Domain Driven Design conflicts with CoopersInteraction Design...


Good questions. I must admit that I'm new to the concepts of
Domain-Driven Design, but here's my initial reaction.

Bruce's response is pretty consistent with my experience: The way most
people think about the world (their mental model) is very different than
a well-designed data structure. The unfortunate reprocussion of this is
that (especially on products designed by engineers) data structures are
are often designed first, and then user interfaces are built so that
they reflect the underlying database architecture.

PDF form v. HTML

I'm looking for information on the pros and cons of using a PDF form
to enter information that will feed into a database, versus a plain
old HTML form.

I don't have any experience with online PDF forms but my gut feeling
is that they might be less accessible and possibly harder to use
because of font issues and the like. Any thoughts?

DC Area Event: IA Salon TONIGHT!

[Please forgive the cross-posting.]

For several years, the DC-area information architecture group DCIA ran
a reading group. We see an enormous opportunity to expand this regular
event. The IA Salon is the next stage of evolution. Think of the salon
as the reading group without all that pesky reading.

Meet up with friends and colleagues at 7pm at the Mayorga in Bethesda
for an informal discussion.

Large scale survey: SUS, NPS or ...?

I have an opportunity to survery a very large number of users before the release of a new version in January. I was considering using the net promoter survey but then read some articles that were critical of NPS. The release is on a particular page of a web app and will grab the users while using that specific tool. I've used SUS in the past but typically with internal users that are not critical enough.

Looking for IxD Case Studies

I'm looking for interaction design case studies, preferably those
that are simple, public, and that have this basic format:

1) Problem, like a product isn't working well or doesn't exist.
2) Interaction design goodness is applied.
3) Product is better/good.

They don't have to be long or involved. Please, no iPod suggestions.

Oh, and they should be able to appear in an interaction design book
(wink, wink), so if your company/client would be unhappy sharing a
success story, don't bother.

I'd be happy to share these all with the list as well, whether or not
I use them.
