That's an interesting proof-of-concept. Right now it's unusably slow, which I suppose is what you get for on-the-fly bytecode munging. I have doubts as to whether you'd ever be able to do the kind of high-speed real-time stuff that people write Flash/FLEX for, but possibly a cross-compiler would work.

The biggest problems

Aside from hate on User Centered Design, and perhaps more seriously, the looming global economy crisis, I'm interesting in hearing what IxDAers think are the largest problems facing the IxD practice today. Anyone have any thoughts?

the participants?

interested in your thoughts on this one...

Looking for an older quote from Gillian Crampton-Smith

I came across this quote in 1998 or so, from Gillian Crampton-Smith, then of RCA. I used it in a magazine, Turn Signals, that I was working on at the time, but don't have that particular issue any longer, and I can't remember the quote.

It had something to do with creativity in design (I think) and being prompted by "sand in the emollient flow" - I most definitely remember the use of "emollient."

My Google-fu has totally failed me; I've scanned my hard drive, etc. I'm going to reach out to IUAV but my hopes are low.
