Golden oldies: pre-web-era book recommendations

We have a lot of great communication and design-related books
published in last 15 years, but there are others from 30+ years ago
whose content still rings true. Sometimes they may speak even more
loudly than when they were first published and remind us that many
concepts we're exploring today aren't always so new after all.

Some like those from Marshall McLuhan, Edward de Bono, and
Christopher Alexander are still talked about and mentioned once and a

RE: [IxDA] ethics, training and HFI


Having worked with HFI and having been an integral team member at some point in my career, I am in complete agreement with Eric. HFI is a place where everyone breathes UX. They strive hard to bring UX to the industry.

I remember Eric mentioning in one of his talk to the staff - 'Whenever I go to any company in India, I meet people who have worked with HFI at some point. I am glad that we have been able to  educate people and spread Usability in the Industry'.

Re: intent-driven search

Hi Ben,

Isn't what you're talking about a "recommender system"?

This category of applications holds great promise for asynchronous social collaboration about the sorts of things you're talking about.

I've had the opportunity to hear Joseph Konstan of the University of Minnesota & CHI talk about his adventures in this market segment, but I haven't yet read his book, "Word of Mouse."

There's a lot of programming, yes, and there also needs to be a substantial amount of data, yours and others'.

"Recently Viewed" functionality..


Hi All,

Does anyone have any knowledge of the 'Recently Viewed' functionality being used on a more article based site rather than your typical ecom sites showing recent products?

Many thanks,

Chat link

At the risk of reopening the Twitter vs. IRC discussion, I'd like to
mention that Jeff Howard has been kind enough to set up a link to the
IxDA chat channel:


This link currently redirects to our #ixda channel on Freenode, but in
the future it might go somewhere else. The point is that if you want
to chat with other IxDA members in real time, that's the place to go.
Please consider including that link in Tweets or emails to the list as
an indication that you'd like to chat about your topic.

Content for a mobile site (cutting down content from web version)

Hello members,

the UX team is developing a mobile site (not responsive).

I, as a online campaign coordinator have to cut down content from the current website.

We have mobile phones on our pages with alot of marketing text, teaser text, product information etc.

My task is to decide on headlines for 4-5 toggles that will be clickable and the content for each toggle.

Do any of you have experience with developing content for a mobile site? Also, do you have any great examples to share?

The (design) process

"What if there were no stop signs... and a major corporation was charged
with inventing one?"

Fun stuff. Reminds me a bit of the "Microsoft designs the iPod packaging"

Overview and Examples of Visualization Methods

This site has a very nice overview of different visualization methods.
Ironically I don't think the periodic table metaphor actually aids
understanding of the content of the page at all, but the examples are really
