"Design" ... What's up w/ Digital Design?

In the spirit of Ziya's "I'm a designer" pitch. I recently wrote an
article that addresses this concern within what I am calling the digital
design community.

Vive l'ergonomie?

Hey folks -

I guess today's my day to open my trap on IxDA, which I haven't done in ages (*waving hello to everyone*)

So, question of the day: what can you guys tell me about the state of our field in France?

Back story: In my years in this community and on this list, I've met designers from many other countries, but never from France. And now I've got a new job building a design organization in a largely French software company.

Visually boring wire frames and charts

I am looking for inspiration to help me break out of my rut of generating wire frames and charts that are functional, but visually boring. Some individuals just have the knack to see and present data that doesn't put you to sleep. Datavisualization Yodas' if you will. Can you recommend some web sites, books or whatever that show examples of information relationships depicted in a visually appealing way. I have completely enjoyed the pattern libraries and I am hoping for the same when it comes to data.

Usability and Innovation (was Interaction design vs. Usability -> differences in competency)

I don't want to speak for him, but I think Nico's point is that people
tend to gravitate to what they are used to and usability is mainly
concerned with that: whether or not a product responds in an expected
way. If everything acts as expected, then many fewer innovations would
be made.


BTW, Nico is chairing a panel on Beyond Human-Centered Design at DIS
(with Robert Reimann as a panelist).

One button mouse (was Menu bar on Macintosh)

The original SRI mouse (Engelbart, et al, mid-1960's) had one button.
By 1968, it had three buttons. Only the left button was used in
conjunction with pointing. The other two buttons were used to confirm
and cancel actions.

In 1974, at Xerox PARC, I implemented a prototype of the Gypsy text
editor that introduced drag-select and needed only one button. (The
final version of Gypsy, 1975, which I developed with Tim Mott, used
all three buttons because they were there.)

In 1981, Xerox shipped the Xerox Star with two buttons.

Apple's mouse first appeared on the Lisa.
