Cringely on the Flash future of GUIs


It's mostly about business reasoning but he has some things to say
about what Adobe's apparent business model would mean for GUI
development, deployment and use.

any keyboard usability info on Kindle?

I'm wondering if anyone has any study results regarding the usability of the Kindle keyboard. I'm concerned that the keyboard might be too small (hard to read and cramped) for an elderly person with visual/physical impairments.

Reviewers needed: interactive showcase

Greetings, I am looking for leaders in our community who can represent interaction design from various angles to review case studys for a new event within our local experience design community called "Exhibit A: The 2004 Interactive Showcase" http://www.aigaminn.org/exhibita/

This is a new event for us, our committee has spoken at length to those involved in the DUX and CHI case study format and tried to model our entry along the same lines although a little less intimidating to the average practitioner.

Examples for data-mining UI


I'm looking for examples or comments that would guide me in the right
direction to solve the following problem (I'm not an experienced UI

We are developing an application used to administer and browse data
around a data-mining system.

At the core of the system are the objects. Examples are Customer,
Product, Vendor, Department, etc. Each such object have different set of
attributes (name, address, price, etc).

The objects are then categorized along different "dimensions".

Is blogging about work OK?

Hi There

Here's a question to all the avid bloggers on this list.

How do you draw the line between what work related stuff you can blog
about? Since most of us do interaction design at work, and talk about the
same one way or the other in our blogs, where do you draw the line?

Is it OK to share exciting details of how they brainstormed about a
particular problem, or a simple usability tweak in that took a solution from
usable to delightful?

NYC February '08 event: Kudos all around!

Kudos all around for a wonderfully successful event in New York City
last night!

We had about 35 people attend David Lipkin's very thoughtful and well-
designed presentation on "The Interaction in Interactive TV". You
could have heard a pin drop in there last night.

Special props to:

-- David himself, who was an absolute trooper to come and pull this
off, seeing as he was barely surviving day four of the horrendous flu
going around. Many, many thanks David!

-- Icon Nicholson, for being the quintessential host.

IA Wiki 2.0? (was Prototypical)

> what I would rather see is a live document (e.g. a Wiki) ...

I also think this is a great idea. Wasn't there already an IA Wiki?
Seems to be dead now.

Seeing as I never used it, either, there must have been something
wrong with it. What was it? Too little promotion? Not enough
participation? Bad IA? As I recall it was loaded up with content at
the beginning and rarely updated.

One problem is that our community might not be big enough to reliably
and continually generate rich content.
