Office 2007 in 2006, two years later

Back toward the end of 2006, there was some fairly favorable discussion about the changes in Office 2007's GUI's (ref. http://www.ixda.org/discuss.php?post=12762). It's two years later now, and at least one segment of users that I know has a lot of mixed feelings about those changes. Specifically, technical communicators.

In the Event of My Death

Something I've been thinking about for a while is what will happen to
all my digital assets - all my online accounts, etc. - when I die.
More particularly, if I die suddenly in an accident, etc.

I own all the domains for my family's name and the hosting accounts
they (and several clients) all use and, like many of you, have many
online accounts for everything from banking through to Twitter. This
is a growing problem - I imagine the laws regarding power of attorney,
etc.

Omnigraffle question- Masters

How do folks handle Masters (elements that repeat) in Omnigraffle? I'm using
v5.02. Yes there are shared layers, but its not very useful because the xy
coordinates of shared layer are defined in the layer property as well. As a
result of that I can't have Master elements that appear in different
positions on the screen. I now create a new shared layer for each position
of the master- this works ok for smaller projects, but is very frustrating
for larger ones.
Wondering if anyone has come up with a better workaround?

Designing Social Interactions

I thought I'd start a new thread on designing social interactions
based on Adrian's reply about understanding social connections,
interactions and media, because we were getting quite off the topic of
visual/interaction design skills. But it's an interesting area.

There's an awful lot still to be learned and understood though, I
suspect. One of the things that complicates it all is that social
interactions affect future social interactions and so does the
software.
