Looking for a row-entry design pattern

There's a pattern that I've seen a couple places - MS Access being the
one that comes immediately to mind - where a person is doing
row-oriented data entry and filling in one row then hitting return
causes a new empty row to be created automatically so the person can
continue data entry without having to go elsewhere for a special
"create new row below this one" command. Does anyone have other
examples of this pattern handy or better yet a description/writeup of
the pattern?

Update on Spam problems

Hi Everybody,

While we're working on a moderation solution for the spam on the list, the problem seems to be getting worse.

As a temporary solution we have disabled discussion thread creation for new users.

As of now all new users who have not been approved by a moderator cannot start new discussion threads. New users can still comment/respond to existing threads, and those comments will go into the moderation queue until that user has been approved.

Studio Fellowships


This podcast is really interesting to me. The idea that a studio would
create inside itself a "school" in this case a "fellowship" is very
interesting to me.

interface standards

new jakob article on his frustration with remote controls. made me wonder if
we should work together to create consistent interfaces across like
applications? I don't want to say standards, but is there a less rigid way
to help the user while allowing for creativity and innovation?

Re: Statistical Analysis Apps Usability

Hi Donna & all,

I encountered a thread in TidBITS talk regarding stats software for Mac OS. It touched on usability, among other topics. You can find the thread at the following URL.


I've used SPSS 10.x under Mac OS 9 because that was the version available a couple years ago when I was taking grad stats courses and the professor's examples were based upon its capabilities and UI.

At what point does a mailing list become counter-productive?

Here goes ...

First, I admit that I am not an IA but rather a developer who believes
in creating a synergy with IAs and designers to help solve our common

That being said, this list has become unmanageable.

There are great discussions happening here but it is becoming
increasingly hard to find them amongst the job postings, event
announcements, feel-good off-topic questions, and especially the
numerous snarky replies. I mean there were 15 replies to the Nannybot
etiquette post ...
