Questioning User Research (was Eyetrackingarticle on UXMatters)

Hi Dave,

One of the biggest issues I notice in the application and understanding of user research is the confusion on its quantitative and qualitative usage. There is a persistent perception among designers that they need to produce "numbers for the marketing guys." User research as part of design research tends to be qualitative. It uses methods of observation, immersion, scenarios, and engages participants in activities like card-sorting.

Today's New Application for Making Applications...

application, you know that you can make something fantastic.

Career Path for Teaching IxD

I am interested in the group's thoughts about how to push one's career path into the academic side of IxD. Like many (really, most) of the folks in IxDA, I am a practitioner in the trenches. I have always had an interest in teaching, however, and so I wonder what steps one might take to teach IxD (and related topics) at the collegiate level.

I'm anxious to hear your experiences and suggestions. Thanks.

CLI design guidelines

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anybody could point me to some design guidelines or any
kind of reference, for that matter, about the design of command line
interfaces. I'm looking for anything from suggestions for grammars and
syntax to ideas about how do structure command names.

Thanks in advance!
