Muthu starts off then ! xDesign is the abbreviated form of UserExperience Design it seems. He says designers need to feel the user. That is so very true after seeing the Motorola SLVR L7. Mental model is how the user *thinks* it should work. And he also spoke on how to integrate the design process into SDLC itself. Things like gathering user requirments and subject matter interviews seem pretty cool. Oh ya bring on some examples man ! The iPod example of golden ratio is pretty cool and the gmail example of contextual e-mail search are pretty neat ones i say. 80-20 rule of design principle. How is it that almost all things have some rule or other ?
And we are closing for the day. Looks like the Video-Conference from Hyderabad did not work out coz of some bandwidth issues. Guys are giving it one last try. Let us see what happens.
