We could start by vetting the IxDA job postings. We already screen
them for format; start screening them for content. I can't imagine
anyone on the board has the time to handle that responsibility
singlehandedly but perhaps some sort of group screening or flagging.
Make that part of the value proposition for designers searching for

Toward a search dominant wayfinding paradigm (worthit?)

I agree that large corporate (and .edu and .gov) websites should at least
seriously consider migrating to a search-centered strategy. Browsing rarely
scales well. Site search is increasingly a choice of first resort. And,
that's only when users don't parachute deep into the site via Google. This
means that every destination is also a gateway. We can enhance the value of
these findable and social objects through attention to IxD, IA and SEO.

Theming of Web Applications ..


I am curious to know what the groups thoughts are about allowing users to
theme a web application. I work for a medical company where it has been
proposed that users be able to change the colors of our flagship application
to whatever they want, mostly their corporate colors, and a logo. Prior to
my arrival, developers made it so that any and everything could be changed,
icon & button colors, text colors, background, headers, you name it.

Getting familiar witih Adobe AIR

I have about a week to figure out if Adobe AIR is a potential tool for
a new web portal I'm developing. I'm hoping it is, I'm looking
forward to using it.

For those of you who are familiar with it, do you think the best way
to get to know it is to set it up (I have no project funding yet but
I could do this at home), to read some of the "bibles" or are there
any good urls you know of? Being that I don't have a lot of time to
figure it out and then sell it, I'm looking for a good overview type
understanding but one with some depth.

Defining usability in the development process

Hey there,

I'm just starting a new gig as Usability Engineer. I've been asked to
present a overall development process that includes usability (yay!). For
example, this is where I come in, this is what I do, this is when the html
guy is in, here is where coding starts, etc etc. I have definite ideas about
this myself, but I would also love to see some thoughts as well. If anyone
has a document to share that I could use in brainstorming, that would be
really helpful. Please CC me at pixelmech at gee mail dot com.
