Creating coherent user experiences across many independent data-driven sites

Hi all,

So I'm working on an intranet project for an organization providing access
to a set of in-house catalogs, research tools, and 80+ subscription-based
databases. Users run the gamut from newbies to professional researchers
within the organization. The role of the site we're working on is mostly to
provide a user-friendly gateway to the assets with as much context and help
as possible.

Federated search is available but only contains a small subset of the
assets. We have limited (read: none whatsoever) control over the assets

Use Case Modeling


I was wondering which kind of setup you use for writing use cases? Do you use a simple Word template or tools like Visual Use Case 2009?

Right now I am using Word for writing and Omnigraffle for doing the diagrams. But there hast to be a better and more efficient way..

Edge Case Scenarios (was: the alignment of the practices and outcomes of IA and IxD)

Riddle me this: Great designers design systems for the majority (85%,
80/20, 90/10, etc.). So, why are the great designers of the fields of
practice of IA and IxD arguing over edge cases?

All this bickering about the difference of IA/IxD, or why people
aren't UX Designers, but are IAs or IxDs is an argument for 0.001%.

ADMIN: Technical Difficulties

Hello there folks,

I must apologize as there have been some technical difficulties this past
week (Aug 30th till Sept 5) regarding the list. Many might have noticed that
some e-mails they had sent did not come back or they were expecting
responses from others that didn't come through.

What occured was that moderation requests from the list were not coming to
me and thus not being dealt with.

Interaction '10 Conference iPhone app. survey Requesting your input

Hey everyone,

My name is Austin Brown. I am a Senior Industrial Design Student at
Savannah College of Art & Design, and minoring in Interaction Design.

My group and I are working on creating an iPhone app for the
Interaction '10 Conference as a project in our Interactive Product
Design class. We want the conference and the app to be all about you
all, so we need your input.

The survey is meant to be a breeze, so don't think to hard about it,
and definitely don't work too hard on it. We're not looking for
statistically meaningful results so much as opnions, feelings, ideas,

interaction & data entry before log-in?

Can anyone give examples of websites where users are able to enter
information prior to log-in or becoming a member of the site? Users
would then be prompted to do so when moving to another section of the
site in order to have their data saved. Does anyone know if there is
the capability to show similar prompting when a user types in another
web address or goes to closeout the browser window. We are trying to
address a business requirement.

Any pointers, examples, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Chicago IxDA Social Event: Wednesday, September 12th

After some behind-the-scenes planning with some great local IxDA-ers, we can
now say Chicago has a local IxDA group!

While we plan on having topic-driven, interactive monthly events starting
Wednesday, October 10th (more to come on that, stay tuned!), we wanted a
chance to meet each other before then.
