IxD deliverable and One-person show Was: buy-in, consensus, etc.

Shifting gears> So what are the deliverables of the interaction designers
'after' the design is approved (by whatever process). The architect
delivers the plans. The product designer delivers the third angle
projected drawings along with separation lines (perhaps ProE models is
more like it these days), colour shades and assembly instructions. What
does an IxD deliver?

[PLUG] Webinar on Recruiting Users for Research w/Dana Chisnell

Hello everyone,

I don't often promote our events on this list (figuring you're sick of
hearing from me as it is), but because there's been a nice thread about
paying testing participants, I thought I'd mention today's UIE Virtual

For those of you who <snark>still believe that it's important to get
feedback from your users during the design process</snark>, you might be
wondering how you recruit these folks to be part of your research.

In today's online webinar, Dana Chisnell will be talking about the
recruitment process, from soup to nuts, including some advanced techni

info on Button Behavior

hey all -
i need some help here! Scenario: ... when in a 'searchlist display page'
that runs into more than one page, and at the last page :- would you disable
the "Next" button? i have a reason to say why not "... that coz I can use
this instance to give the user information why there is no content to
display" ; i was wondering if it would be rude to the user to disabled a
button .... - i'm looking for a good reason to leave the button disabled ...

any takers? ? ?

Ignorance, or just poor terminology?

In the past, I have considered Palm to be a company that understands
and employs good design, both the industrial and interaction flavors.
I was disappointed to read this quote by there CEO:

> BARCELONA (MarketWatch) -- Palm, Inc, the maker of the Treo smart
> phone, will continue to focus on ease of use and reliability rather
> than design, Palm CEO Ed Colligan said in an interview at the 3GSM
> telecommunications trade show here.

Focusing on ease of use rather than design?
