Offtopic: What music do you listen to while you

I CAN'T listen to vocal music while I'm concentrating on something else. Well, cooking maybe. But not thought work. I occasionally listen to instrumental music of various sorts, but mostly I go back to (relative) silence.

UXnet NYC summary and call for others to comment (i.e. Memory help)


The above link is to my pretty weak blog entry about the UXnet event I
organized earlier this week.

I was talkin' a lot and not takin' good notes as I should have been if I
wanted to blog about it, so I put up some cursory notes, and would love for
people to fill in the blanks with their own thoughts and summaries in the
comments area.

Decidedly true, although I would posit that the PhD degrees in both
fields are (and probably should be) focused on research, on advancing
the knowledge base of both fields.

Agile & UCD (was Thoughts on Alan Cooper's Keynote)

Hi Ambrose:

That is wonderful! We need many more software architects and
developers with passion for UX.

I think that what you are saying is on-target. I would only add a
couple of points:

1. Some aspects of product development are, and probably always will
be, "waterfall." I was trying to make that point in another thread.
For example, you have fund --> design/build -->release in almost any
business. There are Ux elements in all of them. So I think that we
will always be dealing with some form of hybrid models with waterfall
elements and agile elements.

I'm not sure I know the context in which you are describing manufacturing
here Peter, because the cost of manufacturing software also includes an
equivalent "tooling" up period which is development, testing and everything
else related to building application

One sheeter help with persona

Hi folks,

I'm working on a one-sheeter (http://www.iaonesheeters.com/iaonesheeters.asp)
for Personas. I having a bit of trouble writing the "who uses them" section.
Personas can be pretty much used by everyone, from business owners to
marketers to testers. I need a couple of concise paragraphs to suggest that
in an informative way but I keep striking out (must be Friday)! Maybe a
couple of specific examples would help. Anyone have any ideas?

Mozilla Weave, the browser stepping to onlnie service it's self

Hi guys:
no double, the weave is some interesting step to lead the firefox going
futhur, and it's also interesting, it mentions "enhancing user experience"
and adopt persona/senario style use case.
Quite interesting to see how it'll go.
