I think it's time we challenged this notion. Combining a physical
object with a microprocessor doesn't get you a computer, it gets you
something else: a physical object that can demonstrate different
behaviors.

Ecommerce web site book recommendations [signed]

There's always Alan Cooper's "The Inmates are Running the Asylum". Again,
not entirely about ecommerce but about the impact of software developers and
usable design-well-unusable design. Very readable-one of my favourites: what
do you get when you combine a computer and a battleship?

Results of the IxD Survey

Here are the results! Thanks so much for the great response. One
thing: I wanted 50 responses and somehow SurveyMonkey let 51 through.
At any rate:

Very interesting results. I'm sort of kicking myself for not adding
"contextual inquiry" to the list of user-research methods. Several
people added it in the "other" category. :)

Thanks again!

Proposal: create separate IxDA jobs & events mailinglist?

Yes, I agree: some 'categories' would help.

I feel like I keep having to pull the leaves apart to read the conversation
here.

What about a separate "Noticeboard" list for jobs, conferences, events, etc?

What do people think?
