[EVENT] - Boston IxDA F2F - PLEASE READ IF YOU ARE ATTENDING

Because we've had such an amazing response for our first F2F, we've had to
request a larger room at Bentley College. The Design and Usability Center is
not large enough to hold all 50 of us!

We will be meeting in the Adamian Center. Please print these
directions<http://ixd.debettencourt.com/Adamian%2520Directions.doc>to
the building, and look for room 143.

Why beauty matters to IxD (a blog compilation)

Awhile back a question was put to the ixda list: does aesthetics/
beauty matter to IxD?

I've finally compiled on my blog some key thoughts on this, which date
back to 2001 while writing my graduate thesis at CMU about beauty as
an experiential value of user-product interactions (and iterated in
various papers/talks I've given at IDSA, IA Summit, and most recently
last fall's World Design Congress in SF).

I hope ixda readers find this compilation thought-provoking and
useful...

effect of color on Web sites

*"Color is one of the most important non-verbal forms of communication.
Appropriate use of color greatly impacts user experience" [world usability
day]

Can someone please point me to research done **to understand color
associations for different kinds of e-commerce websites? e.g. selling
clothing, shoes, furniture, beauty products. Or effect of color on websites
designed specifically for a demographic group - sport fans, women etc?

Thanks,
Oliver

"Usability Meets TV Advertising?"

OK, it's a new year but an old problem:

<http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/blog.asp?blogID=1694&trk=blog>

"Experience from overseas (notably the UK) and some activity here in the US
suggests that as far as interactive advertising is concerned..."

What exactly is the "UK experience" mentioned here?

Looking for a "scrolling" navigation

Hi All,

I'm trying to find an example of a navigation that scrolls down a
webpage as the user does. For example, let's say we have a page that
has a main content area and a left nav. When the user scrolls the page
down, I'd like the left nav to slide into view as soon as they stop
scrolling. It will always display at the top left of the section of the
page they are viewing. I know I've seen this somewhere, but I can't
find it.
