New IxD Techniques to Try in 2007

Hi!

I'm putting together a list of new IxD methods and techniques I've
found that I want to try next year:

Oddly enough, however, looking back over the blogs I follow, I didn't
find too many new methods this year.

JOBS: Good listeners wanted - SpeechCycle, NYC (fulltime)

Hello,

I've been on the list for a couple of months now and thank you all for the
interesting discussions. I mainly relate to the general IxD topics, because
I operate in an entirely different area of interaction design, that of
human-to-machine speech.

The purpose of this email is to see if you or any interaction design
practitioners you know might be interested in looking into a different area
of the practice (assuming you're *not* in voice interaction).

Hide vs Collapse

My colleague and I were talking earlier about whether to use the word
'hide' or 'collapse' for showing the simplified version of an object
on a web page. The object has three states: edit, preview, and
collapsed. We talked about using "twist-downs," as suggested in the
Closable Panels section in Designing Interfaces (Jennifer Tidwell),
but because we have three states, this doesn't really work.

Online surveys

Hi All,

I'm planning a quantitative study (to augment one of our more typical
qualitative studies) and looking at using a host for a Web-based survey.
I'm wondering if anyone has found any that are particularly good.

Statistical measures like confidence intervals, cumulative distribution
and correlation analysis are must-haves.

Vanguard Vista has been recomended to me, and it appears to have
everything we need.
