Forms design - I'm researching and need help

Where are we on forms design today?

How far have we come on designing effective, intuitive, intelligent web forms? I'm researching forms design, both best practice and the more innovative ones. But I'm having a hard time finding really good examples.

HiOscar the insurance company is one example with some innovative qualities and certainly worth a study. But I'm searching for more advanced forms with higher complexity.

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?

Wireframe Templates in Visio

Hello,

I have been actively following this group for months. Very good
resource.

I am interested in examples of using Visio as a tool beyond workflow
diagraming.

Does anyone have examples of using Visio as a tool for creating
wireframes? I currently use Illustrator for my wireframes - the big
downside to this application is the difficulty in multiple page
formatting for wireframes.

Thanks in advance for your advice and examples!

Changing role of user research in the UX design process?

During the Interactions 13 conference in Toronto, Paul Adams of Facebook advocated a radically different development cycle than the "ideal" user-centered one (qualitative user research first, then modelling and concept development, followed by prototyping, testing, and iteration).

Ajax product configurator examples

I'm helping a friend who has a small business (total employees: 1, total
budget: $0 or maybe less) brainstorm ideas for a custom product configurator
for his website. Similar sites might allow you to see the clothes on a model
and change shirt colors, add various designs to a t-shirt, or customize your
new Mercedes colors, wheels, etc. He's curious to find out if this sort of
product configuration can be done well using Ajax/Web 2.0 technologies.

Can an interaction designer creat (great) interaction without (great) visual design skills?

Hi all,

in my daily work as an interaction designer I mostly create wireframes and
support the visual designers in their creation of the visual design for
these wireframes.

I notice though, that there is a strong dependency on how/if the interaction
will work and the (eventual) visual design.

My question: can an interaction designer create great working interaction
without having visual design skills?

Kind regards,
Rein Groot

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.

Current Design Topics

I'm preparing my design seminar for the Fall semester, which is a
masters-level course. The last time I taught this specific course was
2005. I assigned readings on the following subjects:

Design Certification
Offshore Outsourcing
Design & Business
Formal Education vs. Self-taught
Design Ethics
Design Leadership
Making a Business Case for Design
Experience Design

Many of these are still relevant four years later, but I want to keep
the discussions contemporary. If you were picking current topics for
students to read, write about, and discuss, what would they be?
