What is the one *best* interaction design blog?

I'm updating my feed list. Typically, I find things through
serendipity or links-followed. I figured I'd ask the crowd for wisdom.

What is the one *best* interaction design blog that you absolutely must be read?

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,

Prototyping Tools 2012 - Axure RP 6.0 or iRise Studio

Hi all,

My first post on IXDA.

I realise that this point is raised periodically but wanted to get a quick verdict on the most popular prototyping and wireframe creation tools. 

Criteria is that we are designing enterprise, transactional applications and platforms - with complex interactions and logic and our designers are using mixture of Mac and Pc as their workstations - so ideally I want something multi platform compatible. 

Tools under the microscope are;-

Creating a UI Spec Document Template

Right now our small team is communicating UI changes and enhancements
with developers using PowerPoint mock ups with notes. I am concerned
this will eventually backfire and would like to bring a little more
formality to the process. Is anyone willing to share their UI spec
document and/or recommendations for putting together a spec. I have
used the PayPal format before but it has been a while and I don't
remember everything that was in it.

Since our team is very small I don't want to bring about a lot of
paperwork just something to make sure we have all of our bases
covered.

Thanks,
Jamie

Photoshop stops pasting from Clipboard

Hi all,

Anybody solved the mysterious Cut n' Paste abandonment issue with Photoshop CS4 and CS5?.

I heard it's actually a Windows problem...something about Photoshop keeps 'listening' for the clipboard, but Windows ignores the request after a while, something to the effect.

Anyway.
Here is the scenario:

Research Frameworks - Definition, Examples & Creation?

Hi all,
This idea of the "research framework" has really gotten stuck in my mind
since we began altering our process here at Evantage. But here's the
problem... I don't have a specific definition of what exactly this means. So
I've made one up:

Research Framework: A collection of things to ask & things to observe in
particular contexts, along with contextually appropriate techniques for
doing so.

Other companies like Frog or Ideo

I'm curious if people knew of other companies that were like Frog or Ideo.
Product Design consultancies that merge traditional industrial design and
emerging digital design into a next venue for interaction design?

I want to be a bit more proactive in my search for a perfect job and maybe
look for people to do some information interviews with. I'm particularly
interested if these companies are somewhere along a major NYC based transit
system.

Defining a UX vision

Does anyone have any samples of a good UX vision statement? Everyone
talks about how important it is to have a good UX vision, but I
can't find anything that defines exactly what a "good UX vision"
is. I've been trying to develop one from scratch and I'm not sure
how it should be structured or what it should contain. Should it
contain specifics like "we need a dedicated UX group in our company
that all our design teams can use"? I don't want it to be
product-centered, because we build a whole range of applications.
