Funny story, what can happened if programmer does interaction design (or doesn't do it)


We have functionality, what allows to user change input forms. Some time ago we decided that we need to export data to xml and it can be using input forms. So we found out that design was not needed this time because user interface didn't changed and programmer started to work. Deadline was close and programmer did it at weekend. On Monday I looked what he did purpose to test it (speed and everything).

Online tools (Possibly free ware) that we can use to create a knowledge base of glossary

Hi All

Merry Christmas ! I am currently working on a project that involves compiling glossary and acronyms used extensively across our company. I am looking for inputs from similar projects that you may be doing or have done in the past and that enables us to use a search engine that can help anyone locate a particular acronym or glossary term.

The challenge is to collaborate with various teams that can be part of the database and contribute to as a team.

Any information will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Review of the Cooper Communicating Design Course


Here's a review of the Communicating Design Course that I took two
weeks ago. I hope you find it helpful, if you're trying to convince
your boss that you need to take it: http://www.cooper.com/content/

I'd recommend to take the Interaction Design Practicum before this
course, even if you're an experienced designer, because a detailed
understanding of the GDD process helps to put things in the right
