email address as username

Hi
I'm reviewing a web based blogging service. Currently on sign up, the
user has to enter a username, a display name and an email address. I
suggest that that username be replaced by the user's email address.
(from any email, say yahoo, gmail, hotmail, rediffmail, etc)
How would this impact the security of the product?

websites for people who use excel

I am working on an Intranet/product catalog application and many users begin
with an Excel spreadsheet and need to get this data into the online
interface. Has anyone worked on or know of websites which allow copying and
pasting of Excel data, hopefully "both ways" (eg, paste data into the web
interface, or paste data from the web interface into Excel)? My client
actually does have a functioning tool that does this, and almost no one uses
it, I suspect because the users are intimidated by the completely blank
screen that they start with.

Here's what I've learned from many years of usability testing and some
eye-tracking studies of forms.

What users really do is look for 'next box for me to type in'.

I have to take exception to the first part of this statement. I've been
working in interface design for some 14 years now, and interaction was
always a component of it.

Call for Your Participation – Session: “Practicing what we Preach”

As researchers and practitioners we help companies and organizations to design easy-to-use, usable, useful, and pleasurable websites. Sometimes, we seem to be "the shoemaker's children." We sometimes lack the time to put as much effort in our own websites as we advise others to do.

Good examples of IVR, (Interactive voice response), Interaction Design Standards

I'm working on an IVR project and was wondering what were the best
Interaction Standards/ Guidelines which IxD'ers have used, to create
successful IVR solutions.

The IVR project I'm working on comprises many functions for multiple roles,
and is supposed follow standards and be very simple, forgiving and easy to
use, all with touch pad technology.

Others IVR project experience would be interesting to hear, no pun intended
;)

Thanks,

Rich

Creating Design Documents for an iPhone App

Another iPhone app question for you folks. Interally we got the go ahead to run with our app. To get this far I had used vector and photoshop assets found on the web to create concept screens, which worked quite well. Basically I made comps in Illustrator and imported them into InDesign with very little annotation at this point (again just concepts.)
