ADMIN: how to set digest?

Hiya, a lot of people have been sending in requests for information about
how to set digest mode, so I thought a bulk send might be helpful.

In the message body type one of the following w/o quotes and w/o added text
in parens:
"set digest plain" (plain text, muddies up attachments)
"set digest mime" (richer text, allows for attachments)

...to turn off digest

Cross media bar experience?

Hi - and thanks for the great discussion that's going on here!

I'm currently looking into different ways of navigating and interacting with small handheld devices. In a recent discussion my team begun to discuss the Sony Cross media bar concept (XMB) and its pros and cons. Does anyone here have any thoughts in the matter? Some of the issues that I (personally) are thinking about:

* How well does the solution scale when there is a lot of content? Lots of labelling of content required in order to be useful?

* Is it a good solution for all kinds of interactive spaces?

IxDA 2006 Board Retreat: Report to Our Membership

IxDA 2006 Board Retreat: Report to Our Membership

Dear Members of IxDA,

The IxDA Board and I have recently held our annual Board Retreat, and
I am very excited by the results! As you may have noticed, while
several of our local organizations (NYC, Portland, Sweden, and Pune,
to name a few) have been very active, IxDA global leadership has been
somewhat muted for the past 6-8 months.

Lightbox modal dialog boxes, your feeling about them?

My sense is that as long as it isn't overused, the lightbox dialog
works well for providing essential information and/or interaction
without taking a user out of their primary flow. There are some good
examples in Designing Web Interfaces by Bill Scott and Theresa Neil,
and I've seen additional examples in the wild recently. I think it's a
familiar enough pattern that users understand it right away and know
how to interact with it, though I haven't yet tested it myself.

I'm designing a process at the moment that uses a lightbox dialog at a
critical point in the sign-in/registration process.

Conan update & design doc

Hello IxDA,

In September, we announced the commencement of the implementation
phase of IxDA's major infrastructure project, ever-so-fondly named
