Best practices for designing Terms and Conditions/Customer Agreement Interactions

I'm looking for any research or information on best practices for designing interactions where users have to accept some legal terms and conditions.  For instance - what are the advantages/disadvantages of presenting terms to the side of the main form vs. below or in a pop-up?  Or - if the terms are going to be in a scrolling window, are there any guidelines about how big that window should be?  How many lines should show at once relative to length of the whole agreement?

Snivelling about capitalism... was Primary interface

I can't take it anymore. I've tried to be politically correct, but I'm
incapable. I'm relableling this thread to what people really want to talk
about, "Snivelling about capitalism..." and automation.

Why is everyone so offended that companies do everything they do to make
money?

Businesses, with rare exceptions like Ben & Jerry's (who already have enough
money), ONLY want to maximize profits.

iPhone 2.0 Game Over? I think not!

Our good friend on the list, Kontra, recently wrote an article on his blog
called "Who can beat iPhone 2.0,"
http://counternotions.com/2008/03/10/iphone2-competitors/
and he does a fairly good job of pointing out all the things working in
Apple's favor, including:
1. Design
2. Stores
3. Pricing
4. Webkit
5 Depth
6. SDK
7. Enterprise
8.

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

iRise vs. Axure - Community response - Patent-free thread

First, my apologies to Andrei and anyone else who may be affected by having
links to patents in their email. I had NO idea about the impact.
In response to Josh Seiden who, speaking for the IxDA board, encouraged us
to come up with a plan of action, I'd like to start this new thread. To
anyone taking part in the discussion, please refrain from a discussion of
any patents, posting snippets thereof, or links to patent sites. Thanks!

The purpose of this thread is to discuss not the patent itself or whether
Axure infringed or not, but to discuss our response to this lawsuit as a
community.

It sucks to be a Jr. Interaction Designer/Jr. Usability Specialist/ Jr. User Experience Designer

For those graduating in 2008 (When the crisis started), 2009 (when the crisis was at the peek) and 2010 (when almost every 4th is unemployed in Malmö and Copenhagen Area), it really sucked/sucks to be a user centered designer. NO FREAKING JOBS! I was lucky enough to get hired as a technical writer with emphasis on usability....this was my first career job and I learned alot. Its just sad that it lasted for 13 months only.... My employer had to let 35 employees go. I was one of them.

Strategic Interaction Design

I'm starting a revision of my book Designing for Interaction.

<http://www.designingforinteraction.com>

In the second edition, I'd like to include a chapter on Strategy, that
is: how to decide WHAT should be designed and WHY.

So when I ask, what should interaction designers know about strategy?
You respond...

Technical skills of an Interaction Designer

Hi all,
as Interaction Designer I think it's a foundamental matter to have a deep knowledge of  "how it works behind the scenes" what we design for people to use.

The question is: which language (HTML, Java, Javascript, DHTML...) do you think an Interaction Designer should be fluent in and at which level?

Thanks,

Silvia
