Bookmarks from February 12th to February 13th

These are my bookmarked pages from February 12th to February 13th:

  • Emotion Tool Emotion Tool is the first software in the World to measure Human Emotional Response and it is revolutionizing the speed and efficiency of advertising, brand label design & packaging pre-testing worldwide.
  • Game Mechanics for Interaction Design: An Interview with Amy Jo Kim – Bokardo What are the primary principles in gaming that might be useful to interaction designers?
  • UX Design-Planning Not One-man Show – Boxes and Arrows: The design behind the design A lot of confusion and misunderstanding surrounds the term "user experience." The multitude of acitivities that can be labeled with these two words span a vast spectrum of people, skills and situations. If you ask for UX design (UXD), what exactly are you asking for? Similary, if someone tells you they are going to provide you with UXD for an application, website or intranet or extranet, what exactly are you going to get?
  • How Not To Sort By Average Rating PROBLEM: You are a web programmer. You have users. Your users rate stuff on your site. You want to put the highest-rated stuff at the top and lowest-rated at the bottom. You need some sort of "score" to sort by.
  • UXmatters :: Insights and inspiration for the user experience community Search results pages are some of the most visited pages on typical e-commerce sites—to say nothing of a search engine like Google. Many articles appear each year about optimal search algorithms, database performance, and the like. In contrast, very few publications focus on improving the search experience from the customer’s perspective.
  • Design Observer The other day I was looking at a proposal for a project I finished a few months ago. The result, by my measure and by the client's, was successful. But guess what? The process I so reassuringly put forward at the outset had almost nothing to do with the way the project actually went. What would happen, I wonder, if I actually told the truth about what happens in a design process?
  • On Defining IA he international IA community is now roughly 10 years old, and defining information architecture has been an elusive and maddening task since the beginning. And an enormously intriguing one for information architects worldwide as well, it seems, to the extent that the issue has been awarded its own well-known, fairly successful acronym, DTDT (Defining The Damn Thing).
  • s p e n c e r t u n i c k Spencer Tunick (born January 1, 1967) is an American artist. He is best known for his installations that feature large numbers of nude people posed in artistic formations. His installations are often situated in urban locations throughout the world. He also has done some "Beyond The City" woodland and beach installations and still does individuals and small groups occasionally.
  • Design with the User in Mind | UX Booth
  • Is Good Design Replicable? – Bokardo Here’s a question: Is there a process that guarantees good design?
