  • hi bill, thanks for explaining. i've heard your UX Week 2007 talk and some of the slides look familiar to the material but the titles don't match (Learning Interaction Design From Everyday Objects). probably it's another talk but i like the subject and i liked your talk. can't wait for the audio for this one!

  • Reds: (this will all make more sense when the audio is sliced in of course...) Re: slide 91. Two ATMs clearly manufactured by the same company because the button tooling is identical. However, they let individual banks reorder and recolor the control buttons. It would be better for everybody if a design language was implemented to make the interaction the same across products. So are you designing products or designing a system? Does that help?
