Another Flash-FLEX question - design books?

I promise this isn't related to my previous Flash question - just coincidence.

Are there books people would recommend that talk about how to create
good designs in Flash/FLEX. For example, there appear to be
particular ways one has to work with CSS to get the effect one might
want. And there is a particular widget set that has certain
affordances, some of which seem better than others. I'm looking more
for some "how to" and "best practices" information than I am general
design pattern type stuff. But I'll take what I can get.

Thanks in advance,
--Alan

Standards for power indication, LEDs?

Anyone know of a standard for power indications on equipment?

Specifically, I'm looking for any international standards that discuss
LED color, state, etc. for when a device is:

1) Connected to mains and ON

2) Connected to mains and OFF

3) Connected to mains and POWER SAVING

If there are standard iconography for these things, I'd like to know
about the references as well...

Drag-select convention

Anyone know what the convention or solution is for
allowing a user to select a bunch of objects in a
drawing application via box-select, where the start of
the drag is on an object that is not to be selected.

Background:

I have a map-based drawing application where many
thousands of zones are drawn by the user.

When manipulating these zones, using standard mouse
gestures, it is particularly difficult to deal with
performing a box-select operation, because there is no
background to click on...it is covered with zones.

The common result is that when the user does
box-select a set of zones, a

Social Network Open Source Platform - Recommendations?

I am looking for a Social Networking Platform (LAMP preferably) - Open
Source would be ideal, which will allow the user to see a specific
template once they login, dependant upon the domain they align
themselves to during sign-up.

The user chooses an email username, which is then attached to one of
200 domain names. This domain is branded and the user sees this once
they login through the main portal.

Any pointers?

Thomas

ps: as for assigning email addresses - I am open to taking advice
here too!! :)

prototype philosophy

Great article on the business week site today about design...

http://www.businessweek.com/innovate/content/jul2008/id20080728_623527.htm?chan=innovation_innovation+%2B+design_top+stories

Near the end of the article Claudia Kotchka talks about prototype workshops...

"Participants get scared using such rough prototypes to elicit
consumer feedback at the beginning, but they are won over when they
see the benefits of co-creation," says Kotchka.

There's still time to register for the PhizzPop Design Challenge and see your IxDA Peers.

Hey folks,

We've still got space at our design challenge events in NYC, Chicago, LA, Austin and Boston. NYC is filling up quickly and you'll be able to meet one of IxDA's very own founders David Malouf who will be judging! I weep for the contestants and wish them good luck! :)

Other events will have interesting judges as well, including Carlos Segura in Chicago, Luke W in Austin, and Lou Carbone in LA.

The events are free and the cocktails are on Microsoft.
