why frames are bad

I guess I'm feeling perverse today, but those poor downtrodden frames need a
defender! David said:

The reasons that frames don't work:

1. harder on searchengines
2. bookmarking becomes difficult
3. calculating frame sizes isn't x-browser equal
4. frames the way implemented in the HTML does not map to user expectations
in terms of scrollbar layout and what not

Strictly speaking, items 1 and 2 don't work well in most web STRATEGIES, but
this does not mean that web pages with frames don't display their content
just fine.

Masters Programs in Interaction Design (NYC - was Kansas)

Hey Ray -

As far as I know, here are your choices.

Interaction design program at SVA (new, fulltime (meaning no parttime
enrollment allowed))
NYU ITP (fulltime)
Parsons Design and Technology program (fulltime)

NJIT offers some kind of HCI program - this was too far off the beaten
path for me to look into, so I don't know much about it.

If you wanted to pursue a more general course of study (a general
design program with the thought of applying it to IxD on your own)
then Pratt would be another option.

Keyboards vs Joysticks

Earlier today an article appeared on Slashdot discussing "roguelike" games. The article subject itself isn't important, but the discussion it sparked was interesting. Because roguelike games use keyboard controls, a lot of posts were made regarding the superiority of keyboards over joysticks and other controllers. Personally, I can't stand keyboard controls. I get the value it offers with control options, but I've always found their use very awkward for anything beyond, say, adventure games (the old ones) or interactive fiction. Whar about those of you who make games?
