Not that there aren't problems with the Dock, god knows, but why do
you hit the wrong app?

Double search boxes? Best practices?

I'm working on a directory site that has company listings (that have
to be searched), discussions, and white papers. We have the issue of
the double search box i.e. search the company listings in the top
right corner, and discussion search in the middle. Are there any best
practices out there around that?

Reality vs. Theory

This is a great thread. It's a very broad (and deep) set of issues
that play into product, software, and system development, and it's (in
my opinion) almost entirely impossible to adequately discuss them
within the limited constraints of an email list like this.

to do list transitions/animations

I am looking for some good examples of transitions in a to do list when
items get removed and other items get added. I have looked at th yahoo
library of transitions and found the self-healing and fade out/in
transitions, but I am looking for examples of a more complicated case where
several to do items get removed at once and several other new ones get added
(i.e. when the user returns to the to do list after doing things elsewhere
in the app).

RE: [IxDA] Speaker for a Usability lecture at a large corporate event?

Hi Deb,

Can you describe the audience for this talk? Will your speaker address financial institution senior management, product managers, software developers, designers, all of the above? What is the purpose of the talk? What's the occasion? Defining the audience and purpose will help us make more meaningful recommendations for a speaker.

ixd deliverables ...

I am curious to know the types of deliverables that other designers here
deliver as part of their process, etc, how they are used, and how helpful
they are to the people who get them. I currently deliver hard composites (a
png of a design), working prototypes (working html, css, javascript), what I
have been calling "user stories" (a walk through of the interaction that the
user goes through to complete a task), and UI documentation that describes
how things should work at the developers point of view so that they can have
a clear understanding of how to build things.
