Simplicity is Not Understood

note: this is a draft sour/sober personal opinion. it's not directed to
anyone in particular, really. don't take it too seriously if you don't want.
It doesn't have to do with IxD (wtf is IxD? really? is it
ProductDesign+HCI+Psychology+ScienceOfMind? who cares, IxD is a brand to
have more cash)... w/e

I "hate" to do this, talk in first person about this issues. but enough is

Communicating Design/ Deliverables

How do those of you who don't actually write code that is eventually used in
the build (both front-end and back-end) communicate your designs and
interaction models?

Here are two possible options-

1. Static mocks (accompanied with documentation for details)
2. Interactive mocks- HTML/JS, Flash, Prototyping tools like Axure (with
little or no documentation- most interactivity defined by prototype)

We currently use static mocks as a part of the design document, behavior
described in tables adjacent to the mocks.

ease of use & interfaces for "power" user

Thanks... concepts are weird, they're not "standarized on minds". Words
aren't that useful (maybe words are overrated). And they are circular
according to Minsky<http://web.media.mit.edu/%7Eminsky/papers/ComputersCantThink.txt>.
I don't know, simple is more in the zen-simple way...
