Bruno Latour on Design

Hi Everybody,

Since there was a little talk of bringing some more academic
discussion to the list I thought I'd share a great article by Bruno
Latour (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruno_Latour)

http://tinyurl.com/6qr477 (warning, PDF)

It is a keynote that he delivered at the Network of Design conference.
I haven't even finished reading it entirely, but already it's really
interesting stuff..

Also, in doing some background reading on Latour I found out a little
about his Actor-Network Theory

Godigi or other mobile usability testing solutions

Does anyone have any experience with Godigi?  We received a solicitation email from them.


It looks like they sell a camera for doing usability tests on mobile devices -- has anyone used it?  Or any other products or services from them?

Column Heading Alignment Rules for PlacementofData

It's how the company's default email system behaves right now. It's not
ideal or widely used, but also not completely foreign.

Those who don't venture that far (who assume as you would that you can only
click twice to sort) will perhaps learn that it takes 4 clicks (instead of
3) to get back to "sort ascending" which, unless I'm mistaken, is not a very
common use case.

How would you propose the user return to the default sort method, if it's
not known or easily understood?

Designing experiences which are delightful and magical

I've put some thinking into what principles might guide the design of delightful magical experiences. I've used lots of examples of products which are successful and some which are not. 

We'd love to hear how other practitioners design for this.

Job - seeking designer to help with data display

Hi -

I am looking for someone for the following job. I think it will be
pretty fun (I’m a jealous that I don’t have time to do all the work
myself, but will be working with the designer).
