Prototypes, process, and ID

We create all of our prototypes in HTML and we throw ALL of them away.
We make prototypes in HTML for web applications, desktop applications,
mobile phones (sometimes), and touch screens. It has worked wonderfully.
We prototype very early and make our prototypes look like crap ...with
everything in grey and lots of smoke and mirrors.

How did you first get into interaction design?

I recently wrote a post about how I became an application designer. Originally I worked as sound designer/ editor for games in Los Angeles, and had a need for tool to help my colleagues and I on job, that I managed to design and develop.

Jobs, Events and Plug

Seems like it's high time to get the Jobs, Events and Plugs postings
their own email list and make sure people know how to set their
subjects lines so they got filtered properly. Having these things
constantly pop into one's a mail client is getting really tedious.

Just my two cents.

Survey on Prototype—chance for a free copy of the book

I'm looking for some input on different techniques and tools people
are using, as well as issues they've run into with prototyping.

Here's your opportunity to provide some input and have a chance at a
free copy of the prototyping book, expected later this year. I've got
a short, 5 page, survey — answer all the questions and you'll be
entered into a random drawing for a free copy of the book.

Change layout and add features

Hi All

I am working on a site where we are giving choose layout options (i.e 2
column or 3 column layout) as well as select feature options and the preview
depending on selections.

Here I would like to know, what should be the flow of information. Whether
user select layout option first, then select features and then preview or
select features and then change layout and preview.
