Just read that Tim Brown will be in Singapore - http://designthinking.ideo.com/?p=506#content and he wrote:

"I am off to Singapore in a week for my first visit. I have been invited by the government to give a talk on design thinking and meet with various government and business leaders to talk about the role of design thinking at a national level."

Cultural change is the first job of most design managers ...

I received the below message. I bet Jakob Nielsen gets a gazillion of such
e-mails every day. Anyway, the gist of it is ... "How dare you claim to lead
us if your site looks like such crap?" Like I said, I bet Jakob gets a
gazillion of these every day.

So after my message is my response tot his person. The gist of that is to
say ...

Back Button: How to design for it?

My team and I have been running into the problem where our developers are
seeking to disable a user's ability to use the browser's back button.
Reason being, that pressing the back button in a web application runs the
risk of multiple submissions.

Has anyone had to deal with this type of situation and what were the
solutions or compromises?

Any guidelines/design patterns etc.. on when a downloadable format ( such as pdf/word/ppt) is appropriate compared to creating a webpage?

Hi everyone,

I would appreciate if anyone could point to me to any guidelines /
design patterns or some source on when a downloadable format ( such as
pdf / word /ppt) is a better option compared to creating a webpage.

For example, a website that talks about policies which are large
documents , it would be best if people are able to download the policy
and review it.

Or if its about a particular process, it would be best if they are
able to download the process and use the printed document to reference
while doing the process.

Any help you could provide will be much appreciated.

Thank You

Sorting with the word "The"

Can anyone offer an answer as to why iTunes disregards leading "The"s when
sorting Artist names (putting "The Fall" right next to "Fats Waller") but
puts all the "The"s together when sorting by song titles?

(By the way, I agree with the iTunes person-name sorting approach, advocated
in High Fidelity, where artist names are sorted in the order of the words in
the name (not by "lastname, firstname") since many pop artists' names are
made up anyway.
