Column Heading Alignment Rules for PlacementofData

It's how the company's default email system behaves right now. It's not
ideal or widely used, but also not completely foreign.

Those who don't venture that far (who assume as you would that you can only
click twice to sort) will perhaps learn that it takes 4 clicks (instead of
3) to get back to "sort ascending" which, unless I'm mistaken, is not a very
common use case.

How would you propose the user return to the default sort method, if it's
not known or easily understood?

what helped most in your career? : Dealing with criticism

Hi Everyone,

I've been following the original thread about "what helped most in your career?". Many of the posts are very very inspiring.

I have on spin-off question. How do you deal with the criticism? I'm not talking about polite constructive criticism. That I have no problem accepting & applying. But what about the down right harsh hurtful comments, by peers, managers, &/or end users, when you know you did/are doing the best you can at that time? We all know that some jobs/careers are just not right for some people.

Interaction design vs. Usability -> differencesincompetency

I beg to differ. Usability engineers are not de facto interaction
designers and vice versa.

User research such as usability testing (or user engineers, or whatever
other name we can think of...) is, without a doubt, imperative, but it
certainly is not (interaction) design. It identifies problems, but does
not, except maybe at the most detailed level, suggest adequate
solutions.

Board Positions

As a current board member and our treasurer I want to encourage everyone
to consider joining the board, especially colleagues from outside the
US. Board membership is a great experience.

With the help of this growing community we are trying to build a home
for the development of the discipline and a place for each of us to
grow, network and learn.

F2F in Boston -- interested?

Who would be interested in a casual get-together or two in the Boston area?
I'm thinking early August for the first one, and one later in September or
October, when more people are back from vacation (so don't worry about
missing the first one).

Please send me private replies, to reduce traffic for our 2000+ other
subscribers.
