Introducing ID+, a very early networking concept

Hi group.

I'm posting after quite a long absence to give you early sight of a very
*very* new networking concept that I've invented in the last few weeks.

For now, I'd ask you not to promote this outside your immediate
contacts, because the infrastructure on the site is not quite ready (I'm
building a new forum to manage community discussions, which is almost

Improving task flows

I've been trying to add more context to task flows.

I think more context is better, and I'm also gearing up for
documenting asynchronous web apps (RIAs and Ajax).

To add more context to task flows, I've differentiated between active
and passive tasks.

Branding and User Experience Design - Panel in NYC

NYC Usability Professionals Association presents:

Branding and User Experience Design

If the "brand is the experience" online, then what kinds of user experiences
should great brands be seeking to deliver -- and how do they create them?

Building a well-branded site draws on many aspects of design -- a website's
look and feel (graphic design), the way a site is organized to convey what
the brand deems most important (information design) and actually shaping
experiences in the information architecture that deliver on objectives
(interaction design).

Re: Narrowcasting (in reply to Ischai Cohen)


in reply to Ischai's question on public display screens, you might be
interested in some of the papers referenced here:
www.dynamo-interactive.com (maybe paradiso's acoustic knock tracking).
I've recently finished working on the above project and I've just
written my PhD thesis on this (summary at www.ux-design.net ) so you
might have luck if you browse these.

hope this helps

Fwd: Statistical analysis in interaction design

Just to assist in moving the dialogue a little, my own recent work used a
combination of the following techniques:

- Simple Cross-tabulation of recorded data to aid in 'understanding' the
data set;
- Determinant analysis of the data set to sort out the meaningful
(independent) from the non-meaningful (dependent) variables;
- K-Means clustering analysis of the independent variables (three in total)
to create 'groups' of data records
- multi-variate analysis of variance (ANOVA) on the independent variables
for two sub-groups (by location of recording) to test for significant
difference be

IxDG One-time Face2Face in Tel Aviv, Israel on May 23rd

I'm going to be in Israel, and thought it would be a great opportunity for
me to have an informal gathering with many of the Israeli designers who are
part of the IxDG community. No fancy presentations or anything like that.
Just a social gathering of designers.

We will be getting together on Monday, May 23rd @ 7 PM in the relatively new
part of the Tel Aviv port.
