The IxD of "Web 2.0" (was Bezos)

Hi everyone,

Very interesting thread, thanx Ziya!

I was going to add a related thread this morning about what is IxD's role if
any in helping to conceive, conceptualize, and design the behavior around
the semantic web. I was reading the interview with Tim Berners-Lee in the
MIT Technology Reivew (OK, I'm on the Delta Shuttle to Boston a lot and they
give these magazines away for free -- AND I'm a nerd) and he was talking
about building the Semantic Web. It was one a good introduction to it, but
also great to read a vision of it as opposed to techno-mumbo jumbo.

Thoughts on Adobe Reader X interface

Any comments on the Reader X interface particularily the "Simplified User Interface" - their tag line from their features page regarding the new reading mode. It might be easy once you know about it but I was about to pan one of our webapps in a usability review for viewing PDF's in the same browser window and providing the user with squat for functionality. I had just updated to the latest Reader without thinking prior to starting my review and it took me sometime to figure out what the problem was.

How can we establish the best design under technological constraint ?

I am working with an approach of solving strategic design decision under various constraints. Usually there is always a challenge for design managers to establish a design concept however revolutionary it considered. Often these revolutionary designs can not be fitted in to the scheme of implementation due to various constraints such as technology revamping, large amount of framework re-engineering, engaging cutting edge skill workers etc. Finally these outstanding pieces of creative effort become an overhead on budget.

How to consult as an IxDA?

I was recently asked how to get started doing contract/consulting work
as an IxDA (what type of business entity to form, what standard agreements to
use, etc.).

Does anyone know of a good reference site for this type of information? Any good pointers? I know this has been discussed before but I've never paid that much attention to it.
