    So what’s this got to do with anything? After half a dozen clicks from my RSS-aggregator all I get are some daft pics. And this is supposed to be a Useability site!!

    Sorry Wally, but you might note the category– apropos of nothing.
    Sometimes it’s about usability, often it’s about information architecture and sometmies it’s frivolous.

    In general, I think I’m gettin tired of usability talk. I’m not quite ready to shut down all together, but I feel a shift going on…

    Well, whatever you do, DON’T stop blogging! Maybe shut down the whole usability blather (I know how you feel, believe me!), but the stuff you write and link to is a godsend to my days in this silly cubical! I look forward to your travel writings, your musings on driving, your comments that are apropos of nothing.

    It’s something I love.

    I had an epiphany today. Which sounds much more exciting than it really was…

    It struck me on the train back from London that the BigIssue wasn’t IA / ID / Usability / UXD or any of the things that I’m interested in. The BigIssue is (wait for it) integration.

    Which is precisely the thing that I’m not very interested in. Except in a very academic kind of way.

    I’m wondering if these IA / ID problems that have been occupying everyone’s attention so feverishly are just going to – you know – go away. Over time. As more and more designers broaden their skills – I mean, we have enough evangelists now, don’t we? (And I count you, Ms Wodkte, as one of them. This was one of the first IA sites I read heavily and taught me a quite horrible amount of what I know).

    So I’m having a mid-life-IA-crisis. And am fully expecting to buy myself a big red sports car any day now. One with a big red button right in the centre of the dashboard that says ‘Drive’…

    Let’s get back on topic here, can we?

    So Christina, you work with “kind fo people,” huh? I met some Y! folks at CHI in Seattle (2001), but they didn’t strike me as that kind of people. Speaking of *fo people*…

    I’ve worked *fo* many different people, but I’ve never worked with *fo people* … definitely not kind fo people, either. I assumed they were all shallow, fake people — you know — faux fo folks….

    [groan now]

    Personally, I think the Snowmen are heading for Minnesota…Damned little frozen terrorists!

    [I’m also avoiding blogging on my own site…”life” is taking precedence – activities like organizing the garage and building a dollhouse with my five year old.]

    I absolutely loved the snowmen distraction. It was funny and cute. And…hey, it’s YOUR blog – post what you want. It’s not like anyone is paying a subscription fee to come here. You don’t *owe* anyone an “on topic” post.
