Examples of complex checkbox treeviews

We have a thick desktop app that uses a checkbox treeview to show data
layers that are available to display in a separate window. However,
although Checkboxes look nice and consistent in this display they are
the wrong control to use in some cases. A checkbox implies that more
than one data layer can be chosen, however some data layers are mutually
exclusive, others are not. On first pass it struck me that either the
checkboxes should only appear next to those data layers that are
inclusive and disappear when a mutually exclusive one is chosen.

Value of utesting a client driven marketing site.

I'm currently working at an agency and am trying to figure out the
value of utesting in this environment. Our current process does not
include utesting of any sort. It's mostly client-driven design through
back and forth conversations.

For the client I'm working with, the site basically markets a product.
The creative thinking revolves around the marketing objective of
making their products appear to be top quality.

IxDA Network

If IxDA is a community-driven organization, how do the various parts
fit together? And what is our governance model?

At our recent retreat, the Board spent some time working on these
questions. The result is a model that we're calling IxDA Network.

This model, which builds on the Manifesto I posted earlier this week,
is probably best explained in the slideshow that we put together. You
can view the slideshow here:


Take a look at the presentation.

[PLUG]A new UX blog...just what the world needs!

Thanks to Whitney Hess, whose presentation on "Evangelizing Yourself"
motivated me to finally start a blog.

My first post is an editorial response to Jared Spool's panel at the
Ix09 conference, which asked where will we find the 10,000 new
interaction designers we need to meet the expected growth in our field.
Here's the link:


I would love to hear any feedback, whether as a comment on the site, a
message here, or a private e-mail.

Web 2.0 primer.

I've been buried in the mobile world for the past year and before that was buried in business reporting and sql editors.

I'm interested in the Web 2.0 but Web 2.0 seems to be a rather vague description of many different types of technologies and apps. I know some pieces, like Ajax, but I'd like to learn more and get a quick overview of what's going on in the Web 2.0 space.

Where's a good place to start learning about Web 2.0?

Atlanta needs a local IxDA group!

I think it's time to set up a local Atlanta IxDA group! That's
especially true since there's a lot of great work going on in Atlanta,
and the 2008 IxDA conference taking place in (relatively) nearby

We already have a related group[1] that started out with an IA
orientation, but it really covers a range of UX disciplines. Whether
you're interested in that, or you want to set up a separate IxDA
Atlanta group, speak out, and we'll see where interest takes us.

Alternatives to Account Creation

Have any of you seens examples of alternative account creation with the traditional email + password combination? I've heard of just entering an email, but I'm curious how that impacts the flow or how those accounts are managed.

Usability testing a build and supplementing it with paper mocks

I'm currently in the process of usability testing a build. The build
consists of a lot of functionality but some of those parts are not
connected to the main navigation. People can still access the
functionality but not from the correct places.

I'm considering providing the user tasks to complete and filling in
the missing flow pieces with paper mocks.
