Innovation, Patents, and Patent Drawings
Fri, Sep 28th 2012 12:09p   IBM SocialBiz UX
A co-worker and fellow patent board member recently shared this article, The Unsung Art of Patent Drawings. As someone who has created patent illustrations using my computer keyboard, I was in awe of these drawings. I was particularly impressed with the creeping baby doll illustrations. Being a patent recipient, albeit under the name of IBM, my patent drawings are, to be candid, bland. How exciting and knock-your-socks off is this partial diagram of a computer network?

Labels are very important for making your website universally usable. The different types of labels you need to pay attention to when designing and coding web applications are: Alternate text for images Tooltip text Form labels Aria labels Lets get into the details.... Alternate Text for Images Alternate text is for a screen reader user.

In the technical writing world in general, and at IBM in particular, writers are becoming more involved in the software design and development process. We're beginning to embed product help directly into the product UI. Our goal is to eliminate the need for our clients to interrupt their work and go looking for help. No longer will separate, independent documentation be the only content that we deliver. The techniques that we use are Progressive Disclosure and Embedded Assistance.

The feedback dilemma
Thu, Aug 9th 2012 11:08a   IBM SocialBiz UX
Working in documentation can be a frustrating experience sometimes, for reasons you wouldn't really expect. I used to think that it would be hard to accept criticisms about our work. I envisioned customers coming in and pointing out all the flaws in work, and us having to scramble to address them. It turns out that the reality is just a little bit different. You see, I sit here most days wanting solid feedback that I can act on. Where do the docs need work? What parts are confusing, and why? [read] Keywords: ibm lotus community wiki

Social resumes
Tue, Jul 31st 2012 12:26p   IBM SocialBiz UX
I always love a provocative headline. Did this CNN headline catch your eye: "Are social media making the resume obsolete?" After some thinking and browsing through numerous examples and samples, here's what I found. The first step in setting up an online resume is to set up your profile on LinkedIn. People find their jobs through who they know. LinkedIn is the place to connect to those you know. A teammate, Karel Vredenburg, has a great profile - precise and concise.

ARIA Landmarks - Your Page's Table of Contents
Thu, Jul 5th 2012 8:58a   IBM SocialBiz UX
ARIA landmarks are used on pages to structure the page for the blind user. Think of them as an outline for the page. The JAWS user is able to bring up a landmarks dialog, which acts as a table of contents, from which s/he can jump to any point in the page. That sure beats having to reading from left to right, top to bottom to find something s/he is looking for! To pass accessibility requirements, everything in a page must be contained within an ARIA landmark (i.e. no orphaned content, please). [read] Keywords: application email

Lessons in mobile design

As we shift towards a world where 'everything desktop' is expected on the tablet, we're looking at different ways of approaching design for the mobile context. Anyone who has designed in this realm before knows that mobile comes with a completely different set of expectations, motivations, and affordances. Personally, I don't have a lot of experience designing for anything other than print or web, so when I got my first iPad project I was suddenly faced with a very high learning curve.
