ANN: Site Search Analytics workshop (Sunnyvale, Boston, Chicago)

(apologies for cross-posting)

This spring I'll be teaching a new day-long workshop, "Site Search Analytics
for a Better Experience". I won't be focusing on tools and transactions;
rather, I'll demonstrate how this method can help designers of all types
diagnose and fix problems with their sites' navigation, search, content, and
interaction design.

electronic Tattoo display.

With the Nokia conceptual video fueling some interesting discussion, I
thought I'd throw this out there as something perhaps even more
removed from our normal
approaches to design, but...well...it's not entirely implausible that
real application of this technology could come about.
Crazy kids...

Jim Mielke's wireless blood-fueled display is a true merging of
technology and body art.

Emotional Response Testing

Hi everyone,
Our User Experience team at work is looking to begin Emotive or Emotional
response testing on our internal web applications in the near future. We're
starting to do some research on the topic to build out our methodology
around this type of testing. So, does anyone have pointers on the subject,
any presentations you've seen that are worth checking out, maybe some
methodology that people are familiar with that could provide some insight?
Is anyone out there now using a version of the Repertory Grid, Emotional
Heuristics or just a great way of capturing user satisfaction?

currency.
