How to not change the design (YouTube) with a few commonsensical rules for the change

A quip.

YouTube has changed their design recently. One thing they did right about
the change initially - they didn't force the change: an unobtrusive message
had invited you to "try" the new layout before you switch.


Part-time/Flexible HCI/IxD courses

Hello everyone,

I'm very interested in interaction/UX design that I'd like to do this full time. After reading books like "About Face", "What makes them click", "Why we love or hate everyday things"..etc I started developing solutions for issues I had in mind, with the purpose of practicing design in general. 

To work in this field full time, I was advised to enroll in a program. However, I'd like to keep my full time job in Dublin while studying.

kinds of questions, basics of the scientific method and experimental
design, validity vs. reliability and more.

Re: [IxDA] Username vs. Screen Name

Are you asking about the concept or the labeling?

For the concept, there are valuable "identity" consideratinos from social design patterns at http://habitatchronicles.com/2008/10/the-tripartite-identity-pattern/.

For the labeling, I understand "username" as authentication, and "screenname" as display, which despite bound to the same person, must be kept separate for many reasons you can read on that link above.

Good luck!

Research/paper/insights on Use of mobile technology by Professionals on the move


I'm currently working for an internal paper for my organization.

I need to collect research material on usage of mobile/technology to meet user needs, specifically of professionals that are constantly on the move. I'm also looking for content on behavioural and motivations for such professionals.

Any relative links or cues in this direction will be a great help.

Looking forward for more enriching information.
