Bob Boiko

Tools 0nfor IA
Over the last 12 years, I have been stuffing my head full of the design, programming, management, and content of content systems. From the first time I matched a printed user's guide against the capabilities of Windows 3.0 Help, to the last time I sat with a .COM client and discussed the impact of massive content management of the architecture of an eCommerce site, I have been living the transition from print to the computer screen. I've seen a ton of technologies and a slew of systems. I've learned enough to know that there is a lot to discuss and figure out. My thinking on what I have experienced has reached embryonic maturity and is now a book on the subject of content management. Now, I can finally explain to my company, clients, and friends what I have been babbling about all this time.

Whitney Quesenbery

Designing a Search Interface - PowerPoint Presentation
I've been a frequent presenter at conferences like UPA, STC, CHI and commercial events sponsored by WinWriters, Solutions and Effortmark as well as many local meetings and corporate clients. I have worked in what has variously been called HCI, human factors, information design, interaction design, multimedia, interface design and information architecture. For most of my computer-based design career, I worked for Cognetics. Before that, I was a theatrical lighting designer; now I am the principal in Whitney Interactive Design.* My first experience with search was in a pre-web hypertext program, Hyperties, and then with half a dozen different search engines for library reference tools. There's something interesting going on out there, with people I would never have expected to use search practically demanding a search function on even small web sites. This was too good not to investigate. * I've presented parts of this work at the National Cancer Institute (usability.gov) seminar series, an STC phone seminar and a few local meetings.

Jared M. Spool
PDF Presentation
If you've ever seen Jared speak about usability, you know that he's probably the most effective, knowledgeable communicator on the subject today. What you probably don't know is that he has guided the research agenda and built User Interface Engineering into the largest research organization of its kind in the world. He's been working in the field of usability and design since 1978, before the term "usability" was ever associated with computers.

Jared spends his time working with the research teams at the company, helps clients understand how to solve their design problems, explains to reporters and industry analysts what the current state of design is all about, and is a top-rated speaker at more than 20 conferences every year. He is also the conference chair and keynote speaker at the twice-annual User Interface Conference, is on the faculty of the Tufts University Gordon Institute, and manages to squeeze in a fair amount of writing time.

His latest work is as co-author of Getting Them to What They Want, a report about the best practices for designing successful navigation to content.
