ADMIN: Subject lines (was Re: (no subject))

Hi Gang,

Can I ask that people please be sure to add a subject line to their
message? This is obviously a helpful measure for everyone.

And yes, if you are replying to someone who made a mistake it is better
to add a relevant subject line than to leave the thread without one.

Thank you!

closed captioning

Thanks for all the really great threads. They help more than you know!

My question:

I am working on a long-term project that involves creating a series of
SCORM (shareable content object reference model) and 508 compliant
online training pieces for a government customer. Our latest project is
an animated software demo with zooms, captions, cursor recording, etc.
The movie is a SWF played in an HTML shell.

I recently pressed to add a expandable/collapsible closed-captioning
option. I did a little leg-work to find out the feasibility of this

How to hire a good IxD (RE: Eye tracking, how valuable is it?)

I second that!

My additional two cents:

As far as using portfolios to ascertain designer skill, I agree that
candidates should formally present their work. The difficulty is that
it is sometimes hard to tell what part of the work is actually theirs,
and also what the designer might have been capable of, were there

important to see how a designer navigates such constraints (since
they are a fact of life as an IxD), it's nice to see what they, by
themselves, without usability feedback, etc.

Brilliant Viral Video

I was blown away by the recent MoveOn.org customized video. Whether you are
for Obama or McCain, it seemed like a new level of sophistication in viral
marketing that is worth a serious look.

For those not in the US, MoveOn is a liberal organization that is supporting
Obama in the election.

In case you have not seen it yet, this is a video that is customized with
your name in the content of the video.
