Call to Action: Redesigning America's Future

I am forwarding this from Elizabeth Tunstall whohas done some great
work on trying to create a national design policy here in the US. I
know that other countries have already created design policy groups,
but in the US we haven't, so her leadership in this area is a pretty
big deal.

Anyway, I thought I would forward this on to people's attention.

Better (was Strategic Interaction Design)

Hi Christina,

Sounds like a great book, do you know the author? "Whose Body is it Anyway"
returns a couple of results on Amazon. I'm guessing it is the one by Cecil
Fabre?

Better (was Strategic Interaction Design)

I'm changing threads in hopes for making some people's lives better.

Regarding Complications, I first made the connection between this excellent
collection of essays on practicing medicine and design when John Zapolski
placed "Whose Body is it Anyway" on the desks of his fellow design managers
are yahoo and suggested we read it replacing the word body with design.
Reading it, it was clear that the question of "design ownership" could be
seen through the question of treatment choices for a patient.

Usability of accordions

No, I don't mean harmoshkas, but boxes with sliding parts, e.g.:
http://www.stickmanlabs.com/accordion/

We are going to use such box on the main page (in the bottom of column - not
very important content there, but still) and just wondering about
interactions. Current proposition is:

1. Accordion auto-switches to the next part after every 5 seconds when mouse
pointer is outside the box.

2. OnMouseOver any part-title bar opens this part (with latency 200ms).

3.

Experimental Commenting System on my Blog

I recently went about messing around with jQuery to produce a simple
proof of concept of what can be done to enhance discussions on blogs.
This could be applicable in other discussion forums as well. I
borrowed a few ideas from others. Credit is given where due. You can
check it out here:

http://donttrustthisguy.com/2009/01/04/encouraged-commentary/

I'm not sure that it is exactly the most intuitive but I think a good
amount of users can figure it out with a little curiosity.
