True or False: In a perfect world we'd all create html clickable wireframes after the static ones have been don

This seems to be a never-ending discussion, regarding methods of
design and development. I contract to have certain system/apps that
I've designed prototyped, but certainly not all nor even the majority.

I work on wireframes, graphical layouts and keyframes, intensive
flows, and comprehensive implementation documentation, and have done
so for numerous OS GUIs (starting back in the 80s), lots of medical
equipment and devices, complex military systems, and so many mobile
device, phone, smartphone, and media players that I can't even count

Checkout and focus

Hi everyone,

I'm working on a project where the client has decided to add a "prepay"
option online to their website. The customer will get a mailer telling them
they are eligible, at which point they can log in to their account on the
website, and choose prepay. From there it's a pretty typical checkout
process - view the service, choose a billing type, enter billing and address
info and confirm - get a receipt.

Unfortunately there are two parties in on the design of this piece. I'm in
corporate IT, but the client also has their own agency. (It's complicated,
trust me).

Rhetorical approaches to design definitions

FYI, for those interested in some insights from a rhetorical
perspective on how to approach the problem of "defining design", as
quoted by Dick Buchanan, former head of the CMU School of Design and
current chief of their doctoral program. I've posted the main passage
on my blog here:


The key point is distinguishing between formal and descriptive
definitions, and using Aristotle's four causes as a general guide.
Hope the ixda community finds this useful...

Best regards,

"Fast Flip is a new reading experience that combines the best
elements of print and online articles. Like a print magazine, Fast
Flip lets you browse sequentially through bundles of recent news,

Wordsmithing : Can't we all just get along?

The Nipple: Innate or Intuitive?

Hmmm... Could we agree that the two terms are very close in meaning?

The Latin root of "innate" indicates that "you're born with it" and that it
is not "derived from experience"*

The Latin root of "intuition" indicates that "you look at it and know it";

CFP: CHI 2006 Work-in-Progress

(Apologies for cross-posting)

This year marks the introduction of the Work-in-Progress venue.
Work-in-Progress submissions provide an opportunity for both
practitioners and researchers to present a concise report of new
findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work relevant
to the HCI community.

Like interactive posters of the past, Work-in-Progress focuses more on
visual presentation and discussion between the author and attendees
around the poster.
