content inventory for an RIA?

Hello all,

Most of us are familiar with doing content inventories for websites. Jeffery
Veen over at Adaptive Path has even shared his spreadsheet. (Here:

My question to you is how do you document feature/structure inventory of a
RIA/web app?

For example: You launch a beta version of a product. As people use it, they
make feature requests.

"The Brain" and "MindManager" and Post-it notes

Mind mapping tools

I wonder if anyone used the low tech approach: mind mapping,
brainstorming and categorizing with Post-it notes. How does it compare
to the software?

On positive side Post-it notes seem to be more collaborative, to have
lower participation threshold by virtue of being low tech (similar to
paper prototypes) and because people get a chance to physically move
around, play with their hands while pasting notes on white board. Is
this correct assumption about ease of collaboration?

The setbacks I see: 1. No remote participation, 2. Archiving results
for reference and 3.

Coming to Interaction '11? Thinking about going to graduate school?

If so, I'd highly recommend checking out the University of Colorado at Boulder while you're here.  If you let me know your background and what you're interested in studying, I can point you in the right direction of who to see/where to look on campus, but for starters there's some great work interaction-related work being done in both the CS (http://www.cs.colorado.edu/) and ATLAS (http://www.colorado.edu/atlas/) departments.

Of course, no discussion about workflow would be relevant without
understanding the content that is being created in that workflow.

IOW, are folks just creating drawings with the most basic of
annotations, or is there more complex descriptions and narrative flow
from page to page with text? Do the drawings need to be repurposed for
the web, as single images each or a collection only to be viewed as a
PDF document? Do images have to be reused individually, or as a

Embedding Interaction Technology

Hi Everyone,


what do you think about interaction design / technology embedded in everyday objects? Touchscreens in tables, pillows, walls.

I believe that for a technology to be adapted by larger masses you first need to go the way of integrating it into something that people already know and are confortable with - in a way that you don't disturb the usage of the (host) object itself.

1st reminder: CALL FOR PAPER: aaate 2009 conference

Hello there,

I already posted this last month, but there could probably be someone new in the Forum who could be interested, so I'm re-posting this call for paper.

I also take the chance to launch a proposal: It'd be cool to meet if some of you is working in Italy. Just come up in some way and we'll try to arrange something.
