Differnce between user interface and interactiodesign?

>>> Wipe out the entire design colony and start afresh and just name
>>> anyone who does work in any of these areas as a Designer.
>> Amen brother.

> That makes two of us.

That unfortunately still doesn't solve the problem that often people -
including arguably at least two postings to this very thread - refer to
people who *develop* interfaces as designers.

User Product Reviews: Showing only positive ones - good or bad?

We sell software where I work. We're looking to integrate user reviews that we get through a third party service (Zueberance, I think) into our product pages.

The business stakeholder wants us to only show positive/glowing reviews.

I have an ehtical problem with that as I feel it's misleading. I also think it looks odd when scanning a list of only 4 and 5 star reviews... As a user, I think, "Sooo... where are some of the more 'negative' reviews?"

'interaction design'?

im a student in the crossroads of turning into a professional ;)
i have few unanswered questions to discuss...

Part one:
Till some time back.. I was pretty clear of the word 'interaction design'.
till I saw some works loosely replacing this word with things done by HCI
professionals and UI designers.

Now...I am little confused abt this word 'interaction design'..What does
this word 'interaction design' mean to people in the profession?

Part two:
Interaction design deals with interaction, function, usage, aesthetics,
and culture.
