Technical skills of an Interaction Designer

Hi all,
as Interaction Designer I think it's a foundamental matter to have a deep knowledge of  "how it works behind the scenes" what we design for people to use.

The question is: which language (HTML, Java, Javascript, DHTML...) do you think an Interaction Designer should be fluent in and at which level?

Thanks,

Silvia

Photoshop stops pasting from Clipboard

Hi all,

Anybody solved the mysterious Cut n' Paste abandonment issue with Photoshop CS4 and CS5?.

I heard it's actually a Windows problem...something about Photoshop keeps 'listening' for the clipboard, but Windows ignores the request after a while, something to the effect.

Anyway.
Here is the scenario:

No matter how much you talk about User-Centered Design, it only really makes sense within the framework of Value-Centered Design:

Creating Design Documents for an iPhone App

Another iPhone app question for you folks. Interally we got the go ahead to run with our app. To get this far I had used vector and photoshop assets found on the web to create concept screens, which worked quite well. Basically I made comps in Illustrator and imported them into InDesign with very little annotation at this point (again just concepts.)

Wireframe Templates in Visio

Hello,

I have been actively following this group for months. Very good
resource.

I am interested in examples of using Visio as a tool beyond workflow
diagraming.

Does anyone have examples of using Visio as a tool for creating
wireframes? I currently use Illustrator for my wireframes - the big
downside to this application is the difficulty in multiple page
formatting for wireframes.

Thanks in advance for your advice and examples!

Marking Required vs. Optional form fields

When creating a form, do you feel that it is more advantageous to mark
the required fields, even if they are in the majority? I ask because
I'm working on some guidelines for a client, and there is some debate
about which way to go with this. After reading Luke Wroblewski's book,
"Web Form Design: Filling In the Blanks", I have to agree with his
sentiment about indicating the MINORITY of the form elements:

FROM 'Web Form Design': "Many times there actually are
good reasons for indicating what is required when updating or creating a
record online.

good examples of online advertising

Hello all

I am looking for Interesting, fun, rich, interactive (anything really)

requires featured space (ads to inspirational content) in order to break the
user's normal purchasing habits (in an attempt to increase average order
value)

Any examples of good online advertising?

(No static banners ads please)

Many thanks

Defining a UX vision

Does anyone have any samples of a good UX vision statement? Everyone
talks about how important it is to have a good UX vision, but I
can't find anything that defines exactly what a "good UX vision"
is. I've been trying to develop one from scratch and I'm not sure
how it should be structured or what it should contain. Should it
contain specifics like "we need a dedicated UX group in our company
that all our design teams can use"? I don't want it to be
product-centered, because we build a whole range of applications.
