I can think of one instance of this in some user testing I did some years ago.

Visual design manual for a software

Hi, 

I need to create a visual design manual as part of a user interface guideline document for a software. Does anyone have any pointers? It would be great with some examples. Thus far I have only found corporate branding manuals online... And those are mostly describing letterheads and other printed material.

User Recruiting Firm suggestions

My company (Lakamo Recruiting) specializes in Usability recruiting.
One of the most important criteria for Usability recruiting is having
recruiters who understand what Usability does, why it differs from
Focus Groups, and what are the challenges inherent to Usability
recruiting.

Smaller companies that get to know your recruiting needs will usually
do a better job. It is much more personal and the recruiters are paid
to think, not just to sit in a room dialing.

XP: Extreme Programming & Product Usability

They don't fit in. :)

Here's why:

XP relies on a "customer" to decide which features should be implemented
and when. A "customer" may be a product/project manager, customer service
employee, a marketing resource, etc.

A different approach

Touch screen application interfaces have been following a common frame design for quite sometime now.
When i got an oppurtunity to work on couple of similar projects, 1st thing i did was i started observing the way people interact with the devices. I went through most of the similar applications.
As i was going through, lot of questions came in my mind. Few were like.

1. Technology has grown so much, isn't the practice of interaction with it also has grown?

Standards for power indication, LEDs?

Anyone know of a standard for power indications on equipment?

Specifically, I'm looking for any international standards that discuss
LED color, state, etc. for when a device is:

1) Connected to mains and ON

2) Connected to mains and OFF

3) Connected to mains and POWER SAVING

If there are standard iconography for these things, I'd like to know
about the references as well...
