health websites/web apps that show rather then tell about disease and what you can do about it

Hi

I’d appreciate pointers to websites that do a good job of presenting basic
info about a disease and esp. what you can do about it
(prevention/detection).

I’d especially like to see sites that don’t rely so heavily on text to get
across prevention tips, screening tests, symptoms to watch for, for someone
who just found out they’re at risk for a condition. Looking for sites for
regular people (not healthcare professionals).

I’ve checked the archives but don’t find anything good.

Password enforcement UI - good, bad or ugly?

Thought maybe I could garner some opinions on the usability of
password enforcement techniques.

Recently, I've noticed a trend towards more "secure" passwords for
many things, and that's a good idea. However, I've also noticed that
certain web sites take that to an extreme, disallowing the use of any
password that does not meet their criteria.

Interaction Design and Theatre

Hello,

just wondering... does anyone of you has information about interaction design studies applied to theatre?
I've tried to put up a show using human-machine interaction principles a couple years ago, and the results were astonishing.
I'd like to keep on working in this sense of direction. Anything in Dublin, Ireland?

Thanks,

Maria :-)

Definitions project

As some of you know, a small group of people recently got together via an
IxDA Basecamp acct to try to come up with definitions for common terms,
including UCD, ACD, and genius design.

This has proven more than a little frustrating, as expected.

"The Most Frequently Used Features in Microsoft Office"

At the Adaptive Path UXi conference, they spoke almost specifically
about this - the fact that new webapps are coming out that try to give
20% of the functionality that 80% of the users will use instead of being
everything for everybody. They used Writely as an example (which has
since been bought up by Google) to show that people usually only need a
subset of what is offered in Microsoft Word.

“The Most Frequently Used Features in Microsoft Office”

Thought this Google OS post [1] hasn't been posted but would be of interest:

> 1. Paste (11% of the usage)
> 2. Save (5.5% of the usage)
> 3. Copy
> 4. Undo
