Interaction design == web design

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to introduce myself as this is my first posting to the list (I
have been subscribed for a few weeks now). We have been evolving our own
form of scenario- and persona-orientated design for the last year which has
been a big step-change in the way we build our software products. It's been
a fascinating process as we are strong practioners of eXtreme Programming
and our developers are very intelligent (and opinionated) C++ coders. It was
very much a case of "in-mates vs. wardens" prior and even during the
adoption of this process.

Access points for context sensitive help

With our next release of our web based software we are planning to incorporate
context sensitive help as part of the application. Currently the help is
accessed from a drop-down Help menu that has a link to the ‘Contents and
Index.’ This of course, opens the help with the TOC and the default welcome
page. As per the current implementation, the context sensitive help can be
accessed by using the F1 key which opens the help related to the page the user
is accessing in a window without the index and TOC.

For what it's worth, I agree with Elizabeth here.

When all said and done we are looking for a quality candidate.

Specifications written for a company's product belong to the company
and are confidential. Consider that before you post a spec
illustrating your talents.

It's a sad but true limiting factor to what most of us can show.

And here I was thinking how nice it was that they made these widgets large
enough that they were really easy to see.

The "standard" platform versions usually have such a small visual
presentation that it's hard to see which one is selected --- surely not a
good thing in a survey tool which consists primarily of various (forms)

Request for URLs

I'm just a bit confused reading some of the current posts. Don't be shy with

Thanks David for posting your "portfolio". I think your site samples show
the complexity of your work.

Gary, asked if "just doing it", i.e. making your own projects, something
that me as a hiring manager would want to see. My answer to him is YES!

It shows me a bunch of things (btw Gary I'm in your boat too w/ dated or
bubble bursted stuff). The main thing it shows me is determination and moxy.
I love those two qualities in a prospect. But if done correctly it also
shows me a designer.

I do have to say though that I think we are getting caught in our own
confusion.
