Jan 22, 2004: InfoDesign Relaunch

Peter Bogaards' incredible InfoDesign web site/news service, along with ia/, keeps many of us in the know when it comes to user experience stuff. It's one of those incredibly useful sites that's too good to be true, so of course I'm always fretting that it might suddenly vanish. Who knows? It'd be easy to imagine how InfoDesign's maintenance could burn Peter out. Or worse, Peter might get distracted by something silly, like discovering a new love, futzing with a new iPod, or launching a new solo consulting business.

Well, I'm both surprised and thrilled to find that InfoDesign is healthier than ever. Dirk Knemeyer, Karel van der Waarde, and some other good folks have redesigned and improved the site, and, I'm sure, by doing so have made Peter's life easier. Even if you're just remotely interested in user experience, experience design, or just plain design of any flavor, go check out the redesigned InfoDesign site and sign up for the announcements list.

And while we're on the subject of UX, feast your eyes on Javier Canada's lovely map of the User Experience Cosmos. Javier has plotted UX people, products, professional groups, and resources along two axes--analog/digital and subjective/objective. It's exceedingly difficult to conceive a meta-field like UX; not only is Javier's distillation elegant, but it could be helpful in communicating the essence of UX, especially to the visually-oriented. Thanks to Javier for his work and Dirk Knemeyer for the pointer.
