven't identified any resources with formal or informal IA training. The
resources we'd be training are primarily web developers and possibly a
linguist or library science professional.

I'd appreciate your thoughts on how to go about this.

New course dates in Europe and free e-commerce reports

We've added dates in Brussels and Hamburg to our London UCD & UX courses, plus our latest (free) e-commerce benchmarking report is available for download. See http://www.syntagm.co.uk/design/blog/

The e-commerce report looks at both US and UK clothing retailers. The results are a little like the World Cup - a close run game with a few strong players, but overall pretty much a tie!

The DaVinci Effect Lecture Series

Hey, I thought that some of you might be interested in this upcoming series
being hosted at our offices in Soho, NYC. It is being done by the Alumni
association of CMU and they have some pretty interesting topics to be
covered! We¹ll be adding more of these in the future, so holler if you¹d
like to be added to our mailing list.

Have a great weekend!

Usability Test Participants

I'm working on a website redesign for a small baking company and am looking for participants for a usability test I'm administering this weekend.  I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good website or two where I could post an ad in order to find some people.

Just Because You Can Innovate Doesn't Mean You Should

I'm tuning in a bit late here, so forgive me if someone also has made my

A couple of things about innovation. First, unlike invention, innovation
is planned and never happens by accident. This is an absolutely critical
distinction. Second, it always solves a problem; if it doesn't solve a
problem, it will invariably create one.

So, a new idea is not necessarily innovative. But as Jason points out,
it may have the potential for innovation if handled correctly.

Best practices for implementing javascript (for rich internet applications)

I was documenting best practices for the University where I work, and

and the general okay yesterday:

These practices should be included in your project's technical requirements.

Jonathan Boutelle, a savvier guy than I, has some good comments about
progressive enhancement/graceful degradation that are worth taking
into consideration.
