Tag cloud generators

Hi All,

I'm doing an evaluation of the publically accessible tag cloud
generators. Tagging is quite popular now, but most of the tagging
activities belong to folksonomy, which users tag manually. Tag cloud
generators are used to create tag clouds automatically. There are
ways to generate a tag cloud:

1. Given a piece of text, create a tag cloud according to the
frequency of the words.
2. Given a URL of a web page, generate a tag cloud based on the
existing links on that web page

I found several tag cloud generators on the web and use them for my
study.

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!

Books or articles that cover analysis of user/design research data well.

I put the call out yesterday via Twitter and thought I'd try to tap into the
IxDA community for more assistance... I'm looking for examples of texts -
books or articles (printed, journals, blogs, online magazines) - I'd happily
accept presentations - that provide good coverage of analysis of research
data.

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

What's the difference between Delete and Remove?

I was discussing this very question with some friends and co-workers and
wanted to get other designers thoughts on this one.

The definition of "Delete" includes remove;

Delete: to strike out or remove (something written or printed); cancel;
erase; expunge.

But "Remove" does not include "Delete";

Remove: to move from a place or position; take away or off...

(cursory search via Dictionary.com)

I think about deleting as removing too. But I think about removing as, well,
re-moving.
