Lightbox modal dialog boxes, your feeling about them?

My sense is that as long as it isn't overused, the lightbox dialog
works well for providing essential information and/or interaction
without taking a user out of their primary flow. There are some good
examples in Designing Web Interfaces by Bill Scott and Theresa Neil,
and I've seen additional examples in the wild recently. I think it's a
familiar enough pattern that users understand it right away and know
how to interact with it, though I haven't yet tested it myself.

I'm designing a process at the moment that uses a lightbox dialog at a
critical point in the sign-in/registration process.

iPhone Pinch Interaction - useful?

Dear All,

When the pinch interaction was demo-ed with iPhone, I had a pretty
positive response, but as I thought more about it and discussed with a
few colleagues around, I am not sure if that kind of interaction would
be very useful in a small device, or any other device where only one
hand is used.

I see interactions like sliders, scrollbars, light switches, joysticks
etc.. where people control the "degree" of something.. These are what
people are used to, where one end is fixed and other can be dragged to
control the value.

First IxDA F2F in Stockholm

We had our first face to face meet in Stockholm on the 17th and it
turned out to be quite successful. About 20 people turned up and we
had a great exchange of ideas and experiences.

The place (http://ag925.se) was just right for the event with a nice
atmosphere so we'll continue to go there.

That reminds me of one of my favorite jokes:

What do you call someone who speaks three languages? "trilingual" What do you call someone who speaks two languages? "bilingual" What do you call someone who speaks one language?
