Natural Laws of Interaction (Was: About using Architecture as a model)

Hi there, sorry for the late subject drift.

I'm not sure about the qualitative / quantitative divide being the key
in determining the real stumbling block here. I do agree, however, that
our area is completely 'siloed' into specializations that are keeping
good design/architecture from happening. I like the qualitative and
quantitative assessment, but it proves, to me, to be more of a
perspective for strengthening the duality of the field and not
providing any real bridge amongst the various silos, never mind the
tech/art divide.

The main problem is the programming languages.

Creating color palettes

I'm in the progress of designing a set of charting, graphing, and data viz controls that will be incorporated into an enterprise Windows application that displays loads of financial data. I've looked at a lot of the 'out of the box' offerings, and while the functionality is largely passable, I haven't been particularly impressed with the aesthetics on most offerings. No hate mail please - I realize the "shiny" factor is more for my boss than for my users :)

Honoraria for remote usability study participants from multiple countries

I'm wondering how others offer compensation in remote usability
studies where participants are drawn from multiple countries. I've
been looking into PayPal, and we've used Amazon in the past but I'd
prefer not to tie people to a particular vendor/site.

JOB (contract, San Francisco, USA): ID/IA/IxD

Fluid's got a need for a stellar mid- to senior-level contractor for
immediate work with both an IA and IxD skill set. I'm sorry, we are
interviewing local (SF Bay Area, California) candidates only, due to
high-touch working style, tight communication needs, secret technical
hocus-pocus, and our shadowy subterranean lair. ;-)

Please respond to the email within this posting, not to me personally.

Wireframes Magazine


I am just launching a little experiment over at
http://wireframes.linowski.ca and I invite you all to share if you have any
interesting visual communication techniques. The idea is to find and share
new samples of design documentation coming from IA's, interaction designers,
and UX practitioners. The page view has been challenged with richer
interactions and so I still believe there is room to evolve our
documentation techniques.
