XP: Extreme Programming & Product Usability

They don't fit in. :)

Here's why:

XP relies on a "customer" to decide which features should be implemented
and when. A "customer" may be a product/project manager, customer service
employee, a marketing resource, etc.

IxDA Board Member Luke W on visual interaction design!

"Think of visual design as the “voice” of interaction design and
information architecture. It communicates the importance of (and

Usability of Usability

Usability is an important aspect to be looked at for making any system achieve its ROI and to give its users an ‘experience’ that will help foster a better culture in the organization. As the ultimate target of any system is to establish change management and to promote organizational innovation via modifying the behaviour or culture of the people in the organization, it becomes imperative that aspects of usability are engrained into the goals and processes of the organization.

==========

Convergent Technologies, Divergent Devices

Convergence has been a popular topic for years. The term has scared
executives into bad mergers (anyone remember the $2 BILLION that
Disney lost after buying Infoseek?). We hear about the convergence of
TVs and PCs, voice and data, media and distribution, marketing and
customer service, content and advertising -- and more.

Login/register during checkout

There are a number of models for login/register during checkout. Some sites insist that you do one or the other. Some have an additional 'continue without doing either' option. Some signpost the 'do nothing' option as 'register later' , and provide the capability to do so.

I'd be interested to hear of practical examples as to the relative merits of the various models, and what the issues are. Has anyone implemented this type of process into an existing checkout process?

thanks

Nick
