How to convince customers to participate to a user testing?

Hi!
In our company, user testing with real users is not systematic and our
customers are not used to be solicited for this.

Once we agree with stakeholders to do user testing and once we are in
contact with sales people, we have to convince customers to find users who
would participate.

How to convince our customers?

studying interaction design

hi

i've been working for 3 years now doing interaction design for
websites and web apps here in buenos aires

there's no institute to study here, and i really want to attend
college, but for the prices ive seen, its totally outside of my
budget (a pretty high sallary here in argentina is 20k dollar a
year), i've contacted carnegie mellon, but understood that there are
no scholarships for undergrad students.

what would you suggest me to do in order to study interaction design?

thanks,

Nicolas Cohen

Pure Text based interface for search.

Hi all,

I am working on a mobile interface that provides a text-only interface. The
interaction is purely text-based. No images, no hyper links.

I am wondering if anyone has done a project similar to this and is there any
pattern or guideline for this type of interaction available?

As of now, the existing interface provides the summary of search result as a
numbered list, and the user types in the corresponding number of the desired
result to view more detail.

Thanks,

Won Sun Parque

Chicago IxDA - Design PatternLibraries

There was a thread on the IA discussion list about design patterns. One
thing that arouse from that discussion was the storage of this library
and the integration with design tools (ie. Visio).

[Event] Chicago IxDA - Oct. 10th - Design Pattern Libraries

If you're in the Chicago-land area, please join us for our first
topic-oriented event!

Topic: The 'WHAT', 'WHY' and 'HOW' of design pattern libraries
No one seems to be talking about pattern libraries these days, so we thought
we'd be the first to... oh, wait.
Ok, so everyone is talking about them. But WHAT are they? WHY are they worth
our consideration? HOW do you create and utilize one (and how far do you
have to go for it to be useful)?

Presenter(s): You...and the well-stocked audience.
This is not the event where you will only hear one perspective on this
matter.
