Richer distributed apps (was RE: web design)

Andrei chimed in w/
<<While I did all the design work to make a frame-based chat system work in
a web browser for the last company I worked for, all I kept asking
was: "This is silly. Why don't we just make a thin-client and do this
right?" The whole frames thing really is a serious band-aid, and generally
points out that one is trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.

Bite the bullet. If your web app requires robust interaction, dump the
browser and do it right.

Honoraria for remote usability study participants from multiple countries

I'm wondering how others offer compensation in remote usability
studies where participants are drawn from multiple countries. I've
been looking into PayPal, and we've used Amazon in the past but I'd
prefer not to tie people to a particular vendor/site.

Why not ask for *opinions*? (was "The old Play/Pause toggle")

> Can anyone point me to sources in which people have done
> usability studies of such a behavior in various interfaces,
> and how effective or not effective it is?

Why do so many list questions always begin with "Are there any studies
about...?" instead of "What is your expert opinion about...?"

It seems to me that quite often the question being asked is unlikely to show
up in any relevant research studies anyway.

New to the list: How to find an Interaction Design job

Hello all,

I am a C# developer in the Nashville area. After years of trying to instill interaction design principles into the company I work for, I have finally given up. This company develops software without ever consulting a single target user. The entire design process is left up the developers, and you can imagine what kind of product that turns out.

After going through a Cooper design course in 2003, I realized I was at the wrong company, but foolishly thought I could bring about change in the way we designed our products.

For those of us designing Tablet based stuff, this might be really interesting:

Bumptop is a new interaction model for working with objects that we
keep on our desktop.

I find the "pliability" demonstrated in the demo to be quite high, and
the engagement factor of manipulating objects in such a "real" fashion
to also be high.

Check it out! And be sure to watch the whole thing. I didn't start
really liking it until I got towards the middle to end.
