[PLUG] Workshop • Wireframes with EightShapes Unify • August 21, 2009 • Washington, DC

[Please forgive the cross-posting!]

The holy grail of design documentation is efficiency. You want to spend your
time solving design problems, not fiddling with annotations or getting your
wireframes to line up just so.

EightShapes Unify, a collection of templates, stencils, and components can
help you get there.

Copyright Question

Hello all,

First of all, thank you in advance for any information.  I'm sure it will prove to be helpful, whatever the outcome.

Have any of you had an experience copyrighting a bit of web architecture?  I was reading up on copyright law, and it seems that once you create the bit of information, it is protected under copyright law.  You have to register it with the copyright office if you wish to persue litigation.

Re: [IxDA] Berkshire Hathaway. Good Design?

That is too funny!   I believe Berkshire Hathaway simply does not make money from it's corporate website, thus it does not need to spend excess capital on this site.   note it is somewhat usable in that it highlights the basics of Bershire that a user would need to know about.   I especially love Jewelry and car insurance links at the bottom of the page.   Rich

the UX hall of shame

I am 1/3 laughing, 1/3 flabbergasted, and 1/3 MAD at how poorly
www.godaddy.com <http://www.godaddy.com/> is designed

(plus I am trying to use it at 130am and I am tired anyway, which is making
me even more laughing/flabbergasted/mad)

But it brings up a fun idea:

How about a UX contest to redesign that site?

Flash vs. Flex

I'm guessing Dave will have an opinion on this... :-)

I'm having a hard time deciding whether to stick with
Flash (our current prototyping tool) or move to Flex.
I purchased Flex, and it seems powerful, but at the same
time, it was a little more difficult to create an interactive
prototype. Also Flex lacks any layout guides, rulers, etc.
that are present in Flash.

But, if Adobe is moving in the direction of focusing Flash
more on Animation and Flex more on interaction, applications,
I don't want to be left behind, and wonder if we should
invest further in Flex now to be prepared.

Rule based templates

Can anyone
give me any directions as to how should one design a rule based
template into the workflows. I know outlook mail has a pretty good
message rule builder. Any other reference?
Also Should the user see
the rule syntax being built (as in say, divided into the construct like 'Event', 'Condition', 'Action'). Can users with no or little
programming background operate easily on such logical paradigms?
