Online brochure vs. PDF download

Does anyone have any recommendations/ preferences with regard to online
We have the option of providing a downloadable pdf that users can view/print
out for reading later, and/or going with a zmags.com solution that takes the
print brochure(s) and displays it rather sleekly in it's own window (Ikea
applies this solution). There is a link to download the brochure from the
zmag approach, but I don't think it's immediately evident to the user. Are
there any stats/suggestions?

"Designing Everyday Computational Things", Johan Redström

Hans didn't post the URL for this diss. It's at
http://www.viktoria.se/~johan/thesis/ and is exceptionally good. If
anyone's read Malcolm McCullough's recent "Digital Ground", Redström's
project covers pretty much the same topic, but is written as a series
of design case studies, which I find more interesting reading.

> For example, I have been interested in the work of Redstrom :
> Jonas Redstrom, Designing Everyday Computational Things
> Ph. D. Thesis. Gothenburg Studies in Informatics, No.

Speaking of Data Visualization

For those so inclined, I recently (last week) got a copy of "Data Flow:
Visualizing Information in Graphic Design" which is all about data
visualization in graphic design - but since many here at one point or
another are asked to do something related to visualizing complex data sets -
you may find some of examples are innovative and effective ways of
communicating and could be useful in your work.

Any usability studies on free hand gestures?

Thanks- I know of Lee's work- and have been using it since 3 days ago- and
it is very cool- BUT - the issue I am exploring is NOT how to technically
IMPLEMENT gesture analysis and tracking (there is a lot of published work on
that), but rather a search for *design guidelines for best gestures* to
implement- i.e. rules to help a designer select gestures.

behaviour and make products that comply with them but also to change
these behaviours. Three practices described — Persuasion Design,
