The iPhone Ajax buzz continues. Joe Hewitt (Firebug) writes about the
new multi-touch events that he hopes show up:

I've read lots of people, while arguing for why iPhone web apps are
lame, assert that web apps won't be able to take advantage of the
iPhone's multi-touch screen. This is nonsense.

The website A List Apart reposted an article by Scott Cohen about the
apparent curse of information design (see

PPT as art

A little break ... http://wired.com/news/culture/0,1284,61485,00.html

David Byrne of the Talking Heads is making PowerPoint Art. I found this
interesting, especially in light of the talk about tools being used outside
their intent.

Do you know a good HTML person?

Could anyone here recommend a professional HTML coder available for a
small gig? An interesting (really) bootstrap startup developing an
enterprise social software platform is looking for an HTML person. We
have UI/Interaction design, thank you - that would be me - but we need
some HTML done by a person who knows his CSS and JQuery. Both social
gaming and enterprise interfaces are possible good backgrounds (told
you it's interesting). It's going to look great on his/her

Is there a common name for the collection of media player controls?


Is there a common name for the collection of buttons usually near the
bottom of media players? I am speaking of FFW, RWD, Play, etc. for apps
like iTunes and Windows Media Player. The name I am looking for should
describe the entire collection of buttons. The first that came to mind
was "media player controls" but I am fairly certain I just made that up.

Is there an interactive newspaper

Looking at the different designs for newspapers and the way different
cultures interact with the different formats, I arrived at a question
which i wanted to pose for discussion.

What is an interactive newspaper, is there an example of an
interactive newspaper?

How can we as designers rethink of new ways to allow the users to
gather their own news into a platform?

Taking into consideration the cultural and social aspect of the
newspaper how can we devise a universal newspaper which can afford
different language while still retaining the pictorial and visual

Speaking of Data Visualization

For those so inclined, I recently (last week) got a copy of "Data Flow:
Visualizing Information in Graphic Design" which is all about data
visualization in graphic design - but since many here at one point or
another are asked to do something related to visualizing complex data sets -
you may find some of examples are innovative and effective ways of
communicating and could be useful in your work.

R&#233;p. : DISCUSS: Electronic medical records: bad, ugly, and dangerous?


I've been reading up on the EHR projects in Canda for the last few years and I've also read up a bit on EHR systems in the US.

I wasn't able to read the entire article, only page three, but from that and your summary I can guess that this particular Washington Post article is a dog's breakfast of grievances and IT scandals. I've read much better stuff on EHR projects in the NY Times, and you don't have to register for it.

There are some places in the US where EHR projects have been successful and useful, two different things.
