Expressing levels of achievement/reputation (eBay stars)

We all know eBay stars - different stars denote accumulated reputation
or "feedback score".

I like Ebay's colored star icon system because it's more elegant
and more subtle than, say, a "five star" hotel/restaurant system.
It's more like a karate belt color ladder.

But can levels be expressed in yet subtler ways? What other graphic
elements can be used?

In this research, we attempt to establish thresholds of detection for changes in a graphical user interface using adaptive tracking. For keyboard interactions, subjects did not notice delays of approximately 150 milliseconds. In contrast, for mouse interactions, subjects did not notice delays of up to 195 milliseconds.

Thoughts on UXmap

A few months ago I was looking for a local design consultancy in Japan, and had trouble finding one. I thought it would have been great if design and UX-related information is organized geographically. I came up with UXmap.com and began providing local UX information about consultancies, labs, vendors, conferences, education, associations, events, and jobs. I can see how it supports needs of both design and UX people as well as their stakeholders. What do you think? Is there a need for this?

Agile & UCD (was Thoughts on AlanCooper'sKeynote)

Ugh, that last part was worded wrong:

____
You could do this pre-work in time it takes to do 2-3 development sprints. But, you have explored more designs then you ever would have been able to in over a dozen development sprints.
____

That should have sad:
You could do this pre-work in time it takes to do 2-3 development sprints. Without this prework, it would take you over a dozen development sprints to explore the same design space.

what helped most in your career? : Dealing with criticism

Hi Everyone,

I've been following the original thread about "what helped most in your career?". Many of the posts are very very inspiring.

I have on spin-off question. How do you deal with the criticism? I'm not talking about polite constructive criticism. That I have no problem accepting & applying. But what about the down right harsh hurtful comments, by peers, managers, &/or end users, when you know you did/are doing the best you can at that time? We all know that some jobs/careers are just not right for some people.

2020 show and kinex

I saw it and thought they totally missed the point.
Kinex is a really great set of toys for people who
enjoy building things. The purpose of the toy is its
"complicated" assembly of the pieces and not the final
thing that it can do. Kinex is really something that
is a "hobbyist" toy and the user experience is the
building of it not the final product.
