Need ideas for green-themed prizes to promote "Go Paperless" launch

My company's about to roll out our "Go Paperless" option (we're a bank),
which is going to save lots 'o trees and a lot of money.

encourage enrollment, we decided to have a contest.

Audio User Interfaces

Hey IxDer's....

I'm working on a project (which is a very small physical device)
needing a UI. We're thinking of making it an audio interface (words
and sentences not just sounds). Has anyone worked on such an
interface, and are there any resources (or inspiration) out there that
I can look at?

Thanks in advance!

Prototyping with Adobe CS3

Hi all,
Ever since Thermo came out, I've started paying more attention to Adobe
products and their potential for use in rapid prototyping. Previously, I've
thought of these products as being massive, teetering piles of features that
need to be "integrated" (read: "made even more complex") in order to produce
effective prototypes. But the UXP I saw demonstrated in Thermo has wreaked a
little havoc with my prejudices.

Have any of you worked with the trio of Fireworks, Dreamweaver, & Flash to
do rapid prototyping? What is your process like?

Post Mortems

Wondering if anyone has a good framework for managing project post

I am looking for ways to evaluate team performance, how well we met
project goals, how good the "product" of efforts met user needs,
capturing what we did well and what we need to improve on, stakeholder
feedback etc.

Anyone have a template they might be willing to share?

What would you include in a project evaluation? How much time would you
spend with your team and stakeholders at the end of an effort to assess
how you did?

Do you recommend Expression Blend?


We're starting an implementation project for a Windows application
that we've already designed (form, content and behavior is done). The
design involves some eye-candy and transitions that would be trivial
to implement with WPF, but not so trivial with Windows Forms.

To help the coders concentrate on coding, were considering to re-draw
our Photoshop+OmniGraffle originals with the shining new MS Expression
Designer+Blend toolset, hoping that the output is directly useful WPF/
XAML/C# input for Visual Studio.

Any guidelines/design patterns etc.. on when a downloadable format ( such as pdf/word/ppt) is appropriate compared to creating a webpage?

Hi everyone,

I would appreciate if anyone could point to me to any guidelines /
design patterns or some source on when a downloadable format ( such as
pdf / word /ppt) is a better option compared to creating a webpage.

For example, a website that talks about policies which are large
documents , it would be best if people are able to download the policy
and review it.

Or if its about a particular process, it would be best if they are
able to download the process and use the printed document to reference
while doing the process.

Any help you could provide will be much appreciated.

Thank You
