Re: Morality and Windows UI Compliance

Carl,

The Mac interface is hardly better than Windows. The differences are
mostly trivial. I have written a number of critiques of it.

You ask for alternative guidelines: Have you seen my book?

"Also, we're in business, our customers demand
> windows compliant stuff - and yes, this is exactly what they do demand
> however unfortunate that is."

I am in business, too.

Fwd: Re: RE: IxD & ID

Hi all,

I've produced couple of Interactive storybooks and in my reflection on
my work, I see my self more of a storyteller than a designer.
Basically I design digital worlds as writer creates fictional worlds.

It's a question is that I do either
· a product (digital interactive system) or
· a production (movie, cartoon, a play) or even
· an artefact (digital book).

When you are in production, you don't have a time to think, and you
take examples from movies, books, cartoons, puppet theatre, pop-up
books, toys, games and even digital systems.

Regards
Mitja

Windows Control - Status indicator

All,
I am working on a development project for a Windows application (not web-based). The target audience is an average Windows user that will be using the application for 6-8 hours everyday. The application allows the user to perform many different business tasks. Each business task could contain several steps. I am looking for a Windows control that will allow the user to quickly see what step they are in within the business task. However, I do not want to go with a Wizard approach since it will slow down the user and speed is critical.

Best Small Business Platform?

Hello.
I am looking to launch a boutique business website, which will initially offer sales for a single design product (hopefully more products will be offered in the future). Is Yahoo Small Business still considered the best platform for this kind of business? Does anyone have recommendations for how I seek out a great programmer, who can stick with me as a consultant as the business grows? 
Many thanks for your thoughts.

Heidi

Adaptive user interfaces, Magic Ink and contextual awareness

Hi

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.
