Community design?

Hi
Just curious:
In my company (an internet media company) design happens over a group
session involving writers and business people, and of course, designers.
Can good design really happen this way? Usually the designers (who are
outnumbered and softer-spoken) get over-ruled by self-skilled content
writers. I'm wondering whether to improve my shouting skills or work on my
CSS?
Cheers,
Soo

Connecting 2007

This year is the biannual ICSID/IDSA international congress for
Industrial Design to be chaired by Bill Moggridge in SF. They will be
accepting presentaitons of all kinds including around digital products.
This is the first time in 22 years that the congress is in the US and
the IDSA is trying to make this a very big event.

Check out the site at: http://connecting07.org/

I encourage lots of IxDers to submit to the congress as there is an
entire track for virtual/visceral programming.

Does anyone know if DENIM is being supported?

I've used it in the past, it doesnt scale at all which would tell me that
there are some fundamental issues with the code beyond the obvious bugs. A
real shame as its a fantastic idea, I used it with a client building a real
estate website in the UK and it helped him delve in to fleshing out his
ideas once he understood the interface intricacies. However he got very
frustrated once we got past about 5 pages, 5-10 links per page.

Rule based templates

Can anyone
give me any directions as to how should one design a rule based
template into the workflows. I know outlook mail has a pretty good
message rule builder. Any other reference?
Also Should the user see
the rule syntax being built (as in say, divided into the construct like 'Event', 'Condition', 'Action'). Can users with no or little
programming background operate easily on such logical paradigms?

thanks
Kaushik

One Final Controversy for 2006!

One last one before the end of the year:

Donna Mauer's OzCHI Keynote: User-Centered Design: Is it working?

http://www.maadmob.net/donna/blog/archives/000738.html

Some quotes:

"We have to stop selling usability. It doesn’t have a value
proposition. Usability is a quality aspect of something – it is not a
process, an artefact, a deliverable or anything that anyone cares
about what you are going to give them.
