In Amsterdam, The Netherlands, there's Mediamatic:

They've organized workshops on RFID and Mobtagging, and designed an online
monument for the Dutch Jewish community. I believe they also hosted an
edition of BarCamp late last year.

FW: Registration UI

Dear All,

I had asked the question about Registration UI:

Is it better to have a single long registration page instead of split pages?
The single page, although scrollable, can give all the information required
at once and users will not have to wait for each page download.

Thanks a lot for your responses.

Let me share with you what we did meanwhile. We conducted a quick and dirty
usability test on the existing 4 step interface and proposed single page

DARPA interaction opportunity


I thought I would pass along this RFP from DARPA for two reasons:

1) to invite discussion about what an interface for the proposed system
might look like and how it might behave;
2) hopefully help one of y'all get rich;

With this small ado, here's some introductory text:

The decision aids will assist the commander and staff in generating,

Magazine recommendations

What magazines do IxDA'ers subscribe to?

I subscribe to the standard ACM/SIGCHI/AIGA pubs,
but are there any other good pubs out there?

I picked up a copy of "Web Designer" that had
some pretty interesting/innovative Web sites...
And I've heard something about "How"...

For those interested in the convergence of art and design ... (this case around typography)


This blog post is an interview with an Israeli typographer who does both
typographic artistic installations and type/font design.

What I really liked about this article is the great source images that they
got access to.

Select radio button triggering action?

We're working with a vendor on a Web application for searching for a
doctor. The first screen requires the user to chose from 3 options:

How would you like to search?

o Search by medical condition
o Search by doctor's name
o Select a saved search

The options are presented as radio buttons. Selecting a button
immediately triggers the action to load the next page. I think this
would better be handled with links. Is selecting a radio button to
initiate the action a standard behavior?
