Use Case Modeling


I was wondering which kind of setup you use for writing use cases? Do you use a simple Word template or tools like Visual Use Case 2009?

Right now I am using Word for writing and Omnigraffle for doing the diagrams. But there hast to be a better and more efficient way..

Flights to Vancouver decreasing in $?

Hi all,

other people, too. Check it out, and see you there!

What do you think of conference give-aways?

Help the IxD12 committee make some good design decisions. interaction 12 | Dublin is well on its way to being organized and we want to make sure we meet all your expectations. if you can help us with the issue of physical give-aways I'd be greatly appreciative. There is even a question in here for prospective sponsors to let us know what they think.

Any Ixder's working on physical products...

Most of my career in interaction design since 1984 has involved both
the physical aspects of hardware/devices as well as the software
aspects of displays, audio, the information systems behind them, and
the usage architectures by which they're used and the experience is

Partly this is because I came from the product and industrial design
side of things, and also partly because much of my work has been in
unique or new device or system domains.

In my own career and approach, I've never separated the hard from the
soft in my view of what comprises the whole user experience.
