en français -A problem?

RE: "start up a french-only discussion somewhere else" (see message received down below)

I understand what you mean but...

1) the web site here: http://interactiondesigners.com/index_fr.html (which makes THIS particular address important) gathers all the people that agrees on a single term (interaction designer). And I'm interested in exchanging with those professionals.

2) This web site also proposes to define and emplement the meaning and definition of the profession by the help of all.

Is Auto-Scrolling Good?

It's been a classic design principle that any scrollable view should
auto-scroll when an object is dragged outside or close to boundary of
the view.

Here's what Alan Cooper wrote in his "About Face" book:

"Auto-scroll is a very important adjunct to drag-and-drop. Wherever
the drop target can possibly be scrolled offscreen, the program needs
to auto-scroll.

IxD groups in RTP, NC?


I just moved to Durham, NC to design mobile interfaces and am wondering if if there are any IxD/usability people in RTP. Do you know of any active usability groups that get together in the area? Or perhaps people would just be interested in having a social and meeting other people?

If you are interested, send me an email.

I recently moved to Durham from Oakland CA. I have 7 years plus experience working as an interaction designer for Excite at Home, Actuate, among others.

statistical significance


To be honest, unless you've got just two audience segments (personas) then
I'd suggest you look at whether or not you can talk to all of them in some
form. Barring that, I'd suggest around 10 users per estimated persona. As a
minimum, I'd be aiming at 24-30.

I didn't realise I had multiple subscriptions either. Perhaps those who don't realise they've been added to the jobs list could see a different footer in job posts.

We're breaking up the band.

With one stop to go, attendees are telling us the UIE Web App Masters Tour is one of our best events ever. Application designers have found inspiration from our world-class experts. Fortunately, there's one more stop on the tour and you can be there too.

With each stop, the tour gets stronger and tighter and our last stop in Minneapolis on June 27-28 is sure to be our best.

Password masking in registration forms

Hi everyone -

Some context: I'm working on a redesign of a login & registration system for a large web site. User registration is required to post comments to stories, subscribe to newsletters and post media (photos, video) for public viewing only. No financial or private data is stored other than publicly posted information.

One of my personal goals is to reduce the amount of user anxiety and friction involved with registration.
