Magnetic interface design toolkit
Building prototypes with this tool might not be ideal, but it could be useful for workshops and brainstorms - if it's big enough. Anyway, here you can buy your very own Magnetic Interface Design Toolkit Ė maybe just for the fun of it.

I just found this nice portrait of Jakob Nielsen in an article at the BBC News site.

The article is about a web design exhibition at the London's Design Museum called Web Wizards, featuring Joshua Davis, Yugo Nakamura, Danny Brown and others.

It seems that Joshua Davis doesnít quite appreciate the work of Jakob Nielsen:

"He rubs me up the wrong way. By saying we should all embrace standards, he would create an internet where everything was concrete and unforgiving. His ideas don't promote growth, they stifle creativity. We are at opposite ends of the spectrum."

"I once sent him an e-mail - that he probably still has - saying that I'd beat him up if I saw him."

I'm not saying that this is not a Jakob Nielsen
Derek R has replaced "shark" with "Jakob Nielsen" in quotes from the movie Jaws.

"Don't know what that bastard Jakob Nielsen's gonna do with it. Might eat it I suppose."

Enjoy-mooo-mercial
GUUUI isnít a Flash promotion site, but thereís a lot of talk about Flash and usability. And the Milko Music Machine from the Swedish dairy Milko is really something. You can produce your own music videos with the Milko cow as the star. Choose between metal, hip-hop and disco, mix dance steps, vocals and effects clips, and send your very own music video to friends and family. Everything is done with direct manipulation.

Milko has also made a follow-up Ė the Miko Muscle Machine - which let you produce your own workout videos.

Respect to the agency farfar (grandpa) who made this.
