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?

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,

Scott DeMers

filtering search results in this shop.

On the results page user gets list of products passing criteria, and the
filter box on the top.

Filter box consists of currently selected criteria's list and sub-boxes -
there is list of available selections with checkboxes in every one.

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

Why has micro-blogging become so popular

Hi,

I can relate to people asking questions, posting experience/views,
promoting product/ideas etc; in blogs. What I cannot understand is why
"What are you doing right now" (Twitter, Pownce, Jaiku) has become so
popular.

What value does micro-blogging add which conventional blogging lacks?

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!

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!

Best practices for designing Terms and Conditions/Customer Agreement Interactions

I'm looking for any research or information on best practices for designing interactions where users have to accept some legal terms and conditions.  For instance - what are the advantages/disadvantages of presenting terms to the side of the main form vs. below or in a pop-up?  Or - if the terms are going to be in a scrolling window, are there any guidelines about how big that window should be?  How many lines should show at once relative to length of the whole agreement?

design exercises and/or portfolio review during interview

Hi all, Have any of you ever given design problems/exercises to someone interviewing for an Interaction design position? If so, how well did that work, and how did you come up with the design problems? It seems that the design problems cannot require a lot of background about the users or specialized domain knowledge since we have limited time with each candidate.

One person has suggested to me that reviewing a candidate's portfolio would be a better approach. I was thinking a combined approach might be useful. What do you think?

All ideas and experiences welcome!
