Examples of excellent interaction design NOT on the web

OK - slight diversion, since it's not design for the web, but I had to
share this. Was just catching up with a friend with whom I've worked in
the past, and she shared the most exciting project her team has finished


How cool is *that*?

Agile & UCD (was Thoughts on AlanCooper'sKeynote)

Ugh, that last part was worded wrong:

You could do this pre-work in time it takes to do 2-3 development sprints. But, you have explored more designs then you ever would have been able to in over a dozen development sprints.

That should have sad:
You could do this pre-work in time it takes to do 2-3 development sprints. Without this prework, it would take you over a dozen development sprints to explore the same design space.

Why people still think that it is necessary to name links "click here"?


I am a graphic and interactive designer and I just started a blog about usability with a webdeveloper. So, I would really like to hear from you guys. Suggestions, comments, constructive criticisms, are very welcome.


I hope you like and find it useful. :)

Many thanks,

Adaptive user interfaces, Magic Ink and contextual awareness


Shamefully late, I've come across the Magic Ink essay by Bret Victor[1]. I'm interested in his proposal for an ecosystem by which applications might promote sharing of topic and thus contextual awareness.

I can see this came up on this list back in 2007, but is anyone aware of critiques of this approach; implementations or attempted implementations; or other relevant material I could check out? I'm considering producing a dummy implementation of his proposed ecosystem to test and play with, and I'd like to know what's been done here already since he first wrote his paper.

Re: Designer mobility to management (was ixd curriculum)

Hi Prady,

Interesting post. I wonder whether a correlation between variables is being mistaken for a causal relationship between them?

For the sake of discussion, let's take as true your perception about the negative correlation between design education and movement into management. A design education background is not likely a cause for comparatively low rates of migration into management (not likely to "handicap" one).

Req: Reference on readability of centered vsleft-justified text


Not exactly, but here is a reference to a website for a book that
does discuss text alignment.
