Does anyone know what happened to ..

By deepsand ·
the "Design and Usability Tactics Newsletter," from Builder.com?

It seems to have unceremoneously replaced by the "Software/Web Development Netnote Newsletter," from TechRepublic.com.

The content of the latter seems to include none of that of the former.

Winding Down?

by TheChas In reply to Does anyone know what hap ...

Browsing around at www.builder.com.com it looks like Builder.com did not generate the response expected.

I finally found the newsletter page:

http://nl.com.com/acct_mgmt.jsp?brand=builder&return_to=http://builder.com.com:80/5100-6371-5331883.html

It shows that I am still subscribed to the Design and Usability newsletter.

Looking through my inbox, I see I have not received an issue for a while.

Yep, it's looking pretty sparse there.

And, like TR, no means of contact provided.

Did you too begin receiving the same new TR newsletter that I did?

Design and Usability

by MaryWeilage Editor In reply to Does anyone know what hap ...

Dear deepsand,
Thanks for inquiring about the Design and Usability newsletter. The final edition of that newsletter was sent to subscribers on Jan. 5, 2005. We included an editor's notice in the last delivery of the newsletter stating that anyone who was subscribed to that newsletter will now receive the Software/Web Development NetNote.

You are correct in noting that the Software/Web Development NetNote hasn't contained any design content; it focuses more on XML, Java, C++, SQL Server, Web services, etc.

Would you like to see this NetNote start to incorporate more CSS and design-related content?

Thank you,
Mary Weilage
Newsletter Editor

Yep, I blew right past that notice!

by deepsand In reply to Design and Usability

I'm so used to notices at the top being promos, & member/subscription related items at the bottom, which is where I looked for it just now, that I never noticed it on 1st reading; I finally found it.

Yes, I found the content of the now defunct newsletter quite useful, particularly in quiding clients toward a solution that serves their best interests; i.e., the form vs. function issue.
