tangible interfaces (was Matt Jones)

Thanks Dan. This article gave me an idea for a future game.

Combine the oh-so-last-year flash mobs with tangible interfaces and you
get Mob-and-Seek. Everybody buys a little device that just alerts when
someone else with the same device is nearby. You all mob to an area
downtown. You don't know who else is playing. If X people are near each
other (critical mass), one person's device automatically buzzes "you're
it." Everybody else buzzes "you're not it." They then have to figure out
who else is playing (who looks paranoid?) and tag them It.

AJAX and 508 Accessibility

Anyone have any ideas what impact AJAX has on 508 compliance? How
easy/difficult it is to make it 508 compliance? Many screen readers
only reread the page upon page loads (or used to). Has this changed?

Yet another challenge in the RIA bucket - but I still think they're
fascinating.

Cheers!

Apple Motion Sensor as Input Device

"Some Apple Powerbooks have a motion sensor inside that allows the
computer to detect how it is being moved. This is useful for, eg,
emergency harddrive head parking when a sudden fall is detected. Amit
Singh, while preparing for a book on OS X internals, has written
several programs that use the motion sensor for other purposes.

Eyetracking

I've read a little about eyetracking, but have waited for it to mature a
little before musing further. Has it been around for a sufficient enough
period to consider? From a modicum of personal research, it appears that
'market research' is the main target for those who provide this technology,
but it obviously has a wider potential.

What's in a meme? (but also cultural change in what direction?)

Alian <So this means Hitchcock, Kubrick, Truffaut, Lucas or Scott.
But after that, which sub-genre? The one who tries to be god, like
Kubrick by understanding every possible thing about the subject and
preparing for every event before the shooting? The one who actually is
god like Hitchcock (at least in his later films) by planning ahead each
take, each possible actor movement with incredibly detailed
storyboards.>

Within that, we are as wide as the world.
