Don't Be Too Innovative with Your UI...

...so claims Rich Skrenta, founder of Topix.

"People don't lean forward and squint at web pages to figure out how
they work anymore. They instantly recognize -- within 100
milliseconds -- which class of site a page belong to -- search
result, retail browse, blog, newspaper, spam site, message board,
etc. And if they don't recognize what kind of page they're on, they
generally give up and hit the back button.

Our news pages didn't conform to any standard metaphor. Some people
thought they were search results.

iPhone Number Conversion

Does anyone know how you can PREVENT the iPhone from taking a string
of numbers and trying to convert it to a phone number? I know that
there are ways to code a link as a phone number, but we have several
strings of numbers on a mobile site that we want to prevent from
being converted to a useless phone number.

I did some searching, but couldn't find anything relevant.

Topic: Yes, Virginia, there is a perfect Web page

Is there really one ideal way to do Web pages—a definitive “best practice”?
And if there is, does that mean that all pages should basically look alike?
What about creativity and innovative design?

MIX11 Open Call Voting is open 2 big IxDA folks to vote for


Yup! i'm going to do it. Just like people did for SxSW, I'm going to do it here too.

Myself and Kevin Silver (2 people who have put a ton of sweat into ixDA over the years) have talks that need your votes in order to be presented at Microsoft's annual MIX event (#mix11). This is an event that is a great space for us to push IxD into the developer community. There are other talks that fill that space as well, so take a look after you vote for me and Kevin. Here are direct links to our talks.
