Core Values for UCD and Agile


I am currently working on my master's thesis. To succeed, I will require
your help. The thesis will analyze possible interfaces between User
Centered Design and agile software development. As it is not possible to
provide a one-fits-all process those interfaces will serve as connection
points which will enable agile processes to encase UCD methods.
Approaches in this direction already exist, but validation is scarce.

The fields have a lot in common, but the more I learn about them the
more differences I spot.

Design Council description of ID (Round II)

Thanks to Danny Bluestone for pointing it out, but the link didn't work,
probably as a result of the link auto wrapping in a plain text email. Now
sent as an HTML email instead which will hopefully make this email more

If you only receive plain text and the link does wrap, then copy the first
line of the link and paste it into the address bar of your browser, then
copy the second line of the link and paste it into the address bar,
appending the second to the end of the first to make one long URL.

Your First UX / ID Job -- Q from the HCI Class of\'09.

My first UX job was doing usability work on Windows 95 and Internet Explorer
1.0 back in 1994.

Looking backwards I wish I could have given myself the following advice:

1) Pick your manager. Early in my career I made choices that put the role
and the project ahead of who I'd be working for. It took years for me to
figure out I was happier, more effective, and grew more only when my boss
was a good manager. A good manager will hire good people, will set clear
goals, will teach you what they know, and will set you up to be happy (e.g.
kick ass).

Inline styles and the people who hate them

Sorry about the sensationalist subject line. I couldn't resist.

For the past six months I've been building a massive, consumer Web
application. I took over the development from a guy who was keen on
standards-compliant XHTML (yay!) and keeping every style rule in an external
CSS document (kinda yay). This worked great up until I hit line 6000 of the
external CSS doc and Dreamweaver started choking a little each time I saved.

Then I began grouping pages of the site into sections and creating CSS docs
for each section.

Google Docs & Spreadsheet is updated

I was really surprised to wake up to a new interface for Google Docs &
They now have a "navigation bar" on the left that uses expand/collapse
navigation of different classification types (not exactly folders,
though that is the title of 1 classification type). On the right is a
list of your docs and spreadsheets.
