Interaction Design from a visual communication perspective

I have recently joined the IxDA Basecamp and made the following
announcement. Jeremy Yuille has convinced me to post it in the main
discussion list too for a wider input from the IxD community:

"Hi IxD community,

I’m Dave Wood a lecturer in Interaction Design from the UK. I’m based
in Liverpool and I’m engaged in part-time doctoral study at Edinburgh
College of Art on a practice-based PhD.

Between now and 2013 I will be researching interaction design from a
visual communication perspective.

Interaction '09 Video: Robert Fabricant - Behavior is our Medium

Hi There,

I'm pleased to announce the launch of the IxDA Media Library, a place for
video and audio of IxDA events around the world, including the Interaction
conference and local events.

A few caveats: We haven't migrated your IxDA.org accounts to this system, so
to comment, you'll need to use OpenID, or create a new account on this
system. Once you've done that, you'll have an account you can use on the
other systems we build, including the Board Blog, and the next rollout of
our discussion platform.

Do you have a mental protocol that you follow to judge the quality of a design?

When you view a digital product or service do you have a mental
protocol that you follow to judge the quality of the design? Is this
a conscious act? Is it something you've developed over time? Do you
actively seek to improve your judgemental process?

Online Message Center Examples

Hi all - I'm looking for any resources, examples, literature,
articles etc. around the idea of an online message center.

eTrade and Wells Fargo (I'm sure others) use message centers in
place of direct email communication. This is a very powerful security
tool - all messages are posted in a central, secure area of their
websites and an email such as "you have a new message in your
inbox" is sent in place of the message itself.

I tried some Google searches but I'm not even sure what to call

Thanks for the help!

Hi folks,

What the opinion of you about the true focus of interaction design?

I have seen several projects in the Master's programs that focus
only on the interaction between man and computer.
