e-mails every day. Anyway, the gist of it is ... "How dare you claim to lead
us if your site looks like such crap?" Like I said, I bet Jakob gets a

IxDA SF Presents When UX Research is Evil

keeping the methods sound, recruiting good users, and asking the right
questions, which is already a tall order. Unfortunately, no matter how well

research ultimately gets used.

IxD Advice for Developers

I enjoy reading this list although I don't have much to contribute being a developer.

I have never worked in a shop that had any Interaction Designers. Most of the time we don't even get to do any real design up front.

Pagination: allowing the user to decide number of records shown

Does anyone have any good examples of user interfaces for pagination which
allow the user to decide how many records are shown per page? I'm thinking
outside just the simple drop down list, granted that may end up being the
most ideal solution but am curious if there are others out there.
