I'm a big fan of the "Silk" set found at famfamfam.com (http://
www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/silk/). They're licensed under Creative

The ease index

I'm finding in our usability tests here that users seem to have an
increasing amount of difficulty with editing tasks the further away the
editing is from the starting point.

non-GPL'd emoticon set

Hi all -

Does anyone know where I can find a non-GPL'd emoticon set? I'm
looking for something to use in a product. Happy to pay for use, but
paying to create from scratch looks to be prohibitively expensive.

Unfortunately searching for emoticons on Google pulls up a bunch of
junk emoticon sites, at least with any phrase I've thought of.

Thanks for the help.

Michael

F2F in Boston -- interested?

Who would be interested in a casual get-together or two in the Boston area?
I'm thinking early August for the first one, and one later in September or
October, when more people are back from vacation (so don't worry about
missing the first one).

Please send me private replies, to reduce traffic for our 2000+ other
subscribers.

Small usability issue - forms

Hi all... I have a small issue I'm looking for a best practice on in
regards to form interaction.

Scenario:

User reaches character limit for any given form input field. Should the
cursor automatically jump to the next field in the sequence, or should
the move to the next field be a conscience, manual, user task?

I see both sides... and am personally annoyed by auto moving cursors,
but that is just me and not necessarily a best practice! :-)

Thoughts?

SAS to IRP

Hi,
Referring to the interview of Marc Benioff on the BW, salesforce.com created a new software enabled delivery platform, popularly refered to as SAS (software as a system). Now in the next innovation move he is talking about 'application marketplace', 'Internet Resource Planning' etc.
http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/content/05_38/b3951100.htm

I think it kind of indicates the becoming of web 2.0 or the next generation x-web.
