Re: [IxDA] Username vs. Screen Name

Are you asking about the concept or the labeling?

For the concept, there are valuable "identity" consideratinos from social design patterns at http://habitatchronicles.com/2008/10/the-tripartite-identity-pattern/.

For the labeling, I understand "username" as authentication, and "screenname" as display, which despite bound to the same person, must be kept separate for many reasons you can read on that link above.

Good luck!

Paginating a categorized list


I have a list on a mobile screen that is organized into categories that does not fall into a continum. Let's just say that it is 'North', 'East', 'South' and 'West'. The list is loaded remotely and everytime only 10 can be retrieved from the server. Is there any good example of an UI that work for such a list? The regular stream that the Facebook and Google+ won't work. I don't want to show all the North entries, have him scroll down and wait for entries for 'East', 'South' and 'West'.

Thanks for your advice in advance!

Designing the Obvious, coming to a bookshelf near you

If you're interested in finding new sources of debate and lively
conversation, you might pick up a copy of my new book, released today,
called Designing the Obvious. It discusses guiding principles of web
application design, but does so by pointing out concrete examples and
talking about how to reproduce the qualities that make web apps great.

The term "interaction design" is mentioned exactly once, on the second to
last page of the book ... I think.

Any Ixder's working on physical products inthegroup?

In answer to the original question, I am working on the design of some
physical phone related products and am happy to start a dialogue about that.

In terms of the ipod discussion below...I have an ipod and I love it *in
spite* of the interaction which frankly I often find confusing. Very
frequently, I am hitting the menu button at the wrong time instead of select
and I find the term "Menu" which really means "Back" on an iPod (sometimes)
to be very confusing and difficult to use. Having spoke with others, I know
that I am not alone in this observation.

REMINDER: [EVENT] IxDA DC Social: Monday April 28

IxDA D.C. Face-2-Face Social: April 28, Cafe Citron, Dupont Circle

IxDA D.C. is throwing a Face-2-Face Social so we can meet in person for
drinks, socializing, and planning upcoming events based on user (you—the
community) research. As such, we will be gathering both qualitative and
quantitative data on the interests of the local IxDA & IA communities. We
might even craft some personas (using pictures from later in the evening) to
bring our archetypes to life.

So — come one, come all to this April IxDA D.C. social event.
