Improving task flows

I've been trying to add more context to task flows.

I think more context is better, and I'm also gearing up for
documenting asynchronous web apps (RIAs and Ajax).

To add more context to task flows, I've differentiated between active
and passive tasks.

Richer distributed apps (was RE: web design)

<<While I did all the design work to make a frame-based chat system work in
a web browser for the last company I worked for, all I kept asking
was: "This is silly. Why don't we just make a thin-client and do this
right?" The whole frames thing really is a serious band-aid, and generally
points out that one is trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.

Bite the bullet. If your web app requires robust interaction, dump the

Prototyping tool is looking for a new name

Dear IXDA list

You may already know RapidRabb.it: it is a real time collaborative
online platform which enables individuals and teams to create
interactive web and software prototypes fast and easily, and to test,
discuss and optimize them.

Now, we are looking for a new name. Although we liked our current name
very much, it comes with some disadvantages that lead to this
decision: especially when talking on the phone, people do not
understand the name and the writing. In addition, some asked us
whether we are an Italy-based company, which we are not.

UX Show & Tell is a casual workshop that's all about the work. Show shortcuts. Ask what to annotate in a wireframe. Draft scenarios and user stories, and identify one from the other.

I work on interaction design for an engineering/design application. I would
like to get some feedback from the forum on how do you do your resource
estimates for your design tasks.

design and have trouble delivering our designs to the Development team on
