In a recent usability test, I once again witnessed something I’ve seen a hundred times before: a frustrated user claiming he knows exactly what is wrong with the interface he was fighting with.

If you’re in the market for a new website, one of the first things you’ll need to do is hire a web designer. As in any field, there are good web designer and bad web designers, and it’s important to know how to determine which is which. Here are 5 tips to get you started:
The intranet is beginning to restructure the organization in more ways than one. Content is now an asset, and the people who manage it need to treat it as such.

We often think about security measures as ways of protecting resources by preventing access to them. The need for authentication arises because, in the real world, keeping people out of protected areas is only half the battle. Authentication is about letting certain people (or processes) in, while keeping everyone else out. In practice, this usually means some people are going to have to be given secrets (passwords) that will form part of the credentials they need to present in order to gain access to protected resources. But since, as the old saying goes, the best way to keep a secret is not to, the distribution and exchange of access-providing secrets inevitably raises the level of risk to a secure system. A major goal of authentication, from a security point of view, is minimizing that risk – especially when users are being authenticated remotely, over publicly-accessible networks. Authentication is the process of poking minimally risky holes in one’s security.

When I was a kid, I loved to lie back in the grass, staring up towards the sky.
Sometimes, while lying back, I’d stick my feet up in the air and look at my little feet with the clouds moving behind them. Then I’d pretend that I was walking across the sky. These are some of the fun things we do as kids, and as we grow up we forget about this kind of magic…
