Considering the shelf-life that the floppy disk icon has had representing "save", I'm betting that the camera will be with us as a recognizable icon for a long, long time.

Field research question

Our user interface team is seeking information from those who have
conducted user research field studies - in particular, research and
interviews within people's homes.

For instance:
- How often have you conducted such studies?

- What examples can you point to as key benefits to doing field research?
(over lab-based near equivalents)?

- What kinds of problems have you encountered when doing such research?

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.

The "interaction" part of interaction design

I've noticed something over the years, and I'm curious about others'

Some of us refer to ourselves as "interaction designers", but very often, I
see deliverables for app designs that forget all about the "interaction".

For example, I recently saw design deliverables from a well-known firm in
which the designer figured out what needed to go into the app (and what
didn't), worked out the sitemap, and then laid everything out in a sequence
of wireframes.

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?

Can anyone recommend software that will do this automatically?
Preferably something I can run locally (for privacy / security
