pattern or feature inventory (as in content inventory)

I appreciate the responses so far.

Allow me to reframe this question: I am looking for a method to capture and
present interactive elements on a competitor's site.
I'm thinking of an interaction designer's version of the IA's content
inventory. I want to inventory interactive features, rather than content
and links. Any ideas?

For example, in a previous job I had TechSmith's Morae(R) which would allow
me to capture dynamic aspects of an interaction, or an entire experience. I
do not have Morae now.

On November 19 Steve Portigal presented “Yes, My Iguana Loves to Cha-Cha:

discussion in which the room was openly engaged.

What Makes a Design Seem 'Intuitive'?

Hi everyone,

A while back on this list, there was a fascinating discussion about what
makes a design seem intuitive to a user.

I finally had a chance to get my thoughts down on the subject and I've put
it into this article:

Basically, our research has shown that there are two conditions where users
will tell you an interface seems intuitive:

#1: Current Knowledge (the knowledge the user comes to the design with) and
Target Knowledge (the knowledge they need to complete their objective) are

³ Cellphone, yes! Wallet, yes! Keys, no! ²

Isn't it better when machines do the dirty work for us homo sapiens:

Smart fabrics make for enhanced living

To make a bag that prevents people forgetting things, Nanda and Cable have
equipped a module with a radio antenna and receiver. The unit is programmed
to listen for signals from radio frequency identification (RFID) tags on
objects like cellphones, keys and wallets.

A sensor module in the bag¹s handle detects when the bag has been picked up,
indicating that the owner might be leaving.
