Prototype to shipping product, WebSketch

On the vein of creating prototypes and then using them for the real
product (I didn't want to hijack the other thread, so I'm making a new
one), I guess I can point to something that went live recently that
Involution Studios helped design and build for one of our clients. A
web page editor for SplashNote Systems called WebSketch, which can be
found at:


Now, before the folks over at SplashNote get the naysayer treatment...
some qualifiers.

* It's an early beta.

filters for a profile search

Hey IxDAers,

I'm designing a site that enables law firms to search law student profiles
to find job candidates, and have have to build the interface attorneys will
use to search the student profiles. I'm struggling with how to start the
search. Most fields have set values (state, law school name, law degree,
field of practice, state licensed in), and it seems we'd kick it off with
filters. There are about 15 such fields to search by, and we've got the
primary filters list down to 5 (those stated above). other filters will be
progressively disclosed.

Looking for good interface examples

I'm gonna throw this one out there, does anyone know of any good examples of
the classic "Don't show this again" message or of the ability to control a
similar preference from a pop up window.

ANN: Nathan Shedroff's new "book in progress" on sustainable design

(apologies for duplicate postings)

I'm excited to announce that Nathan Shedroff, author of "Experience
Design" and co-author of "Making Meaning," has begun work on "Design
is the Problem: The Future of Design Must be Sustainable" for
Rosenfeld Media.

Sustainable design is clearly a timely, critical topic. The design
world makes a tremendous impact on the produced world in terms of
usability, resources used, and understanding of priorities.

Research on user errors with multiple screens?

Sorry if this is a bit of an esoteric request but I'm hoping someone
can help - I'm not even sure what keywords to use for these searches.

standard desktop OSes or applications. It's even more frustrating
because people are inconsistent in what they call a 'screen' or

I'm looking for research on rates, types, and descriptions of errors
made by people who have work environments with multiple screens.
