There are four main topics in this presentation - from simple practical considerations to the more obscure cognitive triggers. IAs need to know this stuff and act on it before the interaction-design crowd, the business analysts, and the content strategists take it away from them:

1. Forms and basic functionality - the crap needs to work
2. Building shared references - folks won't buy what they don't understand
3. Value-added services - enhancing the experience through context
4. Cognitive triggers - influencing irrational decision-making processes

If I know what I’m looking for, help me find it. 5. If I have questions, I want straight answers, not a salestalk. 6. Tell me if you’re going off to look for my size. Don’t just turn and leave. 7. If you expect me to buy something, tell me what it costs 8. Are your own affairs so important that you feel justified in ignoring me? 9. Don’t make me feel stupid. 10. If you make a mistake, admit it. Sources: Paco Underhill, Eric Reiss

  • 26. Old Hawaiian Hula Dancer Girl Motion Lamp All original and signed Dodge Inc on the base. Shade is original also but needs some repair or restoration. The hula girl is in wonderful condition with a fabulous patina. There is a little loss to the bronze finish at her right shoulder. No chips, cracks, repairs or scratches. Hula mechanics work excellent -- strong and quiet. Light works also. The only damage I have to report is the switch is bent some but still works -- I don't want to try to straighten it and risk breaking it. There are 4 settings--off, hula only, lamp only and lamp and hula. Wiring looks good. Base is 7 1/4" diameter. Lamp is 18" tall to top of the socket, 21 1/2" tall with shade attached. This is the very first hula girl motion lamp -- she has a lei around her neck and around each ankle. She looks to be made of bronze but I don't think so. Circa 1940's. What looks like spotting on the base is magnified dust particles from rubbing my finger on her skirt to straighten it out -- my camera really shows them up for some reason.
