Practical Reciprocation for Information

I remember a discussion about a year ago regarding reciprocation vs. reward a la "Neuro Web Design".  (Found this book very helpful, by the way.)  Our company has the ever-so-common situation of having whitepapers, brochures, etc.

Issues posting via email

Hi Everybody,

Some recent questions form members had me wondering if posting to the site via email had been working at all over the last little while.. After some investigation I realized that it wasn't.

I'm very sorry to those who were inconvinienced by the issue. I have processed all the messages that were waiting, but not identified why they hadn't been processed in the first place. I'll be manually processing new messages for a while until we figure out what's going on.

Folksonomy and last.fm

Hi everyone!

I recently stumbled across some papers about taxonomy/folksonomy (mind you,
I'm still a student).
I noticed the common oppinion about folksonomies is that they are not
reliable because of the
synonymy of the language.

So today I find this image on last.fm
You can find it at this page

Design --> Development pipeline/tools?

Hey folks -

What's your company's process/pipeline/set of tools for delivering
and communicating designs (and associated visual design assets) to
your dev team?

*[Addressed particularly to "innies" in software development orgs
though anyone's insights much appreciated]*

TO be clear: I'm NOT asking the "Visio vs Illustrator vs Fireworks
etc" conversation. I'm asking what happens *after* the design team
has determined (at least a first cut of) both how the app should
work, and how it should look.

Any Usability Test on 2-factor Authentication?


I am doing a research about two-factor authentication (those device generated numbers that are used along with user name and password for logging in to a computer or website). For example, RSA has the following devices and software:


I was wondering if anybody knows about any usability test/research done on that.

At CHI? Why? Or why not?

Hi there,

About a year ago there was discussion on this list about the pros and
cons of CHI, with one of the themes being that CHI was too
academically oriented. I've been asked to assess the reaction of
folks to the attempt to redesign this year's CHI conference to deal
with a broader set of issues.

As of this year, the conference is providing additional tracks
oriented towards various communities with things like experience
reports, interactivity sessions, and a variety of courses integrated
into the general conference format.
