Though I wish there was a link to-the-top on the Info page. But over­all, sim­ple, read­able and to the point. More screens below.

An Ode to UX Designers

One can go to the web and try to find a def­i­n­i­tion for User-Experience Design. They’ll find results such as this:

User expe­ri­ence (UX) is about how a per­son feels about using a prod­uct, sys­tem or ser­vice. User expe­ri­ence high­lights the expe­ri­en­tial, affec­tive, mean­ing­ful and valu­able aspects of human-computer inter­ac­tion and prod­uct own­er­ship, but it also includes a person’s per­cep­tions of the prac­ti­cal aspects such as util­ity, ease of use and effi­ciency of the sys­tem. User expe­ri­ence is sub­jec­tive in nature, because it is about an individual’s feel­ings and thoughts about the sys­tem. User expe­ri­ence is dynamic, because it changes over time as the cir­cum­stances change.

But some­times, ani­ma­tions can do more. Here’s a cou­ple by lyle on Vimeo.

Who Said Yahoo Doesn’t Share for Free?

Just last week, pre-Valentine’s Day, Yahoo! shows it love to the pub­lic by launch­ing User Inter­face Library and Design Pat­terns Library. Not to men­tion, the crazy cats over at the Yahoo! UI depart­ment have started a blog as well. Dang, they seem to be grind­ing and shar­ing great tools with every­one. I like that. You may read more about inter­est­ing tech­nol­ogy via Yahoo! Devel­oper Net­work.

Spe­cial thanks goes out to Blingo.com, that I came across Peter Freitag’s blog entry about it. It’s just too bad I didn’t win anything =|
