Franklin Institute looking for HCI Nominations

I almost never forward stuff like this to the list, but I felt that for the
Franklin Institute to be taking the time out to focus on HCI this year, is
definitely worth our attention as an event in and of itself and then by
helping it by participating in that process if you want/can.

For those not familiar.

Re: [IxDA] How else can you say login and register

Devil's advocate: but language evolves. (Going to eat some pseudo-academic crow now...) Thank the lord for Daniel Webster - BUT appreciate the ability of language to adapt.

Simulate high resolution display (e.g. a videowall)

Hello,

We're currently developing an application which (just one of the features) shows a interactive map on a videowall.

This videowall has a very high resolution but is constructed out of pretty old displays/tubes. Together these displays form a high resolution; I don't know the resolution exactly, but starting Microsoft Word shows a small window in the upper left corner of the videowall. I will lookup the resolution next week.

Stock Exchange ticker widget/module?

This may be an odd question here, but I figure someone might have had experience with this...

I'm in the process of updating our Investor Relations pages and I'd like to pull in a ticker not unlike that in the upper right corner of: http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/IR/ and http://investor.symantec.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=89422&p=irol-irhome (this is Edgar-online, from what I can tell, a pay-service).

The issues I'm having are:

Form, Meaning, and Behavior (RE: Patri archs of the Design Family)

Terrific points, Kristoffer (and I agree that for
design of interactive devices, ID and IxD must work
hand-in-hand).

Meaning does, I think, have a close relationship
to behavior, because meanings of actions as well
as meanings of presented information/objects must be
interpreted by users. Research by Clifford Nass and
Byron Reeves chronicled in _The Media Equation_
suggests that people may naturally (but subconsciously)
interpret the actions of interactive systems in
anthropomorphic terms-- in other words, as if they
were performed by human-like intelligences.
