TV production room interaction design?

Having spent many years as both an operator and layout designer of
control booths, I would advise getting to know each of the roles. Be
careful to observe how much light they have to work with under
working conditions, what workarounds they currently have in place and
especially, the moments when they need more than two hands. Find out
the best and worst stories: what causes a train wreck and what
careful choreography they pride themselves on when the time pressure
is on.

Help Me With My Experience Design Diagram?

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for some feedback on a model I'm building to explain the complexity of experience design. My theory is that in the communication business, we're all experience designers and that we come at that from different disciplines. To build the best experiences, we have to have time and space for collaboration. Nothing groundbreaking, but I'd like to bring some different teams together around a common goal.

I've got some feedback from people outside the field, but I'd really like to know what you think. The diagram and comments I've recieved so far are here:

Copyright Question

Hello all,

First of all, thank you in advance for any information.  I'm sure it will prove to be helpful, whatever the outcome.

Have any of you had an experience copyrighting a bit of web architecture?  I was reading up on copyright law, and it seems that once you create the bit of information, it is protected under copyright law.  You have to register it with the copyright office if you wish to persue litigation.

Designing the Obvious, coming to a bookshelf near you

If you're interested in finding new sources of debate and lively
conversation, you might pick up a copy of my new book, released today,
called Designing the Obvious. It discusses guiding principles of web
application design, but does so by pointing out concrete examples and
talking about how to reproduce the qualities that make web apps great.

The term "interaction design" is mentioned exactly once, on the second to
last page of the book ... I think.
