Interactive Sketching Notation
The Interactive Sketching Notation is an emerging visual language which intends to enable designers to tell more powerful stories of interaction.

fluidIA is (was) an emerging agile design tool for prototyping rich user interfaces. It was started as an open source project which was also designed and developed during my studies.

It's source remains over on github.
