Designing for change (was: JOB: Interaction designer for GoDaddy.com)

Schwab.com has done a pretty good job of managing change on their site. They
announced the pending change on the "positions" page months before they made the
change, complete with a link to see the new page (not a screen shot, but an
actual page with your stocks). Now, months after the change, they still have a
link back to the old page.

The changeover was done in the light of day, not overnight. It was introduced
and explained, and users had plenty of time to get used to it. Personally, I
love the new page and always went right to the new version after it was

Design in Japan?

Hello, I'm a fledgling IxD student, and I am very interested in what's going on in Japan as far as Interaction Design and HCI goes. So far I have heard of only a few companies like Axis Design Japan, and the ones listed on UXmap.com. Does anyone know what the industry looks like there? Have some of you worked in Japan?

Display of values as continuous gradient...

Anyone have a good algorithm (or aware of reasonable conceptual
heuristic) for displaying continuous data as a "gradient?"

I have a set of data points along a continuum which cluster modally.
Displaying the modes as hot spots on a continuum has been proposed as a
display that would resonate with our users (like blue to red for rare to

Pointers to Tufte-esque senstive discussions of the algorithms that
would support such a display would be appreciated.
