Req: Reference on readability of centered vsleft-justified text

Paul,

Not exactly, but here is a reference to a website for a book that
does discuss text alignment.

Best,
Jack

buy-in, consensus,etc. (was RE: Powerpoint vs. "regular" slides)

Dave Heller wrote:

> "buy-in" is what I'm trying to achieve, not consensus

Excellent point. When I say "consensus", this is really what I mean.
I guess I'm accustomed to communicating with stakeholders, where
one facilitates buy-in by calling it "achieving consensus". :^)

I'm in no way in favor of design by committee, but am in favor of
bringing stakeholders into alignment with design decisions, via
whatever rhetorical means work best.

Should I go for a concept mapping tool like CMaptools or Mind Manager - if
yes, which one would you recommend? If not, what strategies do you follow?

Thanks,

Your Application Looks Like Poo

I've been wrestling with this and I thought I would put it out there and gauge some opinions.

At 360|Flex I presented a session directed at application (Flex) developers aimed to inspire them to improve their application design skills.  It was part inspirational and part instructional as I went through basic design principles they should be aware of.

International Visits: Meet Susan Dray

Pam Migliore wrote to the ixdg list with a query (below) about international
customer visits. I've had the pleasure of knowing Susan Dray and David
Siegel of Dray & Associates for nearly twenty years. They are incredibly
experienced with international usability research and have been teaching
about it at CHI and UPA for as long as I know them.

Combining form and function

Or rather, playing on words in a rather impressive way.

Political views aside (sorry for bringing up such a hot-button topic),
I can only applaud the marvelous design job. If these become popular,
the same street vendors who sell fake Oakleys at every NYC
intersection will be peddling these flip-flops.
