DARPA interaction opportunity


I thought I would pass along this RFP from DARPA for two reasons:

1) to invite discussion about what an interface for the proposed system
might look like and how it might behave;
2) hopefully help one of y'all get rich;

With this small ado, here's some introductory text:

The decision aids will assist the commander and staff in generating,

Magazine recommendations

What magazines do IxDA'ers subscribe to?

I subscribe to the standard ACM/SIGCHI/AIGA pubs,
but are there any other good pubs out there?

I picked up a copy of "Web Designer" that had
some pretty interesting/innovative Web sites...
And I've heard something about "How"...

For those interested in the convergence of art and design ... (this case around typography)


This blog post is an interview with an Israeli typographer who does both
typographic artistic installations and type/font design.

What I really liked about this article is the great source images that they
got access to.

Select radio button triggering action?

We're working with a vendor on a Web application for searching for a
doctor. The first screen requires the user to chose from 3 options:

How would you like to search?

o Search by medical condition
o Search by doctor's name
o Select a saved search

The options are presented as radio buttons. Selecting a button
immediately triggers the action to load the next page. I think this
would better be handled with links. Is selecting a radio button to
initiate the action a standard behavior?

search, results, refine


Does anyone have examples of a search interface where the user can conduct a
broad search, then continue to refine the search by filtering and sorting,
or modify the search or begin a new search.

I am interested in cases where the date/time ranges are involved.

On a related note - is it good practice to let users conduct a broad search
or limit the initial search and then have the user refine the search using
additional properties?

Do end users understand the concepts of filtering and sorting?
When is the result set too large for the user to make the next choice (in
this context) ?
