Brick and Mortar vs. Online

An observation. I recently attended a Christmas tree lighting ceremony held on the main street of my town. We parked several blocks away due to street closings so I had plenty of opportunity to recognize all the businesses on our way to the tree (a main reason for holding these events downtown). The first business I noticed caught my eye because of the beautiful landscaping and architecture. I looked around and spotted a name, Omni something or another. I thought, what do they do, their office looks nice, but no where on the building or door did it say what they did.

Online Content Comsumption Pattern for 30-40 yr olds

I will like to hear from anyone who has done research on or knows the behavioral pattern of 30-40 year olds and their use of news/stories online. I am particularly interested in how they approach such content, what they do with it (e.g. share with friends), what content are they likely to approach and consume (hot topics, gossips, etc), what form of content (shorts, trailers, long, etc), etc.

Re: [IxDA] Username vs. Screen Name

Are you asking about the concept or the labeling?

For the concept, there are valuable "identity" consideratinos from social design patterns at http://habitatchronicles.com/2008/10/the-tripartite-identity-pattern/.

For the labeling, I understand "username" as authentication, and "screenname" as display, which despite bound to the same person, must be kept separate for many reasons you can read on that link above.

Good luck!

Touch screen with buttons, drop-downs in touch screen

Hi !

This is my first posting here, I’ve enjoyed reading many discussions in the past, so be gentle :)

Nr 1. Right now we are discussing back and fourth the use of buttons in addition to touch screen. I should mention that we do not have strict accessibility requirements, it is not a product for open spaces, where all tactile feedback is important.
