New Pledges ... People giving back in NYC

hey there folks,

I thought I'd mention that at the Dan Saffer talk in NYC last night at
the monthly NYC IxDA event, we mentioned the Pledge Drive and people
opened their pockets and we raised another $75 towards the pledge.

Terms for log in / out

Hi all -

I'm in the middle of bringing our thick and thin UI's into the 1990's (we'll
tackel the modern age later, hopefully), and one issue that's got me worked up
is our log in / out terminology.

Today, we use "Login" / "Logout" on our window titles, labels, buttons, etc. to
indicate these actions. I did a quick survey and found that Google, MSDN,
Amazon, Ebay, and Yahoo! all use "Sign In" / "Sign Out".

swipr officially released

Hi All,

As you may or may not know, I have been working on a toolset for Visio
that allows the integration of sitemaps/screenflows and wireframes into
one fully interactive HTML deliverable. After nearly a year of working
with it in-house in different projects and environments, my employer
(User Intelligence) and I have decided to make this tool available to
the IA community.
During the Euro IA Summit last month in Berlin, I have officially
released version 0.50. Swipr is released under the GNU Open Source
license, and is completely free.

Primary interface

I went to Home Depot and used their ACM (? automated cashier machine) as
1. I walked up to it and scanned my merchandise. (I noticed it was in the
proper initial state. I ignored the prompt to choose a language.)
2. I put in adequate cash (ignoring the button that prompted me to tell it
"Finish and Pay").
3. It (she, if you care, at least voicewise) gave me change and a receipt,
which I took along with my merchandise as I walked away.

I call that the primary interface.
