Thoughts on UXmap

A few months ago I was looking for a local design consultancy in Japan, and had trouble finding one. I thought it would have been great if design and UX-related information is organized geographically. I came up with UXmap.com and began providing local UX information about consultancies, labs, vendors, conferences, education, associations, events, and jobs. I can see how it supports needs of both design and UX people as well as their stakeholders. What do you think? Is there a need for this?

How do you avoid canned designs?


When you work on two sites that that share the same goals, top tasks
and audience; would try to come up with THE optimal architecture and
interactions for both and just play around with their
aesthetics/branding to make them look different? or would you
experiment with each of them until they end up with different layouts
that work?

This is becoming an issue with some of my projects, since I keep
reusing layouts that worked.

I did not pledge!

Just kidding!! :-)

Of course I pledged! I would not be without the daily ramblings of all you
grumpy old mac-apologists!
Seriously, this is a great resource and I read and learn from it daily.

Since I'm an ignoramus from the back-woods, I thought that "pledge" ment
"promise". That we were supposed to pay regularly. I expect you consider
introducing an annual membership fee at some time? I would absolutely
support that.

discuss Digest, Vol 28, Issue 9 [spam] pending deletion

"Imagine if a TV channel started dictating terms of the UI of the TV"

As someone who is working on TV related issues, I am nonplussed by
this. Maybe I'm not being generous enough, but imagine if your TV allowed
you to do things and it differed by every ad.

Understanding data from ClickDensity/CrazyEgg to help on redesign

I have a doubt about those Click Tracking apps and I would like to know your
experiences about that

I need to create a method, a logic to understand those numbers/graphics from
ClickDensity and comparing them with WebTrends data or Google Analytics.

Does anyone knows an article or something that could help?

Issues with iPhone update 2.0

Has anyone else lost their contacts, photos and calendar on their
phone but not on mac? I have tried all the "work arounds" on
apple.com and mobileme to push contacts but no joy. I contacted
iPhone tech support and await their reply.
