quality of written text depends on the tool

Steven Pemberton cites[1,2] a study with the following result:

* Writing with a pen and paper, people produce less text, but of higher quality
* Writing with a computer, people write more text, but
- with a text editor they produce lower quality
- with a WYSIWYG editor they produce higher quality

Does anyone know the source of the study?

Web development practices - survey


I am doing a survey to evaluate the work practices and methods of web developers
in the hobbyist and semi-professional segment. The survey is part of my PhD
thesis at the Research Group for Industrial Software at the Vienna University
of Technology, Austria (http://www.inso.tuwien.ac.at/).

If you are involved in web authoring and consider yourself a hobbyist or
semi-professionalist rather than a full-time professional web developer, I
would greatly appreciate it if you could take the time and fill out my

Help the IxD12 committee make some good design decisions. interaction 12 | Dublin is well on its way to being organized and we want to make sure we meet all your expectations. if you can help us with the issue of physical give-aways I'd be greatly appreciative. There is even a question in here for prospective sponsors to let us know what they think.

hyperlinks vs. buttons in dekstop applications


1 - I'm wondering if anyone has found any official guidelines (I've looked,
but haven't found) or developed any personal conventions for the use of
hyperlinks vs. button in desktop applications.

For instance, in my current application, we provide some links to external
websites. This seems like a no-brainer to display as a hyperlink. But it
becomes more ambiguous. We had a Search and I wanted to provide access to
Advanced Search... I could show this as either a button or a link.

But within Windows and Office applications, the use of hyperlinks is
becoming more prevalent.

Boston IxDA

[EVENT] Reminder: Boston IxDA: Amy Cueva - Using Comics in the Design Process. This Thursday evening @ Autodesk.

Hey folks, hope you're coming this Thursday evening to hone your skills and
attend this fantastic workshop!

Many of the challenges we face as designers relate not to the quality of our
work, but the communication of our ideas. Boston IxDA is thrilled to host *Amy
Cueva,* Co-Founder and Chief Experience Officer at Mad*Pow, who will be
conducting a “how to” session on getting started with comics from a
strategy, process and tools perspective.

This event is open to all.
