UX testing on social networks

As a commercial agency we are getting more and more UX design work in
the social network area. (which is good news)

One of the issues that we have come up against is how difficult it
can be to test the user experience on social network sites.

The way we use these sites evolves over time, so its not possible to
get a realistic assessment in a one hour user test.

IA Article: Rose by any other name...

The Boxes and Arrow archives seemed to be screwed up, so I'm posting a
response to this article here in the hopes it might in a round about
way get back to B&A.

The article can be found here:

I guess I'm left with two questions after reading this article:

1) If you replaced the word "information architect" and "IA" with
"interface designer" and "UI" would you have the same article?

Next NYC UPA event (1/17): Beyond Usability + IA Job Posting

NYC Usability Professionals Association presents:
Beyond Usability: It's Not Just the Interface

The presentation will cover how offline work impacts technology, interplays
with client dynamics and informs online usability issues. You will find out
why you can't just look at online usability, but also must consider whether
your work has improved upon the off-line lives of users.

When to go backwards

been an IA on the web for more than10 years. Back in the old days I was
considered a thought leader. We were making it up as we went along. We
were trailblazers. Well, time has passed and my ways are now old
school. I admit I haven't been developing at the same pace as the
industry has. I woke up recently and decided I have a lot to learn and
that I need to invest in my long term career development by both
brushing up on the fundamentals and keeping up with what's new. I
believe I am over-employed at the moment and I'm starting to struggle.
I think it's time to make a change.

How to Gather Emotional Response of Users

I'm currently involved in a research project in which I attempt to capture the 'wow', the 'good', the 'bad' and the 'ugly' moments of users' emotional response to application interfaces. I have been brainstorming around the possible ways of reaching out to our users who are mostly dispersed across the globe. The commonalities in terms of user persona, day to day tasks that are carried out using software applications, depends upon the context of use.

Hello all,

Would like to meet individuals interested in integrating interaction design + design communication. Specifically, designing and programming 2D graphical user interfaces dynamically linked to real time interactive 3D model (object and space).

Question about "scannable bar code" on a mobiledisplay

From: "Dante Murphy" <dmurphy at digitashealth.com>

: A client has asked about the feasibility of displaying a scannable bar
: code on a mobile device, like a cell phone or PDA.

<snip - other questions>
: Have you ever heard of or seen this in action?

In the UK, I have heard that you can buy train tickets for trains that depart from a specific station (Marylebone) and have a bar
code appear on your mobile device.
