Another experience prototype short, for those interested in the genre.
Purpose to articulate and visualize a product concept in context of use. Not
for external audience, but for internal assessment and buy-in. Shot and
produced over 3 days by 7-8 ID & VC students in my Design Scenarios &
Simulations course at KU Design. Problem involved spotting opportunities
for messaging in school environments where mobile phones and text messaging
devices are prohibited. Students are credited at the end.

Zip Code Entry

Our web site, http://www.tires.com, requires the user to enter a
zip code before we can show product. This is due to product mix,
availability, and pricing.

My question: Where in the site flow is the most appropriate place
to ask for the zip code? Where would we get the least site bounces?

Some sites, such as http://www.autotrader.com request the zip
code on the home page.

(for forwarding)

In a classic case of reperceiving the present via a very-long-now
perspective, Alex Wright invokes examples from evolutionary biology,
cultural anthropology, mythology, mysticism, the history of printing,
scientific method, 18th-century taxonomy, Victorian librarians, and
early computer history to get a fresh grip on what the hell is going
on with information thes

Silverlight pattern library

This post is to request that M$ make a (public) pattern library for
Silverlight. And, to ask that if someone knows of one they can share it with

The problem so far: I'm researching Silverlight and the substantial part of
it seems to be buried in *applications that require install*. I do not have
admin rights in M$ Vista, so I cannot see the work, thus I cannot evaluate
it, thus I cannot share it, and it is not easy for my team to make the case
for working with it.

I remember years ago when I could simply go to the MSDN section for Common
Controls and share those proto-design patterns.

Site-mapping visualization tools (to be run locally)

Hi Gang,

I've got a big sprawling site that I'd like to crawl and render as a
visual sitemap so I can get a better handle on some of the IA
concerns. I'd been doing it by hand on earlier versions, but its just
gotten too big.

Can anyone recommend software that will do this automatically?
Preferably something I can run locally (for privacy / security
