visual cues for thumbnails

Dear ID/As,

in his wonderful book "Tog on Software Design" Tog wrote:

"Thumbnails will replace generic-looking document icons, providing users with visual cues as to the nature of the material inside a container. Their appearance will go beyond today's thumbnails to reflect the amount of material they contain." [p. 196]

This is exactly what I like to do for OpenOffice.org/StarOffice thumbnails representing documents.

Favicon and Apple Bookmark Icon

My company is an interactive agency. For a few years now as a standard
procedure we've created favicons (favicon.ico) for websites we build.
Recently, we have started creating an Apple Bookmark Icon
(customIcon.png) as well.

As an owner of an iPhone I dig the bookmark icon. But in day to day
browsing on a computer I actually use the favicon. In fact all my
browser bookmarks are simply the favicon. It allows me to have more
bookmarks without displaying any text.

Ever had a moment when you’re presenting your detailed design work and
you get an unenthusiastic "Is that it?" from your audience?

This can sometimes happen when a project has been in design
development without conceptual feedback or consensus-building. We
often move forward rapidly with our detailed design work due to time

Bill Moggridge says IxD is over. ; -) (not really, but its nice and provocative)

Tim McCoy takes on the post here:

Jamin Hedeman had a first post on the quote here:

Here is how Jamin relates this:

interaction design as a discipline.

Re: [IxDA] Re: [IxDA] HTML 5 Design and Development Rock Stars Wanted!

Everyone aspires above their station (or should!). Most everyone exaggerates a big to seem worthy of that. Employers know this.

If most people exaggerate some, they can't tell that you don't. So if the roadies describe themselves as rock stars, what are they supposed to think a self-described roadie actually is?
