has anybody used participatory design combined with paper prototyping to gather insight as to the best interaction design solution?
I'm specifically thinking of having users organize, in a guided session, paper widgets and content modules of different sizes to reflect the access they would like to see on the interface to different content items according to their needs and uses. This would be like an extension of conventional card sorting (which we have already done), but to gauge users' needs in terms of access and interaction with the contents.

Any other links, pdf, authors, books would be appreciated.
The May event for the LA UX MeetUp is confirmed. Nate Bolt, El Presidente of Bolt|Peters will be joining us to talk about his new book Remote Research. Nate has overseen hundreds of remote user research studies for Sony, Oracle, HP, Greenpeace, Electronic Arts, and others. Beginning in 2003, he led the creation of the first moderated remote user research software, Ethnio, which is being used around the world to recruit hundreds of thousands of live participants for research.
