What is the one *best* interaction design blog?

I'm updating my feed list. Typically, I find things through
serendipity or links-followed. I figured I'd ask the crowd for wisdom.

What is the one *best* interaction design blog that you absolutely must be read?

Mozilla Firefox - showing passwords

Hi, all

There was something on my mind for a whiIe and now I decided to ask: Has
anyone any ideea what in the world determined the makers of Firefox to
display all stored passwords on a user's computer just at 3-4 clicks away?
To me, it makes the feature of storing passwords almost useless.
I like to have things as simple as possible, so I generally choose to stay
'logged in' and have passwords remember and things like that.

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.

Do we need to understand the history of Interaction Design?

I recently attended the CHI2011 conference and one thing stood out for me. It was Bill Buxton's talk on "Creativity and History" and the Buxton Collection. For anyone who doesn't know, the Buxton Collection is Bill Buxton's personal collection of digital technology, collected over the past 30 years, which was on display at the conference.

Name Top Agile UX Consulting Firms

Hello all,

I'm looking for a "short list" of top consulting firm recommendations (Boston, NY area preferred, but US-wide is ok too) to consider from anyone who has had direct experience working with such firms that have really proven their worth to introduce and foster transormative work practice around Agile UX for web design/development teams. To help frame the scope of the consulting, I'm envisioning a 5-8 day cross-discipline/stakeholder workshop and educational service focused on agile UX and collabortive web product design/innovation.

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.

Touchscreen Examples

I'm looking for environmental touchscreen examples along the lines of the
Accenture Interactive Network installed at O'Hare last year:
http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=o'hare+touch+screen&w=all

Anyone familiar with other touchscreen examples that are somewhere
in-between your typical Walgreens kiosk and Jeff Han's multitouch demo (in
terms of complexity)? There was a nice IxDA thread about this a few years
ago, but I'm looking for more recent projects.

User Research: Three user groups, five hours. What would you do?

I am being given the opportunity to visit a client of our software to
do some user research. I have never been on site with any of our
clients before.

At this client we have 3 user groups two who do different tasks and
one super user who can do everything plus config.

I only have five maybe six hours depending on flights being on time
etc.

We have full access to both groups all day but I would like to send
them some sort of schedule so they are not just sitting around
waiting on us.

Goals:
1. Understand the users and how they use the software.
2. Uncover any pain points.
3.
