Thank you Borland for your extremely helpful dialog from your very reliable product, CaliberRM. And here’s our winning dialog, which I am now seeing on a regular basis:
With apologies to the author, although it’s a brilliant test exercise in coding functionality, this is a perfect example of excise. It seems stuck in beginner mode: if you don’t know the names of months, how many there are, days in a week, hours in a day, minutes in an hour, so on, or what [...]
Fascinating visualization tool of American food trends this Thanksgiving by way of the New York Times.
When I first started as a designer in this field about 12 years ago, one of the first things I remember wanting to design was the information displays on medical devices.

Thanks to Ryan for pointing out this opinion piece on the Design for Democracy project. You can also see the interactive piece that shows how it would work. As user experience professionals, and as UPA members, we feel of course that the information design and interaction design are inseparable parts of the entire voting user [...]
At one time, before the dotcom world ended, people would put out these crazy job descriptions where they wanted what used to be called a webmaster: someone who coded, designed, researched, and managed the web services for a company or an organization. They wanted someone who was familiar with major scripting and programming languages, someone [...]
