FW: Illustrator vs Fireworks

"I've found that frames is one of the more difficult things for people
new to FW to wrap their heads around. Here's how I describe it: use
layers to organize your UI *structurally*; use frames to organize
your UI in *time*."

If you're interested in achieving this concept in Photoshop (CS2), you can
use the animation palette to create collections of visible layers, and then
step through the frames for presentation. (if I'm understanding the concept

Natural Laws of Interaction (Was: About using Architecture as a model)

Hi there, sorry for the late subject drift.

I'm not sure about the qualitative / quantitative divide being the key
in determining the real stumbling block here. I do agree, however, that
our area is completely 'siloed' into specializations that are keeping
good design/architecture from happening. I like the qualitative and
quantitative assessment, but it proves, to me, to be more of a
perspective for strengthening the duality of the field and not
providing any real bridge amongst the various silos, never mind the
tech/art divide.

The main problem is the programming languages.

add to favorites vs save for later

Any thoughts or articles on "add to my favorites" (as an action from a
product page) vs "add to my wishlist" (which I think is the same thing?) vs
"save for later" (as an action on the shopping cart page, a la Amazon)? Any
good design patterns for favorites? How should one access one's favorites
list at a later time? Has anyone studied conversion rates on these features?

Recommendation? Eye Tracking Device for Usability Test


We are researching about possibly purchasing eye tracking devices
(hardware and software) for usability tests. Any information about the following (or other
related information) is really appreciated:

- What are some of the companies you might recommend that are
selling these devices?

- What is the average cost?

- How easy or difficult is it to set up and use the device?

Thank you,

Finding fabulous fares is fun.

prototype philosophy

Great article on the business week site today about design...


Near the end of the article Claudia Kotchka talks about prototype workshops...

"Participants get scared using such rough prototypes to elicit
consumer feedback at the beginning, but they are won over when they
see the benefits of co-creation," says Kotchka.

means for gathering feedback

I'm looking various ways by which other interaction designers gather
feedback from stakeholders during the design and development process.
What I'm looking for are some effective ways by which feedback can be
elicited and managed internally and externally. At the end of the day
is red pen on print outs the best solution or do software based
solutions like Acrobat's feedback tools work better in the long run?
I haven't seen many other options out there for my stakeholders to
associate comments directly to parts of of the page, any suggestions?
