buy-in, consensus,etc. (was RE: Powerpoint vs. "regular" slides)

Excellent point. When I say "consensus", this is really what I mean.
I guess I'm accustomed to communicating with stakeholders, where
one facilitates buy-in by calling it "achieving consensus". :^)

I'm in no way in favor of design by committee, but am in favor of
bringing stakeholders into alignment with design decisions, via
whatever rhetorical means work best.

Signal Orange]

On the highest level, it's interaction between the organizers and the government.

At "some" level everything interacts with everything! I've heard people
say "The sky is interactive.. it changes and affects people!!" Still
doesnt make it interaction design. And splitting hairs like calling the
signal orange t shirts "experience design" and isnt really neccesary. I
mean can't fashion just be fashion? If you really want to... you can
find interaction designer in everything...

A few of us have been tossing ideas around for a few weeks, and we'd
like to get a group of LA IAs together to agree on a plan going
forward. No need to be a member of the Information Architecture
Institute. No need to be an IA. We welcome all those with an
interest in IA.

help: abstract user value naming?

I've got a little user experience puzzle, and was wondering if anyone
knows of some successful examples that have already tackled this.

Short(er) version of question:

What do you label, on screen, query parameters that are variables,
but are selected in a context that is extremely literal, and is
selected by an end user who is constructing queries for a group of
people? Example variables are "me," when me will be evaluated at
query runtime as the person running the query.

Regarding developing Usability Matrix

Hello all,

For a couple of weeks I had been thinking about developing a Usability
matrix which can be applied to any project in a product development /
software services company. The quest is to develop a standard set of
usability factors to measure the effectiveness of usability efforts invested
on a project. The main purpose is to measure and translate by what extent
the project success can be defined.

Livestreaming my UX research

Hi there!

I want to start UX research sessions on a mac, using Silverback. Is there any way of livestreaming these sessions to my collegues? Do I need seperate software to do this and if so, what software?

Has anybody got any experience with ScreenFlow?

Then, I want to do the same kind of research (screen capturing, video, audio & streaming) on a windows based laptop. Is there any relatively cheap windows equivalent? I've heard of Morae, but licenses for the Observer tool are far too expensive.
