My new webpage

Hello members,
I have changed the content of my webpage www.amroha.dk
At the moment I am scanning all my projects and also uploading pictures of
my family and I. This means that none of these are available at the site.
BUT please let me know what you think of the colours chosen and style etc.
With regards to links, I can paste your webpage beneath the 'Stuff about
Interaction Design....' if you want me to.

Please critize, praise, comment do whatever you want. After all I want my
users/readers to be pleased >)

Worst Login/Password/Forgot Password Process Ever?

Ever try to login to the UPA website?

Haven't in a while and forgotten your password?

They actually expect me to remember my UPA number to retrieve my

Who designed this? A grass-smokin' monkey? This is the UPA, not the MIT
Alumni Association!

Everyone already knows that the simplest thing is to allow people to select
using their email address as their username. This is common knowledge. UPA
expects me to remember a random numeric string that I have used -- what? 4
times in the last 3 years.

Designers: Show Your Work Fast, Cross-Browser & Without Flash Using Black Tonic

I can see how this would be useful for my wire frame presentations.

Need user data on iPhone adoption by age

I know, a really general request, but here goes:

An assertion was made to me that teens (specifically both genders age
12-18) are not adopting iPhones because they're used to being able to
text without looking at the phone - essentially typing by feel and
relying on the predictive typing software in the phone to get it

Product Company Entrapreneurs (apologies for cross posting)

As a fund-raising fool, I attend a lot of SV networking events for
entrepreneurs. There are plenty of them. I meet marketers, engineers,
business folks... but never any designers or folks with design
backgrounds (unless it's Frank Ramirez.) This might be my luck, or it
might be a trend. I'd like to hear from folks why you think this
happens? why don't more ID's, Interaction designers, etc become product
company CEO's? And yes, I've heard of 37 signals... but even they took
a different outsider path.

Handling Timezones and DST


I'm wondering how you guys have designed or implemented time zones and DST in your web application projects? Do you guys give the users the option to use DST - if so, where do you base the DST difference?

Fields order in a job form

Hi everybody,

I'm wondering how to order fields in a job search form.

My first guess was to place the fields in the following order:

1- Keywords
2- Job
3- Area
4- Experience
5- Type of Contract

According to my client, the right way is to put the keywords field at the

On the other hand, it seems to me that user prefers to search by keywords,
rather than from a job drop-down list.
