Dialog Position

Hello everyone :)

I'm working on UI for web application and I need to show several
dialogs, one of them is confirmation of deleting the file.
So I'm wondering -- what is the best position for modal dialog:
A. Center of screen
B. Near control that caused dialog appearance
C. Near mouse cursor position (in most cases it will be equal to B
since there is very little delay between action and showing dialog).

Thank you.

Best Small Business Platform?

I am looking to launch a boutique business website, which will initially offer sales for a single design product (hopefully more products will be offered in the future). Is Yahoo Small Business still considered the best platform for this kind of business? Does anyone have recommendations for how I seek out a great programmer, who can stick with me as a consultant as the business grows? 
Many thanks for your thoughts.

IxDa-er: 1st interview with Marketing..

Hi everybody,

I am now defining my function as an Interaction Designer of a medium sized (300+ employees) company. I have now my first conversation with Marketing. I think I want to hear how they are confronted with the need for an improved presentation and usability. I am curious to hear how the house style is developped to what it is now, what the design rationale is behind the current housestyle and where they think all products should go to (how much integration between products, how users should experience a software-suite etc).

Skip or not

I am working on a setup wizard for a consumer product. Somewhere
toward the end of the wizard we have a two-screen guided tutorial to
help users understand the main functions of the remove device (a
component of the product). My manager believes it is beneficial to
force users go through the tutorial and I am arguing to have a Skip
button available.

Since most users are not familiar with the remote, the tutorial
certainly becomes very useful to teach the person who set up the

What's next in my learning and how do I get it?

I thought I'd get people talking about what it is they are looking to learn and where they are hoping to learn it kinda question.

There's a lot of formal EDU in IxD being created all around the world, but obviously, not everyone can jump into a 1-2yr program. So my question is what do you think you need to learn to be a better practitioner of IxD and how do you want to learn it?
