I have more books than usual on my "need to read" shelf.
This blog entry is less for you and more for me. I need a nudge to go beyond just skimming them.
- Access by design
- Subtitle: "A Guide to Universal Usability for Web Designers". Appears to be a nice update to all of those "visual design meets HTML" web design books from the 90s.
- Return on customer
- The value of your company is determined by how happy your customers are.
- Search engine marketing, Inc.
- Mike Moran is amazing. Search technology meets marketing for the long haul (vs. sleazy, short-term marketing).
- High performance MySQL
- Most is over my head, but Jeremy is a former student of mine, so I want to see what he has written.
- The art of project management
- "How not to annoy people" is the first chapter I read.
- The simplicity survival handbook
- I love books that talk about UCD "from the outside". For Jensen, making things simpler to know requires us to be user-centered.
- Perspectives on web services
- "Perspectives" writing style is good, but end-user and UI designer perespectives on web services need to come next.
- Web application design handbook
- I do not do much with web apps on ibm.com today, but want a reference manual for when the time comes.
- Emotional design
- I have heard Don talk on this topic several times, knew a used copy of the book would be worth the price.
- Radical innovation
- I met one of the authors at a local conference, want to read the IBM stories.
