patterns for simplifying preferences/options/configuration

i'm currently looking for some papers, articles, or other resources for
innovative and different interaction patterns for preferences, options,
and configuration settings. So far, I've only been able to locate a few,
and they're really not all that interesting...

anyone have any good references or information they would like to share?

thanks in advance.

Luke Wroblewski Interview Excerpt

IxDA Board Member Luke W on visual interaction design!

"Think of visual design as the “voice” of interaction design and
information architecture. It communicates the importance of (and
relationships between) the content and actions within an application."

people (we have an enormous user base ) ....... think of how many lives your

Four questions every UI designer and usability professional should be thinking about...

All of these questions are obvious and yet we still don't have consensus or
standardized solutions for them...

Lightbox modal dialog boxes, your feeling about them?

My sense is that as long as it isn't overused, the lightbox dialog
works well for providing essential information and/or interaction
without taking a user out of their primary flow. There are some good
examples in Designing Web Interfaces by Bill Scott and Theresa Neil,
and I've seen additional examples in the wild recently. I think it's a
familiar enough pattern that users understand it right away and know
how to interact with it, though I haven't yet tested it myself.

I'm designing a process at the moment that uses a lightbox dialog at a
critical point in the sign-in/registration process.

(Plug) Beyond Findability IASummit Pre-Conference Workshop

Hey IxD friends.

I know many of you are still drifting down from the mountaintop experience
in Vancouver, which truly sounded inspiring from the reports on Twitter and
what-not for those of us not able to attend. (I *must* make it to Savannah
next year!)

But we're already looking ahead to March.
