ethics, training and HFI

(Apologies if you have seen this email elsewhere, I am interested in your views)
Hi All,
I have a question for you all on ethics. I have just received a mailshot from HFI, advertising a training course in London on User Centred Analysis and Conceptual Design. Please note that I do not compete with HFI on training and have no personal grudge of any kind.

Anti Read: Want to build the next “hot” technology?

Faith's take on Roger Costello's short blog entry is completely and
100% spot on. It's exactly what he's trying to get at, but
unfortunately doesn't take the time or amount of words to clarify.

Re: intent-driven search

Hi Ben,

Isn't what you're talking about a "recommender system"?

This category of applications holds great promise for asynchronous social collaboration about the sorts of things you're talking about.

I've had the opportunity to hear Joseph Konstan of the University of Minnesota & CHI talk about his adventures in this market segment, but I haven't yet read his book, "Word of Mouse."

There's a lot of programming, yes, and there also needs to be a substantial amount of data, yours and others'.

the little pointy hand

If you are on a mac and press command-Tab to switch apps, you will see your
cursor will change from the arrow to a pointing hand. We know this cursor is
good for pointing out links or buttons, particularly for the web. At first I
blamed the inconsistency on an oversight, which is common on web apps (Gmail
only changes the cursor for underlined text, Reader doesn't). But this
cursor is rarely used at the OS level; someone had to make the decision to
make the switch. Do you know why? I can't.
