In the industrial design world, http://www.core77.com/ is the 800-lb gorilla of industry news, information and cool stuff. In interaction design, it's obviously the IxDA list, but its not quite the same since it's user-generated content, versus more of a news bureau approach. What sites would you say are the most like Core77 in terms of independent coverage of the interaction design industry?

Johnny Holland is the first one that comes to mind: http://johnnyholland.org/
Design Observer covers all kinds of design: http://designobserver.com/

First, recognize that the ‘right’ requirements
are in principle unknowable by users, customers
and designers at the start.

Devise the design process, and the formal
agreement between designers and customers and users,
to be sensitive to what is learnt by any of the
parties as the design evolves.

Vishal, I love michael's blog, but it is a singular voice, unlike
Core77 or JohnnyHolland.

the honest answer is that there is no single voice of our community
and the real sentiment should be Yeah! we are diverse and free. There
is UXMatters, Boxes&Arrows, Interactions, and a host of amazing
bloggers. And Core77 actually also covers our world too.

I think that in the new world of IxDA once the new web site comes out
you may see a shift in what the "list" is and isn't.

But Robert, what are you looking for when you ask for that gorilla?

Last point. Core77 is privately run and operated as a for-profit (not
a bad thing) and IxDA is NFP. Just sayin'

More on the web design side is A List Apart http://www.alistapart.com/ and
Smashing Magazine http://smashingmagazine.com

I actually think it's a fair question to ask - I only discovered a lot of
the blogs in the last year, if you don't know where to look it can be a bit
hard!

I would agree with Vicky.

A List Apart (http://alistapart.com) is a child of Jeffery Zeldman.
I'm sure you've heard of him :)

Smashing Magazine is one of my staples, when it comes to design and
interactivity trends. They not only show trends, but give the
reasoning and the research behind why it is trending.

I'm also a big fan of Creattica (http://creattica.com/).
Inspiration, trends, and beautiful inspiration.

Are there blogs or sites that round up studies and cold hard facts and
numbers, rather than pretty inspirational stuff? Of the sites
mentioned above, I think uxmatters is the closest to what I'm
looking for.

Thanks,
Sheri

I suggest Konigi (http://www.konigi.com) as well, it's a great mix of
gallery-type inspiration, analysis and new tools and resources.

Hi all,

David is making a good point. There is a difference between individual blogs
and more magazine like sites with more than one contributor. I have
collected the sites that have been mentioned in this thread. This is of
course only a small set, what are the others missing?

Johnny Holland Magazine http://johnnyholland.org/

<http://johnnyholland.org/>Design Observer http://designobserver.com/

Konigi http://konigi.com/

A List Apart (http://alistapart.com)

The UX Bookmark http://www.theuxbookmark.com/

Cone Tree http://www.conetrees.com/

Smashing Magazine http://www.smashingmagazine.com/

Boxez & Arrows http://www.boxesandarrows.com/

UXmatters http://www.uxmatters.com/
