fluidIA: an open design open source UI prototyping tool

This project looks very cool. I've been looking for a good,
preferably open-source prototyping app for some time now. A guy I'm
working on a CS research project with uses OmniGraffle, and I'm
always impressed by its flexibility and ease of use. I'll definitely
stay tuned to fluidIA and look for ways to help out.

fluidIA: an open design + open source UI prototyping tool


I am officially launching an open design / open source project with the
intention of creating an agile user interface prototyping tool - fluidIA.

I just setup a web site http://www.fluidia.org where I plan to post design
ideas and make the working code available. I also invite other interaction
designers and developers to join in and contribute by means of comments or
design submissions.

Best spot for personalized messaging?

Hello all--Is anyone aware of research that looks at the physical
placement of personalized marketing messaging? I'm looking at a mockup
(for a design in which I was not involved) that has a large section of
the top center of our e-commerce homepage devoted to personalized
messages to the registered user.

(Plug) Beyond Findability IASummit Pre-Conference Workshop

Hey IxD friends.

I know many of you are still drifting down from the mountaintop experience
in Vancouver, which truly sounded inspiring from the reports on Twitter and
what-not for those of us not able to attend. (I *must* make it to Savannah
next year!)

But we're already looking ahead to March.

Open source user experience

I've been thinking about the open source movement.

I know very little of the UX community's involvement, so firstly I'm posting
to ask what has been happening so far. Mozilla, Open Office and some others
must have had serious UX involvement. Secondly, if it doesn't already
exist, I wonder if there's the potential for us to structure some kind of
virtual agency that would allow us to engage effectively.

Few thoughts

- In my opinion, several OS projects are incredible achievements that are
hampered by small usability problems or even just language issues.
