open discussion vs. community of practice?

Hey there,

In a bar w/ two blokes and one of them says, "I don't think you can
have both an open discussion list and a community of practice."

I've been scratching my head ever since.
Yes, first we need to figure out what a CoP REALLY means, so maybe the
discussion in this thread could start there. It is also a thread about
what do we want IxDA to become.

on your mark, get set, go!

Narey, Kevin

Publicly available video resource?

Does anyone know of any publicly available user video resource?
I'm looking to include a clip of an animated user using a poorly designed
application in a presentation I'm hoping to give to my business.

Any assistance will be gratefully received.

Ok, more twitter articles in the mainstream press, now from C|Net

Even our future president (G-d! I'd love to be able to aggregate--and I bet
there is a tool to do it--all those tweets that start, "When Obama is
President ...") is on Twitter.


The article is about how Twitter will go mainstream as we move generationaly
away from email and towards SMS.

Apple Content vs. the rest of the world (was iPad.

The larger issue at hand is the way the iPad handles files in general.
It seems there's no way for files to be shared from app to app
without the need to connect to a network file server.

Your point is fine, but it wasn't the point I was making.

Selling Interaction 10 to Management

Howdy folks... looks like there's a potential light at the end of the
tunnel, and my company may pay once again for a conference trip. So, in
order to do that I kind of have to provide a written "sales" pitch to my
management. Yuck. Anyone have anything "templatized" that I could borrow?

Need help with a directory style menu

Okay, I've managed to design myself into a corner and need help
getting out. I'm working with a maps database that allows the user
to create nested folders for organization. I'm limiting them to two
nested folders, but even so, this creates a situation where some
folders merely contain other folders.
