Re: [IxDA] Why is Drupal is a Good Choice for a Community Website?

Finding the right content management system is always a difficult challenge. None of them are perfect. Finding a decent open source CMS can be even more challenging because they're being produced voluntarily by people whose main enjoyment is programming, not user experience. I've been working with Plone for over a year now and I can't image Drupal being any worse. And since IxDA has essentially no budget, open source is the natural choice. So while Drupal may not be perfect, is there a better open source solution? I doubt it.

[Event] IxDA NYC presents UX Show and Tell with Chris Avore

IxDA NYC is pleased to present

UX Show and Tell with Chris Avore

UX Show and Tell is a casual workshop that’s all about the work, where you
get feedback on your UX, IA and IxD deliverables from practitioners instead

and researchers by sharing solutions with those who are showing work.

Well, since we're reviving this discussion... ;-)

For situations we're talking about here (required field) that may be the desired situation.

I remember when we designed forms for the UK Inland Revenue (tax) we choose to have all radio buttons in an initial blank state and make them required.

Case studies in online portfolios (was: Are online portfolios useful?)

While interviewing, I used an illustrated case study (pics of
deliverables, diagrams, and screens) to answer that crazy question:
"tell me a little bit about your process".

It was an illustrated walkthrough, plus the text of the case study
acted like notes, so I didn't forget anything important.
