What We Saw Through Their Eyes
By Steve Outing and Laura Ruel

What do people see when they view a news website or multimedia feature? Is
it what the site's designers expect? ... Perhaps not.

Mobile phones, use buttons or hyperlinks


I am wondering if anybody know if there is any research regarding the use of hyperlinks over buttons in order to perform an action.

I've seen the use of both buttons and hyperlinks for WAP 2.0, but am seeing more hyperlinks as opposed to buttons. I am creating an xhtml page.

What do you call this?

I do this--


--and it's been very useful.

The author calls it "wireframing," but everyone else in the world says that
a wireframe is a low-fidelity mockup.

Do other names exist for this sort of clickable, text-only, HTML

what is interaction design

Hi everyone,

I know this subject came up before, but I'm still very confused about how to define roles in all this terminology of UX UI IA etc.

All I want is to find a job with my skills, and often times I'm intimidated with the terminology. So my skillset is Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash, some HTML, CSS, and some AS3, could I be a UI designer?

I've designed websites in the days of dreamweaver, and I have designed my own wordpress site recently, so I do get by with some web dev coding although it's not my edge. I am mostly visual and conceptual.

Looking for a "scrolling" navigation

Hi All,

I'm trying to find an example of a navigation that scrolls down a
webpage as the user does. For example, let's say we have a page that
has a main content area and a left nav. When the user scrolls the page
down, I'd like the left nav to slide into view as soon as they stop
scrolling. It will always display at the top left of the section of the
page they are viewing. I know I've seen this somewhere, but I can't
find it.

What makes an RSS reader good ...

As soon as I find one, I'll let you know. ;)

But seriously ...

I'd like to be able to take notes about a post and save them with post
snippets and a link back to the post. I'd like navigation that doesn't
involve a treeview control (gasp!).

Time Entry

I've scoured the pattern libraries for various methods of entering
time of day into a form and have come up empty. I need to determine
the most efficient way for a user to enter a specific time. Options
include a single field, multiple fields (hours, minutes), single or
multiple spinners, or multiple menus. If anyone has other
suggestions, has seen examples, or would just like to offer an
opinion, I'm all ears.
