Interface Design vs Interaction Design

Hi all, I'm new to this discussion group and have been a systems
developer/web developer for quite a while. I only recently heard the term
"Interaction Design" used to refer to those doing interface design.

So, my question immediately was. what's the difference?

mobile interface design guidelines

Hi all,

For one of my project i have to design interface for handheld devices. Does
anyone can point me to a good BOOK and any other literature which could help
me in knowing the guidelines or more importantly patterns of application
design for mobile devices.

Also do any one know any particular studies where people qunatify these
guidelines and standards and generated user interfaces for different mobile
devices automatically?

thanks a lot!

designing for behavioral change for the purposes of sustainability

http://www.lboro.ac.uk/research/susdesign/design-behaviour/index.htm

This site, "Design | Behaviour" (from the UK) seems really interesting.
They don't talk about IxD, but it really sounds like they are using core
facets of IxD theory and practice in the work being explored.

We had an event here in NYC where we looked at IxD and Sustainable Design a
few months ago and this work seems to be right on target with many of the
talking points in the conversation.

Here at Moto we are looking at this stuff

Open source user experience

I've been thinking about the open source movement.

I know very little of the UX community's involvement, so firstly I'm posting
to ask what has been happening so far. Mozilla, Open Office and some others
must have had serious UX involvement. Secondly, if it doesn't already
exist, I wonder if there's the potential for us to structure some kind of
virtual agency that would allow us to engage effectively.

Few thoughts

- In my opinion, several OS projects are incredible achievements that are
hampered by small usability problems or even just language issues.

Differnce between user interface and interaction design?

Hi, Folks -

Just curious how some of you would differentiate an interaction designer
from a user interface designer? Apologies if it's been discussed to
death before. Looked quickly on the discussion archive and didn't see
anything.

Cheers,

iPhone SDK

So, are any of you excited by the opportunities offered by the SDK
announcements yesterday? Having access to multi-touch, gestures, the
accelerometer, and location-based services—the possibilities for
innovative, or at least unique/interesting/fun interactions has me
salivating. I know nothing about Objective-C, but I sure am tempted
to get my feet wet.

"Confirm password" field - Superfluous?

I have a design for a new user registration form in which I am proposing to
not use a "Confirm password" field and would like your feedback on this
decision.
The form will have 4 fields, all of which are required:

1: User name (This will be supplied to the user prior to their using this
form)
2: Password
3: Hint question
4: Hint answer

The form also has some explanatory text that describes the use of the hint
question and answer which is that the pair of fields will be used when the
user forgets their password.

Examples of Good Customer Support Sites

When users can't find the help they need contextually and land on a
customer support site, how can we create a good experience for them?

I've been looking at:

Adobe
http://www.adobe.com/support/

Apple
http://www.apple.com/support/

Amazon
http://tinyurl.com/2wwact

Does anyone have examples of effective customer/technical support
sites?

I'm interested in best practices on surfacing relevant help
topics/tools to users so they can self-serve with ease.

Thanks!
