"Results-Oriented" GUI?


So Nielsen is touting the new MS Office 12 UI changes. In the above article
he describes the changes to the Office UI citing it as a paradigm shift. He
also says something even more interesting to me:

" If anybody else introduced a new user interface paradigm, it would
probably remain a curiosity for years, but Microsoft Office has a special
status as the world's most-used interaction design.

Interview Excerpt: Marc Rettig

I've been fortunate to get some great interviews with interaction
design luminaries for my upcoming book. Most of the interviews have
been too long to publish in their entirety, so I'm excerpting them on
the book's website and including some (great) material that
unfortunately won't make it into the book.

I've just posted the first excerpt: an interview from Chapter 1 with
Marc Rettig, discussing the History and Future of Interaction Design.

Participatory design with paper prototypes

Hello everyone,

has anybody used participatory design combined with paper prototyping to gather insight as to the best interaction design solution?  

I'm specifically thinking of having users organize, in a guided session, paper widgets and content modules of different sizes to reflect the access they would like to see on the interface to different content items according to their needs and uses. This would be like an extension of conventional card sorting (which we have already done), but to gauge users' needs in terms of access and interaction with the contents.

RE: [IxDA] Right-hand navigation

I wrote an article on this a while back - it's not a definitive answer but addresses the suggestion that right-hand navigation might be more efficient.

However, I have to say that 'people usually figure things out' is not good evidence in favour.
