Product Planner: users flows for popular sites

I thought this was an interesting site. It's a crowdsourced tool for
documenting interaction flows for popular web sites. I do this all the time
when doing research for similar features on my products. This could be a
good tool to help reduce that work.

Last Login Session Details - necessary?


I'm working on a community events website where artist are able to
register to the site in order to take advantage of cool features. How
important is it to make 'last login session' details available to users
upon logging back in? Information like IP address, last session length,
date last logged in, etc. I feel this is really unnecessary for this
type of site but others disagree.

I didn't realise I had multiple subscriptions either. Perhaps those who don't realise they've been added to the jobs list could see a different footer in job posts.

Apologies for duplicated posting

Sorry everyone, for the replicated posting. The web site was producing a message when I sumitted saying 'system unavailable, please try later'. So I did. I never did get a confirmation, but I gather the emails were being sent in spite of the failure message.

[EVENT] IxDA Los Angeles & Yahoo present

Hey folks,

For the record, I do not sense plagiarism here. It's a natural
dialectic. Personas are a valuable and powerful tool yet they are
sometimes seen as controversial, for various reasons. I first worked
with Adam Korman at Cooper, where personas as practiced today were
invented, so I'm guessing he'll represent the "Personas RULE"
side of things. All persona proponents need ways to deal with the
"Personas SUCK" side of the argument, which is certainly out there.
So I think this is a valuable conversation to have within the
community, period.

Wanted by the Police: A Good Interface

Since June, the police department has been using a new mobile dispatch
system that includes a Windows-based touch-screen computer in every patrol
car. But officers have said the system is so complex and difficult to use
that it is jeopardizing their ability to do their jobs.

Officers complain that routine tasks are so difficult to perform that they
are discouraged from doing them.
