Continuous Scroll

As supported in the Sympony Open-Source PHP Web Framework, "Ajax Pagination"
allows the client browser to load the content gradually as the user scrolls
down to the bottom of the web page. Once the vertical scrollbar reaches the
bottom it triggers a new page to load. Unlike its common use in separate
frames(i.e. the inbox of Hotmail Live), ajax pagination(weird name) attaches
a new full page to the end of the current one.

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?

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?

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.

The Five Types of Prototypes

So, this whole discussion about making clickable wireframes got me
thinking about something. As I'm working through my book,
interviewing a number of people from different backgrounds, I've come
across 5 different types, or purposes perhaps, for prototype:

1. As a common communication platform–using them to get everyone on
the same page, avoiding misinterpretation of ideas, using them as a
method to show and tell.
2.

I wish I was Apple

HOLY MOTHER OF CRAP!

Apple changes the rules again - they've literally reversed the scroll!!!

My internal jury is still out... 

While it's feeling so deeply wrong to change such rules, it actually feels somewhat right (if you forget the paradigm)

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.
