An alternative to Transfer boxes

Transfer boxes have been around for a long time and is a classic UI control
for multi-selecting items and creating/building lists. However, it has a
very bloated UI and a cumbersome interaction. Are there variations or
alternatives to transfer boxes to perform multiselect functions? Online

I will be hopefully be teaching my 1-day workshop on how to apply
sketching as an invaluable design tool for interaction design on
Wednesday, Oct. 29th from 9a-5p in Manhattan. Too many UX
practitioners have not gained experience in this most important of
designer thinking and creating tools.

Future Interaction: The application of IxD to science fiction.

I'm a huge sci-fi dork, I'm sure I'm not alone in that here. One of the reasons I enjoy sci-fi is the chance to reevaluate the devices and computer systems thought-up by the great writers and film-makers of the past. It is interesting just how bad many of these interfaces are.

This discussion can be two-fold: What devices and interfaces do you find memorable from sci-fi you've read/seen?

Ed Caggiani

An introduction...

Hi all..been reading the list for a couple of weeks now and thought it was
about time to introduce myself. My name is Ed Caggiani, and I'm a User
Experience Designer (or Interaction Designer, or whatever you wish to call
me) at Zazzle.com.

I recently moved into this position from engineering, where I was a User
Interface Engineer :-) So basically, I went from implementing user
interfaces, to planning and designing them. Much more fun this way!

I hope to learn more and more about interaction design through reading lists
like this one, and networking with folks like you.
