I'm looking for any research you could share that relates to the use of ebooks and possible user preference on its delivery format (true to text vs. not).

Thanks in advance for any insight or documents you can point me to.

Scott McCloud Interview

When I started interface design there were two books you had to read to "get it." One was Brenda Laurel's "Computers as Theatre" and the other was Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics.

PopMatters has a nice interview with Mr. McCloud discussing digital distribution and web as a marketplace. Enjoy...

Launching "User Interface Trends" site -- http://uitrends.com

I'm in the process of launching a new site (http://uitrends.com) with the
purpose of:

1) collecting trends and interesting user interface designs for websites and
web applications
2) promoting discussion (comments, rating, etc.) of the trends/designs

The site is definitely in beta, but want to share now with the community
because what is most
important to me on the site is the opinion and input of others. The more
expert input, the better.

Hope you find it interesting and useful.

Re: [IxDA] How to create interesting Portfolio?

Hi Amy,

I didn't send anything to anybody. I just posted a reply on the IxDA
site here:


The site decided to send it to you. Sorry for any confusion,

Blackberry Storm

I stopped by the Verizon booth in the mall the other day to try out a
Blackberry Storm, the new one with the touchscreen. I'm a current Verizon
customer, and my antique Moto Razor is about to do the El Croako. I'd heard
the Storm had a good browser and a great screen for viewing media. Since
Verizon has treated me pretty well and I've no complaints about their
service, I was curious about their new phone.

The guy at the booth let me play with theirs. I tried typing on it, and was
not very successful.

Content Display


Sub: Looking for ideas to display lengthy content in short area.

we have a page to display biography of an individual and the content is too long . It has several categories such as Personal, professional, achivements, awards etc. 

Please suggest what would be the best way to display the entire content in short area rather than showing in too many paragraphs.

Is it better to display in tabular format? or any other ways...

Thank You.

Question about "scannable bar code" on a mobiledisplay

From: "Dante Murphy" <dmurphy at digitashealth.com>

: A client has asked about the feasibility of displaying a scannable bar
: code on a mobile device, like a cell phone or PDA.

<snip - other questions>
: Have you ever heard of or seen this in action?

In the UK, I have heard that you can buy train tickets for trains that depart from a specific station (Marylebone) and have a bar
code appear on your mobile device.
