What UX can (and cannot) learn from games Lies, Damned Lies, and Wikipedia How many times have you used Wikipedia when trying to find out the basic facts surrounding an unfamiliar event or topic? How many times has Wikipedia been your first port of call? When one seeks information online relating to a divisive, confusing, or hotly debated topic, nine times out of ten the first port of call will be a search engine, most likely Google. Resultingly (as we will see), the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, now a household name, has become the chief first source of information for a huge majority of people. Though Google and other search engines are very useful and powerful tools for finding information, one must employ extreme care. The search engine specialist comScore’s January 2012 report spells out the search engine ‘market’ in the United States. Visit Google, Bing, and Yahoo, and search for the term “2011 Libya war”, or “Libyan civil war.” Wikipedia: Zionist Lie Factory Libya: Lies, Damned Lies, and Wikipedia

5 Ways to Be Persuasive in Your UX Work By Michael Hawley Published: November 1, 2011 “To be successful as a UX professional, you need to know how to be persuasive.” In your work as a UX professional, do you ever find that you need to convince people that the team should follow a user-centered design process? Do you need to convince stakeholders they should do user research? Being good at persuading people is particularly important in our profession, for a variety of reasons. Recognizing the importance of persuasive skills, I was very intrigued when a speaker at a recent conference recommended the book 27 Powers of Persuasion by Chris St. 1. “Persuading others is much easier if they like you.” In the literature, this is a common theme: persuading others is much easier if they like you. First, start with the basics of etiquette. Second, find something that you like about the people you work with. I had this experience with a CEO I was working with on a project. Finally, don’t be afraid to be different. 2. 3. 4. 5. Yes, and…. St.

David Petraeus’s first year at the CIA “I hear the rumblings” from mid-level CIA officers, says one senior administration official. But he says Petraeus gets high marks from the White House, which took the unusual step of naming the prominent general to the post. An assessment of Petraeus as he nears completion of his first year as CIA director echoes these themes. It’s been a big change, from commanding vast U.S. military forces in Iraq, Centcom and Afghanistan to the smaller and sometimes haphazard CIA. His personal staff shrank from 50 to six. Petraeus also gave up one of the most visible media profiles in America — the iconic man in uniform — for a civilian job in the shadows, with the Obama White House insisting that its intelligence chief stay out of the news. The bottom line is performance, and here Petraeus gets good marks both from his senior colleagues and the administration. An example is Petraeus’s reorganization of the CIA’s famously bad system of career development. davidignatius@washpost.com

Pequenos detalhes na interface de usuário fazem a diferença - Design BlogDesign Blog Muitas vezes não notamos pequenos detalhes nas interfaces que usamos. Coisas simples, desde uma borda de 1 pixel até o uso de uma cor diferente. Mas estes pequenos detalhes nas interfaces podem resultar em impactos enormes. Neste artigo vou falar sobre alguns casos de pequenos detalhes na interface do usuário (“user interface” ou UI em inglês) que fazem toda a diferença para o usuário final – e é algo com o qual devemos nos preocupar para poder fornecer um produto melhor. Vídeo no blog da Claudia Regina A Claudia Regina (responsável pelo Dicas de Fotografia e minha esposa) é uma fotógrafa com foco em pessoas, especialmente gestantes. Algum tempo atrás, ajudei a produzir um vídeo de apresentação dela que iria ficar na página inicial do blog dela, acima dos posts. A quantia de pessoas que clicava no “play” não passava de 30 por dia (em torno de 20% das visitas totais diárias) – um valor aceitável, já que o vídeo possui conteúdo adicional e não principal.
