like that - specifically while deciding the voice persona.

Best Indesign book for wireframing

Any ideas on the best books to get me up to speed?

Results of the IxD Survey

Here are the results! Thanks so much for the great response. One
thing: I wanted 50 responses and somehow SurveyMonkey let 51 through.
At any rate:


Very interesting results. I'm sort of kicking myself for not adding
"contextual inquiry" to the list of user-research methods. Several
people added it in the "other" category. :)

Thanks again!

check-out and trust (was...Google Checkout's credit card widget)

to bring a new flavor to an older thread...

I work in ecommerce and get motion sickness everytime we work on checkout.
It's such a dinosaur to me. So many parts of it are vestigial. No one can
make a clear case for the features or path, and since they don't understand
them they're not going to change them. You can see so many places to
improve it, and encounter so much inertia when you try.

One button mouse (was Menu bar on Macintosh)

The original SRI mouse (Engelbart, et al, mid-1960's) had one button.
By 1968, it had three buttons. Only the left button was used in
conjunction with pointing. The other two buttons were used to confirm
and cancel actions.

In 1974, at Xerox PARC, I implemented a prototype of the Gypsy text
editor that introduced drag-select and needed only one button. (The
final version of Gypsy, 1975, which I developed with Tim Mott, used
all three buttons because they were there.)

In 1981, Xerox shipped the Xerox Star with two buttons.

Apple's mouse first appeared on the Lisa.

In search of: User administration IxD examples

Hey all -

I'm looking for worthwhile IxD examples in the realm of user
administration 'enterprise' database applications (think SQL Server). We're
revamping ours and some new(-ish) ideas would be welcome.

Main users would be DBA's or system administrators tasked with setting up
and managing roles, users, & groups and their privileges with respect to
read/write data access, object creation/modification, and the like.

Maybe Vista user administration is worth a look? Are there less-known apps
you may know of that do this particularly well?

First post: Hello, a question, and some online interactive 3D demonstrations

Hiya all,

I've just found out about this list, and am currently in the process of

A quick question... is it possible to set up the list so that the
reply-to tag is the mailing list e-mail address?

A quick introduction... I am director of a company that specialise in
interactive 3D visualisations of product designs, either online or
