Need some help with Drop Down values

I think that the addition of a "I don't know" function would depend on
the particular question. If you were asking me "Are you going to
retire at 65?" I could easily see "Yes", "No", and "I don't know"
since I might be considering future economic changes that are not
entirely predictable (I can actually see "I don't know" as being the
most common answer for some age groups).

IPod ecosystem (NYTimes) - changes in all aspects of design

(registration/login required)

This NY Times article highlights the growing speed at which design and
implementation needs to occur in all aspects of product development,
especially when said product development is completely dependent on other
people's work.

The story is about iPod, but it could be about anything where someone is
taking advantage of someone else's success.

I think the mash-up phenomena needs to be cautious

Thanks to Whitney Hess, whose presentation on "Evangelizing Yourself"
motivated me to finally start a blog.

My first post is an editorial response to Jared Spool's panel at the
Ix09 conference, which asked where will we find the 10,000 new
interaction designers we need to meet the expected growth in our field.
Here's the link:


I would love to hear any feedback, whether as a comment on the site, a
message here, or a private e-mail.
