Your favorite rating interface

Don't get me wrong, I love stars, but I feel like the 5 star rating
interface is getting a little old. Especially because these kind of ratings
average out to be in the middle over time and therefore aren't very
informative.

Anyone seen any interesting rating interfaces lately? I'm especially
interested in rating of CONTENT on a site (more than an ITEM you might buy
or have bought).

Thanks for any links. I can compile and send out to the list if people seem
interested.

Wireframes and Use Cases

I'm working with systems analysts who are familiar with use
cases and only recently have been introduced to wireframes. They
are used to receiving business requirements and then developing
use cases out of those.

There is some debate on when is the appropriate time to
introduce wireframes into the process. My reponse was, it
depends on the project.

Interview Questions for Persona Development

As part of an independent study project (U Texas iSchool student),
I'm developing personas to help guide the BBA site redesign efforts.
I have access to a wealth of demographic, survey and web analytics
information and also plan to speak to the undergraduate program
office about their perceptions of the site and its users.

Please send your advice about what questions to ask (undergraduate
business school students) when doing interviews for persona
development. I hope to tease out user goals and behaviors.

Name Top Agile UX Consulting Firms

Hello all,

I'm looking for a "short list" of top consulting firm recommendations (Boston, NY area preferred, but US-wide is ok too) to consider from anyone who has had direct experience working with such firms that have really proven their worth to introduce and foster transormative work practice around Agile UX for web design/development teams. To help frame the scope of the consulting, I'm envisioning a 5-8 day cross-discipline/stakeholder workshop and educational service focused on agile UX and collabortive web product design/innovation.

It sucks to be a Jr. Interaction Designer/Jr. Usability Specialist/ Jr. User Experience Designer

For those graduating in 2008 (When the crisis started), 2009 (when the crisis was at the peek) and 2010 (when almost every 4th is unemployed in Malmö and Copenhagen Area), it really sucked/sucks to be a user centered designer. NO FREAKING JOBS! I was lucky enough to get hired as a technical writer with emphasis on usability....this was my first career job and I learned alot. Its just sad that it lasted for 13 months only.... My employer had to let 35 employees go. I was one of them.

Examples of web application system documentation?

Hi all,
Where could I find good examples of web application system documentation? Are there best practices and standards that I could rely upon?
We are customizing a web ordering (which we are proprietary) for a client and just delivered its system documentation (site maps, processes flows with notifications, high level interactions between web servers and databases, system structure description, and main screens descriptions – not at the object level but with emphasis on main functionalities).

Prototyping vs annotated wireframe deliverable

I am wondering if it is possible to create annotated wireframes with a browser chrome or a device around the UI that can be viewed in an annotated deliverable but then be able to remove the chrome/device in the prototype version of the same wireframe file. I.e. Maybe put the device/chrome in a layer that can be turned off when the prototype is generated? Anyone have ideas which programs may be able to do this?
