RE: Beauty and Transparency

For those who may not be familiar with it, there is an interesting body
of research at Caroline Hummels' site at Delft.
Her work centers around the question of interactive aesthetics, which
butts up quite rapidly against questions of interaction and beauty in

For example, the 2000 text "Actions speak louder than words: shifting
from buttons and icons to aesthetics of interaction" (scroll down her
publications list a little) offers five criteria for evaluating

Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] Hotel Home Page Sneak peek

Hey Iaax - How's it going man? I have to agree with abhishekbhor. I think the old version has more personality and has a "signature look" which is important for hotel branding, while the new one is much more usable, more corporate and ultimately a little boring. I would stick with the new layout but add some spice, give the background a pattern, make more use of color, give people something to remember.

And if you want my full opinion you've got my number.

Best, Kim

JOBS: Good listeners wanted - SpeechCycle, NYC (fulltime)


I've been on the list for a couple of months now and thank you all for the
interesting discussions. I mainly relate to the general IxD topics, because
I operate in an entirely different area of interaction design, that of
human-to-machine speech.

The purpose of this email is to see if you or any interaction design
practitioners you know might be interested in looking into a different area
of the practice (assuming you're *not* in voice interaction).

Traffic analysis tools?

I am looking for some traffic analysis systems/tools that should be
used in measuring usability. The main requirements are:

* standalone - no data can be send outside the company environment,

* wide spectrum of (easy readable) reporting: the-more-the-better.

Additionaly - some kind of support for interface-analysis (e.g.
possibility to compare metrics for two or three randomly displayed
versions of the same page) would be nice, as well as all these
candies like site overlay.

Any recommendations?

This is the final week of our Power of 10 pledge drive. At 5pm EST Monday, we'd raised $4580 towards our $25,000 goal. Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far – 45 of you have generously helped us on the way to our target.

100% of the pledges so far have been unrestricted donations. That means IxDA will be able to channel your support towards the initiatives and improvements to our tools that matter most in advancing our mission – especially technology platforms like ixda.org.

Stuffing focus to textbox controls

This may relate to the recent auto-tabbing thread...

For using a proxy server to establish an internet connection, we have one checkbox for enabling the proxy, which makes active a textbox for the server and port plus another checkbox for authorization. Turning on the second checkbox enables username/password fields.

What should happen with the input focus when the checkboxes are turned on? Should it stay where the user last clicked, or should it move to the newly enabled textbox, or go somewhere else.

Good Examples of Physicality in Web Visual, Design

This question is a little confusing. What is exactly meant by
"physicality?" It sounds like your client is saying "I want my web app
to feel like a desktop app." ITunes, although it has a metallic-looking
"finish", doesn't really do anything special in terms of a "physical"
