Making Flash less browser-hostile (WAS: why is flash so awesome?)

I got lucky this week and was able to write up my research on making
Flash more browser-friendly. Whether or not the methods I found will
be adopted by our Flash devs is still TBD (but I still have my +2
Email Of Overwhelming Persuasion on hand if there's trouble).

Here are the best references I found.

Re: UCD Processes!

Hi Prady,

The UPA site has some resources. There's a diagram indicating iteration (at a very high level of abstraction), plus links to buying their "chutes & ladders" poster ;>)


Jennifer Preece, Yvonne Rogers, and Helen Sharp have published a book entitled "Interaction Design." I believe there are some diagrams therein that might address your desire.

RE: Where Interaction Sits.

Not sure what is wrong w/ Interaction Design.
We design the behaviors of systems as they interact with humans.

In the UCD world (those disciplines created around UCD, not ones that impact
it like Visual Design who's origins go to unrelated areas).

Icon suggestions for account related activities


A friend was asking for icon suggestions for the following:

account info, edit profile, add funds, change password and (view)
account history

I did get back saying I needed to know the context, but thinking if
anyone has any good references to sites to give inspiration for icon
design, I'll pass this on.

Thanks for any suggestions and your help.

Enjoy the day!

We're designing a form that offers the user two sets of fields. The user
can fill out one or the other.

The ultimate in flexibility would be to keep all the fields enabled until
the user completes one set and submits the form.

Re: iterative thinking ...

I have been known in previous years of my life to think that there is
