#157 Listener phone-in (part 2)

James, Per and Danwei were gathered in Studio Axbom to take questions from you, the listeners, in the 9th UX Podcast Listener phone-in.  This is part 2 of the highlights we’ve extracted the 2-hour live session.

In part 2 we discuss social media share buttons, designers and data scientists, the impact of delight, the tendency for us to throw behavioural psychology grenades at users and see what sticks, normalising defects – have we coached people into accepting a level of defects for web products we wouldn’t normally accept?

Our guest in part 2 was Craig Sullivan.

Part 1 of highlights are available here.

#76 James & Per thank you for subscribing

Episode 76 is a link show. James and Per discuss three articles they’ve discovered on their digital travels. First – 45 days to plan a Tweet? Just a bit of bad press, deliberate PR? How do we know what’s true anymore? Second – Thank you for signing up! Pay attention to your thank you pages. And finally – The share icon that nobody agrees on. We’re talked hamburgers before, now it’s the turn of the share icon to be discussed.

#62 James & Per are delightful

In this linkshow James and Per discuss 3 articles they’ve found during their digital travels.

In the middle of the show we get delightful and discuss  adding delight to your ux. Finally we peel back the buzz and look at working with touchpoints.
