New classes in NYC from SmartEx

Smart Experience is a new school in New York City offering
classes for Internet professionals. We intend to cover
state-of-the-art topics taught by the most experienced people in
town. The school is organized as a marketplace, so you can tell
us what classes you want us to offer, and what classes you want
to teach. Learn more... http://smartexperience.org/

You'll notice we don't yet have any classes focused on
interaction design.

[Possible Spam] RE: Re: "Intuitive" designs can be cumbersome

Not to sidetrack this interesting conversation, but are any of you
familiar with the system described at www.muse.com? The description is
pretty vague I think, but they seem to be describing an adaptive
(andragogical I'd call it. Does this term apply?) UI for a collaborative
music app of some kind. I guess they've shown it off in some San
Francisco clubs. Just wondering if anyone's seen it in action.

Re: Reset Button Icon

RE: Reset Button Icon

If you're stuck in finding an icon do revisit the task flow and
the task goal, see if you can find alternate routes or solutions.

Also, consider an On-screen button.

Best,
Dan

Feature control on user interfaces

Hi All,

As applications grow, so does the demand for new features. I am curious
about two things. In the industry:

[1] What methods are used to determine the most "used" features as opposed
to the most "wanted" features?
[2] How often is this process repeated?

Any pointers will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Oliver

Field research question

Our user interface team is seeking information from those who have
conducted user research field studies - in particular, research and
interviews within people's homes.

For instance:
- How often have you conducted such studies?

- What examples can you point to as key benefits to doing field research?
(over lab-based near equivalents)?

- What kinds of problems have you encountered when doing such research?

Is this the future of interaction design?

Gesture Recognition - Designing for NUIs

When designing "apps" for gesture recognition, what is most appropriate to use? A UML User Flows or a Service Design Blueprint?

Any insight or suggestions are helpful!

Cheers,

good read: Jonathan Ive on The Key to Apple's Success

"We try not to bring out another product that's just different," he said.
"'Different' and 'new' is relatively easy. Doing something that's genuinely
better is very hard."

Your tool recommendations: research & design documentation

Having recently moved back into a research and design management role, I'd like to ask the group for recommendations on how to easily manage design research and design documentation. 

To my knowledge there is no "one tool to rule them all." In the past I've typically cobbled together solutions from piece parts; e.g., Basecamp, Jira/Confluence, Lighthouse, etc. for requirements and design documentation; Pivotal Tracker or Jira for work item and issue tracking.
