More MS Bill (Buxton)

Giving Bill more props, here's two interviews from CBC radio with Bill.
Part I is on the importance of the arts in innovation, Part II he talks
about the 20 years it took to get MS Surface to market.

I wonder, if there are some interaction design companies over here for

Our very own founding father - Tog - interviewed byBusinessWeek

I love it:

"Q: Apple is constantly held up as a paradigm of a company that has mastered
smart design thinking. What can other businesses do to emulate its success?

Tog: Well, they could take Steve Jobs!

Q: Is it that simple? Is he really so influential?

Tog: Not in the early days, because he didn't run the company. But Steve is
a man with three elements that make up the story of his success. First, he
worships good industrial design and good behavioral design.

Google Docs & Spreadsheet is updated

I was really surprised to wake up to a new interface for Google Docs &
Spreadsheets.
They now have a "navigation bar" on the left that uses expand/collapse
navigation of different classification types (not exactly folders,
though that is the title of 1 classification type). On the right is a
list of your docs and spreadsheets.

hmm?

Domain Driven Design conflicts with CoopersInteraction Design...

Michael,

Good questions. I must admit that I'm new to the concepts of
Domain-Driven Design, but here's my initial reaction.

Bruce's response is pretty consistent with my experience: The way most
people think about the world (their mental model) is very different than
a well-designed data structure. The unfortunate reprocussion of this is
that (especially on products designed by engineers) data structures are
are often designed first, and then user interfaces are built so that
they reflect the underlying database architecture.

The Playground is a separate eBay site that allows us to experiment
without changing the entire eBay site. Although a few features of
regular eBay are not available on the Playground, bidding and buying
are real. The main difference right now is how you find items.
