GDC San Francisco :: IxD meetups?

Hi Everyone,

I'm going to be at the GDC (Game Design Conference) in San Francisco from
3-17 March and I was wondering if there are any regular IxD meetups during
that time in or arround San Francisco. So we can have a drink and share some
realtime information on the field.

Met vriendelijke groet,

R. Groot
(Cooperiaans) Interaction Designer

So it works.
But can people work WITH it?
Interaction Design will set your users free (and so will make you a s@#$%t
load of money in the process)

Google Image search list new feature

Hi everyone, have you noticed, that Google renewed it's image searching
you can take a look at it for example here:


i used to look after images here, and a bit frustrating to me that they
have hidden information about the images such as size, width, height,
format... I don't know, I couldn't say i like it a lot.

Changes to Google Images

I just noticed that Google recently changed the way images.google.com works.
In the search results page they used to show image metadata (dimensions,
file size, URL, etc.) on page load. Now however, that data is only available
on an image by image basis as you mouse over. It makes the results page a
lot cleaner. Another subtle change is that if there are multiple images to
be shown from a single domain they are grouped and you get the "most
relevant" image with the text "More results from [domain name]".

designing for "everyone" (was: no subject)

The point of my example is that by designing well for one person, you serve
the needs of other people with similar needs.

Time Machine Shopping

What do people think of the time machine interface of the following site:


I really like it and I really hate it.... I like the way it looks and feels
and also how it is playful and the way it encourages exploration, but I
can't help but think that if I was seriously shopping then this would just
annoy me.


(P.S some background music would be good... as long as i had control over it
of course)

ADMIN: Reminder about guidelines for using subject lines.


In general, it might be good for folks to review the list guidelines.

Specifically, Ils like to remind everyone that using subject lines that are
relevant and appropriate is required by everyone regardless of whether or
not you use the digest version or not.

Recently someone posted without using a subject line.
