How to manage horizontal-hierarchies enterprises of less than 150 members?

just a rethorical question.

btw, I just registered the www.zensui.net domain and "don't know what to do
with it".

You are all a creative bunch, I'm happy to be part of IxDA (the coolest IxD
Guild on the Net, rofl).

The executive summary of some random thread:

My practical definition of IxD:

Cooper-style design courses in UK


I've been reading this list for a week or so and have checked out the
archives but haven't been able to find an answer to my question.

I'm trying to convince my manager to send me to San Francisco to do the
Cooper 4-Day Design Practicum and he's asked me to find out if there are
any alternatives closer to home which, by the way, happens to London.
All I've found so far is Adaptive Path's Beyond Usability workshop in
Amsterdam in June.

Recommendations for firm specialized in customersupport solutions

While I was with GSI Commerce we evaluated a company for help desk
applications called InQuira. Probably the best capabilities demo I've
ever seen, really impressive. They integrate with call center ops a lot
too. Not sure if it's a fit, but they are definitely worth looking

Training internal resources in IA


I am currently the only information architect at UVic and management doesn't
have long-term funding to hire further IA resources at this time. I've been
asked to "Ensure that a number of existing resources possess entry-level IA
skills through peer mentoring and education."

We haven't identified any resources with formal or informal IA training. The
resources we'd be training are primarily web developers and possibly a
linguist or library science professional.

I'd appreciate your thoughts on how to go about this.

How to evaluate long-term engagement

Does anyone know of any methodologies or case studies for evaluating (or
predicting) long-term engagement? Any specific application to social
networking sites would be great, but analogous examples from video
games, enterprise software, or whatever else are welcome.

Re: [IxDA] Time estimates for Interaction design

Jimmy, there are no "novice questions".

I suggest you give them a "deadline" and 'early date' (if the project is completed earlier than expected) and a 'late date' (if something happens that makes the project be completed after the deadline; this is to give you some "breathing space" so that the deadline isn't 'set on stone')

Also, you could have broken this post in 2: first post (introduction), and your question about time estimates.

Have a Nice Day.

Feature control on user interfaces

Hi All,

As applications grow, so does the demand for new features. I am curious
about two things. In the industry:

[1] What methods are used to determine the most "used" features as opposed
to the most "wanted" features?
[2] How often is this process repeated?

Any pointers will be appreciated.
