Re: [IxDA] where to use eye tracking?

I'm with Jared,   Eye tracking tells you about common user bahaviour, how people read pages and what they are likely to look at. If you're farily clued up on that already and know your theory it is unlikely you'll learn anything new.  Eye tracking tells you what people are looking at but not what they are seeing or what they comprehend.  Contextual studies and talking aloud during traditional testing will tell you far more than eye tracking can and are still needed to make sense of any eye tracking work you do.

States linking in Fireworks CS4

Hi Fireworksers!

I'm newcomer in the Adobe Fireworks prototyping and have one question.
In this product we have the powerfull pages, layers and states
(formerly frames) model -- I can prepare an interactive prototype in
various formats - html, pdf, Air, Flex and I can put hotspotes on
prototype objects and link this ones with pages.
Here is my questions -- can I link my hotspotes with states instead of
pages? I think the states without linking ability is the set of slides

Barely Used GuiMags for sale...or maybe Free to a good home.


GuiMags are clever rapid UI wireframe prototype tools, instead of drawing common elements like buttons, you just stick one of these common UI elements like fields, tabs, buttons etc.  Then use the   dry eraseable magnetic surface to give it a label.

Makes the UI much more consistent than handdrawing AND they can be easily moved around.

They are great if you like whiteboard sessions for IxDA, especially in a team.

Join us in 2 weeks at Interaction'09|vancouver: Registration is still open

It's getting exciting as we are getting ready for the final countdown to
the conference. I look forward to meet many of you in 2 weeks in

As we come down the stretch here are some final notes. WE STILL HAVE
ROOM for people to sign up for the conference and workshops. Airfare has
dropped significantly and the exchange rate from at least the US to
Canada is quite favorable. We are going to be about the same size as the
'08 conference so it will be an intimate experience where we can all
meet and interact with each other in great ways.
