In addition to picking up a book for the fall semester, I ordered The Design of Sites (subtitle: Patterns, Principles, and Processes for Crafting a Customer-Centered Web Experience) from Bookpool last week. I’m still reading through the first chapter in my spare time, but this looks like a good read. Common sense seems to be a major component of a lot of the observations so far, but they’re definitely on the right track. This could definitely be a textbook for an upper level college class on usability and site design. I guess I’ll take that as a good sign.
I apologize for the light updates this month, August seems to be pretty much a wash. I’m getting organized for the new semester and should hopefully be able to bring this weblog back in to the workflow. I’ve also been suffering without a news aggregator for the past few weeks. That is something I need to fix immediately before I go insane.
Back to work!
