pattern or feature inventory

ia/IAs and d/Designers,
<no apologies for the cross-post>

Has any of you ever created a graphical inventory of features, design
patterns, or functional elements? If so, please share learnings or
examples. I'd like to hear what format you used, how you presented it, and
what worked or didn't?

I'm specifically considering an inventory of competitors websites. In this
case, if I cataloged patterns, I wouldn't be listing the explanation found
on a usual pattern library, but showing how they visually accomplish
something or behaviorally execute a transition.

Thank you.
Jay A.

Jay, if you are looking at a complete software solution which does both

good option (disclaimer: I haven't used it yet).

drop it into your slides
* Present: publishing options include SWF; standalone files for Windows, Mac
OS, and Linux; Microsoft Word, HTML pages, PPT (with the embedded flash

Defining the mental model

(I hope this isn't a duplicate message, but I didn't see the first one
go through.)

I'm fleshing out a structural definition of "mental model," and I've
posted what I have so far:

If any of you are particularly interested in the subject, I'd love to
hear some feedback on whether you think I'm dead-on, dead-wrong,
crazy, or have muddled things when I was trying to make them clear.

Livestreaming my UX research

Hi there!

I want to start UX research sessions on a mac, using Silverback. Is there any way of livestreaming these sessions to my collegues? Do I need seperate software to do this and if so, what software?

Has anybody got any experience with ScreenFlow?

Then, I want to do the same kind of research (screen capturing, video, audio & streaming) on a windows based laptop. Is there any relatively cheap windows equivalent? I've heard of Morae, but licenses for the Observer tool are far too expensive.

open discussion vs. community of practice?

Hey there,

In a bar w/ two blokes and one of them says, "I don't think you can
have both an open discussion list and a community of practice."

I've been scratching my head ever since.
Yes, first we need to figure out what a CoP REALLY means, so maybe the
discussion in this thread could start there. It is also a thread about
what do we want IxDA to become.

on your mark, get set, go!
