Tog says....

Hi All,

In "First principles of Interaction Design" article on asktog.com, Tog says
"
------------------
" Wrong:

Insert page break
Add Footnote
Update Table of Contents
Right:

Insert:

Page break
Footnote
Table of contents
Here, the first example, with its leading words, is actually more
informative and more accurate: one does not "insert" a footnote if it is to
be placed after all the other footnotes. And one does not insert a table of
contents if there is already a table of contents there. Instead, one updates
it.

Favorite projects // companies

Often we talk about the nuts and bolts of what we do in a very generalized sense but I'd like to get into some specifics. What are some of your favorite projects that you've worked on recently? What about historically? Why were they so engaging for you? Additionally, what are some of the favorite companies you've worked for and why? Is it client roster that you find appealing? Scale and scope of work?

RE: Improved Searching - Trouble for Google?

Had not seen this before - thanks for sharing!

It takes a few seconds to orient yourself (and I agree the graphics on the
start page are a bit much)....but....the search results screen is cool
(IMHO). I love the choice of clicking on the search results link or
choosing the "framed" feature (when you click elsewhere within the result).
Lots of cool additional features as well, such as scrolling from one result
page to the next, the "open original" link etc.

Improved Searching

Useful - probably not the first time you've seen this.

Must be some serious processing going on in the background. Not too
comfortable with the visual aspect though.

Keely's(sp?) Model (was Experience design vsinterac tion design)

I once did a diagram that described this like a mountain:

Take a simple triangle.

The up-slope is Design - the goal is to get as high as possible, as
pure, think as big, as free as possible.
