Essential disciplines for successful technology, what's your idea?

Hi there,

Within my conference team we have been extensively discussing the
disciplines needed in creating successful technology.

After 2 years of pondering, we came up with a framework that includes
Experience Design, Persuasive Technology and Analytics (Evidence Based

Further distillation of the main objectives and insights of these
disciplines lead us to 3 fundamental ideas that project to future
application of the disciplines (and we thought they were rather

This is iPhone application related.
Application UI is already done for S60 phones but we are developing

Fwd: Re: RE: IxD & ID

Hi all,

I've produced couple of Interactive storybooks and in my reflection on
my work, I see my self more of a storyteller than a designer.
Basically I design digital worlds as writer creates fictional worlds.

It's a question is that I do either
· a product (digital interactive system) or
· a production (movie, cartoon, a play) or even
· an artefact (digital book).

When you are in production, you don't have a time to think, and you
take examples from movies, books, cartoons, puppet theatre, pop-up
books, toys, games and even digital systems.

buy-in, consensus,etc. (was RE: Powerpoint vs. "regular" slides)

Excellent point. When I say "consensus", this is really what I mean.
I guess I'm accustomed to communicating with stakeholders, where
one facilitates buy-in by calling it "achieving consensus". :^)

I'm in no way in favor of design by committee, but am in favor of
bringing stakeholders into alignment with design decisions, via
whatever rhetorical means work best.

[PLUG] From Napkin Sketch to Live Prototype in 2 Days - GDF in SF 2-3 April

Hey all--

Good Design Faster (April 2-3 in San Francisco) is Adaptive Path's
newest workshop -- a unique experience where attendees spend two days
with Adaptive Path practitioners sketching interactive experiences and
turning them into functioning prototypes.


The basic premise of Good Design Faster is that wireframes are good
for some things, but quick, iterative, interaction-oriented design
ain't it.

In this workshop, we'll take participants from back-of-the-napkin

Beauty and Transparency

I put together some bits and pieces related to our discussion of beauty and transparency.

When we say transparent, do we mean invisible, as in Donald Norman's example

"You use computers when you use many modern automobiles, microwave ovens, games, CD players and calculators. You don't notice the computer because you think of yourself as doing the task, not as using the computer." ["The Design of Everyday Things", New York, Doubleday, 1989, p. 185].

Here are a few definitions of beauty I found:
