E-Commerce Terminology Survey

Last week I asked list members to take part in a short survey regarding
terms I found while benchmarking e-commerce clothing sites.

a vague idea, while the balance of respondents (87.5%) had no idea.

Plackets faired a little better.

ixd curriculum

Anyone in the list interested in discussing what an
interaction design curriculum would look like, rather
then where we have all come from?

I am an ex-architect so I know that route and there
are some pieces there that work well.
