Another idea: Elastic Widgets for drawing wireframes easier

Hi everyone,

I'm very thankful for all the interest and feedback I have received from the
IXDA community about my table-based wireframe editor prototype. At the
bottom line, the initial idea has been criticized (justly) for its inability
to handle floating elements, which are common in Web 2.0 applications. On
the other hand, everybody liked the easiness of moving content assets
between table cells and the way how the assets got automatically aligned.

I have tried to combine the benefits of the two approaches (widget-based

Re: Reset Button Icon

RE: Reset Button Icon

If you're stuck in finding an icon do revisit the task flow and
the task goal, see if you can find alternate routes or solutions.

Also, consider an On-screen button.

Beauty and Transparency

I put together some bits and pieces related to our discussion of beauty and transparency.

Transparency
When we say transparent, do we mean invisible, as in Donald Norman's example
below?

New to the list: How to find an Interaction Design job

Hello all,

I am a C# developer in the Nashville area. After years of trying to instill interaction design principles into the company I work for, I have finally given up. This company develops software without ever consulting a single target user. The entire design process is left up the developers, and you can imagine what kind of product that turns out.

After going through a Cooper design course in 2003, I realized I was at the wrong company, but foolishly thought I could bring about change in the way we designed our products.
