designing mobile interfaces for semi literateandilliterate people

I remember Gabriel White (isn't he on this list?) presenting work he did
for a phone in China that addressed this issue I think. But I can't seem
to find the actual product name. I'm sure he can expound...

Best of breed facebook applications?

Hi everyone,

I have a rather broad question - I am looking for your thoughts on what you
think are some examples of well designed / well executed facebook
applications, especially those that focus around allowing users to message
each other? I'm mostly interested in seeing examples of apps that really
excel in the user interaction and presentation.

Easy to use vs. feature packed

I am looking for any studies that compare software applications in the same market space in regards to user purchase decisions. Specifically I am looking to understand the impact of adding features vs. making a product easy to use. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Introduction to Interaction Design


I am putting together an Introduction to Interaction Design lecture. I guess about 30 minutes long.

I wanted to hopefully get feedback from the members here for things I should be including. The target audience is undergrad students who do not know anything about this discipline.

Expressing levels of achievement/reputation (eBay stars)

We all know eBay stars - different stars denote accumulated reputation
or "feedback score".

I like Ebay's colored star icon system because it's more elegant
and more subtle than, say, a "five star" hotel/restaurant system.
It's more like a karate belt color ladder.

But can levels be expressed in yet subtler ways? What other graphic
elements can be used?

Is blogging about work OK?

Hi There

Here's a question to all the avid bloggers on this list.

How do you draw the line between what work related stuff you can blog
about? Since most of us do interaction design at work, and talk about the
same one way or the other in our blogs, where do you draw the line?

Is it OK to share exciting details of how they brainstormed about a
particular problem, or a simple usability tweak in that took a solution from
usable to delightful?
