FW: [interactionarchitects] Re: process ... the next generation

The developers I encountered so far love to trow prototypes away but
refactoring is generally seen as a waste of time by the management - if it
seems sellable, it's good enough. Time constraints. 20-80 percent rule,
blahblah. In the company I work for now, we made the management sign an
agreement with the projectteam to allow us to trow away the entire pilot
version of the product we're working on.

Quality under pressure was: RE: Prototypes, process, and ID

I like the idea of an award system but that might lead us into a
whole other kettle of exclusivity problems. What has worked well in
the past has been 'site of the day' awards or perhaps a review site?
Boxes and Arrows is my first guess for setting up reviews, but I
don't see why we couldn't do it on our site.

How does that sound?

Qualitative Research Consultants Organization

Does anyone on this list know anything about this
group?

http://www.qrca.org

I just came across them yesterday. I do a fair amount
of qualitative research, as, I imagine, do many of you.
This organization seems more focused on a traditional
vision of market research.

Prototypes as documentation?

Are others finding themselves in the quandry that was expressed in a recent
article on B&A about how wireframes have become the final source of
documentation for design, engineering, and quality assurance?

Here's the link:
http://www.boxesandarrows.com/archives/the_devils_in_the_wireframes.php

I know I am facing this problem.

How are people dealing w/ this? What do people think of Liz's solution?

I think there is a line to be drawn, yes. I wouldn't be extreme about
where it was drawn, but I wouldn't want to be associated with something
that was a design disaster.

Subject: Re: [ID Discuss] Re: Prototyping

I should have been more specific :) I was talking about either new products
or entirely new features for existing products. Generally, the model
supports starting at low fidelity to get initial reactions with minimal
investment and moving through to highest fidelity (actual product or
alpha/beta version) before release.

ADMIN: how to set digest?

Hiya, a lot of people have been sending in requests for information about
how to set digest mode, so I thought a bulk send might be helpful.

Send an e-mail to: discuss-request at interactiondesigners.com

"set digest plain" (plain text, muddies up attachments)
"set digest mime" (richer text, allows for attachments)

...to turn off digest
"set digest off"

For all other settin
