Slider orientation best practice


Following on from the interesting pagination thread yesterday, I was
wondering about best practice in using sliders (e.g. like the jQuery
UI slider mentioned http://docs.jquery.com/UI/Slider), particularly in
relation to orientation.

For a project I'm working on I'm considering using one to scroll
through a list of messages (e.g. tweets), sorted by time. The tweets
will display vertically, with the latest at the top.

Wireframing on the iPad?

(I atone in advance for this topic's platform-specificness.)

I was wondering if anyone who owns either iMockups[1] or Omnigaffle for the iPad[2] could pipe up with their thoughts and comments? I've been doing some very rough wireframe sketching using the free Adobe Ideas app, but have been looking at both of these apps as my next purchase.

iMockups is $10, so there isn't as much of an investment lost if it isn't an effective tool.

NYC February '08 event: Kudos all around!

Kudos all around for a wonderfully successful event in New York City
last night!

We had about 35 people attend David Lipkin's very thoughtful and well-
designed presentation on "The Interaction in Interactive TV". You
could have heard a pin drop in there last night.

Special props to:

-- David himself, who was an absolute trooper to come and pull this
off, seeing as he was barely surviving day four of the horrendous flu
going around. Many, many thanks David!

-- Icon Nicholson, for being the quintessential host.

pattern or feature inventory (as in content inventory)

I appreciate the responses so far.

Allow me to reframe this question: I am looking for a method to capture and
present interactive elements on a competitor's site.
I'm thinking of an interaction designer's version of the IA's content
inventory. I want to inventory interactive features, rather than content
and links. Any ideas?

For example, in a previous job I had TechSmith's Morae(R) which would allow
me to capture dynamic aspects of an interaction, or an entire experience. I
do not have Morae now.

emotive interaction design


MIT Media Lab is trying yet again to push the boundaries of human-computer
interaction and this time studying the emotive relationships between man and
machine ... What do people think about this direction of trying to create
emotional relationships thus anthropomorphizing the machine to an "equal" to
the user. Is this an inevitability? or is it truly sci-fi? Are there places
today where this already exists?
