Boolean AND & OR in a graphical user interface

Hi everybody,
let me introduce myself: I'm studying Interaction Design in Rome, and
I've been a lurker of this list for about a year.

My question is: what's the best (most intuitive and effective) way to
represent Boolean AND and OR operators in a GUI, in your opinion?

Some background information: the user is not familiar with Boolean
logic, and he needs to choose from a closed set of about 10 different
options, combining those options with AND and OR logical operators.

Any examples or ideas?

I hope my question doesn't sound too silly. Thanks in advance for your help.

HCI software tools/applications

Hi All,

Can anyone please point me to some exhaustive resources that list various
HCI software tools available for the following categories: a) user task
gathering and analysis, b) UI interface development, and c) usability
testing/evaluation on interfaces? For example: DENIM/SILK can be used for
quick prototyping http://dub.washington.edu/denim/research/, TechSmith's
Morae can be used for in-lab usability testing
http://www.techsmith.com/morae.asp etc.

Desktop GUI prototyping tools...


Any recommendations on GUI prototyping tools specially for desktop
application prototyping. I could find a good list at
http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?GuiPrototypingTools and am looking at any feedback
on the ones listed or maybe a new tool not listed there but somebody has
used and strongly recommends.

The need is to capture the paper prototypes into higher fidelity prototypes
that can be tested and reviewed before getting commited for actually coding.

to future products [offline products with internet connectivity] and what could be the role of
UI designer [Or some Designer - but dont get me started on that]

The project is about a recruitment section of a corporate site and will include pretty much dynamic content and some flash elements.
