Determining Location

We have several features on our site that are location dependent -- as one
example, we only sell certain products in certain regions. Currently, we ask
people to click on a region in a world map.

We're currently looking at MaxMind:


(was that accurate for you?)

We aren't thinking of relying solely on the results of that in every
context, just trying to make some smarter display decisions.

Two questions:

1.) Does anyone have any experience using any of these services??
ip2location? Maxmind?

[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
of stakeholders.

Because let's face it: even the most involved practitioners of the UX
community have few places to share work with other helpful colleagues in a
face to face environment.

Even if you don't have something to show, help your fellow IA's, designers,
and researchers by sharing solutions with those who are showing work.

The Format
There will be three rooms to

Analyzing usability testing notes

Hello folks!

I'm trying to find a better way to do usability test analysis.

My current approach is: after i finish a usability study, with 8 or 10
users, and collected my own and all observers' notes, I usually read all
notes and then immediately write down the issues I feel area appearing
more often (assuming my brain will remember issues that are repeated in
many notes more than issues than appear only once).

Now, how do YOU approach analyzing those notes? Reading and re-writing
by heart? Putting all notes on a wall and eye-balling?

Primary Navigation Research & Best Practices

Has there been any research or best practices posted around Primary

Specifically I want to find out:
1) The benefit of duplicating a primary navigation link as the first
link in its drop-down. (Example: You have a primary navigation item
labeled “Solutions” and when you hover over it a drop-down appears
that has its first link called “Overview” which takes the user to
the same page as clicking the “Solutions” link)

2) Expected consistency of using drop-downs with primary navigation

persona is a tool to "feel the pain" of the activity

What is the goal of persona creation?

To a large extent it's a framing tool. Persona creation is a tool to "feel
the pain" of the activity, to empathize with the users. The research, which
goes into creation of personas does not contradict, and actually may
complement the activity centered design process.

Creation of personas are not necessary (or "useful"), when
*everyone*involved in the design already feels the pain of the
activity for which the
product is designed.
