email address as username

I'm reviewing a web based blogging service. Currently on sign up, the
user has to enter a username, a display name and an email address. I
suggest that that username be replaced by the user's email address.
(from any email, say yahoo, gmail, hotmail, rediffmail, etc)
How would this impact the security of the product?

Research Frameworks - Definition, Examples & Creation?

Hi all,
This idea of the "research framework" has really gotten stuck in my mind
since we began altering our process here at Evantage. But here's the
problem... I don't have a specific definition of what exactly this means. So
I've made one up:

Research Framework: A collection of things to ask & things to observe in
particular contexts, along with contextually appropriate techniques for
doing so.

Branding - including .com in logo/name?

Hi folks,

This isn't necessarily IX, but maybe it is. I have a client who is working
on a new app, a portal. Let's say the name is "DirtyChicken". Their logo is
a simple logotype of "DirtyChicken.com"

I've always wondered if the ".com" is necessary in the logo - particularly
because it isn't .net or .org - .com being the most popular. It seems to me
that successful sites brand themselves as what they are indistinct from the
web address (even though the name is the same).

I have to take exception to the first part of this statement. I've been
working in interface design for some 14 years now, and interaction was
always a component of it.
