IA Summit: Day 3
On this third day of the IA Summit, a specific presentation in particular inspired me: “Extending the gaming experience to conventional UIs” by John Ferrara. It showed us how concepts based in video games can be applied to more traditional products like desktop applications, websites and traditional intranets.
Other interesting moments were Peter Morville’s “search patterns”, a collection of online search examples which could be quite useful, and the discussion panel about prototype modes which showed the importance of using prototypes as validation elements for the different design steps of a project, whether it’s a paper wireframe or XHTML.
Tomorrow is the last day and let me just say that the conference is moving so quickly that if I blink I just might miss it.
