examples of practical research Ph.D programmes

The Media Arts and Sciences program at the MIT Media Lab is where I
got my MS and PhD degrees. The program is highly oriented toward
synthetic (making) rather than analytic (theorizing) degrees. More or
less, if you can't demo it you can't graduate with it.

I'm pretty sure few people would regard what the Lab does as
"practical," though. The practical side-effects are really
unintentional.

Hope that helps,

I've started research style guides but thought I'd ping the expertise of this group as well. So here are a few questions...

Accessibility issues regarding tree view

Hello everyone,

Are any of you familiar with accessibility issues regarding using tree
views on the Internet? I know that not everyone on this list are big
fans of tree views at all, and that tree views have some usability
problems that affect both those who suffer from disabilities and those
who do not alike. However, I am at the moment only interested in any
issues that affect only users with some kind of disability or affect the
disabled significantly more than people who do not have any
disabilities.

When a widget is just not right ( was RE: [ID Discuss] Re-orderingrows in a table.)

I agree Dave. And besides ... the checkbox idiom is exactly what's desired here.

Sandeep wrote, relevant to the option using shifting:

Why in the world must the user be limited to selecting one row (i.e., in a radio button group) for the shift operation? And
would the rows thus selected have to be contiguous at the outset?

IM and Command-Line Interfaces

Interesting post by Tim O'Reilly makes the connection:

http://radar.oreilly.com/archives/2006/04/im_and_the_command_line.html

Mixing command-line simplicity with natural language sometimes makes
sense.
