AJAX for WAP initiative?

Is anybody aware of any initiative around AJAX for WAP
or WAP 3.0 intiative?

With today's announcement of AJAX for Opera Platform,
it seems logical to me that AJAX for WAP is the next
logical step. Are there any initiatives around this?

Productive-interface engineering


I came across this site from http://interaction-design.org/ and it meantions
in passing this "innovative" idea called "Pi Engineering" or
Productive-Interface Engineering.

Unlike most designer sites that give away some aspect of what the heck their
process means, this site doesn't say a word about it except to say that we
should concentrate less on testing and more on designing, and there is some
reference to building out the architect

Vancouver Frenchies Meet-up!

Hi there from BC!

With all this talk about informals and such I'm thinking the vancouver
interaction designers should finally get together.

What better a way to celebrate the marvels of Interaction Design than
with heaps of gooey french fries and smoked meat?

Pagination vs Sortation

I'm working out the relationship between pagination and sortation and wanted to get some
feedback. Pagination has traditionally been a web paradigm, while soration has been more of
a desktop convention. As the distinction between the functionality of web apps and desktop
apps breaks down, it's possible to see both in one place. That creates some friction.

Say you're on the 2nd page of a paginated set of tabular results. Say, Books by Author. You
see Daniel Boorstin's books and decide to sort that page by publication date to see his works
in order.
