Snivelling about capitalism... was Primary interface

I can't take it anymore. I've tried to be politically correct, but I'm
incapable. I'm relableling this thread to what people really want to talk
about, "Snivelling about capitalism..." and automation.

Why is everyone so offended that companies do everything they do to make
money?

Businesses, with rare exceptions like Ben & Jerry's (who already have enough
money), ONLY want to maximize profits.

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.
TIA,
David

Forms design - I'm researching and need help

Where are we on forms design today?

How far have we come on designing effective, intuitive, intelligent web forms? I'm researching forms design, both best practice and the more innovative ones. But I'm having a hard time finding really good examples.

HiOscar the insurance company is one example with some innovative qualities and certainly worth a study. But I'm searching for more advanced forms with higher complexity.

Continuous Scroll

As supported in the Sympony Open-Source PHP Web Framework, "Ajax Pagination"
allows the client browser to load the content gradually as the user scrolls
down to the bottom of the web page. Once the vertical scrollbar reaches the
bottom it triggers a new page to load. Unlike its common use in separate
frames(i.e. the inbox of Hotmail Live), ajax pagination(weird name) attaches
a new full page to the end of the current one.

Can an interaction designer creat (great) interaction without (great) visual design skills?

Hi all,

in my daily work as an interaction designer I mostly create wireframes and
support the visual designers in their creation of the visual design for
these wireframes.

I notice though, that there is a strong dependency on how/if the interaction
will work and the (eventual) visual design.

My question: can an interaction designer create great working interaction
without having visual design skills?

Kind regards,
Rein Groot
