Icon for integrity...

Looking for a bit of creative stimulation here, if you all don't mind.

Trying to craft a Shortcut icon for a product that is designed for "document
integrity". I figured I can't use a document, because - well that would be a
document and not an application shortcut.

Any visual ideas or inspiration would be gladly appreciated - my brain is
totally drained right now!

Godigi or other mobile usability testing solutions

Does anyone have any experience with Godigi?  We received a solicitation email from them.


It looks like they sell a camera for doing usability tests on mobile devices -- has anyone used it?  Or any other products or services from them?

Product usability research with cogntive-impaired people

I wonder whether there are people on this list have experience in
conducting information gathering and/or usability evaluation on products
designed for people with cognitive impairment, such as people with
dementia. One challenge here is that some traditional usability methods
can not applied to this population appropriately, for example, cognitive
walkthrough, interview, survey, focus group etc., although this depends
on different development stages of the disease, and the caregiver can
used as a substitute.

Bring your OLPC XO laptops to Interaction08!

I just got my new OLPC XO laptop as part of their Buy 1 Get 1
program. I wanted to let my friends and colleagues know about this
great effort techno-charitable initiative (though I'm sure many, if
not most of you are already familiar with it).

Perhaps like me you've been following news stories about the One
Laptop Per Child initiative that was started by M.I.T. Media Lab's
founder, Nicholas Negroponte. The laptop they've produced was
designed by fuseproject in collaboration with Design Continuum.
Pentagram also did some of the design.

Ever had a moment when you’re presenting your detailed design work and
you get an unenthusiastic "Is that it?" from your audience?

This can sometimes happen when a project has been in design
development without conceptual feedback or consensus-building. We
often move forward rapidly with our detailed design work due to time
