http://tinyurl.com/kvj36

David Armano, Creative Director at Digitas in Chicago, and blogger @
Logic + Emotion (see above link), lists all the things that he feels are
relevant that he learned in D school and how he learned it especially in
D school.

I particularly liked the following:
See things differently
Build Something
Face Your Fears
Embrace New Experiences

Anyway, like most of David's postings, this is a good one and with all
the people asking about D schools vs.

designer/programmer ratio?

Hi -

I'm looking to find out the desirable ratio of design staff,
including IxD and visual design people, to programmers. It seems to
be a common phenomenon that small companies in the software industry
compare themselves to companies with large dedicated design teams (ie
Apple, Google, Yahoo), while allocating scant resources themselves to
design.

I'm wondering if those who have (or have seen) a good balance could
share what they consider an ideal breakdown to be. I realize it may
vary depending on the work...

thanks -

Michael

What do IDx people think of the new NYTimes NewsReader?

"3. Can you point me to a favorite article that explains why I want a
newsreader? Or write one yourself? On two attempts to get the fever, I
gave up. This, despite the fact that I spend most lunchtimes reading
stuff from the web... that I print out and read while walking."

E-Paper is the one technology that I've been waiting for many years to
mature but never quite lives up to my imagination.

How to prepare an Interation Designer Portfolio?

Hi everyone,

I'm planning to prepare a portfolio for my upcoming job search. Since I'm a
recent grad and don't have much industry experience, I won't be able to
show any commercial product or corporate website I designed. However, I
believe I can show my interaction design skills and usability knowledge
through my past school and side projects.

The questions is how?

Interaction designers are not like visual designers who can easily show
their skills visually. For example, graphics designers can show the
logos and icons they designed through images.
