I think there is a line to be drawn, yes. I wouldn't be extreme about
where it was drawn, but I wouldn't want to be associated with something
that was a design disaster.

Subject: Re: [ID Discuss] Re: Prototyping

I should have been more specific :) I was talking about either new products
or entirely new features for existing products. Generally, the model
supports starting at low fidelity to get initial reactions with minimal
investment and moving through to highest fidelity (actual product or
alpha/beta version) before release.

ADMIN: how to set digest?

Hiya, a lot of people have been sending in requests for information about
how to set digest mode, so I thought a bulk send might be helpful.

Send an e-mail to: discuss-request at interactiondesigners.com
In the message body type one of the following w/o quotes and w/o added text
in parens:
"set digest plain" (plain text, muddies up attachments)
"set digest mime" (richer text, allows for attachments)

...to turn off digest
"set digest off"

For all other settin

Prototypes, process, and ID

We create all of our prototypes in HTML and we throw ALL of them away.
We make prototypes in HTML for web applications, desktop applications,
mobile phones (sometimes), and touch screens. It has worked wonderfully.
We prototype very early and make our prototypes look like crap ...with
everything in grey and lots of smoke and mirrors.

admin-reply-to now goes to poster

Please note that reply-to on the new list now goes to the poster and not to
the list. You will need to do "reply-all" to send to the list. This was done
after we had a # of requests for this.

Test Topic

Well it is time to say goodbye to our Yahoo Group and move to our new
domain, discuss at interactiondesigners.com.

Moving forward the members of this list should now send their messages to
discuss at interactiondesigners.com. You have all been subscribed to this new
list. NO ACTION IS REQUIRED. However your options for digests and "no email"
settings were lost in the transfer.
