Can’t remember who put their hand up for getting really good (and therefore really useful) with ‘card-sorting’ …
Anyhow, there’s great material at the recently developed Encyclopedia for Human Computer Interaction by the interaction-design.org people … Chapter 22 : Card Sorting !
there’s also some relevant chapters, on requirements engineering (how to find out what features, functions, etc. really need to be embedded in the design) , and visual aesthetics (how to figure out what it should really look like, based on what user’s are trying to achieve)
Sort amongst you who’s following up what (also include on the reading list the prototyping and storytelling books from Rosenfeld media, that i leant you as digital books)
