Putting internet content to use on kiosks

KioskMarketplace has a good article online about the pros and cons of repurposing existing Internet content for use on interactive kiosks. A short snip:

"To someone approaching kiosk design for the first time, it almost seems like a no-brainer. You’re designing an interactive, self-service computer system, one in which the user guides the experience. You already have tons of content on the company Web site. So why not just port it over to the kiosk, and be done with it?

Indeed, many companies have done just that, and those kiosks — by and large — languish for want of use and value. Web content and kiosk content, although they may overlap in places, are two entirely different beasts — and it is important to keep those differences in mind when designing the customer experience."

I highly recommend you rest the rest of the article here.
