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

IPod ecosystem (NYTimes) - changes in all aspects of design

(registration/login required)

This NY Times article highlights the growing speed at which design and
implementation needs to occur in all aspects of product development,
especially when said product development is completely dependent on other
people's work.

The story is about iPod, but it could be about anything where someone is
taking advantage of someone else's success.

I think the mash-up phenomena needs to be cautious

Java based web frameworks - any experiences regarding flexibility and frontend design?

In the planning of a large scale web application project the following web frameworks has been suggested:


  • JBoss Seam
  • Spring Web Flow
  • Spring MVC
  • JSF
  • PrimeFaces
  • Struts
  • Stripes
  • Tapestry
  • Wicket
  • AppFuse
  • Turbine


My concern as the principal consultant on user experience is to avoid any frameworks with limitations that can compromise our main target, an efficient, user friendly concept. I'm sure you all know my concerns in this regard.

(Date correction) Interaction'11 venue announcement, and registration savings for a limited time


There was a mistake in the dates announced yesterday for I'11 in
Boulder. The conference starts on Feb. 10th (not 9th) and runs to
Feb. 12th, 2011. Sorry for any confusion. At least we have a year to
work through the kinks!

IA Summit Registration Deadline

The Early Registration Deadline for the IA Summit is January 24 - this
Saturday. The Summit is about the best treat you can give yourself as an IA

nice break from Washington weather as well.

Go to the Summit website to find out more and register online.

I think Google has done some really nice interaction design on these
new features. They've added some very useful functionality that will
fundamentally change the way we use search.

Menu caption design

I have a map application, where a user can
add/modify/delete geometric zones. Zones have names
(A, B, C etc).

I am adding the Undo functionality, and need to decide
the right design for the Undo menu item, under Edit.

If I delete a zone, should the Edit->undo menu say:
"Undo Move Zone A" or just "Undo Move"

If I delete multiple zones, should the Undo menu say:
"Undo Move Zone A, Zone B, Zone C", or just "Undo
