Re: [IxDA] I have a dream UX job, here is what i did to get it

So you're saying there's nothing to be learned from the experiences of other people? Then why even have a "discussion board"?

Seems a bit self-contradictory :-)

Is beauty too deep?

In my readings about aesthetics (thanx everyone for the great suggestions),
I noticed a concentration on "beauty". Now I know from the formal side of
the aesthetics community aesthetics is almost the philosophy of beauty. A
noble academic goal indeed. But this line of reasoning feels a bit too
academic and hard to make tangible into my day to day.

I wonder if "beauty" is not really the right noun to be thinking about and I
wonder what word would best replace it with something as all encompassing,
but less intangible.

retry: what is your favorite mobile/touch web site?

What web sites do you use on your iPhone/Opera Mobile/Pocket IE/
Skyfire device? Which ones do you think are well designed? Why?

I'm not looking for design recommendations here, but sites that you

Survey regarding interaction design graduate education is still open.

Hi folks,

If you can spare 20min of your time, I'd really appreciate a bunch
more responses to my survey on interaction design graduate

While it is complex and long, I think it can help us all better
understand the needs of interaction design education. I plan on
making the data public later in the month of December.

Both educators and hiring managers can really benefit from this
information as interaction design matures and need for better trained
interaction designers increases.

You can find it at http://bit.ly/IxDEDU

Thank you,

surfacing scattered bits of information

I'm working on a health-related project in which users will see information
about a set of conditions/diseases. For each condition, different kinds of
information is provided, including preventive information. The preventive
info itself will consist of a set of recommendations, each consisting of a
header and then a paragraph or more of explanatory text. The recommendations
themselves are grouped into different categories (clinically proven,
promising, early diagnosis, etc.).

Now, I want to enable the user to select any one recommendation and add it
to an action tracker elsewhere.

Time Entry

I've scoured the pattern libraries for various methods of entering
time of day into a form and have come up empty. I need to determine
the most efficient way for a user to enter a specific time. Options
include a single field, multiple fields (hours, minutes), single or
multiple spinners, or multiple menus. If anyone has other
suggestions, has seen examples, or would just like to offer an
opinion, I'm all ears.
