One day I’ll get back to blogging regularly, for now some misc. finds:
AbeBooks.com – has posted their list of the most expensive book sales for 2008.
Predictive Analytics World runs February 18-19 in San Francisco. Eric Segal, the conference chair, has put together a great event for predictive analytics professionals, managers and commercial practitioners.
Flashbulb Interaction (based in Seattle) has released their online book entitled Working through Screens: 100 Ideas for Envisioning Powerful, Engaging, and Productive User Experiences in Knowledge Work. The book “is a reference for product teams creating new or iteratively improved applications for thinking work. Written for use during early, formative conversations, it provides teams with a broad range of considerations for setting the overall direction and priorities for their onscreen tools. With hundreds of envisioning questions and fictional examples from clinical research, financial trading, and architecture, this volume can help definers and designers to explore innovative new directions for their products”. You can view the book online or download a PDF of the book for printing along with the accompanying idea cards.
Jakub Linowski has launched a little project called Wireframes where you can view new samples of design documentation coming from IA’s, interaction designers, and UX practitioners. Contribute or follow on Twitter.
One of my colleagues passed along this post about possibly using Surface for card sorting. Interesting idea.
