Re: [IxDA] Coming soon: IxDA's new job board, powered by Coroflot

As a long-time user of this list, I'm going to voice my approval of the Board's decision and say this is a welcome change. This list was never set up to be a job board, as helpful as that is to some. When 10% or more of the posts are job listings, it creates an unacceptable level of noise to be filtered out. And I think we can all agree that the list is quite noisy already.

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

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.

Online Newspapers as Wikis

Hi guys,

Long time lurker but first time poster. I'm usually a bit too shy to
post but I'd really love to hear people's opinions on a project I'm
working on at the moment.

The main concept of the project is to foster involvement of the
general public in the daily news cycle, and ultimately to improve the
print edition of newspapers through a combination of reader
participation and traditional journalism.

Agile & UCD (was Thoughts on Alan Cooper's Keynote)

Hi Ambrose:

That is wonderful! We need many more software architects and
developers with passion for UX.

I think that what you are saying is on-target. I would only add a
couple of points:

1. Some aspects of product development are, and probably always will
be, "waterfall." I was trying to make that point in another thread.
For example, you have fund --> design/build -->release in almost any
business. There are Ux elements in all of them. So I think that we
will always be dealing with some form of hybrid models with waterfall
elements and agile elements.

textual user data: workflows? tools?

I'm fairly new to UX and very new to UX research.  I'm working on a research project involving hundreds of user interviews, so we will have several hundred textual transcripts to sort through and derive meaning from.  I haven't seen the data or interview questions yet, so I don't have a lot of information to share here.

Silverlight pattern library

This post is to request that M$ make a (public) pattern library for
Silverlight. And, to ask that if someone knows of one they can share it with

The problem so far: I'm researching Silverlight and the substantial part of
it seems to be buried in *applications that require install*. I do not have
admin rights in M$ Vista, so I cannot see the work, thus I cannot evaluate
it, thus I cannot share it, and it is not easy for my team to make the case
for working with it.

I remember years ago when I could simply go to the MSDN section for Common
Controls and share those proto-design patterns.
