Flex and the Halo model

Anyone on the list used Macromedia Flex and the "Halo experience model"?

I am working on a project where we are either going to build our own visual
gui toolkit / interface spec in flash or adopt the Halo model with some
changes. Our development group can handle the server client relationship
of things usining jsp's or the flex model. What I am trying to acertain is
if we can reduce the amount of custom "gui" design while preserving and
developing good interaction for the project we are working on.

Re: [IxDA] Cooper U course - visual design

Hi Nick:   Glad to hear that you teach the visual design class.  Could you provide more detail as to what you teach in the Visual Design Course?  I've been wanting to take the course but of course need to justify the expense.  What background knowledge do you find most people have who enroll in the course.  What are the problems that the course can help a person solve?

I'm not sure I'd agree entirely with that. As a simple example, those
birthday cards that sing have a microprocessor and a sensor in them, to make
it play when it opens.

Online tools (Possibly free ware) that we can use to create a knowledge base of glossary

Hi All

Merry Christmas ! I am currently working on a project that involves compiling glossary and acronyms used extensively across our company. I am looking for inputs from similar projects that you may be doing or have done in the past and that enables us to use a search engine that can help anyone locate a particular acronym or glossary term.

The challenge is to collaborate with various teams that can be part of the database and contribute to as a team.

Any information will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
