Interaction design and tissues

I encountered this interaction design a few minutes ago and it moved me
to post :)

I've been sick all week with a sinus infection and have gone through
several boxes of tissues at home and work. Our brand of choice for the
home is Kleenex. No affiliation, just personal preferance. At work they
provide Angel Soft. A few minutes ago I grabbed for a tissue and noticed
that the one that popped up after was a different color. Not
significantly different, just not white.

Why Import/Export - A broken metaphor. More Semantic thoughts from the underground.

First - regarding upload and download - the use of these terms within this
community is so self-evident as to be tautological. Upload and downlode make
use of the spatial metaphors that here is down and there is up. Why there is
up is up for debate - but thats the way it is. For more on metaphor - see
Saffer's master's thesis and Lakoff/Johnson's "Metaphors We Live By."

More interesting is import/export. Before file formats, different OSes, and
networked computers - import/export had a commonly understood meaning.
Import was to bring goods into a country from somewhere outside.

Threaded Emails Displays

I'm currently working on a redesign on an application that creates
threads of emails and related information. I was wondering if anyone
knows of really good examples beyond google mail and the threading in
apple mail.
