Statistical analysis in interaction design

Recently I had the opportunity to discuss the use of statistical analysis
techniques with a group of professional and semi-professional information
architects and user experience practitioners. It seems that the level of
sophistication and rigour applied to data gathering and, in particular,
statistical analysis is quite varied.

Microsoft's Ribbon / design decisions

Not to hijack this thread, but this comment brings up an observation and current frustration of mine. I am in the corporate world for the first time (for the last 15 months) and it appears that there is a lot of decision making that occurs outside of the 'what is the best thing for the product/company' paradigm.

I see two things that frequently occur in the corporate executive ranks. The first, what is best fo me and my career (or to keep my job) is probably the most frequent. Frankly, it makes me crazy. When I was running a consultancy, I very much appreciated passion.

Resiliency of IxDA Jobs in a Major Recession

Hey there, colleagues.

With the financial crisis and credit crunch hitting the economy squarely
in the wallet, my thoughts have been drifting towards musings on the
viability and resiliency of IxDA (and related) jobs during a major
economic downturn.

In the IT sector, I'm already seeing the early warning signs of a
downturn the likes of which I haven't seen since the Dot-Com bubble,
though the epicenter this time is outside of the IT world.
