FW: Fitt's Law and such [was: Mac OS X...]

Correction 1:

I should say "heart of the ^^current implementation^^ of the dock-locked trash."

I can see a solution in actually anchoring the trash-targeted end of the dock. That plus always treating the zone of the fully
'natural-sized' trash as it's active zone (even if the visual extent is smaller) might remove the necessity for the extra subgoal.

The same accomodation is available for the desktop trash -- having extent that extends to the edge of the screen even if located a
short distance from it.

I'm sure there'll be a second correction.

Social Network Open Source Platform - Recommendations?

I am looking for a Social Networking Platform (LAMP preferably) - Open
Source would be ideal, which will allow the user to see a specific
template once they login, dependant upon the domain they align
themselves to during sign-up.

The user chooses an email username, which is then attached to one of
200 domain names. This domain is branded and the user sees this once
they login through the main portal.

Any pointers?


ps: as for assigning email addresses - I am open to taking advice
here too!! :)

Patiens Virtus Est (Conan Update)

In other words, forewarned is forearmed.

When the new ixda.org launches Sometime Sunday, a body of the
Interaction '10 videos will be present in the Resources section.
Needless to say, the complexity of getting all 60 or so videos
titled, tagged, compressed, and uploaded takes time & bandwidth.

So it is likely that the IxDA '10 videos will be in the process of
being uploaded early next week, rather than at launch time.

MessageHi Frank

You wrote:
Yes, most of us are after better products from a usability and visual design perspective. However, don't you think that all designs should be evaluated based on unique, pre-identified success metrics?

***Certainly, this makes sense.

For example, an interactive design submitted to Comm Arts is probably going to have success metrics skewed toward innovation in the visual design realm. In that realm, text on gifs *could* be evaluated as good design if extensibility, download time, etc.

Search & Results for Superseded/Replacement orAlternative Items

I recall seeing something like this when I was configuring a computer. I
had selected a piece of software at a late stage of the configuration
wizard that was not compatible with some hardware selected at an early

If I remember correctly, the system allowed me to continue with the
wizard but clearly marked the offending item as incorrect. It explained
why the conflict occurred and offered a link to the previous step.

1st reminder: CALL FOR PAPER: aaate 2009 conference

Hello there,

I already posted this last month, but there could probably be someone new in the Forum who could be interested, so I'm re-posting this call for paper.

I also take the chance to launch a proposal: It'd be cool to meet if some of you is working in Italy. Just come up in some way and we'll try to arrange something.

Security on the web: how far do we go?

My girlfriend is on a business trip in another country, and she was trying
to book herself a plane ticket back (her stay was longer than expected). She
tried to login to the travel company's web site, but she wasn't sure about
the username (picked by her company) and password (she has several), so she
failed the login 3 times. Without any notice, her account was blocked and
she was told to contact the admin/support tu unblock it.
