anything technical or official in any capacity what so ever. Sending me all

G1 Android - case study in inconsistency

Sorry if I'm rehashing a conversation here, but to my surprise I
haven't seen any G1 debates coming up here from the release this week.

So I'll start....Oh my...what a mess. I really enjoy gizmodo's write up....

The interface is really disconnected, inconsistent, and almost has an
amateur quality to it.

Why Understanding Business Models is Important to Ix Designers

Interaction design is hard enough to do when the business model is
clear. When the designer knows exactly how making a better design will
increase the value of the company, (thereby increasing the chances
they'll get a raise if they do a good job,) it's still hard to know
what to do.

All one has to do is look to Apple to see how this works. When iTunes
6.0 came out in January of 2006, they introduced a feature called the
mini-store, which, for all practical purposes, bombed.

Communicating Design, Visualizing non-linear task flow

Here is a question for you all.

I am exploring ways of using task flow diagrams as a means of conveying, in
an abstract manner, a recursive and interative user task flow that is not
linear - meaning the user is presented with a screen/canvas where their are
n number of dimensions/facets with attributes that a user can assign to some
artifact(x) to generate a new custom artifact (y).
How would you do it?

As an example - how would you visually communicate the user interaction with
the FaceYourManga flash application where you are building a custom avatar?
