Storyboards in Balsamiq?

Does anybody actually use the links in Balsamiq Mockups to make
storyboards that can be walked through to show the interaction of a
system? I looked at all the examples in the Balsamiq Mockup gallery and
they all seem to be single screens (except for one which shows a
Google-like interface with the first search-box screen and then a
search-results screen).
I'm wondering if folks use Blasamiq for actual storyboards, with links,
and branching, or if the predominant use is with independent un-linked
screen sketches.

Two column form layout

Hello everyone,

Does anyone know of any data, or have an opinion, about laying out forms in
multiple columns?

At my job, the business is constantly complaining about all the white space
on the right side of a long form when I lay it out in the standard way.
Arranging the labels and inputs into two columns, flowing from left to
right, seems an obvious solution to the problem.

Severity/Priority criteria for UX/usability issues

Hi all,

We have a set of standard criteria for classifying the severity of an issue, eg for 'major' or 'sev-2':

The Application, or an essential part of it, is not working or working with reduced functionality.  However, the error is not seriously impacting the business because there is a practical bypass.  For example:

Loan Calculator

Scenario: A loan calculator (for amounts under $50,000 / £25,000)

Option A:
Two sliders (with associated input fields) one for total amount,
second for duration.
Moving the sliders affects a results panel which shows amount
repayable per month & total cost of loan.

Option B:
Three sliders, as option A but this time also including a 'monthly
amount' slider. Moving 'amount' and 'duration' moves the 'monthly
amount' automatically.

Interaction Design Career Path

Hi all.... I can't remember whether there was a conversation about career
paths in our realm, so I thought I would start one. Currently I am a senior
IxDer and starting to plot out my career path. Would love to hear from
those who were in my shoes before that made the transition to the next step.
I'm curious as to not only your personal view on the career path, but the
employers' view on career paths in this realm too.
