pattern or feature inventory (as in content inventory)

I appreciate the responses so far.

Allow me to reframe this question: I am looking for a method to capture and
present interactive elements on a competitor's site.
I'm thinking of an interaction designer's version of the IA's content
inventory. I want to inventory interactive features, rather than content
and links. Any ideas?

For example, in a previous job I had TechSmith's Morae(R) which would allow
me to capture dynamic aspects of an interaction, or an entire experience. I
do not have Morae now.

Looking for a Mobile App UX/UI designer in South Florida to speak to my class.


I am teaching a mobile app graphic design class at Florida Atlantic University this semester. We would love to have someone with mobile app design experience come and talk to us about the design process, careers, and the mobile app industry. I am not sure we have any sort of budget for this yet, therefore I am reaching out to those already living/working in South Florida to volunteer to spend and evening with our class.

Please let me know if you are interested, or if you know someone that might be. Thank you!

Site Metrics

I'm evaluating web analytics packages. At my last job, we used Google
Analytics. We implemented it so that we could track click-analysis as
well as page views. For example, we could look at any given page on
our site and get data for how many people clicked on each individual
item on that page.

Unfortunately, at my new job, we can't use Google Analytics. We have
to store the tracking data internally for privacy reasons. I've been
reading about Omniture, HBX and the original Urchin software product.
Have any of you used these products for this purpose?

RE: [IxDA] Is there a formal UCD process?

Hi Alice,

Last year I published a paper titled "User-Centered Design, Activity-Centered Design, and Goal-Directed Design: A Review of Three Methods for Designing Web Applications."

The paper gives an overview of each method's foundations, processes, and key deliverables.

I'd be glad to send you a copy.

Tablets, grids and multi-select


I'm designing a business web app that will be used in both desktop and tablet context. I'm wondering if a usable tablet pattern has emerged for offering functionality similar to control-click/shift-click on the desktop, assuming we don't want users to pull up a keyboard just to select control or shift.

This is funny, this reminds me of my grand-grand mother she used to say that
aircrafts were witchcraft, when I at that age (+-6) was already familiar
with planes...

Just a bracket (now I am going to be flamed really hard) It's my opinion
that on this forum and I presume this activity (IXD) people don't take the
terminology too much seriously, or in other words a lot a things mean the
same thing and sometimes those same things mean completely diff
