Another FAQ item that has caused a lot of confusion especially among
the newbies is so many Design Processes - User Centered Design Process,
Usage Centered Design Process, Activity Centered Design, Goal Driven
Design etc etc etc. Even though User and what he wants to accomplish
is a central part of each of these processes, each of them focuses on
a different attribute - activity, task, goal, usage, feature etc etc. This has
led to a lot of confusion and most people keep debating which to use
in which scenario. Its high time it has an FAQ and the gurus come
together to give the interaction designers a unified design process
:-)

You might find some of the stuff under http://del.icio.us/tag/ixd
+definition of use.

I personally hate the whole line drawing I do this, you do that,
nonsense myself. I'm interested in the skills and practices - not
what folk name a particular subset.
