Google Docs & Spreadsheet is updated

I was really surprised to wake up to a new interface for Google Docs &
They now have a "navigation bar" on the left that uses expand/collapse
navigation of different classification types (not exactly folders,
though that is the title of 1 classification type). On the right is a
list of your docs and spreadsheets.

How do you avoid canned designs?


When you work on two sites that that share the same goals, top tasks
and audience; would try to come up with THE optimal architecture and
interactions for both and just play around with their
aesthetics/branding to make them look different? or would you
experiment with each of them until they end up with different layouts
that work?

This is becoming an issue with some of my projects, since I keep
reusing layouts that worked.

IxD Portfolio review resources

Can anyone suggest a resource for professional portfolio reviews? As
so many of us have migrated from other fields, creating a
straightforward portfolio is more difficult. The budding IxDA
mentorship initiative may eventually provide an opportunity here, but
I'm looking for something available now.

Moreover, I haven't found much in the way of IxD-specific portfolio
tips. (Thanks SCAD and this site for a couple good tidbits). Thanks
for any help anyone can offer.

Silverlight work?

Just curious if anyone on this list is working on anything substantial with
Microsoft Silverlight (http://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/). Have you
taken it beyond the marketing/early-demonstration/casual-game realm yet?

There appears to be some demand here in the Seattle area for people with
Silverlight development skills. I've been wondering what they're building.
I'm especially curious to learn about success creating rich internet
front-ends in Silverlight. Please brag or share links if you know of strong
work out there.

Form Field & Error Assistance Models


I am currently working on an information layer for web-based forms.

Wanted to see if people had seen examples of where field asstance or error
messages sit atop the form (in a layer) vs. showing the errors inline?

That or just good examples of inline errors and a statement of preference.

Trying to avoid page layout issues that would arise when long technial
error and
correction details thrown into the page, but also wanting to ensure
regardless of page position and when large grids vs.

Hello members,
I have changed the content of my webpage www.amroha.dk

With regards to links, I can paste your webpage beneath the 'Stuff about
Interaction Design....' if you want me to.

Please critize, praise, comment do whatever you want. After all I want my
