functional designer?

I wrote a post on my blog recently about software design which proposed
calling front-end design "interaction design" and back-end design
"functional
design" --

Audio feedback in HTML-based web applications

Hi all,

I am wondering if anyone has any thoughts/ideas/research on audible feedback
in modern web applications. The reason I ask is that it seems to me these
days that audio tends to be largely ignored, especially with the recent push
for more DHTML/AJAX/Javascript-based applications (as opposed to
Flash-platform-based apps). Is this partially because the technology just
doesn't readily support it? (Though Flash does, and there are workarounds
for the issue, like this one:
http://www.schillmania.com/projects/soundmanager/).

Less talking, more doing (was: Thoughts on Alan Cooper's Keynote)

Well put Scott. The "us vs. them" grandstanding and vacuous posturing
that has gone on in this thread is completely at odds with the
rootedness in facts and empathy that is supposed to be a cornerstone
of this field.

On a more general note, I'd like to point the list to a blog post I
just came across this morning.

UXnet NYC summary and call for others to comment (i.e. Memory help)

http://synapticburn.com/comments.php?id=51_0_1_0_C

The above link is to my pretty weak blog entry about the UXnet event I
organized earlier this week.

I was talkin' a lot and not takin' good notes as I should have been if I
wanted to blog about it, so I put up some cursory notes, and would love for
people to fill in the blanks with their own thoughts and summaries in the
comments area.

Redesigning the milk jug

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/30/business/30milk.html (Free
registration required)

Interesting article on a redesign of the common milk jug, its
environmental impact, and the reaction of the consumer.

I'm again reminded that change management is a fundamental part of
Interaction Design.

article on interactive identity

I wrote an article on the future of Corporate Design and how this
discipline relates to Enterprise IT, Intranet Design, Software User
Interfaces, and the expected rise of the consolidated Information
Workplace.

http://www.guenther.cx/index.php/a.Interactive+Identity

Since my thoughts on those topics are very much inspired by some
discussions on this list, please let me know what you think.

Breadcrumb trail at the bottom of the browser window

Inspired by the recent Cuil discussion I've made a breadcrumb trail that's
always visible at the bottom of your browser window.
I'm testing it on an intranet where:

• users spend anywhere from five minutes to several hours every day

• there are thousands of pages in many folders, etc

• the built-in navigation scheme isn't always consistent, due to different
products/portals/systems being used

Lessons so far:

• with just one consistent navigation item at the bottom of the viewport,
it's easier to leave out all those top, left and right menus and concentrate
