Distracting Users During Load Load Times

I've got the following problem:
we're trying to incorporate bulk actions to a list and the server needs time to process mulitple requests, which result in a long loading time (around 10s-20s).

Been looking for a list on what techniques we can do to distract users from feeling the loading time being slow. Were currently implementing an loading bar ajax loading on loop would you guys know any other way thats more satisfying than this?

Thanks!

Interaction Design, Generalism, and the Missing Pieces

This general area of discussion has interested me for nearly a quarter
of a century, if not more. I graduated with a degree in design
(concentrating in product design) in 1983, and shortly thereafter my
experience with the Macintosh set my career's goal - to be a pioneer in
human interaction in products, software, and systems, and to approach
this as designers in my own tradition had always done.

what won't be I*offshore* outsourced

<<The US federal government outsources literally everything, in one form
or another, to contractors.>>

I would change "literally" to "virtually", but otherwise I agree.

In my previous post, I was referring to offshore outsourcing.

Elizabeth, just clarifying before someone corrects her... :-)

Mathematical theory of beautiful design - Fun weekend post

There is an interesting article in Sunday edition of The Boston Globe
newspaper about a mathematical theory of beauty in design - the claim is
that you can determine what people will find beautiful in design artifacts
(painting, buildings, furniture, ....) through a mathematical relationship
of complexity and transformations.

Personas

That sort of artificial persona/personality design is a frequent component
of over-the-telephone speech recognition systems that occurs before the UI
design is created. It even gets done well sometimes. :)

And actually, even though vocal interaction leads to much more of the
perception, I think we've discussed before that personality traits are often
ascribed by users to visual interaction as well.
