Kickstarter for a book about interaction design - only 2 weeks left

Hey all - I'm part of Chicago's IxDA chapter, and I'm in the
process of writing a book about interaction design. It's called
Cadence & Slang, and it should be out by the end of next year. I
posted earlier about this, but we've seen quite a lot of progress so
far, and so I figure it's worth an update here.

I've launched a Kickstarter project to fund its creation, at
http://nickd.org/x/cadence/ , which ends in only two weeks.

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

work on
a book on developing prototypes. "A Practitioner's Guide to Prototyping"

assumptions,
and gather real-time feedback from users. The book will discuss how
prototypes are more than just a design tool, demonstrating how they

your
development team.

design-research for consumer and b2b products.
