Pardon my loyalty...

...but its my alma mater

>From the University Daily Kansan:
Starting in the spring, the University of Kansas will be the first to
offer masters degrees in both interactive design and design management.

In the past, there were only two universities in the country that
offered separate masters programs for each.

The ITT Institute of Design in Chicago offers design management and
Stanford Institute of Design offers in

Communicating value in Social Apps (was Wired gets Leisa Riechtl's "Ambient Intimacy")

The recent thread on Twitter is interesting.
First I love the concept of Ambient Intimacy.
I think that Twitter is a great example of attempting to do this.
I do think it fails on several accounts I mention in the thread.

But that said, Chris Fahey said this in the thread:
"It's a unique quality of Twitter and other Social Apps that it takes a
lot of time to understand what it is, what the community is like or how
the tool facilitates and shapes your personal relationships.

Wired gets Leisa Riechtl's "Ambient Intimacy"


This wired article talks about how Twitter actual does have a real
effect on the lives of those that invest in its participation. it
discusses how you get a new closeness with people that you wouldn't

Almost made me want to try Twitter all over again.

What's my issue with Twitter, is the lack of etiquette on it. People
can post too much.

Beta site issues

After looking for previous threads twice in a row on the IxDA beta
site, I feel compelled to point out a couple of things. Kudos to
everyone that has worked on it - it looks great - there are just a
couple things tripping me up as a user.

1) There's no search on the homepage, so you have to click a tag, wait
for that page to load, and then replace the search term with your own
and run the search.

2) Pages throughout the site load extremely slowly. It's intermittent,
but it happens.

zen of palm


It's still something make sense, while some of the principles looks quite
out of date. i re-read it while designing some mobile applications for some
project, and still find the engineering side of mobile application design
behind this great article(it's there for years).

IxD extended dance remix (and I do mean "dance")

Interesting article - anyone working on anything like this?


What I'm pondering: how does the discipline of interaction design change
when the inputs change so dramatically/when the "interaction" is more
gestural and freeform? How about the assumptions we make about what's
"intuitive" or easily discoverable, and what needs to or should be
taught to our users.

Experience with Axure RP?

Is there anyone out there who has been using Axure for
creating wireframes, sitemaps and/or specs who's
interested in sharing their experience?

We've been looking at the tool for our own use (we mostly
use Visio and Fireworks now) and are wondering just how
much more efficient it is for creating documentation, and
how it's working for others.

So how is it?
