SXSW talk on rapid prototyping

I just wanted to put in a shameless plug for my proposed SXSW talk on
rapid prototyping...


I've done the talk at a couple other events, including Web 2.0 Expo,
and it always generates great feedback.

Video of User Testing with an Interactive Prototype

Hey everybody...
I am looking for a very specific video to help illustrate the value
of early-stage interactive prototype testing with a client.

What I need is a video that shows user testing with a prototype that
is not "finished" looking...something akin to an interactive
wireframe, or a mixture of wireframe and video clips.

Let me know if you have anything close to this...a couple hours on
Google and YouTube hasn't led me to the promised land.

Thanks in advance,

Fixed or rotating feedback icon?

Has anyone conducted usability studies or knows about user preference for a fixed position rotating feedback icon (eg. [+] Feedback) versus a rotating and scrolling one which follows the user as they scroll up and down a page.

Looking for a row-entry design pattern

There's a pattern that I've seen a couple places - MS Access being the
one that comes immediately to mind - where a person is doing
row-oriented data entry and filling in one row then hitting return
causes a new empty row to be created automatically so the person can
continue data entry without having to go elsewhere for a special
"create new row below this one" command. Does anyone have other
examples of this pattern handy or better yet a description/writeup of
the pattern?

" There is an interesting interaction problem here. If I carry
different devices depending on what I'm doing on a given day, how do
easily I tell the carrier which device I want to receive calls on?"


Looks like Google is trying to sort that problem by being device
