(no subject)

I'm looking various ways by which other interaction designers gather
feedback from stakeholders during the design and development process.
What I'm looking for are some effective ways by which feedback can be
elicited and managed internally and externally. At the end of the day
is red pen on print outs the best solution or do software based
solutions like Acrobat's feedback tools work better in the long run?
I haven't seen many other options out there for my stakeholders to
associate comments directly to parts of of the page, any suggestions?

How to consult as an IxDA?

I was recently asked how to get started doing contract/consulting work
as an IxDA (what type of business entity to form, what standard agreements to
use, etc.).

Does anyone know of a good reference site for this type of information? Any good pointers? I know this has been discussed before but I've never paid that much attention to it.

"got used to" - research or studies


At my work we're gearing up to rebuilding one of our major applications to support new platforms, mobile, etc... The current solution has more than a decade of work in it, and with it, more than a decade of solutions that are suboptimal, out of time, or simply bad.

I have a really big fear that we won't be successful at fixing these and delivering needed changes, because sales/management stops us because "the user got used to that solution, dont do this".

Inline styles and the people who hate them

Sorry about the sensationalist subject line. I couldn't resist.

For the past six months I've been building a massive, consumer Web
application. I took over the development from a guy who was keen on
standards-compliant XHTML (yay!) and keeping every style rule in an external
CSS document (kinda yay). This worked great up until I hit line 6000 of the
external CSS doc and Dreamweaver started choking a little each time I saved.

Then I began grouping pages of the site into sections and creating CSS docs
for each section.
