[QUAR] What tools do you use for prototyping?

How about a working definition of 'prototype'?

Prototype -- 'A visual approximation of the form and/or function of an
intended finished product with a level of fidelity appropriate to the
project lifecycle and intended audience.'

Such a definition acknowledges that there is no single method of prototyping
that fits every situation. The definition also suggests that the prototype
serves the project but it is not the final deliverable.

So, a design mockup would function as a prototype with a certain degree of
suggested function.

Seeking speakers [designers, urban planners, architects] who are working in community design...

During the Interaction 12 Local Leaders workshop in Dublin we are going to explore how we can design richer interaction design communities in our localities. It is the aim of many local groups to be more than event planning organizations. We hope to foster community and dialogue outside of events and serve as hubs for knowledge around our discipline. As such, we are looking for urban planners, Design Council members or other designers applying design thinking and methodologies in their communities to speak to the group about their approach to communitybuilding.

userID name generator and length

Hi all,

I would appreciate if you could all share your insights on the following question:

What is the best practice for generating user ID (userID at something.com) and the ideal acceptable length of userID?

The user ID is generated for the consumer-level mobile device.
As a rule of thumb, I am setting to what is visible on the text field (15char max) and maybe 5 characters more to attach server generated "number" if the user ID already exists.

my new mobile UXD blog

I've decided to enter the blog space. I have a new UxD blog at http://mobileuxd.blogspot.com/.

It will deal primarily with mobile UXD but also touches on other UxD issues, but it is also a personal blog.

Re: Reset Button Icon

RE: Reset Button Icon

If you're stuck in finding an icon do revisit the task flow and
the task goal, see if you can find alternate routes or solutions.

Also, consider an On-screen button.

this feels like a very interesting resource. I didn't dive too deep, but the
idea and design style intrigue me.

Back Button: How to design for it?

My team and I have been running into the problem where our developers are
seeking to disable a user's ability to use the browser's back button.
Reason being, that pressing the back button in a web application runs the
risk of multiple submissions.

Has anyone had to deal with this type of situation and what were the
solutions or compromises?

Sketching with PowerPoint? Was: How is MSdoingPrototyping?

LG> I would argue in favour of whiteboard over paper for evolving
> sketches: easier to make changes as you sketch.

Whiteboards are excellent (+) for collaborative dynamic design sessions &
presentational environment, but awkward (-) when trying to capture the
content or transfer it to another platform. Smartboard does both transfer
and communicate (+) --- but at a price (-). Neither whiteboard nor
SmartBoard are particularly mobile (-).
