Any interest in a Collaboration & Distributed Design Team topic for Interaction10?

My associate and I are planning to submit a proposal on ‘Collaboration
& Distributed Design Teams’ for the Interaction10 conference in
Savannah. We think we have enough material for a Presentation-style
of session, but we wonder if there is sufficient interest in a Group
Discussion-style session instead.

Do you work in a geographically dispersed design organization? Is
part of your team composed of external contractors? Are you
separated by more than just time zones and telephones? How do
language, culture, and technology affect our ability to collaborate?

Video Collaboration


I am on a project that involves cross-location collaboration, and
I'm looking for a video tool to allow me to sketch on *paper* in
real time, and broadcast what I'm doing to my own computer screen.

I have a webcam which I have jimmy-rigged to shoot downward to my
desk. We use screen-sharing programs (WebEx, etc), so I have that

Interactive design business prospects?

Hi all!

I am new to this conference, so I can write something, that you are
not interested. In that case simply say me, that it is not a proper
theme for this conference.

So, going for a theme of this discussion. I am from Ukraine and own
my graphics design company, called "JAR Studio"
(, but sorry - only in russian), we are
specialized on Flash interactive graphics and informational design.

And i want to say you, that here, in Ukraine, Interactive Design
can't be viewed as separate business.This is connected with current
economic and politic situation.

Collaborative Review Routing

Right now, one of my teams is trying to find the most efficient method
of routing a document or site for review. The big items on the agenda
are the Design, Content and UX aspects. Right now, those are three
different documents (comps, manuscript and IA Doc), but are trying to
find a way to either:

a) combine them into a single document -- and/or --
b) Find a way of adding version control into the docs to track

Has anyone found collaborative tools that will allow version control,
commenting AND combining the different aspects of the project

multi-user design collaboration

Multi-user design application collaboration:  what works?  Love to hear what applications or systems are your favorites.  Especially interested in those that provide multi-user collaboration beyond file check-in and check-out – such as the ability to work on the same file at the same time or the ability to check out design elements.

Collaborative HTML Prototyping

I looking for a way of collaborating with a team on producing HTML prototypes.

I'm after something fairly lightweight.

I'd like there to be only a single instance of the prototype (i.e. no
emailing it to eachother).

Anyone got any advice?

Interaction Design Specification Sites

There¹s been a fair amount of discussion here about documentation formats
and software used to produce wireframes, prototypes, and so on. But how do
people manage an entire specification? I have been using a hand-coded
intranet site, controlled via subversion; but my team is growing and I¹m
considering other ways to manage the information. Web access and formats
(not, for instance, Word documents) and some sort of version control are my
main requirements, along with relative ease of editing. What do people use?
Blogs, wikis?

collaborative group structures

There is a lot of conversation about working collaboratively on this
board. Mostly regarding results and software to facilitate. I have
identified four basic structures for group work that I am intimately
familiar with. I am curious what people are participating in, and if
there are other derivations?

A) Group think
Multiple people in a group. Disciplines might vary. The group marches
forward in lock step... while there may be diverse opinions, the
group makes democratic decisions.

Shared virtual whiteboard: Suggestions?

I am looking for a setup to share a virtual whiteboard in
geographically distributed design sessions.

- runs on Mac and Win, or (even better) platform-independent
- supports free-hand drawing
- imports bitmap files or screen shots to draw on
- more than one user can draw simultaneously

- runs without installing very complicated dedicated server software
- freeware, shareware or affordable payware

My intention is to use it together with audio/video conf such as
Skype for a small project team (2-4 people) to run focused creative
sessions across geographic lo
