Google Reader: The Good and The Bad

After playing around with Google Reader, yes it is my first time, I
found it to be an amazing web app. However, I also found some awkward
stuff going on, for example:

- Add a subscription button: Searching feeds and adding using one
text field? Doesn't really line up in my mind.

Its Just UX

During the closing plenary of the IA Summit on Sunday, Jesse James
Garrett said that “Information Architecture is not a profession …
and neither is Interaction Design … we have and always will be User
Experience Designers”. I’m paraphrasing a little from memory (the
podcast isn’t out yet) - but the gist is there.

I’m a big believer in this viewpoint (and I chaired the IA Summit
last year!).

From time to time I find myself struggling with writing very short
describing text labels and titles for our web application's UI.

Writing text labels and titles for the UI is much like writing road
signs, people go by them in very high speeds and you have a limited
amount of space.

I wanted to ask, how many of you work in companies who hire full time
copywriters? Part time?

Do you have a special UI copywriter adviser outsourced?

Or do you manage by yourselves and just advise anyone around you?

what to name the social networking area of a huge retail site

Hi all,

Today I'm struggling with an issue I'm hoping you can help with. We are
trying to rename the section of a very large, multi-language, retail site
that contains user-generated content (blogs, wikis, forums, etc.) because an
executive does not like that it is currently called "Community". Yes, I know
this is not why you should mess with site nomenclature but welcome to my

[Iai-Members] navigation structures and mouseover vs click triggers


I'm sorry I don't have any research to support these comments, but on
a gut instinct level, I don't think clicking in the top navigation to
activate the drop-down menus is good usability. Especially if
sometimes when you click, you get taken to another page.

I assume that on the pages with the drop-down, you'd have to repeat
the parent page name if there is one, so that users can then click to
go there. This sounds confusing.

Information Architecture 3.0

Since this article was partly inspired by IxDA discussions, I think it's
only fair to post it here:


And, if I'm wrong about my predictions, at least I'll have time to write
more than one Semantics article a year. Cheers!

IA terminology

I am wondering what people use for terminology regarding sitemaps/interaction flows in regards to communicating deliverables to people who don't have an interaction design/information architecture background. I am using sitemaps/interaction flows both and I find that the PM's are getting confused on what the terminology is, so I just want to settle on one term to simplify things for them.

I always associate site maps with "content" and associate interaction flows with "application design" or "transactions".
