Re: user requirements vs business requirements

I think these reqs have to start out completely
separate. Most business owners, esp in a
corporation, do not have the pulse on the detailed
needs of users, nor should they. They have a high
level overview of "what the market needs" but that's
Get a representative sample of the key business owners
in a room to discuss the bottom line. They should be
reps of marketing/finance/new biz/etc.


Part-time/Flexible HCI/IxD courses

Hello everyone,

I'm very interested in interaction/UX design that I'd like to do this full time. After reading books like "About Face", "What makes them click", "Why we love or hate everyday things"..etc I started developing solutions for issues I had in mind, with the purpose of practicing design in general. 

To work in this field full time, I was advised to enroll in a program. However, I'd like to keep my full time job in Dublin while studying.

Column Width in a Browser App

Hi All,

I've a need to reduce the column width in a browser App.
The values of the column will never exceed 3 digit numbers.
But the column header is a big word of 12 characters.
[Eg. Deliverables]

I feel the column simply occupies more space than required
and in some cases I could avoid horizontal scroll just by
reducing the width. I can't:
-use an abbreviated word [not a common practice for that word],
-use an image icon [Though image is well defined throughout the app]
-wrap the content since it is one word.

Is it OK to use truncated word [Del...] like this.

ADMIN: CSS2 books & Pen-based tools (summary request)

Admin request:

This is a great thread!

I was wondering if someone would be willing to summarize this thread and
the thread about pen-based tools, and enter them into the IxDA Library.

I think threads like these are great opportunities for us to collect
some knowledge and the Resource Library is a great area for us to not
only do referencing, but also engage in conversations about those
references in the standard blog like way.

No need to chime in here, but just do it.
