simplistic, contextual interfaces" and the Web's move to the
Contextual, AJAX-based UIs

RE: [IxDA] Speaker for a Usability lecture at a large corporate event?

Hi Deb,

Can you describe the audience for this talk? Will your speaker address financial institution senior management, product managers, software developers, designers, all of the above? What is the purpose of the talk? What's the occasion? Defining the audience and purpose will help us make more meaningful recommendations for a speaker.

Easy to use vs. feature packed

I am looking for any studies that compare software applications in the same market space in regards to user purchase decisions. Specifically I am looking to understand the impact of adding features vs. making a product easy to use. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

RE: pictures of design labs/design rooms

I am looking for pictures of design rooms from creative design firm or design groups in software development companies. Examples would be the design room at Adobe, Peoplesoft, etc.

Basically I am looking for pictures of happy designers collaboratively brainstorming around tables with whiteboards, large sketchpads and hanging their sketches/ideas/brainstorming on corkboards.

Anybody have any? I am trying to build a business case for having a design room and need some pictures to illustrate.
