Skip or not

I am working on a setup wizard for a consumer product. Somewhere
toward the end of the wizard we have a two-screen guided tutorial to
help users understand the main functions of the remove device (a
component of the product). My manager believes it is beneficial to
force users go through the tutorial and I am arguing to have a Skip
button available.

Since most users are not familiar with the remote, the tutorial
certainly becomes very useful to teach the person who set up the

FW: Labelling Progress Indicators [was Breadcrumbs]

Correct - this is a wizard, but with non-linear linking as per a shopping
experience hence there is no hierarchy but a broken down form with
dependencies i.e. you can't order a vehicle without a customer etc. Having
the whole form on one page would be unmanageable at best.

>Breadcrumbs normally show a hierarchical tree, not the cumulative
progression through steps.

Social Networking inside organization (Was: Reading group for Social Network theory?)

Hi there,

I am pulling this old thread to get some specific discussion along
social networking inside organizations. There is a lot of buzz out
there. MicroSoft SharePoint's new Beta has a good tool built in.

However, I am not sure in what context is it used inside
organizations. Do you guys have any stories to share? What points you
bring to address its "must have" case (as against "good to have").

I look at Social Networks inside enterprise along two dimentions --
talent management (identifying/retaining) and sales force
infrastructure (for operational efficencies).

Honoraria for remote usability study participants from multiple countries

I'm wondering how others offer compensation in remote usability
studies where participants are drawn from multiple countries. I've
been looking into PayPal, and we've used Amazon in the past but I'd
prefer not to tie people to a particular vendor/site.

What's next in my learning and how do I get it?

I thought I'd get people talking about what it is they are looking to learn and where they are hoping to learn it kinda question.

There's a lot of formal EDU in IxD being created all around the world, but obviously, not everyone can jump into a 1-2yr program. So my question is what do you think you need to learn to be a better practitioner of IxD and how do you want to learn it?

tomorrow, looking at how to keep experiences fresh, led by Christopher
Finlay. The amazing thing is that more than 1/3 of you attending are new
names and faces. This is an excellent way to get to know your fellow IxDers
in the area, and an easy way to get a dose of inspiration.
