Could this be true?

We know that Americans are better designers [1]. But is it also the case
that men are better designers than women?

Microsoft's "mind reading" patent

Heres a scary thought!

Microsoft is applying for a patent to monitor user's brain waves in
order to determine the effectiveness of user interfaces. Could this be
the end of user testing as we know it?

Here is the url at BoingBoing where I read about it:

Meet up in New Zealand

Hello, all!

So the Interactive Community down here in New Zealand seems a little
thin, maybe a meet up would be in order?

It would be great to find out if there are actually any New
Zealanders in this community, and if so, where abouts are you?

Preserving Filter Selections

Hello everyone,

I do not have the ability to do any usability testing for this, but I wanted to know if there was a best practice for this scenario:

The user lands and on media asset viewer (default view w/another view option) with options to filter the media asset viewer by category and media type. After making a few filter selections, the user then flips the media asset viewer to another view - would most users expect that their filter selections from the previous view to be preserved?

Your opinions are very welcomed.

Thanks

[Event] Chicago IxDA--Campaign learnings of America for make benefit glorious movement of progress

During the last few months of the presidential campaign, Billy Belchev and
Paul Baker of Webitects traveled to Obama for America offices in swing
states studying the campaign's ground game.

Using design research methods, they recorded screens, mouse movements, and
voices as organizers "cut turf," pulled walking and calling lists, entered
volunteer information, etc. They also photographed and collected artifacts,
took videos of strategy meetings, and interviewed organizers.

Is the browsers back button our report card showing an F (most cases)?

To put it simply (and a bit overly simplified), if a user clicks on the browsers back button I think the website navigation has suffered a catastrophic failure (in most cases). Why? Apart from user preference/habit (most cases) the user was forced to end their engagement with the website and engage the browser. Is the browsers back button our report card showing an F (most cases)?

[EVENT] - Boston IxDA F2F - PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE ATTENDING

Because we've had such an amazing response for our first F2F, we've had to
request a larger room at Bentley College. The Design and Usability Center is
not large enough to hold all 50 of us!

We will be meeting in the Adamian Center. Please print these
directions<http://ixd.debettencourt.com/Adamian%2520Directions.doc>to
the building, and look for room 143.
