look and feel

There is an interesting editorial and follow up discussion regarding the
term 'look and feel' - at the design observer (mostly a graph design blog).
I have used the term many times when speaking to clients. To me it is
everything about the site that is visual, except for the interactions.

Concept drawings? "prototypes"?


This is an article in wired.com about concept drawings for NASA and other
space agencies.

The reason I bring it here, is to point out an example of where
non-working-prototypes are valuable total product lifecycle process.

The artist put it this way:

"Conceptual space art provides the initial glimpse at what could be," said

large tables and lists with lots of columns - where are the best practices?

Hello, I’m looking for some good practice on designing tables and lists for a corporate web site.
The challenge is how to simplify very long tables of articles (technical parts) with lots of parameters (columns).
I do have the Edward Tufte books and know that part of the story. But at this moment I’d rather study some real life examples available on the net. Anyone? Thanks!

Alert Fatigue

Dear Professors
Hello, and thanks for any help ahead of time.
I am a Medical Informatics student at OHSU and right now I am in a research
methods class at my institution: Geisinger.
For My project I wanted to investigate Alert Fatigue, suffering, myself,
from the condition.
So far most of what I can document comes from high-risk industries like
nuclear power, aerospace and the military. There is very little data in the med
informatics literature.
As I begin the topic though, I can find very little nomenclature defined
Is there taxonomy of alerts?

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?

...and don't forget to laugh

While in pursuit of the simple, the
clear, the intuitive, the new, I'd like to give whimsy, surprise, and um, the warm embrace of stupidity, their due.

No matter the domain, – virtual or tangible, high tech or high touch,
interfaces or environments, – innovative thinking is accompanied by the opportunity to twist toward one of four emotional
outcomes: the aha! (scientific knowing),
the ah! (aesthetic experience), the ha ha! (humorous relief) and the duh? (what
I’ll call “blessed stupidity”).
